Startup SpotCheck Technology, a provider of network and point-of-sale line monitoring services, introduced its channel program Monday. The launch follows a successful testing phase with Sandler Partners, which will be the company’s first master agency.
SpotCheck is an automated line monitoring services that finds outages at point-of-sale locations before lost sales pile up and tests backup lines so enterprises aren’t without service when their primary network goes down. The service often is used for remote or unmanned point-of-sale locations.
SpotCheck provides an innovative and affordable solution to the time-consuming challenge of monitoring backup lines and manned and unmanned point-of-sale locations,” said Leon Richter, SpotCheck co-founder and CEO. Our proprietary software applications test networks, generate highly customizable email alerts when lines are down, including diagnostic information and custom information on a line-by-line basis, and deliver detailed weekly and monthly reports on all testing activity.”
SpotCheck was built with the agent channel in mind and delivers an evergreen revenue stream to telecom agents. SpotChecks inked its first channel partnership with Sandler Partners, one of the telecom industrys largest master agencies and an honoree in the Inc. 5000 list of Americas Fastest Growing Companies in 2010 and 2011. The companies have been delivering SpotCheck services to Sandler Partners customers in a beta-testing phase that began in third quarter of 2011.
SpotCheck consulted with us about the needs of the agent channel and made it painless for us to add them to our portfolio,” said Alan Sandler, managing partner for Sandler Partners. They delivered a very strong, evergreen agreement and are bringing our clients up within a week of contract signing.”
SpotCheck already has delivered significant benefits to Sandler Partners clients.
“SpotCheck went live very quickly for our first client and delivered benefits right out the gate as Hurricane Irene knocked out service at numerous remote point-of-sale locations across the Eastern Seaboard,” said Cesar Navarro, carrier pricing manager for Sandler Partners. Our client, which operates self-serve natural gas fueling stations, achieved significant ROI on SpotCheck’s services almost overnight.”
