New Seminar Scheduled: Essentials of Telecom Auditing

Essentials of Telecom Auditing is a 2-day seminar, to be held on October 25th-26th, 2010, at the Doubletree Hotel in Overland Park, KS.  Participants will learn the skills necessary to reduce and control corporate telecom spending throughout their organizations.

The state of the economy has prompted corporate organizations to seek ways to reduce corporate spending wherever possible. Telecommunications spending is an area that is ripe with potential savings opportunities, but it still remains one that is often overlooked by corporate executives and management.

“Based on our 39 years of experience in the telecom auditing field, we estimate that about 93% of U.S. companies pay more than necessary for telecom voice and data services”, says Karen Thatcher, President and CEO of TelCon Associates, Inc. This seminar is designed to teach the same auditing process and methodology that TelCon Associates has used to save clients tens of millions of dollars.”

Essentials of Telecom Auditing includes informative sessions on a wide variety of telecom cost-saving opportunities, including local, long distance, wireless, telecom taxes, customer service records, and more. Many of the scheduled sessions will be “hands-on”, meaning that actual bills will be shown, and participants will have the opportunity to identify problems on them before they are reviewed as a group. “I like to have people learn by doing, so much of the seminar will be spent examining and auditing real bills and customer service records”, says Thatcher. “I guarantee that seminar attendees will return home with the knowledge and skills necessary to conduct a thorough telecom audit that could result in significant annual savings for their organizations.”
