A client in the Financial Industry requested a Scope of Work to prepare and submit the Federal Excise Tax Refund for 2006 in January 2007. To accomplish this task all invoices were reviewed for taxes. This client had four different wireless carriers with multiple accounts for each. The annual spend for wireless in 2006 was $627,000 for 295 devices. An evaluation was conducted to determine the areas that would require immediate attention to reduce the wireless expense. A mobile phone policy was created, consolidated multiple accounts with the same carrier, rate plans were changed, SMS capability was restricted, and created an internal online ordering process managed by one Administrator for all locations.
