A growing business also has growing telecommunication needs, which means you need to know exactly when to have a talk with your telecom provider about ramping up your services. As part of this process, you should be prepared to ask certain questions that will help you get the telecom installation in MT that’s best suited for your needs.
Here’s a guide that can help you understand which questions you should ask in this scenario.
Asking the proper questions
The most common questions people tend to ask also tend to be questions that aren’t going to get them the answers they really need. For example, a lot of people will ask whether they can use their existing hardware and software systems as part of their telecom solutions, or what speed they need their network to provide, or whether they should rely on digital or hosted communications.
These are all well-meaning questions, but the first questions you ask shouldn’t be quite this specific. You need to have a broader discussion about your telecommunications goals and processes before you start focusing on the specifics. This will make sure you’re approaching the issue from the correct angle.
So, for example, at the outset of your conversation with a telecom provider, you might ask questions such as:
- What goals do we have for our communication systems? What do we really wish they would be able to do for us?
- What needs do we have for our communications systems, and how do our needs and wants differ in this regard?
- What specific pain points exist with the current methods we’re using for our internal communications?
- What specific pain points exist for our clients or customers who attempt to reach out and communicate with us under our current arrangement?
- What sort of experience or general impression do we hope to give our customers and clients when using our communications systems?
These broader-scale questions are designed to help you establish he goals of your new system so you can determine the most important factors you wish to include in that system. By focusing on these broader issues first, you can whittle your way down to some of the more particular details, such as whether you will go with hosted or digital, the kinds of system requirements you have for your telecom solutions and the software options you have to choose from.
Ultimately, the single most important question you can constantly ask yourself throughout the process is whether the solution you are investigating will truly help you meet the goals you established in the above questions and solve the problems you’ve identified in your communications, both for your internal team members and for external clients and customers. That question should guide you throughout the entire process of upgrading your telecom infrastructure.
