Telarus Adds POTS to GeoQuote

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.”

The GeoQuote POTS tool enables Telarus agents to quote:

  • Multiple Carriers – Currently, GeoQuote is quoting POTS service pricing and availability from AT&T, Qwest, and Cavalier, with more expected to be included by the end of the year.
  • Bundled Lines with Different Packages – GeoQuote POTS allows agents to quote groups of lines with similar characteristics. (i.e., one plain line for a fax machine, five main lines with voice mail and caller ID, and one line with conference calling and anonymous call-block).
  • More than 100 Features – GeoQuote POTS allows agents to add “bundled” packages (feature-bundles in one add-on price) as well as a la carte feature adds. Agents can build a plan exactly to their clients’ specifications.
