Oct 08, 2012 by
Milestone signals mass adoption of the company's software which has become a telecom industry standard.
SANDY UT, - Telarus Inc., the premier telecom master agent and patent holder of real-time carrier quotes, today announced that its GeoQuote software has produced its 1,000,000th price quote. GeoQuote is the online platform Telarus developed for its partners to check broadband and telecom service pricing from over 40 carriers nationwide.
"Reaching the 1,000,000th real-time quotes milestone is a testament to the value we are providing our partners and suppliers," commented Adam Edwards, president of Telarus, Inc. "Not only is the software the only one of its kind in the industry, its showing with all clarity the value of obtaining information in real-time from the phone companies. We are proud to be able to connect our partners and suppliers together and to help each side work with the other in a more efficient and profitable way."
GeoQuote, originally created and patented in 2003 by Telarus, Inc., can quote the more transactional products offered to business by carriers; products like Data T1, PRI, Ethernet over Copper, Cable Internet/voice/TV, and more.
"When we originally pioneered the GeoQuote platform almost ten years ago, people in the telecom world didn't immediately see the value since they were used to quoting every single opportunity manually, by hand," added Patrick Oborn, VP of Business Development for Telarus. "Even though we were a little ahead of our time, our partners today wouldn't dream of trying to sell transactional products without the speed and efficiency that GeoQuote brings to the table."
To determine carrier pricing, GeoQuote uses a combination of methods:
- Direct XML-API communication with the carrier's availability and pricing systems
- Geo-mapping / GIS
- Database standardization to calculate the exact distance from a user's location to the location of the nearest vendor's POP, or Point of Presence
GeoQuote continues to have an error rate of less than 2%, making it one of the most trusted platforms in the industry. If you are interested in taking advantage of the GeoQuote platform, please contact Justin Chugg at (877) 346-3232 for more information.
