Industry: Retail Farming
Technology Assessment, Strategic Sourcing, Expense Management
One of the largest farm supply retail and service cooperatives in the United States with a location that serves over 1,200 retail outlets across 21 states, was seeking assistance with migrating a multitude of telecom services to one vendor.
In an effort to consolidate the billing, a redesign of their telecom services at each location would need to be done by performing an in-depth analysis of the existing inventory. This exercise would prove to be beneficial to overall costs savings by uncovering idle services that could be dropped due to old technology, and removal of unnecessary recurring charges and features.
Perform a detailed review of current bills to identify the use of each line currently being charged per site and confirm which lines could be optimized for better pricing or dropped altogether. Establish which features such as Non-Published, Caller ID, Call Block, etc. are being utilized or could be removed.
After each site established their position on their stores’ functionality and use for their existing lines, Bluewave was able to convert the lines to a more efficient carrier using a third-party vendor, with more competitive rates.
To save additional costs, a consolidation of bills was done which eliminated paper invoicing fees.
Unused features were removed saving $700 per month
Pending decisions to proceed with removals, we identified another $1,000 per month in potential savings.
Projected annual savings will be over $20,000 with an easier way to manage monthly spending.
