One Communications has announced its selection of two industry leading Agent program tools to support its Business Partner Program: RPM Software’s Agent for commission reporting and tracking; and Salestream Software’s MasterStream “Instant Quotes” solution for real-time product pricing and availability.
RPM Software’s Agent is an enterprise-class commissioning and channel management solution specifically designed for the telecommunications industry. Already adopted by many agents industry wide for use with their sub-agents and/or direct sales teams, One Communications has selected the tool to enhance the timeliness and ease-of-use of commission information it provides to its partners. Partners will benefit from being able to quickly and efficiently submit commissions downstream to their sub-agents and sales teams, while also enjoying more user-friendly commission presentment, accurate and timely commission reporting, and access to current and historical commission information, according to One.
Salestream Software’s MasterStream is a real-time, online quoting tool that allows agents to source pricing and availability information on products across a wide range of carriers in order to help them identify the best solutions and providers to meet their prospects’ needs. Through its new relationship with Salestream Software, One Communications will make its local services, Internet access, and integrated access pricing and availability information visible to users of the MasterStream platform, enabling its current and potential Agents and Master Agents and their sub-agents to provide accurate and timelier quotes to end users.
One Communications will be conducting initial deployment testing of the RPM Agent solution during early fourth quarter 2009, and expects broader availability to its Business Partners later in the fourth quarter of 2009. Pricing and availability information for its local services, Internet access, and integrated access solutions within Salestream’s MasterStream platform are also expected to be released in the fourth quarter of 2009.
