“I feel like we’ve won the Super Bowl and World Series, all in the span of one week” commented Adam Edwards, president of Telarus. “Many people have asked the secret to our recent success; as though Telarus became successful overnight. The fact is, we’ve been executing on our unique business model for well over 4 years, quietly attracting new partners and finding new customers both online and offline. Likewise, our agents work extremely hard and they are extremely loyal. We work as a team, not individuals, and we reward our team with new technology that allows them to process more orders in less and less time. It’s just that simple.”
Telarus was nominated for the TA Members Choice Award for Top Master Agent for the first time in 2006 and was awarded the President’s Choice Award for Innovation. After another year of double-digit growth, voting members of the Association finally gave Telarus the nod for the Top Master Agent award.
“On behalf of the Telecom Association I’d like to congratulate Telarus and the other candidates for an outstanding vote” added Dan Baldwin, president of the Telecom Association. “Telarus has always been a peculiar entity because they attract business through affiliates and then distribute such leads to their agents – a model many inside the telecom industry thought would never work. Kudos to Telarus for not following the status quo and for becoming the newest winner of the top Master Agent category.”
“Winning this award is a major coup for Telarus” said Lance Akins, VP of Sales. “It shows just how committed we are to our agent’s livelihoods. We really do lose sleep over how to help them become more successful and they return the favor by leveraging our technology to increase their own productivity. We hope that this award will increase public awareness that there is a master agent who can write software, integrate with all of its carriers for real-time quotes, deliver internet leads to its agents, and wire accurate commissions on-time each and every month.”
