ENABLING clients to save money on telephone and Internet services is a passion of Raj Deokar of Pink Connect (Northampton) Ltd.
The telecom specialists can offer an extensive service to businesses including the supply of landlines, VoIP solutions, telephone systems, broadband and mobiles.
Raj Deokar, a former BT telecom professional, said: "When I come across a client spending £18 per month per telephone line with a major supplier, I just can't help feeling sympathetic. "£18 per month line rental is more than 30 per cent more expensive than what other suppliers like Pink Connect will charge. So for a single line a business would be spending £68 extra per annum or £680 extra per annum for one of their lines."
The leading suppliers often run contracts for five years. Raj said: "So a small business with five lines signing a five year contract would be spending extra £1700. This money would be saved if they shift to companies like Pink Connect."
Raj is aware that many business people believe that dealing with leading suppliers means they can expect additional service.
He said: "It is a myth. When other telecom suppliers, like Pink Connect, rent a business line, it also leases from BT's Openreach. Changing supplier for analogue lines is like changing electricity supplier."
Pink Connect can also help businesses in other ways to improve efficiency and save money.
Improved broadband connections save valuable staff time while a review of call packages can also prove beneficial.
Raj said: "Pink Connect has routinely saved over 50 per cent on calls when compared to leading suppliers."
"Technological advances such as VoIP lines not only give advantage for handling calls efficiently but also they save your telephone costs and cut the need to rent ISDN lines.
"Eliminating unwanted lines or telecom infrastructure can save a fortune. Performing a site and bill analysis for example recently saved over £200 per annum for a client by identifying a telephone line that was connected to a dead alarm system."
