Recognizing its expertise in electronic billing standards and joint customer needs, many major telecom companies have selected Asentinel (News - Alert), a technology-centric Telecom Expense Management company.
Asentinel is a Telecom Expense Management company that enables total telecom control by combining its technology-centric TEM software with Managed Services or Outsourcing solutions.
Asentinel’s success in the market has generated the attention of telecom providers as well, although the company’s customers are large and medium size enterprises in need of comprehensive TEM solutions and services. To help to develop new EDI (electronic data interface) billing systems that will continue to provide data that is sufficient to audit back to the carrier’s contracted rates, dozens of carriers, including industry giant AT&T (News - Alert), have sought out Asentinel software.
“Since our inception, Asentinel has been working on our customer’s behalf to enhance their carrier’s billing capabilities. The goal of our solution and the patents surrounding our technology has always been to capture the most granular billing detail and audit these charges back to the customer’s contractual rates. This has created an ongoing demand to make billing system enhancements as carriers deliver new products and services,” said Jason Fisher, Chief Software Architect for Asentinel.
Carriers know that Asentinel is up-to-date on their customer needs and expectations, and its patented software creates a demand for a high level of detail in the invoices to be able to validate the invoice charges, Asentinel claims that carriers like AT&T have sought out the company as they begin the development of next generation billing systems.
In May 2010, the company signed a strategic partner agreement with Vitek (Belgium), CommSouth (India), Intersel (Mexico) and n3k Informatik (Germany). Under the agreements, the new partners will use Asentinel 7.0 as the driving technology to deliver telecom expense management (TEM) and budgeting software services to their customers. Asentinel 7.0 is a powerful Web-based software tool that simplifies and streamlines management of the TEM lifecycle for wireline, wireless, invoices, orders, data and equipment assets.
