Global Capacity Launches Online Tariff Quote Tool

Global Capacity has launched Lattis Global, a proprietary, automated online tariff quoting system for the telecom industry.

Officials with Global Capacity said that Lattis Global builds on the foundation of Lattis, which has been providing tariff pricing and quoting solutions to the U.S. market for over 20 years.

Company officials said that Lattis Global provides customers with automated, real time access to Global Capacity's extensive database of global telecommunication locations, suppliers and pricing data, providing the capability to generate accurate, up-to-date price quotes based on telecommunications tariffs for Leased Line and Ethernet services.

According to company officials, Lattis Global contains nearly 2,000 distinct tariffs from 43 carriers in 35 countries. The system also contains over 10 million discrete points of geographic and telecommunication location data, a critical component in establishing a validated address, which is a fundamental element of calculating an accurate tariff quote.

"Having an accurate understanding of tariff rates is the foundation of access pricing in the global market," said Patrick Shutt, CEO of Global Capacity, in a statement.

Shutt said that quickly and accurately calculating the accurate tariff rate allows organizations to correctly apply negotiated discounts, enabling them to realize the benefit of specific rates they have negotiated with preferred suppliers.

He said that Lattis Global provides customers a one-stop shop for accurate tariff pricing in 35 countries around the world, eliminating the need for multiple systems and cumbersome manual processes.

“Lattis Global helps reduce back office costs for customers, while automating and improving the accuracy and efficiency of the quoting process, enabling correct market pricing," said Shutt.

Global Capacity is a telecommunications information and logistics company that improves the efficiency and reduces the cost of access networks globally.

Recently, Global Capacity announced that it has completed the sale of substantially all of its assets to GC Pivotal, LLC, an affiliate company of the leading investment firm Pivotal Group.

With this transaction now complete, the company moves forward as a privately-held company with a strong balance sheet and no debt. GC Pivotal, LLC will go to market as Global Capacity, offering the same innovative solutions that customers have come to expect.
