Service Inventory & Billing Audits
Many organizations have grown their carrier and supplier services over the years without keeping records up to date or properly managing termination of old service and installation of new services as decisions are made to adjust to changing needs and growth requirements.
Auditing and approval of telco bills is becoming more complex as telco service providers expand their offerings beyond basic carrier services like cloud offerings, SIP, mobile and broadband services and applications such as configuration and device management. As business needs change and employee's come and go it's not uncommon for items to get missed or overlooked. This results in wasteful spending and unnecessary costs. We provide the independent expertise you need to identify and stop erroneous charges, cramming, changes in tariffs, and installed services no longer in use.
If You Haven't Audited Your Bills Recently, You Could be Paying Too Much!
We will review your current infrastructure, services, costs, billing and maintenance contracts to identify potential for increased savings utilizing a proven process that uncovers overcharges, unnecessary fees, unused services and billing and tax errors. And we work with the carrier(s) to remove erroneous charges and fees, along with renegotiating pricing and terms if you want to keep your current provider.
In cases where new service is desired, we will negotiate pricing and contract terms with multiple providers for you to choose from.
Our process begins with building a detailed profile of your telco usage, needs and costs using our unique methodology and technology. Experience shows that this profile is essential to maximizing savings and ensuring the best result for you.
Eliminate waste (such as overcharges and services that are no longer required) or we can recommend new services that are more cost effective.
Assess your needs against today’s technology and service offerings and identify the best possible service options for your current and future needs.
And, we assist you to implement any agreed changes.

Are You Prepared for an Unexpected Cyber Attack?
The world we live in today offers newer challenges and threats toward the security of proprietary, personal and billing information. Ill-equipped companies face significant backlash and revenue loss as a result of an unanticipated breach. So, what should you look for? The answers lie in recent history (see more here on the worlds biggest data breaches). While security threats and attacks vary greatly, about 95% of threats fall into these categories. Let's take a look:
Physical Theft or Loss (over half of incidents recorded include in-office theft)
Miscellaneous Errors (non-public data to public web servers)
Web App Attacks (mobile phones are becoming an increasing problem)
Insider/Employee Misuse (typically driven by financial gain)
Cyberespionage (high focus on email transaction logs, attachment records & links)
Crimeware & Malware (highest threats include DOS, back-door and spyware/keylogger attacks)
POS Intrusions (first on the list is point-of-sale intrusions at over 28% of confirmed breaches)
To avoid potential security risks it's important to know where the holes are in your defense strategy. The slideshow below highlights key areas where we assist our clients in discovering (and fixing) potential vulnerabilities that can invite various data breach scenarios.
