CHANNEL PARTNERS CarrierQuoteShop.com has announced the release of CarrierQuoteShop 2.0. The new version of the website, originally launched in March 2010 to serve the quoting needs of the diverse telecommunications channel, now includes the most popular data product, Ethernet-over-copper, a new master agent control panel and enhanced carrier management tools and reports.
We are excited to continue our work building the universal carrier quoting platform that we believe will become the industry standard,” commented Adam Edwards, president of Telarus Inc. (Booth #3025 at the Channel Partners Conference & Expo). With this new release, the users of the system now have access to more products, master agents have better visibility into the activities of their sub-agents, and carriers can align their resources to support their CQS user-base more effectively.”
CarrierQuoteShop.com, built from the patented GeoQuote system created by Telarus, was originally formed with companies including MegaPath, XO, Telnes Broadband, TelePacific, One Communications, and AireSpring. A new wave of carriers is scheduled for launch in Q4 2010.
These new enhancements to CarrierQuoteShop will improve the user, master agent, and carriers collective experience,” commented Andrew Morgan, VP of Web Development for Telarus. As we continue to listen to user feedback we are confident that our quoting platform will improve the lives of our users and carrier clients, providing more information, faster, in a more organized and intuitive fashion. Making the channel more efficient is our ultimate goal, and version 2.0 of CarrierQuoteShop.com moves us another step in that direction.”
CarrierQuoteShop.com has tripled its subscriber base in the past quarter and has big plans for the future.
At first we were the ones pushing people to get on board,” added Edwards. Now, many carriers are actively seeking us out and signing up. Everyone is realizing that it makes no sense to spend valuable time manually quoting transactional service. Were excited to play a part in the automation of certain product lines in the channel as the services we sell continue to evolve in price and complexity.”
