"Best Technology" is kind of hard to measure. The number of IT "humans" a business employs is not hard to measure - especially if they're standing up in the front of a large auditorium.
Telarus attempted to have their agent partners measure their technological "bestness" by paying to bring their four IT staffers out to the annual Telarus Agent Expo in Las Vegas last month. During the portion of the program where Telarus outlines all their newest "technology" tools, Telarus executives Adam Edwards, Patrick Oborn and Andrew Morgan repeatedly had their four IT staffers stand up in the front row and take a bow.
I don't know how many other master agents have four IT guys on staff writing software but I can't remember ever being introduced to any like I was at the 2010 Telarus Agent Expo.
But judge for yourself. Click the video below as Telarus' executive staff share the technology advances they've brought to their agents over the past year.
(The first four minutes of this video is an overview of GeoQuote leading up to Adam discussing why Telarus launched CarrierQuoteShop.com. The CarrierQuoteShop.com part of the video is in the blog posting before this one if you want to watch it. If you've already seen it just scroll forward to 4:00 on this video for all the other technical roll-outs from the past year.)
You've got to hand it to Telarus. They do have a lot of cool technical stuff and they're not keeping secret about it.
