ShopforT1.com Delivers 300,000th T1 Price Quote, Reports over $300,000 in New Business in Q1 2006
DRAPER, UTAH – April 11, 2006 – 300,000 has been the magic number for ShopforT1.com, the privately owned subsidiary of Telarus Inc, during the first quarter of 2006. ShopforT1.com today announced that it had reach two new milestones: the delivery of the 300,000th real-time T1 quote and first quarter sales in excess of $300,000. “$300,000+ in new contracts in under 90 days is a major accomplishment for our small but growing organization.” commented Adam Edwards, president of Telarus, Inc. “It is also validation of the way we do business and our commitment to software development.
By creating tools that give our sales agents and marketing agents a competitive advantage we have blurred the line between a traditional Telecom Master Agent and an Information Technology Firm. We create software on the fly to meet the business demands placed on our very talented sales team. As our affiliate sites gain more visibility and we attract new agents, we are sure to generate many more real-time T1 price quotes. 300,000 – that’s just the beginning.”
According to Patrick Oborn, Chief Technical Officer of Telarus, Inc., the average number of quotes per day has been steadily increasing since the initial launch of ShopforT1.com back in 2003. “What we are seeing is non-linear growth.” commented Oborn. “Every month our public web traffic, our network integrators (VARs), our lead generating agents, and our sales agents are creating more quotes than the month previous. In order to keep up with this ever-increasing demand we have added IT staff and automated most of the processes involved in creating T1 quotes.” ShopforT1.com has also applied for a United States patent to protect its real-time T1 quote system – called GeoQuote – from other “me too” companies. A ruling on the patent is expected from the USPTO sometime later this year. “Our agents continue to guide this company in the direction it needs to go” added Edwards. “By doing right by them and by focusing on continued IT development we have found a winning formula. What you see now is just the beginning of this very fun, very ambitious climb to the top of the telecom space.” About ShopforT1.com ShopforT1.com provides real-time T1 price quoting through it’s patent-pending GeoQuote technology, offering business shoppers a unique opportunity to access instant pricing and availability information for over 12 broadband data and voice service providers.
