TORONTO, ON, — Redknee Solutions Inc., a leading provider of business-critical billing and charging software and solutions for communications service providers (CSPs), is pleased to announce that an acquired customer in EMEA has signed a multi-million dollar contract for Redknee’s converged billing and charging solution. With this deal, Redknee’s converged billing and charging solution will support the operator to cater to the rising demand for value-added and 4G LTE services. Analysys Mason recently reported that mobile broadband continues to drive investment in new systems across all regions and market types, leading to the convergent billing sector achieving 22 percent growth from 2011 to 2012.
Redknee is supporting the EMEA operator to provide differentiated services and an advanced customer experience through value-added data services, personalized offers, new pricing and tariff options, real-time notifications, and customer self-care. With Redknee’s solution, the operator is able to build its competitive advantage, deliver an enhanced subscriber experience and accelerate its growth strategy. Available on-premise, cloud-based and as a Software-as-a-Service offering, Redknee provides a complete monetization and subscriber management solution to more than 200 service providers, including some of the largest Tier 1 operators in the world.
Justin van der Lande, Programme Head for Revenue Management at Analysys Mason, commented: “LTE roll-out is often used as an opportunity to refresh revenue management systems due to the need to better monetize data and support offers such as family plans, tiered pricing and content or application based quality of experience. These monetization drivers coupled with the need to reduce costs led to the convergent billing and customer care segments experiencing the fastest growth within the BSS market in the past 12 months.”
Lucas Skoczkowski, CEO at Redknee, commented: “This multi-million dollar contract with this acquired customer and associated group operator reinforces Redknee’s capability and expertise to support our communications service provider customers with a comprehensive portfolio of billing, charging, policy and customer care solutions. Redknee is committed to its customers and will continue to invest in our market-leading real-time converged billing and charging solution to support their growth strategies.”
