Carrier relations teams at network providers have the difficult task of identifying and managing network partner relationships that can help the organization maximize network reach to participate in as many deals as possible. Often, these teams are challenged by an inability to easily identify which network partners can cover certain locations where the organization may have a gap. Much of the connectivity space still executes wholesale business introductions to new carrier partners via references. There is no systemic way to quickly and reliably identify which carrier partners may actually be able to serve a specific location and existing toolsets provide little to no value. Moreover, even if carrier relations could identify a new network partner, there is no out of the box solution to help with organizing partner coverage.
Telecom partner serviceable locations are still communicated in spreadsheets or via email, among other communication mechanisms, from the partner network providers and with varying degrees of data quality.

Not only will the platform help identify optimal network partners by location to drive down costs but it will help sales teams participate in as many deals as possible by ensuring network providers can service all required locations either themselves or via partners.
