CIO Live Web Event - The Men's Wearhouse and Retail Industry Leaders Association to Host Webcast on Maximizing Value in Telecomm

DENVER, April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- What: Jeff Marshall, CIO for The Men's Wearhouse, one of North America's largest specialty retailers of men's apparel with over 700 stores and Cathy Hotka, CIO of the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA), the world's leading alliance of retailers and their product will host a Live Web Event and discuss current challenges and opportunities in securing world class contracts and implementing best practices to optimize telecommunications investment in the retail environment.

Competition from excess suppliers and new technologies continue to erode pricing for both wireline and wireless services, as well as directly influence how retailers utilize and procure telecom services. Despite a decade of falling prices and the financial collapse of many carriers, there has never been a better opportunity for retailers to significantly reduce their telecommunications costs.

During this presentation, they will discuss the most common problems retailers face in negotiating and procuring telecom services and tips on how to get these costs under control, including:

* What are the best practices to source and negotiate telecom services? * What are the key challenges and solutions retailers face in securing best-in-class supplier contracts? * What common myths and avoidable errors do retailers mistakenly make?
