Projects and initiatives create a large amount of supplemental work that your team doesn’t always have the bandwidth or skillset to manage. We can augment your resources and shorten your learning curve in the process.
Your engineers's time is best spent on technology
Want to alienate a talented network engineer? Have them sift through thousands of pages of telecom bills and contracts. These tedious tasks leave network engineers stuck auditing invoices, reviewing contacts and driving projects with telcos as a ‘third job’. Alternatively, these administrative workloads are often distributed to financial analysts, accounts payable and other internal resources who may or may not have a background in managing telecom. Despite it being a large Operating Expense category, a dedicated telecom analyst is rarely hired until a company grows beyond 5,000 employees.
On average, non-engineering telecom administration tasks consume about 30 minutes per employee per year. The time and budget required means that an organization with 3,000 employees will generate nearly 187 days of annual work (about 28 hours per week) in telecom admin without a dedicated resource to take that on.
Let engineers focus on 'engineery' things instead of administrative minutia
For example, if you are converting from MPLS to SDWAN, we augment your team at each step to:
- Mitigate contract penalties on old services
- Place orders for new services
- Coordinate vendors and internal resources to complete install of new services
- Request RMA (equipment pickup) of old services
- Place disconnect order of old services
- Verify invoice for old and new services
- Update inventory & Visio
We have built similar templates and tools to aid in migrations, deployments, merger and acquisition integrations and other business changes.
