CarrierBid Communications, a full service telecom-consulting firm, introduces new web-based telecom Request for Pricing tool.
Successful telecom management begins with a properly structured telecom Request For Pricing (RFP). A well-crafted RFP establishes the parameters of a telecom negotiation. It helps define the services that are to be bid on and standardize the responses.
Telecom service provider contracts are notoriously one-sided with partisan terms and conditions. Unless you negotiate these agreements regularly, the carrier negotiation team will have a tremendous advantage. Without specialized expertise and access to market-data most organizations are doomed. Unfortunately most procurement teams negotiate these deals too infrequently and don’t have access to real-time market data and experience to produce market-leading agreements.
MPLS, voice and data networks, business phone and internet services, wireless devices and services, telephone equipment, data storage, security and backup is just a small sampling of the services that can included in a telecom RFP.
With RFPs, timing is key. Without the proper amount of time, no telecom RFP, no matter how well it is constructed, can produce favorable results. In the telecom industry, time equates to leverage. Limited time equals limited leverage.
CarrierBid’s new telecom RFP tool can produce better results in less time.
