Global Wholesale Carrier Product Ratings Down, Reveals ATLANTIC-ACM Study

May 21, 2013

Overall, customer satisfaction with global wholesale products declines year-over-year, generating opportunities for providers with proactive sales reps to capture share from passive providers

Strategy and research consultancy ATLANTIC-ACM announced today the general availability of the 2013 edition of its Global Wholesale Report Card. Based on more than 1,400 individual carrier evaluations, this year’s study compiles tends, drivers and conclusions about the global long haul wholesale landscape to deliver a thorough picture of market leaders and factors shaping the industry.

“Price sensitivity among global wholesale buyers is exacerbated by ongoing uncertainty in the global economy,” said ATLANTIC-ACM CEO, Dr. Judy Reed Smith. “These wholesale customers were less satisfied with pricing for seven of the 10 major products, driving down overall product satisfaction.”
