Automated MPLS quoting and ordering a hit with the Channel

Since we launched MPLS quoting via 1Portal back in August, we have seen fantastic uptake of the functionality, with over 70 partners already adopting it, raising more than 650 quotes.

Quoting through our award winning 1Portal dramatically reduces the time to deliver an MPLS solution down to just a few minutes. Our Partners can now engage in the most complex deals effortlessly.

Furthermore, by automating these quotes in 1Portal, we capture essential detail that speeds up the ordering process further down the line, reducing the time to realise revenue, as well as eradicating human error in the quote to delivery journey

In addition to the quoting on the connectivity involved, we consider the wider solution and use cases for MPLS, and include:

  • Quickly produce multiple versions of the same solution to look at different bandwidth combinations
  • Full and clear break down of all components and costs
  • Additional services such as central internet break out, SIP Exchange or private access to Public Cloud providers
  • Automatic visual rendering of a solution so it can easily be discussed with end customers

We are on the verge of deploying our 3rd additional feature release, which will allow Partners to further define the logical network setup like VPN’s, VLAN’s, bandwidth splits and quality of service. It was also score the resiliency of each customer site in the solution, so you can easily pinpoint any areas for upsell.

All of our Partners have access to this functionality as standard, if you would like a run through please contact your account manager
