BOSTON — May 19, 2020 — Connected2Fiber, the location engagement platform for network buyers and sellers, announced today that Intelligent Fiber Network (IFN), a provider of state-of-the-art technology services, including fiber, has expanded its use of The Connected World platform to plan market expansion and monetize over 80,000 recently-identified, serviceable locations.
As a location engagement platform powered by insights into over 350 million locations, The Connected World enabled IFN to identify over 80,000 serviceable, near-net locations and distribute that coverage automatically to over a dozen partners in their preferred format. Moreover, IFN leveraged the deep, location-based insight of Connected2Fiber’s platform to successfully plan market expansion. This included using polygon drawing capabilities to surface location-based information on commercial buildings to identify markets where prospects have high levels of estimated network spend, are serviceable, and belong to a certain industry of interest.
“At IFN, our mission is to provide innovative, tailored technology solutions to our members, partners, and customers in the most effective, reliable, and economically sound way possible,” states Cory Childs, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at IFN. “Connected2Fiber has enabled our 21 members to identify and promote their serviceable footprint to the market in an automated way, which maximizes their ability to participate in deals and serve customers. Moreover, the use of The Connected World’s insights helps us and our members plan for market expansion and grow in an intelligent way that enables us to provide even more customers with cutting-edge solutions. Ultimately, we strive to adopt best-in-class technology to help our organization thrive, and Connected2Fiber is a foundational investment for us in our growth journey.”
“IFN as an organization is very impressive in the way they leverage technology to serve both their customers and member / owners,” added Ben Edmond, CEO and Founder of Connected2Fiber. “They use The Connected World platform to create a digital footprint of their addressable market and then leverage the application workflow to take action and grow the organization. This broad view of the capabilities of our platform is exactly what we like to see in a client.”
IFN is currently evaluating further use of the platform, including leveraging it to streamline the quoting process and engage more effectively with their channel community through its new portal capability.
“IFN will continue to invest in technologies that enable us to be more competitive and efficient,” maintains Todd Willis, Carrier Sales Manager at IFN. “From what we’ve experienced on the wholesale side of our business, the investment in Connected2Fiber has resulted in significant economic return and we’re excited to see where this technology leads us.”
