Streamlining & Cutting
through the Technology Clutter
TECHNOLOGY EXPENSE MANAGEMENT

PART OF YOUR TEAM
Consider us an extension of your team as we audit the billing/vendors while holding them accountable to deliverables. And, we can ensure you receive market-leading pricing.
LIFE CYCLE PERFORMANCE
That means we’ll take your requirements, coordinate with vendors by negotiating terms, then validate billing accuracy once implemented – saving you time and money.
CCS, Inc. has been a premier management consulting firm specializing in communication invoice/vendor auditing since 2001. Since our launch, the word “Cost” was specific to the monetary savings we provided our clients, and over the years, has evolved as the time savings we provide has been equally important. Managing the process of sourcing, analyzing and implementing data & voice solutions can be tedious and time consuming. And, as companies extend market reach, multiply and evolve their processes, change systems and technologies, ask their people to do more with less, the inevitable happens. Errors. Overpayments.
The good news is there is a no-risk way to tap a deeply experienced third party resource to identify, manage and recover any overpayments if warranted while gaining valuable insight regarding best practices. Vendors do not audit themselves in hopes of issuing credits or billing errors back on their customers behalf. These errors are mostly embedded within the billing, often in the form of incorrect billed charges vs. contract terms, inconsistent and miscellaneous surcharges & fees, taxes, etc. Our projects can result in ongoing cost reduction and the potential recovery of historical refunds which can be reallocated within your budget for future technology needs.
If you are new to independent communication auditing and the potential value we can provide, please review our service offerings to learn more about the main benefits.

Audits are sometimes met with resistance. They require the use of scarce resources and they harbor the potential to make a department “look bad” for overspending. Actually, we understand that communication billing can be confusing by design and that managers are not failing if they can’t wring the excess of erroneous costs from the system. We alleviate this overwhelming task of reviewing invoices so your team can focus on their strengths. We’ll approach our task as a team, operating in concert while delivering both expertise and cost/time savings. From additional bandwidth and alternative carrier redundancy to any other strategic need, we can perform the due diligence and vet options on your behalf.
