Cost Management Consultants conducts comprehensive audits of IT/telecom and utility invoices to put money back where it belongs – in your company's pocket.
Our Audit Services consists of two primary components, the "Billing Audit" and the "Cost Savings Action Plan":
We review your past IT/telecom and utility invoices for unauthorized charges, billing errors and overcharges. Where errors are found, we negotiate directly with your utility providers and obtain refunds and credits for you. There are no out-of-pocket costs to you for this service.
Cost Savings Action Plan
We verify the accuracy of all your current rates plans, fees, surcharges, and taxes. We then prepare a "Savings Proposal" .where we analyze your current IT/telecom and utility usage and make suggestions that optimize savings without sacrificing service or efficiency. This is done at no cost or obligation to you.
Many companies do not fully understand their IT/telecom and utility costs. The complexity of provisioning rate plans, lack of effective means of cost verification, obscure billing templates by carriers, and the absence of trained billing specialists at the company level contribute to this problem. Unfortunately, this means higher costs and less profits. The one sure way to determine if you're getting the most from your utilities is a professional audit.
That's where we come in. Cost Management Consultants is an experienced auditing firm that exists solely to reduce your IT/telecom and energy bills. We feel that your money is best spent when you control where it goes. Essentially: why pay more for your utilities than you have to?
Our Audits will help determine past and present overpayments to vendors, and inefficiencies in how you're being billed. We often recoup savings retroactively, sometimes going back four years or more; and recommend how to save money in your business' future.
Other Ways We Can Help You
One of the many challenges in business today is how to manage costs from technical services such as IT/telecom and energy. IT/telecom departments or Facilities Managers are swamped with switchroom and plant maintenance issues. Most don't have billing expertise or the time to track down billing issues. Our solution to you is to outsource projects such as telecommunications billing management and local and long distance comparison studies, requests for proposals (RFP's), site relocations for IT/telecom and energy issues, and in-house training and personnel development to Cost Management Consultants.
Our services are competitively priced, and because this is our only business, we can complete the project in less time. Are you spending hours, days, weeks or even months chasing down vendor credits?
