THUS pricing will help SMEs survive the recession

With today’s USwitch Small Business Opinion Panel survey demonstrating that the survival strategy for SMEs hinges primarily on the need to find cheaper suppliers, the chance to reduce telecoms spend is a god send to small businesses.

As with energy supplies many businesses pay more than they need to for voice services, perhaps unaware of the savings to be made or the ease of switching supplier.

To support SMEs during this time, THUS, a Cable&Wireless business, is offering companies the chance to save a guaranteed 25% on both calls and line when compared to BT, saving the average SME business around £3,500 a year. Not only can these valuable savings be banked but the whole process from finding out how just how much you can save through to switching takes as little as 2 days and involves no disruption to service or any changes.

The move comes as THUS focuses its range of telecoms services to more closely meet the needs of the SME sector and offer them the best range of products and highest standards of service available to UK businesses.

Another way businesses can save valuable cash is to get more of their services from one supplier and demand a discount, after all it becomes more efficient for a service provider so shouldn’t some of that be reflected in the price you pay?

Part of THUS’s new customer centric approach is a range of service ‘pledges’ which define what customers can expect from THUS, including one outlining their commitment to delivering the best value telecoms services.

Phil Smith, THUS Head of Pricing said, “It is not about price, it is about value. We will constantly strive to offer ‘best value’ solutions that provide a total cost to you that helps your business and hence a price where our customers will see a return on their investment. And we will reward the loyalty of existing customers rather than offering the best deals only to new customers. That only seems fair to us.”
