Wherever your company is based, telecom carrier deals usually require rates for international services. Many contracts include a preponderance of requirements for European, Asian and/or Latin American markets, in addition to North America. Many users wonder whether the ideal outcome is one global supplier, one or two key suppliers in different parts of the world, or a variety of specialized suppliers in individual countries. Designing a global RFP is one of the toughest challenges in telecommunications management, and obtaining market rates is often a matter of great uncertainty, even among highly experienced multinational corporations.
TC2 has worldwide expertise to help you navigate the global telecommunications landscape. It starts with our European and Asian based consultants, who not only have expertise in their home markets of the U.K. and Singapore, but also deep expertise in pan-European and pan-Asian deals for wireline and wireless services. They know when contracts can be designed and negotiated on a regional or country-by-country basis. And, on a market-by-market and service-by-service basis, they know the carriers that go beyond marketing claims to provide robust voice and data services in the most critical locations in your global network.
Our expertise continues with our deep record of benchmarking services around the world. Rate structures, pricing plans, competitive forces, the relative rates of change in pricing, and the analysis necessary to perform an apples-to-apples comparison of competitive bidders varies tremendously among global markets. Our record of benchmarking services for domestic and international usage and circuits – within and among countries – is unparalleled in the industry. And given the expense of international telecommunications capacity, “knowing the market” often holds even greater stakes around the world than for domestic U.S. traffic.
Regardless of your geographic requirements, call on TC2 to see how we can help you. Our presence will give you the best chance for an optimum procurement outcome around the world.
