Knowing what you have, where it is and how much it costs is the first step to making savings on the network. Only then can you implement savings knowing that you're not impacting users.
Often invoices are simply signed off if they look similar to the last one. This process can go on for years and this creates a key area for saving.
An audit can identify redundant services, provide a full list of inventory, ensure that all services are on the correct tariff and provide the foundation for other projects such as procurement or strategy.
WAN Benchmarking provides market rates for services, from simple analogue lines to international SD-WAN deployments. Knowing the market rates for services allows you to renegotiate with an incumbent supplier or create a business case etc.
