Master Agent Featured Articles
A master agent is an agency that signs carrier contracts and consolidates volume, assists its sub-agents with pre-and-post-sales support, consolidates commissions from multiple carriers into one monthly commission statement/payment, and leverages its size to gain concessions from carriers on behalf of its agents.
Since master agents pool the volume of hundreds of independent agents into a single contract with each carrier, the community at large does not have to bear the burden of sales quotas, providing for a more stable and stress-free income stream.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Master Agent, and why should I use Telarus?

It was not acceptable to be in the dark with relation to all of the carrier's service footprint. The only way to build the Master Agent of the Future was to invest heavily in software so that the necessary efficiencies could be built into the quoting, customer management, accounting, and commissioning systems...
