Billing


The telecom end customer’s behavior has been constantly evolving right from the day the telecom services were introduced. Now, post two decades, there expectation has grown and they are demanding more for less. This is primarily due to heightened competition and emergence of new telecom trends. As a result, CSPs are finding it difficult to provide superior customer value, keep updated with technological changes (Ex. Internet of things) and at the same time, maintain revenue growth and market share.

When translated to their IT systems, they are overwhelmed by change in legacy stack built over time. Billing systems, is a case in point, where they are siloed and inundated by internal backlogs such as lack of inventory accountability, misaligned incentives, lack of seamless integration and cumbersome processes. This affects effective management of billing operations and revenue assurance. These factors significantly drive up the operational cost which in turn affects bottom line.
