Ayming helps Bédard Ressources obtain 28% additional telecom savings

"Ayming helped us understand where we had potential for optimizing our telecom tools while enjoying significant cost cutting benefits, and we are thrilled with the results"

The Challenge

Founded in 1996, Bédard Ressources is a placement agency specializing in the recruitment of personnel and human resources. Bédard Ressources has long worked in concert with employers and job seekers throughout the province of Quebec. In fact, they are one of the fastest growing recruiting firms in Canada. Known for their creative, innovative solutions and thoroughly professional, yet people-focused operations, Bédard Ressources has made it their mission to assist both employers and job seekers in meeting, to their mutual benefit. As recruiters actively seeking out and communicating with potential prospects on a daily basis, telecommunications play an important role in supplying them with the tools they require to achieve their goals. Upon meeting with Ayming, Bédard Ressources had undergone contract renegotiations with their mobile telecom service provider less than six months prior. However, upon review, Ayming was convinced that there were additional savings to be had.

Ayming's approach

Ayming audited Bédard Ressources’ telecom usage, including mobile plans for each user, and performed a thorough, holistic analysis of their company-wide patterns. Upon further optimizing plans, and performing additional negotiations with their provider based on proprietary benchmarks, Ayming was able to uncover significant supplementary savings for Bédard Ressources.

The Results

Working with Ayming to optimize their plans, further review their usage patterns, and negotiate rates on their behalf resulted in Bédard Ressources saving an additional 28% on their mobile costs. The additional savings were obtained without the firm having to change providers or extend their contracts.

What Bédard Ressources Has to Say

“Bédard Ressources is growing rapidly, and part of that growth involves investing in our infrastructure and tools,” states Stéphane Bédard, Bédard Ressources’ President. “However, we are also conscious of streamlining costs, and are always looking to redirect savings into the expansion of our firm. Ayming helped us understand where we had potential for optimizing our telecom tools while enjoying significant cost cutting benefits, and we are thrilled with the results. With minimal disruption to our current infrastructure, we were able to realize almost 30% additional savings. Ayming’s experts helped us cut costs in areas we didn’t know were possible. The results they achieved for us have led to Bédard Ressources initiating a second mandate with Ayming for our wireline.”
