Telarus Launches Sabiona: New Partner and Supplier Management System

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Sandy, Utah (PRWEB) November 09, 2012 Telarus Inc., the premier telecom master agent and patent holder of real-time carrier quotes, today announced the launch of Sabiona, its new internal partner and supplier management system. The software enables Telarus employees to run reports on partner activity, set tasks for each other, store important documents such as agent contracts, audit and process commission payments, respond to service quote requests, and to manage supplier and partner relationships on a deeper, more personal level.

"Since we started the company in 2002, nearly all of our software development was focused on carrier research and customer management tools for our partners," commented Adam Edwards, president of Telarus, Inc. "The past few years we've been working diligently behind the scenes to create a comprehensive back office site that our own employees can use to help them provide a superior experience for our partners and suppliers. With a large number of our employees out in the field, their ability to gather intelligence and feed it back to our main support group in Salt Lake City, including setting tasks, is critical to our operation. Sabiona has really given us a leg up on our competition; dramatically helping us improve our partner satisfaction scores in a short period of time. We look forward to continual improvement in the software's capability as well as our employee's ability to provide a superior partner experience." Sabiona development officially commenced in 2008 and has evolved into a fully-functional CRM, task management system, manual quote processing system, trouble ticketing system, sales reporting system, provisioning management system, funnel tracking system, internal email communication system, and financial processing system. During the past six months every Telarus employee participated in the Sabiona beta program and many provided feedback that was incorporated into the final design.

"Giving our employees a voice in Sabiona's design was critical to use achieving our design goals," added Andrew Morgan, VP of Operations for Telarus, Inc. "By soliciting and receiving input from our employees who are on the front lines each day we were able to create tools and systems to make them more efficient, productive, and responsive. Since we've transitioned to the Sabiona system we've seen a 30% increase in sales, partner satisfaction, and employee satisfaction." "In my world, supplier relationships are key," commented Paula McKinnon, Director of Supplier Management for Telarus, Inc. "Sabiona allows me to share with suppliers all of the daily activity taking place here at Telarus that effects them: everything from the number of quotes our Support Operations Center (SOC) has provided, new opportunities that have just come to our attention, new partners who have recently joined Telarus, and sales reports. Real-time access to this data is key for helping our suppliers spend their time more judiciously supporting our account. With Sabiona, everyone wins." "For Sales, we couldn't live without Sabiona," added Robert Butler, VP of Sales - West for Telarus, Inc. "We are out in the field, visiting partners, and deepening relationships as part of our mandate to provide unique value. Knowing what the corporate office is doing to assist my partners is key to coordinating our efforts. It is important for me to know about a partner who recently had a good or bad experience, or if they still have outstanding issues we are trying to resolve, or that their wedding anniversary is next week. It's all in Sabiona." "Probably the most elaborate and important module in Sabiona is the commission processing module," comment Lori O'Rourke, Commissions Manager for Telarus, "We process millions of dollars of commissions each month and with Sabiona I can clearly see where carrier reporting is off: where commissions are underpaid or not paid at all. Having this automation allows me and my staff to focus on fixing the problems and to ensure our valuable partners receive a full and accurate accounting of their commissions each month."
