Telecom Contract Negotiation

Although the standard contract term is one to three years, telecom pricing has historically decreased annually. In opting for an effortless renewal, a company can end up saddled with unfavorable market rates. In addition, the industry is advancing at an unprecedented pace, meaning new robust features, enhanced functionalities, and more connectivity options are rolled out regularly. We:

  • Negotiate contractual terms and language.
  • Leverage relationships and escalations.
  • Manage contract signing and archival.

    What about alternative technologies?

    We can look at your current solution and the proposal from the service provider. Sometimes alternative solutions can be cost-effective but may not be what is offered by your service provider. Often, we uncover better pricing from alternative providers and also ensure the highest available service levels by leveraging the countries vendor portfolio. Not many service providers do everything well, but most have a sweet spot—depending on the solution and geographic location—that will make them the best fit. We can get you the most favorable deal for that solution.

    Is your service contract at mid-term? 

    You find out a company similar to yours is paying lower rates. You want the same rates, but you’re at mid-term. Allow Simplatec to help, even if your current carrier says they can’t offer better rates.You don’t have to “wait out your contract” to negotiate better pricing. We can help even if your current carrier says they can’t offer better rates.

    With insight not readily available to in-house teams, we can save companies with two or more years left on their contract in excess of 20 percent—at no risk to the original terms and conditions.

    After requesting receiving an RFP, we can then help you negotiate your next communications services contract. Securing the best contract is not an easy task, as industry terminology, tariffs, pricing schedules, and service guides are confusing and time consuming for most people who are not in the industry. Having an expert on the team who is fluent in the language of communications is critical. Working on your behalf, we will give you the competitive edge and will help you secure the best contract terms for the best price.
