DRAPER, Utah - January 1, 2007 - Telarus, Inc., premier telecom master agent and patent holder of real-time carrier quotes, today announced that it had doubled its book of business in under
one year from $1M to $2M in total monthly billing.
"It's hard to believe it took just one year to double our book of business" commented Adam Edwards, president and CEO of
Telarus, Inc. He continued, "The one million dollar mark was certainly a huge milestone that took over three years to
attain. Now, in just under one year, we're up to two million. This accomplishment proves without a doubt that our planning,
our strategy, our technology, and most of all, our people have proven themselves to be the best in the industry."
Telarus recently launched VARNetwork.com, a real-time network integrator and value added reseller (VAR) search engine, in
July 2006. Since then over 1,000 VARs have signed up to receive the leads that VARNetwork.com generates.
"The one million dollar mark was great because it validated our business model" added Patrick Oborn, CIO of Telarus, Inc.
"However, we had to think smarter and work harder in order to reach the second million mark so quickly. One of the major
successes of 2006 has been the VAR program, in which we are wooing away VARs in droves with telecom equipment leads and in
return they are sending us carrier business that used to go to other master agencies. By figuring out a way to reciprocate leads
with VARs we plan to be working direct with most major equipment companies in under one year. Three million won't be far
behind now with the help of our new allies."
Telarus was founded in 2002 by Adam Edwards and Patrick Oborn, who came up with the concept of reciprocating telecom
equipment leads to VARs while driving their moving truck from San Clemente, California to their new headquarters in Draper,
Utah. "Every time we asked a VAR for telecom leads" continued Edwards "they would ask us for leads which we didn't have. The
desire to want something in return was logical, understandable, but at the time, impossible. We have now changed that
equation." The company now has 15 employees, 1000 independent sales consultants, 2000 VAR partners, 45,000 online lead
affiliates (otherwise known as publishers), and a United States Patent on GeoQuote - its real-time price quote generation
software. The company continues to fund its growth through internal operations and re-investment without outside investors
or venture capitalists.
"Being able to make decisions quickly without the need to consult with outsiders has played a major role in our success.
When we came up with the VAR Program, our agents were able to take our initial concept and really run with it. What you see
today is a system comprised of mostly their ideas." continued Edwards. "Not having to seek approval from investors or
outside board members allowed us to put this program together in under six months of heavy development time. With Telarus
and VARNetwork firing on all cylinders, $3,000,000 shouldn't be too far off."
