With telecom services being contractual in nature, the art of the RFP, or request for proposal, should not be overlooked.
If you are of the “if it ain’t broke – don’t fix it,” philosophy, then you may be inclined to renew existing contracts without question. However, in the telecommunications services industry, acquisition pricing is almost always better than retention pricing, so a fast and easy decision to renew without an RFP may lead your company to pay higher rates than necessary.
Your telecommunications consultant knows the ins and outs of the RFP, and can administer one on behalf of your company to help you gain the competitive advantage. With a telecom consultant administering an RFP, it lets the service providers know that they need to keep the pricing competitive. For example, your consultant may include a smaller service provider in the RFP, even though they are not necessarily the best provider to meet the needs of your company. This will likely influence the price quotes that you are given from larger service providers. Your company will not be a victim of inflated pricing or paying for unnecessary, unwanted services with a telecommunications expert in your corner to administer an RFP.
Telecom Contract Negotiation
After performing an RFP
After performing an RFP, your telecommunications consultant can help you negotiate your next telecom services contract. Securing the best contract is not an easy task, as industry terminology, tariffs, pricing schedules and service guides are confusing to most people who are not in the telecom industry. Having an expert on your team who is fluent in the language of telecommunications is critical. Working on your behalf, your telecommunications consultant will give your company the competitive edge, and will help your company secure the best contract terms for the best price
