LITTLE ROCK, Ark., June 18, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Windstream Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq:WIN) announced today that Windstream and Salestream Software, the provider of MasterStream, have joined efforts to offer instant access to pricing quotes for their mutual telecom clients via Windstream's new Carrier API.
"MasterStream's support for our new Windstream Carrier API is significant for many reasons," according to Windstream's John Nishimoto, Vice President of Carrier Business Development. "MasterStream enables our carrier customer community to obtain Windstream price quotes instantly and without the IT expenditure and delays normally associated with new API integrations. By leveraging Salestream as an enablement partner Windstream is able to reduce API onboarding cycles internally, and accelerate broader adoption of our Carrier API and Customer Portal."
The new Carrier API allows customers to integrate Windstream's pricing engine directly into their back office. Those customers retrieve pricing on demand while maintaining their current quote to cash workflow. Windstream's carrier customers that utilize the MasterStream software platform can now experience seamless quoting on the MasterStream platform for the products they offer wherever Windstream can provide service. As a result of the ongoing MasterStream partnership, many Windstream customers will benefit from their cloud solution.
"We have already implemented Windstream's new API on behalf of many of our mutual clients and the feedback has been very positive." said Jeff Fraser, President of Salestream Software. "Our customers know that automation is critical to efficiency in such a competitive space, so we were very motivated to enhance MasterStream with Windstream's new API capabilities," Fraser added.
