Further, SOTELLIT does not make editorial or managerial decisions concerning content.

Adviser Quality Assurance and Call Answering Compliance System:

At SOTELLIT.COM we understand the need for on-going due diligence in order provide the best possible experience for both clients and advisers. To this end we have developed an exclusive and proprietary missed call module. Our missed call module tracks all calls connected through the SOTELLIT.COM system and penelizes any advsier that misses the call. The SOTELLIT.COM missed call system is unique in the fact that we do not remove advisers that miss calls nor do we set the adviser's account to inactive status. Instead we have devloped a state of the art system that places the missed call into a 160 hour queue. Each missed call will require 160 hours of logged on time with call status ON in order to be removed from the missed call queue. During this time the adviser's profit percentage will be reduced 10% for each missed call. The SOTELLIT.COM missed call system is Trademarked. Contact us for further details.
