Telarus Wins the Designation of Top Master Agent as Voted by the Members of the Telecom Association Members for the Third Year in a Row.
DRAPER UT, December 23, 2010 - Telarus, Inc., premier telecom master agent and patent holder of real-time carrier quotes, today announced that it has been voted the Top Master Agent for 2010 by the members of the Telecom Association. The award is the Association's highest honor in the Master Agent category and is a direct result of votes cast by eligible members of TA, including agents, consultants, and VARs. To be deemed "eligible to vote", TA members need to be experienced in selling telecom services to business end-users and have a professional and independent presence.
The win marked the third year in a row that the members of the Telecom Association have chosen Telarus as their top Master Agent. The accomplishment demonstrates the strength of its marketing, lead generation, quoting tools, and back office support staff.
"The Telarus agent program is truly unique" commented Adam Edwards, President of Telarus. "I believe our strong focus on technology and sales support on large deals has enabled us to win this award for the third consecutive time. We have invested significant resources, time, and money in helping agents win large deals and ensuring that the provisioning process goes smoothly. 2011 will be no exception, brining innovations never seen before in the channel."
Past Telecom Association awards won by Telarus include the Members Choice Award for Top Master Agent (2009, 2008) and President's Award for Program Innovation (2007). This is the first time any master agency has earned this award three years in a row.
"Over 800 votes were cast this year, almost double the number from last year, and all votes were double verified for eligibility", stated TA Executive Director Dan Baldwin. "After scrubbing all votes to ensure only one vote was accepted per agency and all agencies were active in business sales, we were amazed that we had an exact tie. While all TA's 'master agency' vendor members have ardent fans within TA's membership, in 2010 there was Telarus, WTG and then everyone else."
"We are truly grateful to receive this award" added Lance Akins, VP of Sales for Telarus. "This year's award came with a unique bonus; thanks to the new voting system, agents were able to add comments supporting their decision. All of us here at Telarus were overwhelmed and humbled to see the thoughtful feedback agents gave. It's great to see that our hard work is making a tangible difference in the lives of our agent partners. Our business is their success. Thank you agents!"
