Redknee's Turnkey Converged Billing Platform (TCB) Supports EMEA Group Operator
By Calvin Azuri
Redknee (News - Alert) is a global provider of innovative communication software products, solutions and services. Recently it announced that it is supporting a group operator in EMEA to lessen its OPEX (News - Alert). This is possible by combining the customer care and billing capabilities of its multiple properties onto one centralized platform. Redknee has entered into a new contract where it manages the four properties of its group operator in support of the operator's aggressive growth strategy to facilitate rapid expansion across the region. To grow their businesses in the competitive markets, Redknee's Turnkey Converged Billing platform (TCB) held up group operators in the APAC and Americas regions.
With Redknee's TCB platform, operators can recognize the advantages of a fully converged real-time billing and customer care platform. Despite the payment type or access technology, all subscribers can be managed on one united platform, permitting operators to quickly launch targeted promotions and services and deliver an improved subscriber experience.
Redknee's cloud-based solution allows operators to launch operations into new markets and still be supported by one platform thereby extending the advantages of a converged platform. From the view point of group operations, operators can standardize processes, have a general idea of the response of different markets to services and can impose a tight control over costs.
Lucas Skoczkowski (News - Alert), Redknee's CEO, said that 'We are pleased to be supporting another group operator to drive customer growth and profitability at all of its properties. This latest deployment of our cloud-based solutions reiterates Redknee's successful strategy to provide scalable products that support the performance requirements of high tier and group services operators. At Redknee, we are continuing our investment in solutions that serve the high growth markets of Africa, the Middle East and Asia Pacific, along with the Tier-1 markets of the Americas, Europe and Australia, to support the success of our customers and the execution of our growth strategy.'
Redknee was founded in 1999. The revenue generating solutions of Redknee provide advanced converged billing, rating, charging and policy for voice, messaging and new generation data services to over 70 network operators in over 50 countries. The wholly-owned operating subsidiary Redknee Inc. and its various subsidiaries come under Redknee Solutions Inc.
