What does Telecom Optimization mean?
Our Telecom Optimization services ensure that business managers can understand and manage their voice, data, and wireless systems with superior efficiency.
The total cost of ownership for telecom services and network assets is a top-line item expense, yet these assets can prove to be one of the most unmanageable business expenses. At TelDesign, we know this does not have to be the case. Our services ensure that business managers can understand, optimize, and manage their voice, data, and wireless systems. We give them the knowledge, based on measurable data, and "de-technologized" language they need to make strategic business decisions about their communications infrastructures. At TelDesign we believe that, before any technology migration project is contemplated, the existing system should be optimized. Optimization may change the types of new technology investments or eliminate the need for new purchases. Optimization also provides an accurate picture of the value of existing telecommunications systems so that a solid business case can be made for technology migration.
Infrastructure Inventory Services
Most clients that engage with TelDesign begin with a consolidated overview of all existing voice and data telecommunications systems, services, leases, and contracts. An Infrastructure Inventory is an important first step to understand what you've really got in place, what it really costs, and how the services and fees are structured.
The final inventory is provided in a single, boardroom-friendly document that consolidates the entire view. The document provides the basis for:
Identification of obsolete and/or incompatible services Flagging of billing errors and/or contract/tariff violations A disaster recovery/prevention program Further analysis of areas where consolidation, contract renegotiation, or alternate fee structures may reduce costs
During the Infrastructure Inventory service we navigate the often confusing, complex, and sometimes redundant landscape of leased lines, services, equipment, billing information and contractual obligations from multiple providers. This comprehensive service includes (but is not limited to):
Leased services and facilities, including all voice and data, access lines, network access facilities, and leased network infrastructures across all service providers
Configuration of the leased services and facilities to define how the services are set up and structured, including all trunks and lines.
Pricing, which defines the monthly costs associated with leased services and facilities.
Cost allocation overview to illustrate costs per client location..
Contract review to identify the client's commitments and potential liabilities.
