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 Global Crossing. 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."
