DARPER, UT - July 17, 2008 - Telarus, Inc., premier telecom master agent and creator of
ShopforT1.com, ShopforEthernet.net, and VARNetwork.com, today announced it has launched
the next generation of enterprise carrier research tools focused exclusively on MPLS networks.
Likewise, Telarus has launched a public-facing web site to attract MPLS leads for its agents:
"We firmly believe that MPLS is the future of WAN networks," commented Adam Edwards, president
of Telarus. "We have invested heavily into software development that leverages our vast
archive of carrier quotes in order to provide visibility into which carriers have the highest
probability of being the best fit for any given multi-location MPLS prospect. This valuable information
will point our agents in the right direction every time, increasing their likelihood of
closing the sale and maximizing cost savings to their clients."
The MPLS tool was designed from the ground up with the input of many key Telarus
vendors, including MegaPath Networks. "When Telarus asked us to review their plans
for their MPLS quoting tool and to provide guidance on the direction the software
should take, we were more than willing to jump in and help out," said Dan Foster,
SVP/GM of Channels & SMB Markets for MegaPath. "This is the first key step to automating the MPLS
quoting process, which will allow us to participate in a greater volume of MPLS opportunities
that are aligned with our network deployment. We're also pleased to offer all
Telarus agents a hefty bonus for all Q3 MPLS sales - it's a win-win-win!"
The Telarus MPLS quote tool is comprised of several new technologies, including:
Telarus will pass all of the MegaPath MPLS spiff through to its agents in line with
its 100% spiff pass-through policy. The spiff will cap out at $10,000 per deal.
- customer-driven site list file upload
- bulk location upload / SQL record creation
- dynamically-generated MPLS questionnaire
- carrier serviceability based upon trailing 18-month GeoQuote archive data
- quote request standardization for vendors
- automated price quote turn-around (coming in Q4 2008)
Other vendors that are available through
the Telarus MPLS quote tool include: ACC Business, AT&T, Accel Networks, Cavalier, Level3,
NewEdge Networks, Network Innovations, NuVox, One Communications, PAETEC, Telnes,
TelePacific, TW Telecom, and XO.
"We are so excited to be able to have the IT resources in-house to make this kind
of technology a reality for our agents" added Lance Akins, VP of Sales for Telarus.
"The kind of partners we are now attracting have been asking us for an MPLS research
tool for some time and we are proud to say to the world that we've reached the finish
line. With added user feedback we will continue to evolve our technology and eventually
build an instant-quoting capability later this year. Agents with an enterprise focus
will have more information at their fingertips than ever before in the history of telecom."
