Tangoe Introduces Playbook to Fight Excessive Prices of POTS Enterprise Cellphone Traces

INDIANAPOLIS – (BUSINESS WIRE) – Tangoe announces its newest playbook to cover the skyrocketing costs of its Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS) business.

POTS businesses are traditional public switched telephone lines that have been the sole means of real-time, two-way voice communication for decades. While usage is declining, POTS lines can still make up a large portion of a company’s telecommunications spend – Tangoe reports an average of 30%. Factors such as industrial and corporate spending can affect the percentage.

The incumbent local switching companies (ILECs) that provide most of these services have raised the tariffs for these services to over $ 400 for a single line of business.

Tangoe is creating a series of webinars to help its customers minimize the cost impact of these legacy business services.

“Millions of companies continue to use POTS lines and those who do will continue to experience rising costs,” said Eric Witt, Tangoe VP of Advisory Services. “Tangoe has a proven strategy to control those telecommunications costs now and enable businesses to position themselves for the future. We can help eliminate the pain of POTS line pricing and keep your business running efficiently Keep going. ”

Advances in online communication technology and strategy, including instant messaging, mobile and IP-based voice services, have created many other options and offer telephone services at a lower cost than POTS. The changing culture of technology and its low cost usage have led companies to look for better options.

Tangoe offers experienced technology consultants who specialize in cost reduction and contract negotiation. The team of experts examines legacy services, recommends new, lower-cost alternatives, guides customers through competitive market prices and negotiates with carriers. In addition, Tangoe provides data and insights to build a long-term telecommunications strategy and avoid the rising costs of POTS lines.

“Strategically, it’s about ROI and controlling your usage,” continues Witt. “We see companies spending money on services they don’t want, need, or sometimes even know. Tangoe knows exactly how to identify what is needed, minimize that burden, and then use the money for other, more important things.”
