Quality Telecommunications Provider – What Should You Be Looking For?

Quality Telecommunications Provider – What Should You Be Looking For?

It’s fair to say that SMEs throughout the South of the UK are spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting a provider for their Telecoms. Is this a good thing? Or does that fact make it more of a minefield when trying to find the right solution for your business?

It makes sense to have a process to help you decide who fits your business best, and indeed who is going to deliver the perfect mix of competitive pricing, reliable hardware and software, and of course the after sales support that keeps your business connected to your colleagues and clients.

Clearly, it’s not all about pricing. Providers that offer the cheapest deals but fail to deliver on service can cost your business more than a slightly higher priced provider that responds when you need them to promptly.

We’ve compiled a helpful Quality Provider Checklist to support businesses in some of the key considerations when looking for an alternative supplier of Telecommunications.

Quality Provider Checklist

  • Are they a local, regional, or national provider?
  • Does the provider have few enough clients to be able to focus on my business needs fully?
  • What does their mission page say about them?
  • Can they offer the personalised services I need?
  • Do they support remote/mobile working?
  • What are their clients saying about them?
  • Who are their current customers?
  • Can they offer a Unified Communications Solution?
  • What level of after sales support is offered?
  • What process do they use to evaluate my existing solution and recommend an ideal alternative?
  • How do their prices compare?
  • Are they up to date with the latest technologies and innovations?
  • What do the suppliers they partner with say about them?
  • How simple is it to speak directly to the person you need to, when you need to?

Please let us know here if you think we’ve missed anything critical, would like to ask a question on the Quality Provider Checklist, or would like to speak to us directly about how Next Communications can help your business.
