Cablevision introduces Optimum Business Savings Calculator

By Rahul Arora, TMCnet Contributor

To help small businesses save on phone and Internet services, Cablevision Systems (News - Alert) has introduced the Optimum Business Savings Calculator.

The calculator from Cablevision can accurately estimate how much money a business will save over the next two years, once it switches to Optimum (News - Alert) Business. The estimates are based on information such as current provider, monthly charges for phone and Internet, number of phone lines, current Internet provider, and number of employees.

“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,” said Stephanie Anderson, vice president of marketing for commercial services, in a statement. “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. Each customer’s story 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.”

Apart from viewing the annual savings, businesses can also calculate their savings on mission-critical business services from Optimum Business Benefits partners including credit card processing, shipping and document services, and office equipment and supplies.

“We serve pediatrics and adults with home medical equipment needs and have been an Optimum Business customer for more than two years,” said Joe McGovern, co-owner of NuTech Healthcare Management in Islandia, New York. “We have been in disbelief about the $10,000 in annual savings we’ve realized since switching. In tough economic times, having that amount of money to reinvest in the business to grow our abilities to serve patients is incredible.”

 “We made the switch to Optimum two years ago after realizing that we could save more than $2,000 a year,” said Scott Mitchell, owner of Boardwalk Marina based in Stratford, CT. “These savings have helped us make enhancements to our marina to better serve customers. We’ve also saved time as a result of having one bill for our Internet and voice.”
