Telecom Bill Management: There are two primary options for telecom bill management:

The first option: The billing addresses are changed to directly come to ERC. Once the bills are received from the client, the data is entered into the ERC system, and they are audited. The bills with an AP file are returned to the client within 48 working hours to pay themselves, or through the optional ERC bill payment program.

The second option: After the client pays the bills, they are sent to ERC to audit.

Telecom Bill Auditing: ERC reviews the telecom accounts for errors, refunds, credits, and any future savings on the preceding 12 monthly bills and contracts. Our experienced auditors enter each account into our system to determine the billings are correct and ensure that the client has the best rates and services available.
