TrustedTPV Announces Five Years and Ten Million Verifications

Energy Industry's Leading Third Party Verification Provider Celebrates Five Years of Providing the Highest Quality TPV Services

Severna Park, MD - Wednesday, October 15th, 2014 - TrustedTPV, the premier provider of third party verification services, announced today that it had verified over 10 million transactions, most of them from the energy industry. The achievement is especially notable because TrustedTPV is also celebrating just its fifth anniversary.

"USG&E has been a Trusted client for over three years." said Robert Forster, Sales Operations Manager at U.S. Gas & Electric, Inc. "One of the best things about working with Trusted is their team of account managers. They know how to interpret what we're looking for and make sure our requests are handled quickly and correctly. TrustedTPV's entire team is a pleasure to work with and is certainly one of their most important assets."

Over the last five years, TrustedTPV has become known as the industry's verification innovator. Products like TPVAlert allow for customized notification options.

Another industry innovation is the offering of a variety of QA options for Trusted TPV's automated service. Full audio review and hybrid review are just two options in addition to Trusted's standard offering.

"TrustedTPV serves a wide variety of customers whose needs can vary greatly. We pride ourselves on being able to deliver the right solution for every client" said Larry Leikin, EVP Sales at TrustedTPV.

Realtime Results Widens TPV Integration Partnerships with TrustedTPV

Open Door, the leading door-to-door mobile sales application, is expanding its TPV partnerships through a new system integration with TrustedTPV, one of North America's leading providers of third-party verification (TPV) services.

The two companies have partnered to connect the power of Realtime's mobile sales software directly with the proven TPV services of TrustedTPV. The integration of the two systems opens the door to a streamlined sales process for energy marketers that reduces overall call times and expenses. Now field sales reps can submit TPV requests electronically from the field directly to the back-office teams at TrustedTPV.

"This partnerships empowers an entirely different approach to TPV," explains Tom Brockhaus, Realtime Results VP. "Normally, a field sales rep generates a sale and captures the information on a paper order form. Then the field rep has to make a call to a TPV agent to complete the order. It required a complicated paper trail and kept the sales rep tied up at the customer’s home until the order was completed."

"Using Open Door and TrustedTPV, orders are submitted electronically and served up directly to a TrustedTPV rep who processes the order and then places a short call to the customer to complete the process. As a result, sales reps spend less time at the home and the order information is captured with fewer errors. The process also reduces the length of the TPV call, generating savings for energy marketers."

"Realtime Results delivers critical information to our clients," explains Larry Leikin, VP Sales at TrustedTPV, "It is fully integrated into the Trusted platform allowing our clients to save time and money. The combination of TrustedTPV and Realtime Results will be a game changer in the industry."

Realtime's Open Door solution is changing the rules for how energy field sales are managed. Beyond altering the TPV process, Open Door also lets energy marketers track and monitor their field sales teams through GPS tracking. Built-in reporting also gives them real-time insight into where and when sales occur and sales rep performance.

"By partnering with TrustedTPV, we're changing the rules for energy marketers," explains Brockhaus. "We're saving them money, giving them more control over the process and helping to increase sales."

When TrustedTPV’s operators pick up the phone, they already have all of the customer’s important account information, resulting in a much quicker and more pleasant verification for the customer.

TrustedTPV™ Announces 2nd Verification Call Center Automatic Call Routing for Energy Marketers is an Industry First

Severna Park MD – September 19th, 2012 – TrustedTPV, the premiere provider of third party verification services, today announced that its second live operator TPV site is setup and taking calls. The Pennsylvania call center is exactly 1000 miles away from TrustedTPV’s current facility in central Florida.

TrustedTPV’s live operator verification utilizes an architecture that is unique in the industry. All calls originate in our fully redundant technology center in upstate New York. All scripts, databases, recordings and other data originate there and then are sent to one of the call centers. Under normal circumstances, calls are shared equally between the two sites but we can alter that mix based on performance and we can do so on a client by client basis. Most importantly, in the highly unlikely event that one call center cannot accept calls, 100% of all verification traffic is automatically routed to the other center until the issue is resolved.

The result is a live operator TPV platform that gives energy marketers the maximum amount of redundancy, while still providing a cost effective solution. Two call centers in two different states utilizing two different networks; both processing the same verifications.

“TrustedTPV was built on the premise of having the best technology, and the best prices, in the industry” said Larry Leikin, Vice President, Sales for TrustedTPV“ With the addition of our second call center, we look forward to bringing the most advanced solution to the live operator side of our business”

“There is only one thing that could make TrustedTPV’s live operator verification service better” said Ilan Weizman, Director of Marketing at HIKO Energy. “and that would be the added redundancy that a second call center would provide”

“TrustedTPV has always been known for their excellent customer service” said Bill Siveter, President & CEO of Platinum Advertising. “That is especially important when it comes to door to door sales. In my opinion, TrustedTPV provides the best live operator verification in the business”.

The Most Trusted Company in Third Party Verification Takes On A New Name

Severna Park, MD – October, 24 2011 – Sales Verification, one of the leading providers of third party verification services, has changed its name to TrustedTPV. “Nothing else is changing at the company” said Larry Leikin, VP Sales. “The same people who bring you the highest level of live operator and automated third party verification will continue to continue to do so, but we think the new name better reflects our standing in the industry”

We had more than a decade’s worth of experience learning how to give customers what they need at the lowest possible cost.”

“TrustedTPV is everything the name implies,” said Sam Asher, who, as partner and CTO, heads up the company’s IT department. “The service may look routine, but there’s a deep infrastructure underlying it - of equipment, telecom services, and personnel. It takes a lot of expertise to reliably verify, record and store as many transactions as we do.”

Larry Leikin added, “TrustedTPV provides both automated and live operator third party verification services because we want to be a one stop shop for every type of provider and marketer. Many clients actually use both live and automated, depending on their specific needs and the regulatory requirements of the states where they are selling. Using a fully redundant IVR in secured facilities combined with two live operator call centers in two states gives our energy and telecom clients the redundancy and uptime they need to keep selling.”

“I’ve been working with Larry Leikin and his team for over 15 years,” said Jeff Bornstein, Chairman of Great American Power. “Over that time, we’ve referred many clients to Larry and TrustedTPV because we know they’ll be happy and taken care of. TrustedTPV is the perfect name for the company – You need someone you can trust with your third party verification work and they are a trusted partner.
