VAR Begins Beta Test
by Michelle Edwards

May 30, 2006 - Telarus, Inc. today announced the beta launch of, 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 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 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 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.
