OneLink's TeleSmart service is already being sold by telecomservice providers such as US West and Cincinnati Bell. Thecarriers collect the call data, send it to OneLink forprocessing, and OneLink provides the customer with 70 to 100preformatted call-detail reports on a weekly or monthlybasis. Businesses can receive tables, maps, graphs, andcharts about where calls originate, including groupings byarea codes or phone numbers, ZIP codes, call length, time ofday, and more. The reports are available via the Web,diskette, or paper.
Midwest Eye Care PC, in Omaha, Neb., which pays about $225 amonth per location for the service, found that it wasunderstaffed and underequipped to handle the 325 to 700daily calls it receives.
