Domestic media bundles offering telephone lines, broadband, TV and mobiles from one supplier are everywhere right now. But what about business bundles?
And just as consolidating telephone lines, broadband, TV and mobile costs seems attractive in the home, the same benefits can be reaped in the office.
By sourcing all your telephone lines, call costs, mobiles and Internet connectivity – be that broadband, leased lines or Ethernet services – from one company, the cost savings will undoubtedly follow.
Cash-and-carry connoisseurs will tell you buying in bulk is cost effective and that is exactly how it works with networks suppliers. The more you buy from them, the better the savings. Calls between office phones and mobiles, and vice versa, are often free, as are calls between in-group business mobiles.
But the benefits do not stop there. By using one supplier, your accounts team will receive one single invoice which can be tailored to suit your accounting software. And if you ever need to report a fault or have a query, you will only ever need to call one number. You will immediately remove the stress of dealing with multiple bills and service providers.
Your fixed lines and mobiles contracts may not conveniently expire simultaneously – that would be too easy – but these services can be migrated as and when they do come up for renewal to create a truly consolidated package or business bundle.
