Do you find your telecom and IT costs are ballooning? These areas of business are among the hardest to control expenses because there are so many assets and vendors to keep track of. It also doesn’t help if your contracts aren’t right for the company. You could be paying for more than what you’re actually using.
When you are in a high position within your company, you have a lot of responsibility resting on your shoulders. You may be managing people, projects, budgets, etc. or all of them at once. When your focus is pulled in so many directions, you need efficiency.

Running a successful business requires a lot of work and strategic decisions. A business should have both profits and expenses, but a successful one will have more profits. If you have more expenses, then your company is in trouble.

As more companies decide to enter the realm of IT, the market becomes flooded. The product you are selling is now being sold by a large number of IT shops just like yours. This reality can be bad news for you, or it could be a blessing in disguise. If you're the same as everyone else, your struggle won't improve, and you'll have a harder time closing business deals. On the other hand, it forces you to change, to differentiate your IT shop, and be better.
Today has been another hard day at the office. As a business owner of your own IT shop, you've spent the morning and afternoon trying to drum up business, but have mostly been met with a resounding no. You know why that is, too.
