When Savings Contingency Audits Fail Companies
A common way for small to mid-size companies to validate their wireless cost management efforts is to hire a wireless consultant to perform an audit. Knowing a reasonable probability exists that they will find savings, consultants typically charge a contingency fee on identified savings rather than an upfront flat fee because it is an easier sell and they earn more. Contingency fees can be 25-30% and can last from 12-24 months.
For some companies, an audit becomes a onetime event as they feel they overpaid for the work effort. The idea of having a third party expert review your spending is a plausible solution when a company can’t afford sophisticated in-house automation. Where this model goes awry is the excessive compensation for the consultant.
What if there was a solution that would empower your company to perform regular wireless expense audits using only existing in-house resources? What if your savings opportunity was quantified with no contract? What if you didn’t have to pay a stream of contingency payments? There is such a solution, MobilSentryDIY™.

If you think your employees are just using their business smartphones to communicate with corporate applications, think again. It is estimated that more than 50% of the actual data usage is spent on social media sites, news and entertainment, as well as streaming audio and video applications. It’s why we think if you could actually see the sites used by employee devices, you may change your views regarding company mobile device usage policies. The carriers don’t provide this information, but MobilSense can.
Mobile technology is an indisputably powerful and essential business tool. High bandwidth data-capable smartphones bring access to an exploding range of employee productivity applications. With the growth of mobility comes a corresponding increase in data consumption. Data usage once measured in MBs is now averaging multiple GBs per mobile device and that means an ever-increasing carrier invoice.
Broken out by category and quantity used, a snapshot of your employee data usage can be used as a training tool to help your company harness the exploding cost of data consumption.

If it is, we understand what an exasperating task it can be. With the carriers constantly changing their rate plans, it makes it difficult for anyone to keep their wireless cost ahead of the curve.
