VIENNA, Va., Dec. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Telarix, Inc., formerly known as
Emerging Technologies Group, today announced the commercial availability of
its new Offer Management Service (OMS), a completely outsourced solution that
effectively manages international voice rate offers. Telarix recently
concluded a successful beta test of the new international rating service with
International carriers face major challenges due to a lack of dial code
standardization and the rapid proliferation of fixed and mobile termination
numbers. Telarix's OMS mitigates potential business risk, normalizing,
loading and analyzing vendor offers, which are received daily in various
formats and typically contain a significant number of international dial codes
and rates. Telarix's OMS can make new rates available for routing
consideration within minutes of receiving an offer.
"Telarix's innovative solution has automated a previously labor-intensive
task that enables Global Crossing to efficiently expand its international
voice services," said Frank de Bloois, vice president, global voice carrier
management at Global Crossing. "The result has been consistent, accurate and
rapid offer processing, which enables us to offer our customers timely market
based pricing for their international voice requirements."
Telarix's intelligent OMS delivers highly accurate and analyzed cost
rates. Inconsistent or inaccurate vendor offer information is identified,
extracted and returned for correction. This drives the quality of the
information received from vendors and eliminates ambiguous data from offers
that may lead to disputes and cost overruns if not detected.
"A major challenge for carriers today is the need to validate the accuracy
of huge amounts of low value data to find the one or two dial code
discrepancies that pose a major risk in a pile of 20,000 new rates. OMS helps
minimize the potential risk of inaccuracies that can occur in the manual
management of dial code offers -- all with different formats and different
ways of identifying international destinations," stated Shawn Zargham, chief
technology officer at Telarix. "Global Crossing is always looking for ways to
push the envelope of best practices when it comes to managing their
interconnect business and we are all excited about the significant
efficiencies OMS has helped them achieve."
