OUR PHILOSOPHY

The Nielsen IT Consulting Mission

We believe that every great organization has a great communication system.

However, most organizations today still use telephony systems and call centre technologies from the 1990s — and stay-at-home restrictions are disrupting these systems.

What's more, the speed of globalization and technological innovation in the 21st century requires our organizations to work very differently — with shorter decision cycles, more employee engagement, and stronger collaboration than had previously been required to compete.

Since 1999, our mission has been to help Canadian organizations transition from 1990s way of communicating into the 21st Century. We accomplish this transformation by providing expert guidance, proven processes, and vendor-agnostic technology recommendations.

Our Core Beliefs

1

We believe every silo'd organization should replace their 1990s phone system with modern day Unified Communication tools to become the 'boundary-less' organization of the 21st Century.

2

We believe call centres should have the technology, processes and people required to respond to their clients needs through the channels clients choose.

3

We believe the monopolistic carriers make their telephony and mobility services and billing systems purposely complex — and confusing — to maximize their profits at your organization's expense. This must end.

4

We believe most (if not all) organizations are substantially overpaying for telephony and mobility services by as much as 15 to 64%. Problem is they don't know this because carrier billing systems don't make it easy to identify this overspend.

5

We believe in providing advice and recommendations on technology that are vendor-agnostic because every organization is unique.

UNIFY YOUR COMMUNICATIONS

Bring Nielsen On As An Advisor To Guide You Through Your Phone System Replacement Project

Are You Replacing Your Organization's Phone System & Don't Know Where to Start?

Whether your phone system is nearing end-of-life...

Or whether it just needs to be replaced to meet the demands of working from anywhere with any device due to mandated lockdowns...

Replacing your organization's phone system is a time-consuming endeavor and costly investment decision IF the wrong system is chosen and improperly deployed.

Whatever your reasons are, clients usually bring us on to help, guide, and advise them through this major purchasing decision from beginning to end.

If you bring us on, we often start by determining the needs of your users and outlining a Strategic Plan. Once we've identified and documented these needs and formulated your Plan, we create a thorough Request for Proposal designed to solicit a variety of solutions from our vast vendor network.

Once we've received all of these proposals, we help you select the best suited telephony solution among them by analyzing and scoring each offering with our time-tested matrix and framework.

Once we've come to a collective purchasing decision, clients often engage us to guide their organization and the phone system vendor in a roll-out of this new system: doing our best to ensure that your new phone system is properly deployed, on-time and within budget.

Furthermore, once your new phone system is deployed, the challenge then becomes getting your end-users to adopt these new tools and new ways of working. We can assist with this, too.

If you are in the process of replacing a phone system, defining your organization's needs, or comparing vendor solutions, book an Advisory Call with us:

“We recently engaged Nielsen to help us select a new phone system, and I am very glad we did. From discovery interviews with our staff through creation of the RFP, to advising us on the pros and cons of the various offerings, Nielsen’s involvement allowed us to make a timely, informed decision. If you need a new phone system and don’t know where to start, do yourself a favour and call Nielsen.”

TRANSFORM YOUR CALL CENTRE

Bring Nielsen On As An Advisor To Help You Transform Your Call Centre

Need to Improve Your Call Centre But Don't Know Where to Start?

The contact centre is THE most complex and sophisticated component of any telephone system.

For some, less mature or considered developing centres to transform could mean the introduction of better management and reporting for voice calls and possibly e-mail. Many of these centres have less formal operational practices and tools in place and are struggling to scale their operations.

These groups need help in understanding the benefits of introducing routine tracking and reporting. They also need help in the interpretation of these reports, due to the nature of staff’s management background. For these centres most of their staff come from different backgrounds not related to call centres.

Bring us on to educate and provide best practice procedures that will provide the confidence and tools for better management and reporting.

For those agencies with a more mature environment, organizations want to add more value and functionality to the centre that is focused on increased sales, better customer experience that includes more choices for client interactions. These mature centres want to provide more options for communication channels, voice, chat, e-mail, self-serve and more. Centres want to offer call-back options at times that offers additional convenience.

Numerous technology choices exist for all types of customer service centres, help desks, and busy switchboards.

When we work with clients it is important to understand not only what technology is being deployed or what applications needs to be acquired, but also, what gaps might exist for staffing as it pertains to training and/or organizational structure. Another critical element is understanding current workflow activities that are triggered by a customer interactions.

We take an holistic approach when working with contact centres. And it is important to establish at what level of operation your centre is working towards.

Our experts will guide your team to make the right choice for your organization.

“It was great working with Emily and her team to redesign the IVR for our organization. Their work was excellent and they truly felt like partners not only delivering what we asked for, but also lending their tremendous knowledge to give us tips for other improvements.”

TAKE BACK CONTROL OF YOUR TELECOM NETWORK

Deploy Our In-House Software-as-a-Solution & Telecom Management Experts To Manage Your Out-of-Control Telecom Network

Are You Frustrated And Fed Up At The Chaos Created By Your Telecom & Mobility Carriers Who Purposely Make Billing More Complex?

99% of organizations today are consumed by increasingly complex telecom networks: a growing out-of-control mess of services, devices and hardware.

Making matters worse, telecom carriers do not provide the proper tools and processes to adequately manage these assets — leaving organizations like yours to manage this complex (and costly) chaos with manual, repetitive tasks and time-consuming approaches like Excel spreadsheets, carrier portals and piles of paper bills.

Outgunned, overwhelmed and unable to make sense of the clutter, typical telecom networks grow with increasing complexity, cost and demand more and more time to manage.

Let Us Unlock The Power of Billing Automation & Reporting

Bring us on to retool your telecom and mobility management with our proprietary Enterprise Technology Administration System (ETAS) — a tech-toolbox that analyzes, manages and reports on all of these assets, their usage, and costs.

We can eliminate these manual and repetitive tasks and bring control and clarity to your network by connecting our software to your carriers — so you can make more time for what matters most.
Let us capture and demystify the total cost of owning all your communication assets with our SaaS — so you can keep on top of and effectively manage these operating costs, month after month, with ease.

What's more:

When you bring us on, you will get insider access to Nielsen's monthly telecom management team who oversees the on-going operation, cost-optimization & financial performance of your telecom network to maximize its ROI.

Interested in learning how we can take back control of your telecom and mobility network?

CUT YOUR TELECOM COSTS

Bring Nielsen On To Generate Significant, Monthly Recurring Cost-Savings to Offset Your Organization's Operating Expenses

FACT: Your Organization Is Overspending On Telecom & Mobility By 15 to 64%

If operating costs are a concern right now, consider this cost-cutting approach used by our clients:

It’s a way of exposing and developing a potentially significant cost-savings opportunity inside of your telecom operating costs.

And depending on how much your organization is currently spending, you can save $3,000 to $42,000 a month without impacting your operations in any way, whatsoever.

How can this be?

Well, as you may be aware, most telecom, mobility and internet providers are substantially overcharging you for these services—and by as much as 64%!

And without a highly-specialized expert, such as a telecom manager, to carefully review these costs on monthly basis, these significantly overpriced services are approved by and paid by your organization.

Simply by looking over your services and contracts my firm can uncover numerous cost-savings opportunities which, based on our experience, can reduce these costs by 15% to 64% in as little as 60 days.

Of course, our specific cost-saving recommendations would be pre-approved by you and selected on their basis of suitability to your current and future communication needs.

And of the savings we implement, you’ll retain 100% of the cost-savings, indefinitely.

That’s a lot of money.

You see, our firm has engineered a number of cost-savings opportunities exactly like this for the aforementioned municipalities, government services and private businesses.

They produced between $18,000 and $500,000 in savings a year.

Again, depending on how much you’re currently spending and your contract terms, we might only produce a few thousand dollars in monthly savings. But then again, if these expenses are out-of-control, we could do much, much better.

If you want to take advantage of this opportunity or simply learn more, contact us as soon as possible using 1 of the 3 options below:
PS: Canadian broadband fees are, on average, 27 per cent higher than the U.S., and 64 per cent higher than the G-7 average. Average Canadian wireless fees are 57 per cent higher than the U.S., and 157 per cent higher than the G-7 average.” (Source: The Toronto Star)

“Based on the needs of the City, Nielsen designed our next phone system and created the RFQ for this system while performing a cost-savings analysis. The design and RFQ saved much time when I was comparing phone system solutions from the various vendors. Once a vendor has been selected I will use the savings report from the analysis to show City council how I can help fund my phone system replacement project.”
