Windstream, Salestream Software serve up instant cloud pricing quotes for business, carrier customers

Windstream has taken another step forward with its channel partner program by offering immediate access to pricing quotes via a new Carrier API it created with its partner Salestream Software.

By leveraging Salestream's MasterStream platform in its Carrier API, customers can integrate Windstream's pricing engine directly into their back office system. Customers can retrieve pricing on demand while maintaining their current quote to cash workflow. 

"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," said John Nishimoto, VP of carrier business development for Windstream, in a release. "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."

Windstream's wholesale service provider customers that use the MasterStream software platform can get access to seamless quoting on the MasterStream platform for the products they offer wherever Windstream can provide service.

A big benefit that the MasterStream partnership will give Windstream is driving its cloud services to more customers.
