CIMCO Site Audits Helps Organizations Cut Telecom Waste

Oakbrook Terrace, IL, October 25, 2004 - In an effort to help organizations reduce waste in their communications infrastructures, CIMCO Communications, Inc., announced today that its Professional Services Group has begun to offer CIMCO Site Audits.

The new offering examines an organization's inbound and outbound local and long distance voice services, data and Internet access systems, and makes strategic recommendations for improvement.

With CIMCO Site Audits, companies can increase profits and reduce waste by identifying inefficiencies, can focus on their core businesses without having to worry about their infrastructures, and can reduce long-term staff investment with CIMCO's project-based work.

"While organizations want to stay current with the latest technologies to improve their businesses, they can't lose sight of the potential for waste," said Bill Capraro, President and CEO of CIMCO Communications. "And with employee turnover and changing business needs, organizations need a real-time picture of where their telecom assets are deployed. CIMCO Site Audits gauges the effectiveness of existing telecom services and recommends solutions for savings, improvements and optimization."

The Professional Services Group gathers data and takes inventory of existing services, matches the physical inventory to billing statements, and performs high-leve traffic analyses. The results are detailed and comprehensive evaluations of existing phone lines, circuit configurations and associated services to identify potential opportunities for savings and efficiency.

In an early trial of the service, CIMCO discovered that a Chicago-area health system was paying for phone lines that were actually serving other businesses and that many lines within its dispersed facilities were not being used at all. As a result of the elimination of the errant and unused lines, the health system estimates a monthly savings of $20,000 to $25,000.

CIMCO has deep telecom experience coupled with technical prowess to provide a one-stop source that combines a strategic assessment of needs and usage with extraordinary ongoing support
