We’re considering switching to ClearlyIP.com from our current vendor, Flowroute. The switch is motivated purely by the cost savings Clearly is able to provide via their module for dynamic E911 locationing in FreePBX.
Flowroute charges $0.50/DID (free port-in) and $1.39/E911, and for example, a school with 50 class rooms requires at least 50 DIDs for emergency locationing / callback. However, with Clearly, you apparently only need 2 DIDs and then their module automatically appends extension lookup code to the outgoing CID, then their trunking service checks this code and sets the correct E911 location profile on the fly! As a result, they only charge $0.50/E911, which is awesome.
Can anyone speak to any shortcomings or issues I wouldn’t have thought of?
This seems like a no-brainer, are there any other vendors/competitors out there doing the same thing? I’d like some others to compare Clearly to, but haven’t found any other wholesalers which are providing this dynamic lookup.
