There’s a margin of error with everything, it seems. Human error is a big factor and mistakes on your telecom billings can add up in a hurry.
Your budget really doesn’t have room to pay for other people’s mistakes.
But if you haven’t been diligent about bird-dogging your telecom billings, then you’re making costly mistakes, which means that other areas of your operation may suffer needlessly.
This post covers the 5 telecom billing mistakes you don’t realize you’re making every month. Let’s find out what they are.
Paying for defunct lines/equipment
This one’s huge. People come and go and when they go, is there an efficient process in place to disconnect lines, or transfer them and the equipment to another employee? Many companies believe that’s the case, but unused lines can remain on your billing – sometimes for months or years.
Why would you pay for something you’re not using, right?
Erroneous charges and 3rd parties
You can be billed for services like online calling and faxing and long distance calls on lines you’re not responsible for. If you’re not going through your billings with a fine-toothed comb, you can be missing a huge expense you needn’t pay.
Database and Metering mistakes
Machines make mistakes too and this one may occur for either long distance or local calls. Metering may result in double charges. But human error is in the picture if a transcription mistake is made. Sometimes, you’re charged for incomplete calls because of these glitches. Not knowing about them is costing you money.
Your contract renewal period is a dodgy time. Sometimes, you won’t get the pricing you’ve agreed on, because the contract’s provisions aren’t reflected in your billings, due to something as mundane as an administrative oversight.
And who’s checking?
