Telecom and internet technologies can become very burdensome for businesses. Between contracts, billing, legacy equipment, user issues and ever-changing technology advances, the time and experience needed to prioritize and then implement new services or equipment can be overwhelming and also pull essential personnel away from core business needs. Add to that, the work-from-anywhere demands, whether it’s home office, business office, hybrid or remote, which have made telecommunications even more complicated. Telecom support services may be the solution.
An experience Managed Solutions Provider (MSP) can not only help businesses save money by migrating the responsibilities of handling their IT and telecom products and services, but they also keep up-to-date on all of the communications options available so businesses don’t have to. MSPs specialize in helping businesses simplify and ease the burden of their cloud, voice, data network, mobility, security, and expense management needs. Below is a list of the many ways MSPs can help businesses thrive.
Telecom Consulting & Strategy
MSPs are a trusted advisor that can help businesses plan their short- and long-term telecom budget and strategy so costs don’t spiral out of control. They can provide an unbiased assessment of a business’s current plan and provide suggestions that help achieve business goals.
Telecom contracts list every service, circuit, router and phone line a business uses and are enough to make a person’s eyes glaze over. As a business’s single-point of contact, an experienced MSP knows exactly what they are looking at and can spot areas of improvement, enforce service level agreements and find hidden costs savings that may have been overlooked. They know how to get the best deal and stay on top of vendors to make sure they stand up to their quality of service guarantee.
MSPs can keep track of all a business’s equipment to maximize operational efficiency by controlling shrinkage and provide a starting point for new equipment procurement.
Help Desk & Support
Telecom issues often fall under IT or office secretary, but are those personnel experienced or knowledgeable enough about it? Outsourcing telecom support issues gives businesses peace of mind that an expert is handling the issue.
MSPs help a business’s internal team stay on track, control missed deadlines, cost overruns and supplier delays so telecom projects stay on spec.
Equipment & Services Procurement
