5 Ways to Cut Communications Costs

Updated: January 06, 2011

MARLTON, N.J., Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Businesses today have the daunting task of cutting their operation costs. While many have found clever ways to do this, there is one area that companies typically overlook ... and overspend on.

"Every dollar that you waste in telecommunications costs is money dripping directly from your bottom line," says Brian Flynn, vice president of Marlton, N.J.-based Xtel Communications.

"A company can effectively audit its telecommunications service and can do so in a manner where costs are cut while enhancing efficiency and performance," he says.

To help companies find savings, Flynn is offering up his inside knowledge and tips, free of charge.

These tips include:

  • What you should really be paying for in long distance.
  • Where to find hidden money drains.
  • When to buy hardware and when it's a waste of money.
  • Why you should or shouldn't consolidate vendors.
  • How to leverage your spending and negotiate with your vendor.

As the exchange of real time information is vital to businesses, many companies simply accept the cost of their telecommunications services. While that's good news for the $250 billion industry, it's not good news for businesses.
