Inventory and Audit
Corporate executives and finance departments rely on their accounts payable department to pay their bills and enlist the telecom department (if they have one) to review invoices, inventory, and charges. Companies are always searching for more efficient ways to validate inventory and associated expenditures, and most companies don’t have the tools or resources to correctly reconcile these each month. The first step in controlling costs is to understand what you currently have and whether it is being billed appropriately. This starts with gaining complete visibility into your technology environment with an inventory and audit of these services.
Through decades of experience, the professionals at LinkSource have developed an in-depth understanding of technology and associated billing practices. This enables us to provide a unique auditing methodology that optimizes savings and drives efficiencies in your technology stack.

Carrier Services Inventory
IT and telecom inventory can seem chaotic. Companies commonly have information scattered across a multitude of teams, emails, spreadsheets, and other media. Often, they must rely on several untrustworthy sources of data to piece together information about their network inventory. Our platform provides visibility to all your network inventory in one centralized location, making it easier to know what you are using, where you’re using it, and how much you are spending on it.
With years of industry experience, we know what to look for in our clients’ contracts and how different suppliers negotiate. We’ll work with you to understand your priorities (e.g., growth, downsizing, flexibility) and then draft contract language and terms that suppliers are likely to accept, minimizing the back and forth in these negotiations. This can save time and money while fostering a positive relationship with your suppliers.
Our management platform provides access to all of your contracts in one place, creating a centralized repository for documentation of vendor account reports, network diagrams, and master service agreements. Contracts are linked to corresponding IT assets and renewal timeframes, making this the go-to place for all information on your IT assets.
Audit and Dispute
Our team will review all your invoices to ensure current pricing is competitive and identify items such as services that are not being utilized, disconnected services that are still billing, hidden fees, and rates that don’t match your contract. If our team sees anything that needs to be researched or disputed, you can count on us to work with the supplier to resolve the issues on your behalf.
Our professional team will help ensure you’re utilizing the right technology and keeping your network optimized. We’ll review your environment for potential areas of improvement related to savings, processes, technologies, and more.
