A Managed Service Provider (MSP) like s2s Communications is a trusted partner that businesses rely on to delegate specific processes or functions. This delegation not only enhances operational efficiency but can also result in significant cost savings. Among the many tasks that multi-location businesses often outsource, ISP management stands out due to its time-consuming nature and minimal contribution to business growth. This article delves into the challenges associated with ISP management and why businesses are increasingly turning to MSPs, particularly s2s Communications, to handle this task.
Understanding Your Billing
Many businesses find ISP bills complex and hard to understand, especially when it comes to identifying the services being billed and their respective locations. Reviewing lengthy bills can be a tedious task, and often, errors such as late fees or incorrect charges go unnoticed. This is where an MSP like s2s Communications steps in. We manage your ISP billing, ensuring that all your bills are received, reviewed, paid, and consolidated. We provide you with a single, monthly invoice itemized by location and clearly identifying the services. Moreover, we dispute any erroneous charges on your behalf and ensure that the credits are passed on to you.
Ensuring uptime is crucial, and inevitably, there will be times when the internet service is interrupted or underperforms. In such situations, someone needs to contact the ISP, a task that is often met with reluctance due to long hold times and frustrating prompts. As your MSP, s2s Communications monitors your connections around the clock, automatically generates a ticket when a connection goes down, and liaises with the ISP to restore the service promptly. Our ticketing portal provides your team with all the necessary information about the ticket status, eliminating the hassle of dealing with it directly.
Securing New Services
Businesses need to trust their internet service and feel confident that their locations are equipped with the best service available. As an ISP-agnostic MSP, s2s Communications provides this assurance. We don't have any affiliations with ISPs or receive commissions on circuits ordered. Instead, we objectively assess the options and present those that best meet your needs. We also manage your internet service orders closely to ensure timely and successful installations. All you need to do is provide the service address and our team handles the rest.
Keeping an accurate and up-to-date inventory of connectivity can be a challenge for multi-location businesses, particularly those that have expanded through acquisitions. Although it may seem like a mundane task, maintaining a current inventory is crucial for making necessary changes or providing support. As your MSP, s2s Communications takes care of this for you, updating the inventory in real-time for all MACD activities.
