GBQ optimizes internet and wireless services to save 27% on telecom costs

Largest independent accounting firm in Central Ohio

GBQ is the largest independent accounting and consulting firm in Central Ohio. As the firm’s telecommunication needs grew, GBQ’s management team wanted to better understand their data and voice usage patterns, improve throughput and find ways to reduce the cost of local, long distance, internet and wireless services.

The firm called upon telecommunication experts with Expense Reduction Analysts (ERA) for assistance.

Competitive tools used by ERA Consultants

ERA experts have access to benchmark data from 14,000 successful cost-reduction projects, in-depth knowledge of the telecommunications industry and a proprietary suite of procurement software and skills- rating tools used to issue detailed RFPs.

Using the client’s criteria, ERA analyzed and rated responses to its RFP. Consultants presented the advantages and disadvantages of each of the vendor’s proposals and explained how services would be delivered ─ based on the solution chosen by GBQ.

ERA experts’ recommendations included increasing internet bandwidth, optimizing wireless services by bundling local and long-distance minutes and changing the conferencing supplier.

 

“I recommend ERA to all organizations interested in improving their bottom-line profitability.” - Shaun Powell, Controller, GBQ
