Telarus Named Top Windstream Partner for Sixth Straight Year

By Rory Lidstone July 11, 2013

Telarus, a value added distributor that holds contracts with the world's leading telecommunication carriers, was recently named as Windstream's top-producing distributor for 2012. While this is a huge success on its own, this is the sixth consecutive year that Telarus has earned the title — and the first since the PAETEC and legacy Windstream indirect sales channels merged — making the accomplishment all the more impressive.

Furthermore, 2012 ended up being a record year for the Windstream indirect channel, with a whopping 55-percent growth over 2011.

"We extend a very hearty congratulation to Telarus, their employees, and their sales partners for an outstanding 2012," said John Leach, EVP of Sales for Windstream Communications, in a statement. "Our partnership has yielded unique benefits through the integration of our quoting systems and sales support teams. As we continue to reinvest in our award-winning business data, voice, and cloud product lines, we anticipate continued success both with Telarus and our other valued channel partners in 2013."

Windstream's success of late has earned the company recognition of its own, as it was recently named to the 2013 FORTUNE 500 list of largest U.S. companies ranked in terms of revenue. The company ranked 414 based on $6.2 billion in revue earned in 2012.

Around that time, Telarus became a member of CompTIA, a non-profit trade association that focuses on advancing the global interests of IT professionals and companies through education and certification.

Telarus began working with Windstream when the latter acquired Nuvox, a privately held local exchange carrier, in 2009. Telarus' patent for GeoQuote, a real-time availability and quote tool, has played a major role in its success as a Windstream partner as it is used to sell transactional services for Windstream and other suppliers. GeoQuote also offers a localized view of Windwstream's fiber endpoints, which has proved helpful in researching high-capacity broadband opportunities.
