Rapidly shifting technology is driving significant opportunities in telecoms supply-markets.
Telecoms, data and voice spend has rapidly escalated and can form up to 20% of an annual IT budget as organisations embrace new technologies with data-hungry applications and a shift to mobile and home working.
Telecoms supply-markets are highly competitive with underlying cost drivers decreasing. The telecoms expenditure of organisations should be decreasing but for many the reverse is true; Average Rate Per User (ARPU) is increasing.
Ensuring your telecoms spend follows decreasing cost drivers requires telecoms procurement expertise, constant spend management and a regular and robust commercial interaction with the supply market.
Procura takes a unique approach to telecoms.
Firstly a “rear-view mirror” approach to existing contract and usage to ensure that an organisation has only paid for what it should have - often resulting in a refund. Secondly we help to competitively source future requirements to drive forward cost reduction.
