Global Capacity's Automated Pricing Tool Provides Access to Competitive Bids From New & Existing Suppliers, Increasing the Conversion of Quotes to Orders

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Jun 29, 2011) - Global Capacity, the world's leading telecommunications information and logistics company, announces today that MegaPath, the largest, privately-held, end-to-end, facilities-based data, VoIP and security technologies provider, has selected its One Marketplace Access Exchange platform, an intelligent quoting platform that provides fast and accurate delivery of competitive market rates. As a result, MegaPath has automated its quote processes while gaining visibility to pricing available from its existing suppliers, as well as from a global marketplace of competitive providers. This visibility arms MegaPath with accurate, automated data to ensure that the rates put forth to its customers are the most competitive, increasing MegaPath's chances to convert quotes to orders.

Serving nationwide SMBs and enterprise businesses with voice, data, and security solutions, MegaPath processes high volumes of quotes every month. To increase customer response time and to automate this process, the company selected Global Capacity's One Marketplace Access Exchange as its robust quoting tool, providing the breadth of information MegaPath and its clients require. Additionally, the tool is supplier neutral, allowing competitive bids from a marketplace of providers, including MegaPath's existing supplier relationships. Finally, One Marketplace Access Exchange offers MegaPath seamless fulfillment of orders placed with One Marketplace suppliers, delivered via an interconnection with the One Marketplace Access Exchange.

"Global Capacity offers us a reliable, automated platform that gives us access to competitive network quotes in real-time. This allows us to be more responsive and accurate in supporting our customers, while also increasing the conversion of quotes to orders," states Beth Tyebjee, Vice President of Marketing at MegaPath. "Furthermore, we have reduced our costs to quote, achieving greater ROI for our overall business."

"Since choosing our One Marketplace Access Exchange, MegaPath's volume of monthly quote requests have grown dramatically," continues Patrick Shutt, Chief Executive Officer at Global Capacity. "MegaPath is able to provide more competitive quotes for services and suppliers that it did not have access to previously. Additionally, our One Marketplace suppliers often provide MegaPath the most competitive rates, providing them new, competitive advantages. We are honored to provide these business opportunities to both MegaPath and our other One Marketplace clients."
