Easily Identify Network Serviceability and
Product Cost By Location
Identifying network serviceability of specific locations is often very difficult for carrier relations teams. Dealing with identifying the locations that your network buildout can reach is hard enough. When you add the need to wrangle spreadsheets, emails, and partner portals to identify those locations where your partners can serve, this becomes a monumental task. However, failure to do so accurately and quickly leads to fallout and response times that are too slow.
Beyond merely identifying serviceable locations, carrier relations teams are responsible for determining product availability and costs for those locations. Especially in a world shifting toward SD-WAN, being able to accurately and quickly gain access to broadband availability and cost information at a location level will be essential to win deals.
But this, too, is often a manual process and can lead to an inability to find the most cost-effective connectivity options available, putting at risk the sales opportunity and profit margin on a deal. Finally, working with the sales team to prioritize and price out RFPs can be a challenge. Even if carrier relations teams could quickly generate ideal lists of serviceable locations with associated product availability as well as costs, cross-referencing these lists with RFPs and guessing at optimal pricing is extraordinarily time consuming. Ultimately, these processes are too slow and ineffective, leading to lost and abandoned revenue opportunities.
The Connected World platform was designed to help network buyers overcome all of these challenges by injecting location-specific data and automation into the process.
Our customers rely on us to provide access solutions to all their locations. We needed to know what providers are available? What providers are near net? We needed this information quickly and reliably. Connected2Fiber was the only platform that had all of this information in one place.
