5 reasons to get your business tech from one provider

Have you every calculated how much time, energy and money you put into the tech that makes your business tick?

Having different providers for your office phones, mobiles, broadband and IT might seem appealing, but managing several at once can be a real headache.

So, before that headache turns into a migraine, let’s look at the challenges of dealing with several providers, and the benefits of rolling them into one.

The issues with having multiple service providers.

We’ve highlighted five biggies…

Complicated billing
Using different IT and telecoms companies for different services becomes more time-consuming, complicated and confusing than doing an extra, extra hard Sudoku.

Higher costs
You might get good deals on individual services, but you usually get better ones by bundling them with one provider.

Everyone’s blameless
Working with multiple providers can turn into blame game bingo, each one accusing the other when things go wrong, like your broadband provider blaming your landline provider when there are connection issues.

Making simple tasks more complicated
Trying to complete a simple task, like setting up a new member of staff, can become trickier than untangling cables in a server room. You have to speak to IT to create a new user, your mobile provider for a new mobile, the telephone people for a desk phone, your internet provider to make sure you have enough bandwidth… and before you know it, you’ve lost a day to admin faff.

Integration and communication issues
Some providers might not integrate or communicate well with others. This can cause major problems when data needs to be shared between different services.

Why having one provider for everything makes much more sense.

Rolling multiple service providers into one causes fewer headaches, and frees you up to focus on more important things.

One point of contact
When things go wrong, you don’t have to ring several companies (which, as we’ve seen, can lead to blame game bingo). Having one point of contact is a time-saving game-changer.

Better pricing
Getting your services as a package usually means you can get everything much cheaper. You’re giving one company a lot of business, so they’re more likely to lower prices across the board.

Easier to scale
As your business grows, it’s easier for your package to grow with you. There’s no running around trying to get multiple companies to tweak their services as you grow your business.

Better customer service
When everything’s under one roof, it’s in your provider’s best interest to keep you happy. Because if you decide to jump ship, they’ll lose the whole package you have with them. That’s a lot of business.

One simple monthly bill
Say goodbye to receiving a deluge of invoices every month. By consolidating your services, you get everything in one bill, making it easier to keep track of what you’re paying.
