At Peerless Network, we pride ourselves on being a proven global disruptor in the telecom industry – and 2019 was a pivotal year for us with the rapid expansion of our cutting-edge portfolio of products, services and availability. Over the past 12 months, we further positioned the company for aggressive growth on a global scale through a series of announcements that were driven by our dedication to deliver superior customer service and unbeatable value. 

Peerless Portal: Provisioning and processing made simple

Our drive to offer our channel partners with the very best support in the industry led us to develop the Peerless Portal, a platform that enables true self-service for SIP trunking services, resulting in fast installations and real-time provisioning. The platform is a fully-automated online self-provisioning portal for enterprise customers and channel agents to easily purchase and manage SIP trunking channels, telephone numbers, local and domestic/international long distance, toll-free services and call termination for multiple locations from one advanced system. All products and services can be provisioned directly on customers’ premises and via mobile devices. The Peerless Portal provides high-voice quality services by utilizing Peerless Network’s owned and operated redundant and reliable backbone network.

Peerless CallTrue: Leading the industry with protection against unwanted robocalls

Utilizing advanced SHAKEN/STIR technology from Ribbon Communications Inc., Peerless launched Peerless CallTrue to provide enterprises with advanced protection against unwanted robo and nuisance calls. Peerless CallTrue goes beyond the FCC’s mandate to give customers additional technological means to fight robocalls by providing simple recorded messaging that asks callers to enter commands to verify the caller is human. With the elimination of these unwanted calls, Peerless customers’ are able to optimize their customer service and sales representatives’ time, as well as ensure inbound call data is not skewed by spam calls.

Peerless Cloud PBX: Making voice services more affordable with simpler provisioning

Over the summer, the company launched Peerless Cloud PBX, a UCaaS model that affords simplicity for business operations of any size with zero-touch provisioning and easy customization via the Peerless Portal. The new services provide enterprises with the ability to easily manage telephone numbers, services, routing, configuration and inventory over a cloud-based IP network via one system.. The network runs on Peerless’ own redundant, low latency, high-quality voice, reliable network infrastructure and technologies, offsetting third-party costs and providing the most competitive market rates in the industry without the need for complicated and expensive equipment.

Application to Person Enterprise (A2P) Messaging: Creating an endless number of use cases

In the very latest news, Peerless introduced the much-anticipated Application to Person Enterprise Messaging (A2P) service, which provides end-to-end SMS/MMS one-way and two-way messaging for long-codes and toll-free numbers. Through the addition of the Peerless A2P offering, customers can now meet all of their communication needs directly through Peerless and no longer require A2P messaging services from 3rd party providers. The company is able to support an endless number of use cases such as two-way interactive conversations, marketing campaigns, transactional alerts, One-Time-Password and Multi-Factor-Authentication, Opt-in/Opt-out Management and message broadcasting.

Partnership with Telinta: Helping VoIP providers grow their business

Forming partnerships with like-minded companies is crucial in this industry, and that’s why we joined Telinta to help our mutual customers grow their VoIP business. VoIP service providers can now easily use Peerless Network’s high-quality DID service and VoIP termination services together with Telinta’s cloud-based Switching and Billing solutions. 

International Expansion: Providing U.K. customers with access to the Peerless Network’s industry-leading service portfolio

Driven by our continued mission to make the world local and to best serve our customers, Peerless expanded our services into the United Kingdom, providing high-quality, low latency and simple order provision of international numbers. Customers in the U.K. can easily purchase U.S. phone numbers and turn up service quickly via the Peerless Portal. Peerless Network then routes those numbers in the U.K. over its own reliable and redundant backbone network in the U.S. with flexible routing choices, all without the expense of additional interconnections. This new service gives U.K. customers autonomy to manage telephone numbers, services and billing with full visibility to real-time stats. The result is an increased time-to-revenue speed via a reliable network that scales efficiencies and lowers costs at market-driven rates with unrivaled customer service. 

Channel Growth: Establishing a Master Agent Agreement with Sandler Partners

In Q3, Peerless announced a Master Agent agreement with Sandler Partners, America’s fastest growing distributor of Connectivity and Cloud Services. The partnership provides more than 7,000 Sandler Partners sales agents with access to Peerless’ extensive and cutting-edge portfolio of high-quality voice products, services and platforms to serve their SMB and enterprise clients. The announcement comes just months after the appointment of Ryan Patterson as Vice President of Channel Sales for Peerless Network with responsibilities that include the further strengthening of the company’s growing national channel program.

Looking onward to a new decade

As we move forward, Peerless will continue to expand our innovative suite of high-quality voice products, services and markets we serve. Stay tuned in the new year for future announcements as Peerless continues to simplify how networks, devices and people connect.
