  • Strategy to Maximize Profits

Our History
The Luciano Group originated from Tom Luciano’s one-man consulting firm in 2003.  Founded as International Telecommunications Strategies and Solutions (“INTTSS”), Tom worked with some of the top-tier telecommunications companies in the world.  It wasn’t long before he needed help managing the volume of client requests, creating the need to expand the number of experienced executives in his group.  GW Tracker Servce was launched in 2006 as the premium wholesale tracking product. The service provides market tracking and benchmark data in minutes, revenue, market share, route level pricing, gross margin, and four different network metrics (ASR, ALOC. NER, and ABR).  In 2012, there are 18 major global wholesale carriers as members and collectively they represent 80% of all international wholesale minutes sold in the world.

In 2009, The Luciano Group created its Mobile Commerce division under David W. Schropfer.  This division quickly grew to become the largest divion in our consulting business, serving some of strongest emerging companies in this sector.  In 2011, GV Tracker Service was launched to track the growth rates of all international minutes sold to over 230 countries and territories.  The eight charter members of GV Tracker Service represent 30% of all paid international voice minutes sold in the world.  Both GWTracker and GV Tracker Service provide on-line access to 24 months of historical data so members can quickly create graphic charts on any tracked category for either service.

Today, The Luciano Group offers an extensive array of products and services to some of the biggest clients in the world, including the unique GW Tracker product, and we are growing.
