Remember that one voice telling you “always do your homework”? Fast forward to your work office and that same advice is more important than ever. Before entering into any kind of business agreement, take the time to compare prices, product quality and customer support before agreeing to any contract. It’s all about making the most educated decision for your company.
Everyone hated the aggressive traveling salesman who came to town and said whatever it took to make the sale, refusing to leave before the dotted line had been signed, then “bye, see ya” (or not). Some companies say whatever they need to in order to close a sale. Big promises….very little care or support…and probably mush more than you needed to spend.
Below are some tips to help you COST COMPARE when choosing an on-hold provider!
If you feel you are too busy to search on the internet or call around…make that time or have someone else do it for you. It could save you lots of time, money and effort in the long run. Look for a price range that fits the company’s budget. And beware, paying more money does not translate into a better product. Compare apples to apples; what are you actually getting for your money? Do you really need, or want, those extras? Are you actually going to use them?
