Why settle for
half a product?

Talk to us

Old-school telcos like to sell network technology without real customer service to go with it.

We’re calling it out: that’s half a product.

With Macquarie Telecom, you’ll get exceptional technology with the world’s best customer service that’s right here in Australia.

Some things don’t work by halves.

Would you board a plane that was missing a wing? Or grab half an umbrella and step out into the rain? So think about this: why would you choose a telco service provider that only provides half a product?

If you've answered yes to any of these, you’re paying for half a product.
All technology, no service.

Half-product telcos end up costing your business.

Let's take a look at how.

Help comes from scripts instead of trained experts.

Downtime increases because complex problems can’t be solved quickly (or incorrect solutions are offered).

Onboarding mobiles, rolling out SD-WAN sites, or migrating a mobile fleet needs a project manager to be on-time and low-disruption.

Low-touch onboarding and migrations, with a call centre help number instead of a local project manager.

Impact on your business:

Long call waits for simple questions.

Delays inhibit productivity, because urgent problems can’t be fixed on the spot.

Call centre support is based off-shore to cut the carrier’s costs.

Offshore call centres often operate with limited training, and sometimes substitute a can-do attitude for genuine knowledge.

Nobody’s empowered to make a decision.

Script-based customer service often means friendly people with no authority to make a decision or resolve a problem.

Inflexible contract terms that serve your telco, not you.

Old-school telco contracts leave no room for your business to change, grow, or even downsize.

Half-product service:

Nobody takes ownership of your call, so you bounce from one person to the next.

Call centre people don’t have access to engineers.

Lost productivity for individuals and administrators in your business, delays in trying to get help.

Long delays waiting for complex technical problems to be solved. (While call centre staff send trouble tickets to distant engineers and often wait days or weeks for an update.)

What something does is half the product.

The service that goes with it is the other half.

BaptistCare knew they deserved both.
