By Carolyn J Dawson, TMCnet Contributor

Cablevision Systems (News - Alert) Corporation, a leading telecommunications, media and entertainment provider, has recently announced the launch of a new online resource, the Optimum (News - Alert) Business Savings Calculator. The Optimum Business Savings Calculator showcases how small businesses how to save on phone and Internet services with Optimum Business.

 A recent nationwide Forrester (News - Alert) study on phone and Internet spending showed that small businesses end up paying on an average more than twice the typical Optimum Business customer. Meanwhile, Optimum Business has launched a major television advertising campaign across the Tri-State Area in order to help small business owners to showcase their savings with Optimum Business.

In a release, the Vice President of Marketing for Commercial Services, Cablevision Systems, Stephanie Anderson, said that, “In the past year alone, small businesses in the tri-state area have saved more than $100 million by switching to Optimum Business for voice and Internet. By offering an easy way to calculate savings with Optimum Business, we allow small businesses to see the actual impact on their bottom line and make an informed decision to join the growing number of businesses that rely on us to deliver premium services and value every day. The story of each customer is unique and yet two key points are echoed again and again: savings and predictable pricing. When added to our reliable service, it’s a winning combination.”

Optimum Business solutions have already helped more than 100,000 small businesses throughout The Tri-State Area and the new advertising campaign will feature some of them. Optimum Business has become popular in the industry owing to some of its key offerings such as predictable flat rate pricing and highly reliable voice and data services, especially to small and medium or home-based sized business that require high-speed Internet and voice communications. The Savings Calculator has been designed to take into consideration factors such as a small business’ current provider, monthly charges for phone and Internet, number of phone lines, current Internet provider, and number of employees. The calculator then provides an estimate of the saving involved on phone, internet, communication and critical business services such as credit card processing, shipping and document services, and office equipment and supplies, if the business were to deploy Optimum Business’ solution for the next two years as well as an option to view annual savings.
