Telarus Inc. has added switched local phone service (POTS) to its patented real-time carrier quoting technology, GeoQuote. Using GeoQuote, agents of Telarus can now check on the availability and pricing of POTS lines, including add-on features, from multiple carriers in real time.
“Ever since we built GeoQuote in 2003 to process real-time commercial telecom service quotes, we’ve not been able to check the pricing and availability of one of the most common services our customers need: local phone service (POTS),” said Adam Edwards, president of Telarus. “Without inclusion into GeoQuote, selling a POTS line was every bit as involved as selling a DS3 line, so many of our agents would just ignore those sales. After receiving a significant amount of agent requests we decided that it would be in our company’s best interest to invest in POTS pricing technology to enable our agents to capture 100 percent of the potential revenue.”
