Hi all,

Just a little tidbit you may want to consider.

If you already use a telecom consultant to support your RFP process for
telecom and data services, then you can ignore this email.

If you don't use a consultant, I'd suggest you consider using one.  They
can save you thousands in eliminating services you don't need, and also in
getting the best pricing possible.  Having someone on your side that has
worked in the industry can be a huge benefit, something I've seen in
working with CCSU.

I'm not talking erate consulting, which can be a different specialty.  I
found I could manage that one pretty well for less complicated districts.
But this is for the telecom/data RFP process itself.

Here's who we use, and we've had excellent experiences.  Maybe others use
other providers?
