What to do when management says: cut mobility costs!

15 August 2016 by Michael Giffney 0 Comments

Telco costs are typically 3% of revenue, and one of the top five costs for Australian business. This makes them a prime target when management go hunting for company-wide savings. 


Cutting the cost of mobility will have a significant impact on overall bottom-line telco costs.  But there are many barriers to cutting the cost of mobility.

The speed in the growth of mobility, constantly emerging new technology, cross-function responsibility for the mobility budget, and a legacy of systems struggling to cope with increasing mobile complexity, often hamper the ability of Australian business to tackle the task. 

So when management says: cut mobility costs!, where do you start?

Up to 85% of company telecom bills are paid without any audit being undertaken.                                                                Aberdeen Group

A staggering 80% of telecom bills include hidden charges or incorrect billing.                                                                                      Gartner Research

It’s shocking but these are the findings of two of the most respected global industry research organisations, Gartner and Aberdeen Group.

Mobility billing is an obvious area where cost controls can be applied. There is also staff turnover, device optimisation, service plan optimisation, procurement, asset management...the list goes on...

But how to start?
