Comverse Introduces Converged Billing Solution

Monday 8 December 2003 08:10 CET | News

Comverse has announced the availability of a comprehensive converged billing system that offers real-time billing for voice and data services for both prepaid and post-paid subscribers.

Todays current prepaid and post-paid billing systems are typically separate and based on different technologies. As new services are introduced, new forms of billing are required to maximize and secure revenues. In todays billing framework, this often requires costly and time-consuming parallel enhancements to both the pre- and post-paid systems. By deploying the Comverse converged billing solution, carriers can drive increased usage of voice and data services by offering flexible real-time billing for these emerging applications, combining the best of todays prepaid and post-paid systems. This integrated solution offers a consistent framework for billing new and emerging voice and data services and offers powerful personalization options for carriers and their end-users. Operators can now improve efficiency and reduce service costs by consolidating customer care centers and enabling end-users to benefit from informed spending and real-time personal account management. The Comverse converged billing solution delivers real-time rating and charging, offers instant access to subscriber usage information, and offers a wealth of features to support usage bonuses and other promotions. With the Comverse solution, all end-users (both prepaid and post-paid) are rated in real-time for both voice and data usage. Unlike near real-time systems, the real-time nature of the Comverse converged billing solution can help carriers increase revenue assurance and reduce revenue risk by authorizing all calls and by applying credit limits to all subscribers, both in real-time.
