ThinQ's toll-free LCR platform wins awardJuly 18, 2017, RALEIGH: thinQ announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has awarded their Toll-Free Least Cost Routing (LCR) platform a 2017 Communications Solutions Products of the Year Award.

For years, providers have been charging a flat rate above and beyond the actual cost of each toll-free call. Now, with thinQ’s Toll-Free LCR, call centers and enterprise companies can connect to and manage multiple carriers based on criteria such as calling area, call quality, time-of-day etc.—all within a single intuitive platform.

With thinQ’s automated LCR engine continuously analyzing and optimizing call routing across five major tier-one carriers, thinQ partners always receive the best pricing within their selected parameters, enabling savings of 50% or more on inbound toll-free calls.

“We are honored to receive this recognition from TMC,” said thinQ president Michael Tindall. “When we set out to build the world’s first and only Toll-Free LCR over a year ago, many people thought it was impossible. Fortunately, this only served as motivation for my talented team of engineers. Now, after thousands of hours of development and a highly-successful launch, people are going crazy about it.”

To improve performance even further, thinQ has also built a disaster recovery solution within the platform, preventing partners from experiencing embarrassing and costly downtime in the event of a carrier outage.

“Toll-Free LCR is truly an innovative product and is amongst the best solutions brought to market in the past twelve months that facilitates business-transforming voice communications.”

“Congratulations to thinQ for being honored with a Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “Toll-Free LCR is truly an innovative product and is amongst the best solutions brought to market in the past twelve months that facilitates business-transforming voice communications. I look forward to continued excellence from thinQ in 2018 and beyond.”
