The Challenge

Although this US Based service company was relatively small, they had a complex telecom environment due to high volume call centers.  Their annual telecom budget was $2.6M and they had recently completed a VoIP conversion project. When the projected ROI on the conversion did not materialize, they reached out to IQT for a review of their new network.   

The Solution

The telecom experts at IQT performed a complete audit of telecom services, including the new VoIP platform. Once the inventory was built in our proprietary platform, IQT360° the savings became clear.  We aligned the customer’s business needs to optimize services. Two issues were found with the newly installed VoIP platform: an excess of Call Paths and noncompliance with contracted rates. IQT worked with the provider to optimize the call paths and align the cost with the contract. A third issue of services continuing to bill at closed location led to additional savings opportunities.
