Your choice of a telecom carrier is one of the most important decisions you will ever make as you jumpstart your business. In most cases, the full suite of telecommunication and telecom-related services that your company uses, ranging from your internet connectivity to your hard line business phones is facilitated and/or supported/managed by a single telco carrier. Choosing the wrong service provider usually means unending issues, poor connectivity, and low quality, unreliable service.
Your telecom carrier will most likely deliver your landlines, mobile phones, internet connection, and for those who still use them, even your fax service. In simpler words, your telecom provider keeps your business connected not only within your circles but with the rest of the world. This is why you need to find a service provider who has the best interest of your business in mind and offers tried and tested services that you can rely on. Here is a step-by-step guideline you can follow when hiring a telecom service provider to manage your communication needs:
• Before you face a mountain of choices of companies (large telcos and their resellers) offering all kinds of plans and services, it pays to break down your process into more manageable tasks like first working out exactly what types of telecom services you will be needing. Make a list of the actual services that your business must have. It is best to first limit your list to the most basic things like phone lines, mobile, and internet connection and make a separate list of other extras that would be nice to have and bring more value to your operations. Prioritizing your needs is important, so you can also set the right budget for each, which brings us to the next point:
• Work out your budget. Setting a budget is critical to contracting a telecom service. Decide how you can best allocate your budget between your priorities. A set budget will help you stay focused on what matters most and keep you from overspending on extras you don't really need.
• Don't hesitate to shop around and know your options. Oftentimes, telcos offer services in packaged bundles to help you save a good amount of budget (or sell other services you might not initially think you need). Either way, service bundles can be a good thing if you know which services will be most beneficial for your business and your operations.
