The platform has curated data on over 350 million commercial buildings, 5,800 networks, and 16 million tenants to accurately map each location and provide insight into the networks that serve it and tenants that reside in it. This intelligence essentially creates a “digital market blueprint” and feeds all plan to price applications in the platform to help network providers drive sustainable revenue growth.

Location Data

At the heart of The Connected World’s location intelligence is its location data. Without accurate identification and positioning of a location, all other data surrounding it is less meaningful.

Automated Go-To-Market Workflows

The Connected World leverages location-based insight to develop go-to-market applications that automate the plan to price activities for network providers. Each application is easy-to-use, fully integrated with another in a logical flow, and has API-enabled capabilities so communication with other systems is immediate and seamless.

Plan

Network providers often struggle with making the business case for network expansion. They don’t understand market potential, the competitive landscape, and other critical factors. The Connected World’s Planning capability will enable users to:

$

Create a business case for building a network route by quantifying market potential through analysis of total estimated network spend data and other demand data attributes

$

Effectively plan sales resources along a new route to maximize revenue

$

Determine how to better architect your network to serve complex enterprise requirements

(e.g. multi-cloud environments, etc.)
$

Understand the competitive landscape for a potential network build

Identify

Network providers need to ensure they are identifying their total addressable market and communicating with market partners in order to participate in as many opportunities as possible. Whether buying or selling network, The Connected World’s Identify capability can help ensure maximum deal participation through:

$

Identification and management of all serviceable locations by a network provider – whether on-net, near-net or partner owned

$

Automated communication of serviceable locations to wholesale and ecosystem partners in their preferred carrier formats

$

API and portal-based access to a network provider’s serviceable locations

$

Identification of new network partners to service location-specific customer requirements for connectivity

Prioritize

Once potential customers are identified, whether it be through an inbound RFP or identified as being serviceable by a provider’s network, network provider sales teams need to quickly prioritize their responses to maximize their selling productivity and, ultimately, revenue. The Connected World’s Prioritize capability enables this by providing the ability to:

$

Quickly display an “intersection analysis” between an inbound RFP’s locations and a network provider’s serviceable locations

$

Filter on the most ideal locations to pursue in a territory based on a variety of factors – including ability to serve, estimated telecom spend for the location, and competitive density of the building

$

Determine prospect fit with a network provider’s offerings across multiple dimensions – including analysis of a prospect’s technology stack, their industry classification, etc.

Price

Configure, Price, Quote (CPQ) within the connectivity industry is a very complex process and a struggle for most. Product pricing is often the reason why deals are lost or margins are small while the quoting process is often very long to the point where network providers fail to respond to bids on time. The Connected World platform has solved the critical problems within network CPQ with its Price capability by empowering network providers to:

$

Easily build a customized, channel-specific product pricing catalog that spans multiple connectivity types – from Ethernet to Broadband and more

$

Immediately and seamlessly check partner serviceability, product availability, and product pricing at a specific location or set of locations through API capabilities to determine product costing information for use in the pricing process and construction of a product pricing catalog

$

Define location-level product pricing logic by leveraging location-specific data attributes, including connectivity status, competitive density, geography, entity type, and more

$

Rapidly quote thousands of locations leveraging the price book and location intelligence capabilities within The Connected World
