IT departments today have a lot to think about – from rising cyber security threats to the costs of keeping up with the latest technology on ever-tightening budgets and complying with a myriad of federal, state, and industry regulations. On top of those concerns, you also have to make sure your network stays online at all times – leveraging multiple solutions from dozens of vendors.
It’s no wonder many IT departments and CIOs feel overwhelmed.1 Fortunately, there are ways to reduce stress and still make sure your organization has everything it needs to keep running smoothly from an IT perspective. Coordinated carrier services can help you streamline all your vendors and services to simplify the back end of your IT portfolio.
Find the “Goldilocks” Internet Service for Your Business
Does the search for the right internet services sometimes feel like it will never come with the ending you want? Every vendor you look at has something you don’t want or need, like high costs, services you won’t use, or not enough services to meet your bandwidth requirements. This gets especially challenging for multi-site organizations that have locations in different regions with different broadband and internet service carriers.
Even if you find the services you need from a vendor you can trust, you may still feel frustrated at how difficult it is to manage all of those relationships over time and coordinate among the various technologies and vendors to keep everyone connected.
Carrier services can help you find that perfect “Goldilocks” middle, where you get the exact technology that you need without overpaying.
Simplify the Billing Process With Carrier Services
In addition to managing multiple vendor relationships, organizations with several sites and a network portfolio with multiple carriers and technology services also have to manage billing challenges. Coordinating, tracking, and paying all your bills is hard even with a top-notch accounts payable department.
You may also be overpaying for services you don’t need or don’t use because you cannot review your contracts and invoices regularly to spot discrepancies or errors. These are costly to your business – and could be eliminated completely with the right carrier services solution. Third parties such as TailWind can consolidate your bills and vendors to ensure you’re only paying for what you use.
Aggregate Your Broadband Services
One of the biggest challenges for companies with multiple locations – from offices to retail stores – is coordinating services among multiple regional internet providers. Each one adds complexity to your portfolio with its own:
- Connection speeds
- Installation and setup
- Maintenance services
- Invoicing and billing processes
Broadband aggregation removes these headaches and helps you manage connectivity for all your employees, customers, and locations with one single vendor. Your carrier services provider will do all the work to coordinate these services while you focus on managing all the other IT challenges you face.
Get the Most out of Your Technology
The right technology should benefit your business and not drive your IT department crazy. With carrier services and broadband aggregation from TailWind, you can find exactly what you need from the right technology vendors and get help managing all those vendor relationships in one streamlined, simple bill each month.
