Show sponsor ACC Business (Booths 113-115) announces it is launching a new online pricing portal, Sales Information Management Pricing Link or simply SIMPL, which will be available next month to all contracted sales agents.
SIMPL will allow agents to create customized pricing for data products including private line, frame relay, managed Internet service, private network transport (IP VPN), class of Service (voice, video and data over IP), as well as dedicated voice access loops.
The tool is designed to provide agents with personalized proposals in a matter of minutes. SIMPL will cut the amount of time to price our data products by 70 to 75 percent and will not require special knowledge or skills to use, says Dan Morford, product manager at ACC Business. Agents simply check boxes and provide information, such as area codes, to produce personalized quotes.
ACC Business designed SIMPL with input from its agents. The pricing tool was tested by more than a dozen agents and feedback was incorporated to ensure agents find the tool flexible and efficient.
ACC Business is dedicated to listening to agents and responding to their needs, says ACC President and CEO John D. Baker. SIMPL, our new data pricing tool, is one example of how ACC Business is making it easier for agents to do business with us.
Agents will be able to see a live demonstration of SIMPL at ACCs booth during The Channel Partners Conference & Expo this week.
