Com-Q- Tel is a private consultancy & auditing firm, that helps develop processes and protocols specializing in telecommunications application, cloud computing services and various industry related Internet solutions. Our Com-Q- Tel partner process enables us to connect our clients to the highest quality communications service providers for voice and data, T1, and T3's, while securing the lowest possible rate structure. Our services include bill and contract audits, rate negotiations, and vendor selection. We serve as a resource to companies seeking an analytical and informed vendor audit and vendor selection amid the complex telecommunications market where overcharging and overpaying is commonplace.
We execute a five-step process, assessment along with our recommendation process for each client.
1. Assess client voice and data needs
Our first step is always to develop a thorough understanding of our clients' telecom needs, both present and future. This serves as the lens through which we assess current provider relationships, and it informs any recommended changes. This initial meeting also serves as our opportunity to gather invoices and contracts from current providers to initiate the audit.
2. Audit current local, long distance and data invoices and contracts
We can often exact substantial savings from existing providers through the audit process. This includes identifying and rectifying any current billing errors, eliminating unauthorized or extraneous fees, and identifying rate reduction opportunities with the clients' current provider(s). We will manage all communication and negotiation with the provider.
3. Identify alternative suppliers for the clients' telecom services
We maintain relationships with over 30 preferred telecom providers which we screen with consideration of quality, cost, service capability, and the financial stability of the provider. Our analysts match our clients' needs with the optimal preferred vendors to form our recommendation process.
4. Provide a formal recommendation/implementation process
After we present the recommendation document, we implement approved changes on behalf of our clients, both with existing vendors, and any new vendors which may be added to the mix.
5. Monthly analysis of client bills with consideration for changes in the voice and data market
We continue to analyze our clients' invoices and contracts after the recommendation process is implemented to ensure that they capitalize on opportunities that the fluctuating market presents.
We are capable of managing all the telecommunications challenges. Depending on the requirements, a consultant along with representatives from the client will determine the service parameters and finalize a plan to accomplish desired results on an ongoing basis. Outsource all the telecommunications needs to us; or, like many of our satisfied clients, feel free to use us as your trusted advisors whenever the need for process arises.
