The recent price hikes by Eircom at a time when businesses need to keep costs down in order to maintain competitiveness internationally and pay the monthly bills is just another illustration of the incumbent’s lack of appreciation of the enormous loyalty SME customers have shown them with over seven out of ten SME using Eircom as their supplier in the past.
But in the new arena of business survival, it is interesting to note that business are starting to review their costs with 26% of business claiming to have changed their telecommunication supplier in the past 12 months in a recent InterTrade Ireland survey.
Interestingly, organisations in the south are more likely to have switched operators 30% vs. 16% in the north which shows that businesses are starting to tap into the alternative telecoms providers. Of course, when it come to Blueface we not only offer considerable cost saving but we also believe that SME should have access to big business services at a small business price!
So if you’re reading this blog you’re probably one of the 30% who have made the switch already but if you have business friends and colleagues who need a helping hand, pass this on.
