Working with solution providers – like Spearhead.io — can be a game-changer for your business. Why? In today's fast-paced business environment, you need to stay competitive and efficient. One way to get there is to make your telecommunications and IT systems up to date and optimized. Choosing from evolving technologies, complex options and multiple vendors, however, it can be overwhelming to make the wisest decisions.
Solution providers specialize in providing customized programs and management to meet your most appropriate and practical telecom and IT needs. They help you navigate the complex landscape of vendors, cloud configurations, and technologies, offering valuable insights and guidance so you make optimal decisions.
Here are five key reasons why companies work with solution providers for their telecom and IT purchases:
Expertise and Experience
Solution providers have years of experience and expertise in the telecom and IT industry, offering valuable insights and the guidance to make informed decisions. They can analyze your existing infrastructure, identify areas for improvement, caution you against impractical moves, and recommend the best solutions to meet your needs.
You might make one big telecom decision or purchase a year. Right? Solution providers like Spearhead make hundreds, if not thousands, a month, building industry-wide data that allows us to better serve you.
Working with a solution provider can help you save money in the long (and short!) run. Solution providers can negotiate better prices with vendors, for lower rates and better service. They can also help you identify inefficiencies in your telecom and IT infrastructure, such as unused services, lapsed licenses or excess circuits. Lopping off obsolete or redundant costs means immediate and lasting savings.
When you partner with Spearhead.io as your solution provider, you can expect to save, on average, 23% on your telecom and IT spend.
Solution providers tailor plans and follow through to match your unique needs. You can choose precisely the right vendors and technologies to meet your requirements, and get guidance on how best to integrate new systems with existing ones.
Here’s an example of this in practice: a large national retailer was looking to implement a zero trust strategy on their iPad point of sale systems. However, they found that most zero trust solutions required buying individual licenses for users. With a constant fluctuating number of employees at the retail level, especially during holiday shopping in Q4, this was too difficult to manage. Spearhead worked with them to find a vendor and solution, flat-fee based, to meet their needs and budget constraints. By working with Spearhead, they were able to launch this program smoothly and profitably
By working with a solution provider, you can optimize telecom and IT systems for efficiency. Solution providers can identify bottlenecks and inefficiencies in your infrastructure, and recommend solutions to streamline processes, which, of course, improve productivity.
The top three reasons businesses are looking for more efficient telecom and IT solutions are to save money, improve productivity, and improve security. According to a survey conducted by Tech Pro Research, 64% of respondents said that they were either planning to invest in, or already had invested in, modernizing their telecom and IT infrastructure to improve efficiency.
