Forget Me Not saves £30,000 on phone installationsSource: Huddersfield Daily Examiner
"A CHARITY has saved tens of thousands of pounds on the installation of its phone lines.
West Yorkshire Forget Me Not Children's Hospice recruited Golcar-based ME Consultancy Ltd to help cut telecom costs at its new hospice building in Brackenhall.
Charity chief executive Peter Branson awarded ME Consultancy the contract to supply broadband to outlets owned by the charity as well as providing the telecoms requirements for the new hospice building.
Because the hospice was being built in an area with no current telephone provision, the original installation costs were going to be very high – exceeding £30,000 – to cover the cost of digging up the roads and laying new cables.
ME Consultancy sales development manager Paul Robertshaw said: "The hospice provides vital support to children with a life limiting or life threatening condition and to their families across Kirklees, Calderdale and Wakefield.
"Knowing that £30,000 could keep a child and their family looked after full time for over a year in the new hospice, we were determined to save them as much of that money as possible.
ME Consultancy worked closely with BT Openreach to ensure that the hospice had all the services needed from the moment the building was completed – with the final installation cost below £1,500.
ME Consultancy Ltd provides customers with advice on their telecoms expenditure and ways to receive the best value for money from the services required.
The firm can provide a full review of voice and data spend and provide access to a wide range of products from its wholesale portfolio.
It also manages a multi level billing platform covering fixed line, wholesale, data and mobile."
