Review your tariffs - consider an indirect access service such as Primus or Swiftcall 4. Consolidate - consider using a single supplier 5. Simplify - you may be able to save money by switching to simpler equipment and services 6. Unplug phone chargers -ensure mobile phone chargers are switched off or unplugged when not in use. 7. Use free directory enquiry services - use free services such as 0800 100 100 or online alternatives such as BT’s (British Telecom). 8. Consider pre-owned equipment - some suppliers such as Nimans offer pre-owned equipment which is refurbished and has a 12 month warranty. 9. Share the costs - you can also realise savings by sharing the cost of services or systems with partners. 10. Consider Outsourcing - save money with greater economies of scale than you can achieve yourself.
