Top 10 Tips: How you can Save Money on Your Telecoms Bills [via Open Source SEO Community Group]

Stuart Griffiths, CEO of True Telecom, broadband, mobile and telecoms service
provider, offers insider tips for hotels looking to save on their telecoms bills
and minimise those all-important overheads

  All for one and one for all

It can be far more cost and time efficient to keep your broadband, mobile and
telecoms billing together – make sure your provider is offering telecoms
bundles, along with capped rates and low recursive charges.

  The real value of integrated solutions

In choosing a provider with a wide product portfolio and ability to offer
integrated solutions, hotels can benefit from multiple discounts in one place,
including cost savings on mobile, broadband and calling charges.

  A agreement for your business

Businesses should consider opting for a provider who can construct a bespoke
agreement based on its unique telecoms requirements, catering for hotels of
different sizes and to suit its existing communication needs, as this will
ensure that no unnecessary charges are made and the business is getting the most
use out of its agreement. One size doesn’t necessarily fit all.

  Always look for a price guarantee

Businesses want to take out a telecoms contract safe in the knowledge that there
will be no nasty surprises down the line. Consider a provider that offers a
price guarantee or a robust price rise policy, to protect your tariff for the
duration of the contract.

  Stay sensitive to your usage

Keeping a close eye on your hotel’s telecoms usage can save you a considerable
amount long term, as too many active lines or unnecessary features in your
business can result in inflated bills at the end of each month. A good provider
should allow you to downgrade as well as upgrade your agreement to suit your
changing requirements.

  A specialist service

With a range of telecoms providers to choose from, ensure that any agreement is
tailored to your size. For example, as True Telecom specialises in telecoms
solutions for SMEs and the hospitality sector, they are well placed to offer
advice based on practical experience – constructing a cost-effective strategy
to suit your unique needs.

  Focus on the perks

Often, telecoms providers will offer hidden perks to their agreements, which, if
used correctly can save a significant amount. For example, free calls to
frequently called numbers can be useful if you call the same suppliers or
customers frequently, while free calls between landline and mobile numbers (if
they are covered in a telecoms bundle) can also save in communicating in a range
of different ways.

  Future-proofing your business

It’s important to ensure that your telecoms provider is consistently providing
innovative solutions to drive your business forward. From low cost IP solutions
to new technology or agreement types to suit your hotel business, look for a
provider with a proactive approach to upgrading your systems to stay at the
forefront of changing telecoms technology, offering an seamless service to your

  Your secret weapon against premium rate numbers

As SMEs can waste a lot of money calling customers or suppliers on expensive
numbers, it is important to make savings where you can. You can use the
following website to find alternative numbers to help cut your calling costs
dramatically (although as the site is crowd sourced, tread carefully with
sensitive numbers).

  Use all your tools

When making short or internal calls, look to harness all the communication tools
at your disposal, including instant messaging, email or free chat to get your
information across. These alternative communication products will ultimately
save your business money.
