What Have we
Done?
  • Working with London Centre of Excellence

11
London Centre of Excellence
  • 2006 Bob Fletcher of LCE (OGC) conducted a
    pilot to identify the success of independent
    Telephony Audits within the Public Sector
  • Report Delivering Savings Through Telephony
    Audits
  • Azzurri Involvement
  • Co-operation with London Centre of Excellence
  • Two London Boroughs
  • Hammersmith Fulham
  • Barking Dagenham

12
London Centre of Excellence
  • Findings showed
  • Significant savings can be achieved averaging
    around 20
  • Highly recommended London Boroughs give
    consideration to using a specialist audit company
    to carry out a telephony audit
  • LCE recommends London Boroughs consider using
    Personal Call Management for Mobiles

13
London Centre of Excellence

London Centre of Excellence
Lessons Learnt
  • Audit company cannot work in isolation
  • Action will be required to realise savings
    identified
  • Electronic billing simplifies the process
  • May be reluctance in telecoms departments to
    acknowledge that savings are possible
  • Resources to implement plan can come from the
    audit company

17
London Centre of Excellence
Scale of Opportunity
  • Savings on telephony costs can be achieved
  • Average 20 savings claimed by audit companies is
    not unreasonable, on some occasions savings will
    be higher
  • Telecoms spend across London Boroughs was 48m in
    2004/5
  • Assuming telephony expenditure is per borough
    1m, total annual savings could be around 6.6m
    across the 33 boroughs
  • Azzurris broad range of telecoms services can
    deliver real savings and technology improvements
