In a move to improve its double-play credentials at the retail level, EchoStar Communications agreed to embed GetConnected's transaction processing platform for the sale of digital services into EchoStar's reseller portal. The partnership allows resellers of EchoStar's Dish Network, as well as the company's channel partners, to determine if there are any local DSL providers who package their Internet access services with EchoStar's DBS TV.
By implementing GetConnected's platform, the EchoStar reseller portal now enables Dish Network retailers to go online and find out if a customer can also receive DSL service from various providers.
With the GetConnected platform providing end-to-end order management, qualified customers are offered the best DSL service in their particular market.
Best Buy, AOL, Circuit City, Dell, and Radio Shack also use GetConnected to sell video, voice, data and entertainment services.
