360connect allows customers to manage their VoIP-related interactions with 360networks, directly from their desktop. Customers will soon have the option of integrating internal applications directly into 360networks' ordering and provisioning services via an application programming interface (API). Utilities include reserving and activating telephone numbers, placing directory listings orders, reviewing inventory, submitting and monitoring trouble tickets, and managing local number portability (LNP) requests, according to a release.
"We are constantly looking for ways to improve our customers' experience," said Nick Reifschneider, VoIP product director for 360networks. "360connect makes it easier than ever to do business with 360networks, streamlining administrative functions while still providing the responsive service our customers have come to expect."
360networks also provides VoIP customers with a wide range of wholesale services to include IP Transit, Private Line, and Ethernet services, all from a single source.
“We appreciate 360networks' high quality service with a personal touch," said Megan Outcalt, LNP/provisioning manager for JAB Broadband. "We are quite pleased with the simplicity 360connect provides; but, we know we can always get live support when we need it."
