Schools often tell us that they need help when purchasing a new telephone system as they do not have the knowledge or understanding of the technology that is required to meet their needs. The other issue that faces Schools is that their typical route to market is to use their existing supplier or find a local telecoms company on the internet. Problems often arise when telephone systems solutions are recommended that don’t necessarily meet the needs of the School. Instead the salesperson might have a limited range of products to sell and are likely to earn commission from a sale within their portfolio of products.
Do you know what you should pay for a telephone system and what is a fair price? Telephone systems can be complex, consisting of various hardware and software components and each one has a bespoke configuration to meet the individual customer’s needs.
This minefield of technical information is difficult to understand and even more difficult to compare on a like for like basis. The telephone system and ongoing support of it is crucial, and so it is key that the right product is selected from the right provider.
We help Schools take a different approach when sourcing a new telephone system, we do not sell / supply or install any telecoms products. Instead we work with Schools in an advisory capacity to understand their requirements so that we can design a system specification that fits their needs. We can then recommend which manufacturer’s products are best suited to the School and which suppliers to obtain pricing from. We vet the proposals to make sure that they are considered on a like for like basis ensuring that the best product from the best provider is selected and we help negotiate a fair price for the solution.
Ultimately our approach ensures that our Schools customers find the telephone system that suits their requirements best, from the best suppliers at the best prices.
