Schooley Mitchell Services


The telecommunications industry is a dynamic marketplace. Technologies are constantly changing, which can easily lead to confusion. Let us do the work for you.
Schooley Mitchell audits your landline, long distance, toll-free, fax, Internet and wireless services to identify cost savings, increase efficiency and recover billing errors.
We negotiate directly with telecom companies on your behalf to ensure you are receiving the best services at the best possible price. Our risk-free recommendations, implementations and continued monitoring allow you to focus on what you do best – running your business.

Merchant Services

Credit and debit card processing is often referred to as merchant services. Continuous calls from persistent salespeople are bothersome and time consuming. In such an oversaturated market, it’s hard to know who to trust.
Let us clear up the confusion.
Schooley Mitchell has developed robust analysis tools that identify and eliminate
many of the fees associated with accepting payment cards. Our systematic auditing will reduce your electronic payment processing spend and improve services.
We analyze all of your merchant services systems including credit, debit, eCheck and ACH transactions. Oftentimes, savings can be implemented without having to change processors or switch equipment.


Small Package Shipping and Courier costs are steadily on the rise, and invoices for shipping services can be hundreds of pages long. The charges can be confusing and onerous to track. Schooley Mitchell can help. We provide practical solutions to reduce small package shipping and courier costs through billing error recovery, service guarantees, optimized pricing, and cost-effective shipping practices.
Plus, we’re completely independent of all small package shippers and couriers, so we’re only motivated to help you! Let us take those invoices off your desk so you can focus on what really matters – growing your business.

7 Steps to Saving Money

  1. You decide to authorize Schooley Mitchell to review your expenditures and provide us with copies of recent invoices
  2. Schooley Mitchell will contact your current providers as needed and with your approval. You may need to provide Schooley Mitchell with additional records so that we can provide a detailed report and analysis of your communications expenses to you. All of the information you provide and we gather is held in the strictest confidence.
  3. Schooley Mitchell will provide a detailed report showing your current services and their associated costs.  Schooley Mitchell will provide recommendations on how to lower those expenses and put more money into your bank account rather than the carriers.
  4. You are in control and have the right to reject any of our recommendations. No changes are ever made without your written approval.
  5. Schooley Mitchell will implement all recommendations that you approve to be sure that they are as seamless and transparent as possible, and that they achieve the expected results.
  6. Schooley Mitchell will monitor your communcations bills and usage as well as vendor rates for the life of our service agreement. We will provide monthly updates on your bills and usage as well as detailed information regarding the savings found through our implemented recommendations and billing errors/credits found on your behalf. We will be vigilant in our search for further savings and will make further recomendations when we find additional opportunities for additional savings.
  7. Schooley Mitchell will invoice you for our share of the actual savings after you receive those savings and they have been verified. We will continue to invoice you per the service agreement – after which all the savings belong to you.

There is NO cost and NO risk to you. We are not a re-seller and do not sell any carrier service.

Our only source of revenue is a share of the actual savings you receive.

We invoice our portion only after you receive the actual savings.

If we do not find savings, you owe us nothing.
