10n2 Extends Master Agent Offerings with TBI Partnership
April 03, 2012
10n2 Technologies Inc. is expanding its master agent team. The company recently took on Telecom Brokerage (News - Alert) Inc. (TBI) in its Platinum Partner Program. This partnership is sure to benefit players on both sides.
TBI is a master agent that manages partners and subagents who sell TBI’s carrier’s products. The master agent provides back-office support, as well as product training and consultation.
According to this Channel Partners Online report, 10n2 Technologies is a mobile device technology company that has developed software designed to make roads safer today by preventing drivers from talking on their mobile devices.
The software can determine who is driving and who is riding, which allows passengers to talk freely on their devices while drivers are restricted from talking so they can focus on the road.
The pairing of these two companies works because TBI operates a wireless division that has applications and hardware that will fit perfectly with what 10n2 is trying to accomplish.
While the restrictions on drivers might seem extreme, mobile device distraction is to blame for about 6,000 fatalities and as many as 500,000 injuries on America’s roadways. The carnage left in the wake of this has forced many states to take up legislation to protect motorists from the distraction.
Many states already ban the practice of texting while driving for motorists under the age of 21, but they are considering an expansion of that legislation as more drivers utilize mobile devices in their vehicles, making the roads more treacherous.
Master agent TBI, while teamed with 10n2, can offer a solution to help rectify the problem by putting this technology in the hands of end users who can make sure their customers follow the rules of the road. The product they offer includes pre-installed hardware that could affect more than 100 million mobile device users.
TBI master agents will have the ability to manage their customers’ applications, which are a product of 10n2, through a tool called PartnerIQ. This product allows for complete visibility to improve the overall experience for the end user.
The relationship between technology solution providers and companies specializing in master agent services is well established. This partnership between master agent TBI and 10n2 is one that can save lives and help motorists stay compliant with their state laws by restricting their access to mobile devices while on the roadway.
This partnership is especially important to companies who rely on their employees to be safe while on the road. The U.S. Department of Transportation will bring heavy fines to companies whose workers use their mobile devices on the job behind the wheel. This partnership will ease the burden on those companies who have to budget for the possibility of $11,000 fines per violation.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Master Agent, and why should I use Telarus?
ANSWER: A Master Agent is (supposed to be) an agency that 1) signs carrier contracts and consolidates volume, 2) assists its sub-agents with pre-and-post-sales support, 3) consolidates commissions from multiple carriers into one monthly commission statement/payment, 4) leverages its size to gain concessions from carriers on behalf of its agents...
Is Telarus a Master Agent or a Software Company?
ANSWER: Both. When our founders, who came from a financial services and engineering background respectively, set out to build the largest master agency ever envisioned, they did so with a non-telecom perspective. To them, it was not acceptable that quotes took days, even weeks, to come back. It was not acceptable to manage a large base of customers using Excel spreadsheets. 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...
