The SOCKIT2ME WEEKLY NEWSLETTER 11-12-2010 Edition….enjoy!

This newsletter is intended to share some information and to generate some thoughts and maybe a laugh or a smile. I hope you enjoy. I cover some very top line telecommunications industry information but more fun and more valuable might be the other things noted. If you find no fun or no value, just let me know and I will happily remove your name from the list. No harm, no foul!

I would love to help your organization REDUCE EXPENSES in tele- and data- communications at no risk! Please reach out to me when you can. Information on how to contact me is below.

• Go to a poetry recital and ask why the poems don’t rhyme.

• Send e-mail to the rest of the company to tell them what you’re doing at every moment of the day. For example: “If anyone needs me, I’ll be in the bathroom.”

ABOUT ME

I am a consultant in the area of telecommunications. All I do is focus on cost reduction in the area of data- and tele- communications. Armed with a set of proprietary tools that are unavailable elsewhere, as well as deep market knowledge, I offer organizations a free audit of all their communications usage via invoices and records. At Schooley Mitchell, we do a deep dive analysis of how an organization really uses their services: line by line, phone by phone, feature by feature, user by user to come up with sound recommendations. My compensation comes only from a share in the savings generated. We review it all, internet access, wireless/smart phones, local service, long distance, conferencing, toll free numbers, pc cards, etc. On average I am able to find savings of 25% and often with no change in carriers.

Why would I be invited in, to review complicated expenses?
• Because my services are confidential.
• Because my customized recommendations bring noticeable savings.
• Because only the customer decides which recommendations I will implement.
• Because I am 100% objective and independent. I do not sell or accept commissions from any carrier’s services.
• Because I do not bill for my services until the customer sees savings. There is no cost up front and all compensation is funded from savings.
• Because I continue to monitor monthly usage and invoices – always optimizing savings

If you know any organization other than yours that would like to reduce their communications expenses; I would be pleased to help them as well. I always welcome the chance to do what I do best.

Please feel free anytime reach out to me at 973-295-6319 or at ken.toumey@schooleymitchell.com
