New York - Nov 12, 2003-Communication Research Consultants, Inc. (CRC) the leading provider of Telecom cost optimization services recently announced completion of an in-depth Telecom billing analysis for Globecomm Systems, Inc. (GSI) of Hauppauge, New York which has now resulted in an annual expense reduction of well over $68,000 plus the recovery of more than $75,000 in refunds.
"Based on our 14 years of helping organizations like Globecomm better manage this Top 3 expense, we've come to know that without proper support and consultation, many American companies will continue to spend 20%-40% more than is necessary for their overall telecom services," says PJ Cammarata, Executive Vice President of Communication Research Consultants, Inc. "Globecomm is one of those companies that clearly understands the importance of reducing recurring annual expenses whenever and wherever possible. They realized from the start, that outsourcing this type of work to the experts at CRC was in their best interest and would result in greater savings as well as a shorter time frame to complete the project than if it had been done internally, said Cammarata."

"It has been a real pleasure working with CRC to drastically reduce our overhead in telecom expenses," said Scott Herschander, Senior Director of IT at Globecomm Systems. "CRC has been able to identify tremendous savings that had previously gone unnoticed." Herschander went on to say that, "At Globecomm, we're always looking for new ways to increase profits and reduce operating expenses and CRC is helping us reach those goals."
"Many organizations have gone through the typical bill audit process, which only addresses a small portion of what is available in cost cutting opportunities," said CRC President & founder, Robert Weinger. "These efforts often fall short simply because the typical bill audit will generally focus on refunds & credits, never touching upon the cost effective operation of each and every circuit within the network. In short, bill audits are just not focused on overall network cost optimization. CRC looks forward to working with Globecomm in the future to continue the process of assuring that they are paying the right amount for the telecom services they are using," said Weinger.
