PENSACOLA, Fla.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--With all the buzz around the new iPhones, businesses are looking to upgrade to the new devices quickly. But, before you run to the nearest iPhone line, make sure you are ready to negotiate your current plans and contract. Wireless Intervention, a telecom expense management company in Pensacola, FL, performs “interventions” for corporate clients to negotiate higher discounts, find unadvertised rate plans and billing errors.
“Our clients are surprised to find out that, although they just wanted the latest and greatest device, they can also get money for their old device and lower their current bill”
Corporate clients are not eligible for most carriers’ financing plans, which means a new contract begins with each upgrade or new purchase. That means 24 months of continued revenue, and, per recent quarterly reports, the average revenue per user is still increasing for the major carriers. With inflated revenues, comes stiff competition, and businesses may have more negotiating room than they think.
“The new iOS is a game changer and many of our clients are moving into the new iPhone 5S, but this is also the perfect time for negotiation. The iPhone is available across carriers now, and these wireless companies need to fight for your business,” says Jill Ferguson, Co-founder and Special Intervention Agent at Wireless Intervention. “Our clients are surprised to find out that, although they just wanted the latest and greatest device, they can also get money for their old device and lower their current bill,” Ferguson adds.
Device buyback is big business, with many carriers offering gift cards and credits towards a new device. But, Jessica Rhodes, Co-founder and Chief Intervention Officer notes, “Before you agree to your carrier’s buyback, look around for the highest dollar options. Some independent companies offer significantly higher cash buybacks than the retail giants. We always get several quotes before we choose a buyback partner for our clients, and the cash option is more advantageous for businesses, adding straight to their bottom line.”
Reducing expenses is synonymous with running a good business. Business owners and CFOs need to ensure their wireless bill is tight, and this is the perfect time to do so. Wireless Intervention is offering a free analysis for corporate clients, and, with an average savings of 20-30% per client, this just might be your golden ticket for reducing your 2013 business expenses. www.wirelessintervention.com
