Master agent Telarus, coming off its annual partner summit last week in Deer Valley, Utah, is rolling out a mobile app that allows its partners to access carrier pricing, fiber-optic cable and data-center locations, and other information while in the field with customers.
“Telarus partners have always been able to see what others can’t by using our patented software tools. Now we are extending that reach to the field, where Telarus partners will be able to ‘wow’ their customers with the near-instant access they have to information that helps in the supplier selection process,” said Adam Edwards, president of Telarus. “With this app, combined with the Telarus support team, our partners will have a distinct advantage over their competition.”
Other features include the ability for a partner to look up contact info for his/her local supplier channel manager; look up their President’s Club status and support contacts; access new supplier product and Telarus back-office training videos; and to provide feedback for the new features.
“Top-producing partners are often away from their office and we needed to put time saving tools in their hands,” added Patrick Oborn, co-founder of Telarus and patent holder of GeoQuote. “We had to figure out a way to push information out to them in a mobile-friendly format that would make their lives easier, which is exactly what this app was created to do. More importantly, this app also forms the platform by which we can push our additional features as we dream them up.”
The app, which was first announced at last week’s 2015 Telarus Partner Summit, is free in the Apple App Store and Google Play. You must have a valid/current Telarus agent ID and password to unlock the app.
