Webinar - Are You Overpaying for Carrier Services? NACR Explores during Webinar
By Carrie Schmelkin, TMCnet Web Editor
Do you work at a company that has unknowingly overpaid for local, long distance, cellular and network services? If so, your ears might perk up to the fact that in a few weeks system integrator NACR is hosting a webinar titled “Overpaying for Carrier Services? Learn How to Cut Long Distance, Cellular With Carrier Services.”
NACR, a single source for sales, design, implementation, project management, and ongoing support, is the smart choice for communications needs, according to company officials. Each month, NACR hosts a complimentary, hour long webinar on topics pertinent to the business communications industry. Next month’s webinar, taking place at 2 p.m. ET/1 p.m. CT Oct. 13, will inform companies on how to optimize carrier services, improve quality of service for business and reduce costs.
“How do we do it?,” NACR officials ask in their webinar promo. “We analyze customers’ existing telephone bills. As a result of the analysis we provide recommendations on inefficient equipment and network redundancies to eliminate unnecessary costs. We recently reviewed a customers' network with 7 locations using two different carriers. Our analysis showed that many of the circuits in their network were not being utilized. This and other factors resulted in a savings for more than $17,000 per month!”
Companies are invited to attend the webinar in October to hear from Alyse Brady, NACR carrier services director, who will discuss the benefits of the service and the cost savings it can provide for businesses. Brady has more than 10 years of experience in the telecom industry and has previously sold carrier services. Brady knows firsthand the benefits that this service can provide customers, according to NACR officials.
Other items to be covered during the webinar include: ways that NACR can help optimize carrier services for your network by identifying inefficiencies and network redundancies; how options like T-1 trunks and SIP Trunking can be used to port numbers and reduce operational costs significantly; and how companies can get started with a free analysis.
