COLOTRAQ, a global sourcing advisory firm and master agency for data center infrastructure (DCI) services, has released to the general public its cloud-based software for the sourcing of data center infrastructure services named DCITRAQ.
After nearly two years in development, COLOTRAQ goes live with this software for sourcing data center infrastructure services such as colocation, cloud, managed hosting and related network services from over 400 vendors worldwide.
The custom developed proprietary software would enable agents and clients to dynamically research, compare and purchase colocation, managed hosting and cloud services through COLOTRAQ’s network of over 400 service providers in practically every market worldwide. This includes over 200 enterprise cloud providers and access to more than 3,000 colocation/managed hosting facilities around the globe.
Beyond its “user friendly” exterior, DCITRAQ would incorporate a complex algorithm that matches a client’s project requirements to the offerings and capabilities that vendors have specified in the system. A user will then be able to launch a comparison chart that will highlight the matching vendors’ capabilities and offerings to further streamline and simplify the sourcing process.
“As an additional feature of educating and empowering our clients on the various service offerings of our vendors, the software will have a fully integrated Center of Intelligence (COI),” said Lou Peccoralo, COO of COLOTRAQ. “This will allow clients and agents to view all sorts of content such as sales and marketing collateral, white papers, events, promotions among other content that our vendors upload.”
DCITRAQ is designed to permit COLOTRAQ’s agent partners the ability to private brand it as their own and push it down channel to their sub-agents as well as their clients. The software will also have comprehensive data mining and reporting capabilities that will allow users to see all of their project history, all communications on a particular deal, historical revenue and agent commission information through full integration with COLOTRAQ’s cloud based accounting platform, and an array of real-time metrics.
