Why do you need an audit?

Many of today’s companies fail to realize the importance of auditing utility and telecom budgets and
the accompanying monthly charges. Too often spending in this category is not verified due to an assumption of accuracy and cost efficiency. We often hear “as long as it looks right, we pay them.” The utility company’s position is that it is your responsibility to verify your bills. By assuming your bills are correct or there is nothing you can do leaves your company vulnerable to errors and overcharges. An audit may be the best thing you can do now, with the potential of refunds and savings going straight to your bottom line.
