Mobile app enables channel partners to easily generate quotes for connectivity services
London, 25 June 2015 – Colt announces today the launch of the Colt FeetOnStreet App, which enables sales teams to check whether a building is connected to Colt’s network and provide customers with a quote in real time. This free mobile app is provided to Colt’s network of agents and franchisees as well as the company’s direct sales team.
The Colt FeetOnStreet App is iOS and Android compatible and can be accessed on a tablet or smartphone, enabling Colt’s partners to quickly respond to customer requirements. The mobile application’s main features include:
- Visual identification of buildings connected to the Colt network either by entering the address or by viewing it on a map;
- Live price display for the main services available on fibre or leased lines;
- Direct access to Colt’s extranet for access to comprehensive information on products and pricing.
“The FeetOnStreet App is a powerful visual tool that helps us respond quickly to our customers,” explains James Kershaw, Sales Director at Colt. “Thanks to the app, our partners now have a tool that is simple to use and enables them to locate new prospects based on their location and get a quote in seconds. This helps speed up the sales cycle for the partner considerably and helps customers make informed decisions based on reliable information.”
The Colt FeetOnStreet App is one of many tools designed by Colt to support its network of indirect sales agents and franchisees. Colt has a network of over 170 agents across Europe and the United States as well as 22 European franchisees. The partner network has access to Colt’s comprehensive product portfolio, ordering tools, billing and excellent customer support. Agents and franchisees also benefit from training and certification, which enable them to better support their customers’ requirements and quickly grow their business.
Colt provides network, voice, data centre and managed cloud services to thousands of businesses around the world, allowing them to focus on delivering their business goals instead of the underlying infrastructure. Customers include 18 of the top 25 bank and diversified financial groups and 19 out of the top 25 companies in both global media and telecoms industries (Forbes 2000 list, 2014). In addition, Colt works with over 50 exchange venues and 13 European central banks.
Colt operates across Europe, Asia and North America with connections into over 200 cities globally. It recently completed the acquisition of KVH, an integrated managed communications and IT infrastructure services business, with headquarters in Tokyo and operations in Hong Kong, Seoul and Singapore.
