VAR Network.com Begins Beta Test
by Michelle Edwards
May 30, 2006 - Telarus, Inc. today announced the beta launch of VARNetwork.com, a web site that facilitates
the search for localization of network integrators and value added resellers by companies
and individuals seeking their services.
According to Adam Edwards, president of Telarus Inc., "The whole idea of creating a VARNetwork system
just fell on our laps. After successfully creating a T1 program through our ShopforT1.com platform
we ended up with thousands of people asking us who we would recommend for cabling, wiring, and
PBX system installation. The fact is, we got tired of sending these customers to their local
yellow pages. We decided that, with a little bit of research and money, we build a network of
VARs that we could rank based upon user feedback and thereby provide valuable information to our T1 clients."
Patrick Oborn, CIO and chief technical architect, added "The VAR Network.com idea is not new.
Many other companies have attempted to gather VAR information and create searchable platforms,
but we are the first to do it at absolutely no cost to the VAR (the advertiser). The VARs
in our system only pay a nominal 5% commission if and only if they successfully complete a
sale. That eliminates all of the risk from our VARs and creates a winning business model."
The main launch of the VAR Network.com web site is currently scheduled for June 7, 2006,
at which time the public will be able to search for VARs in their local area. In order
for a VAR to show up in the search results, they must first register with the VAR Network
and create a service and coverage area profile. The process currently takes just under
5 minutes on average to complete.
VAR Network.com currently specializes in lead generation for people looking for
network equipment, including
AstroCom PowerLink Pro,
and telephone systems (regular PBX, ipPBX, and VoIP) including
Applied Voice Technology (AVT),
Computer Talk Technology,
Creative Integrated Systems,
