ITEXPO Exhibitor Sandy Beaches Software Welcomes Landstar Telecom to its Growing Clientele

By Greg Tavarez October 10, 2023

E-commerce sales via subscriptions surpassed $23 billion in the U.S. in 2020, according to a Statista report. That number highlights how businesses have shifted (and still are shifting) toward online transactions and subscription services.

With that said, complexities do pop up, such as various pricing models and needs for customizable invoicing. To ease the complexities are billing platform solutions. These robust systems generally streamline the invoicing and payment processes, ensure accurate and timely billing for products and services. They foster transparency and trust between businesses and their clients.

Sandy Beaches Software (SBS) is a company that provides efficient, reliable and affordable billing solutions for telecom companies. SBS ensures that software invoices are always in compliance with taxing authorities, including the assurance that clients aren’t overpaying for telecom taxes. They also provide complimentary tax software integration, free upgrades, unlimited customer support, no onboarding fees or monthly minimums and 12 hours of free live training annually.

SBS has helped companies grow, remain compliant, and come out profitable for over 30 years. Now, SBS announced that Landstar Telecom is part of its growing client base.

Landstar provides cloud-based communication solutions for businesses. They offer a fully scalable business phone system that provides 100% more uptime, 130 user-friendly features and eliminates what they call “outrageous” phone bills that come with traditional phone lines. Their services include VoIP phone systems, IT support and security solutions.

Thomas Luksa, Landstar founder and CEO, was introduced to SBS and its president, Jeff Lytle, during a panel session at ITEXPO (News - Alert) many years ago. The two talked after the session, and a connection was made between the two companies, which eventually built into the two working together.

“Conferences like ITEXPO are great for sharing information and making us all better. I didn’t expect to land an account by helping out in that session, but it was a nice outcome of sharing my knowledge and experience with others,” said Jeff Lytle, founder of Sandy Beaches Software (News - Alert). “We believe that the tools and support that we provide will enable Landstar to continue to grow their business and remain profitable and complaint.

Landstar also chose SBS’ IntegriBill product as their billing platform solution. 

IntegriBill is a billing and customer care software that allows telecommunications companies with multiple carriers, products and switch types to produce one convergent invoice for clients. It ensures that software invoices are always in compliance with taxing authorities, including the assurance that clients aren’t overpaying for telecom taxes.

“When we made the decision to change to SBS it was because of their experience and extensive knowledge about compliance and telecommunications taxation,” said Luksa. “Most billing companies don’t help their clients in those key areas. SBS is great about working in tandem with compliance and taxation companies to generate the data needed for filing, as well as producing compliant invoices - all for a reasonable price. Telecom specific billing is complicated on its own, but it does not have to be.”

The transition from an existing billing engine to a new one is not an easy one, though. There are inherent challenges, particularly when it involves the migration of all historical data while ensuring accuracy.

The team at Sandy Beaches Software facilitated a seamless migration process for Landstar. They maintained continuous communication with Landstar throughout each phase of the migration, ensuring alignment and collaboration.

“The attention to detail that Jeff Lytle and his team provided during onboarding, gave us the utmost confidence that they are up to the task and earned our trust to build a long relationship together,” said Luksa.

Sandy Beaches Software is an exhibitor of ITEXPO 2024. For the latest in business communications and technology tools, solutions, and strategies that are re-shaping how businesses operate and communicate, join the conversation at ITEXPO 2024, taking place in Ft.
