What is telecom benchmarking?
Benchmarking is a term for measuring and in telecom benchmarking it’s the process of calculating and measuring exact telecom service specifics and performance then comparing them with market standards. Understanding the service types, service providers, maintenance and network availability, service terms and all fees associated are key in setting a standard telecom benchmark for your business. Auditel adds telecom spend usage calculations into our matrix and we measure the telecom usages and compare each with similar services to optimize telecom data and bandwidth. Auditel measures and calculates each telecom service including long distance, separating each type of service, and service providers fee against your best pricing.
Quality service and best pricing will reduce telecom budget but without service comparison we don’t recommend any benchmarking. Auditel prepares our benchmarks including service quality with optimum up times, determining service protection clauses against outages for best network availability (giving you the percentage of the time services will be up 99.9%). We also calculate any extra fees that may not be listed in the telecom contract or in services provided. Reducing telecom budget is important, but It’s not the only factor we compare. We care about cost reduction, but performance and service uptime is key to your business for maximum telecom reduction.
Auditel performs telecom benchmarking services upon request as we don’t sell any products or sell for any service providers. We don’t take any commissions from any service provider therefore we are unbiased in benchmarking making us the optimum choice to provide telecom benchmarking services for our clients.
Methodology is key: Over the years, Auditel has created a repository of customer rates along with their annual spending patterns. We identify best rates for customers by analyzing and calculating the spending pattern. We have studied varied telecom spends of our customers with hundreds of service providers across North America. After finding the best spend pricing, next, we measure service provider performance and network availability. Calculating the service provider network uptimes is key to best performance. Without best performance matrix calculation, pricing is not relative. Service is just as important as pricing!
