10/27/2004 - NMS Communications (NASDAQ: NMSS), the leading provider of technologies and solutions for enhanced services and efficient networks, and global telecom and IP communications projects supplier Opencode announced that GloBul, one of the leading mobile operators in the rapidly expanding Eastern European region, has launched a new customer support and self-service center built by Opencode and based on NMS' Open AccessTM products.
With more than 1.3 million subscribers already and demand soaring for new services, especially data services like SMS, MMS, GPRS, and Internet content, GloBul had several objectives:
At the same time, GloBul wanted to reduce operating expenses, while ensuring that the solution they chose integrated easily with their existing network and operations, administration and management systems. Opencode integrated NMS' Linux-based Open Access platform into GloBul's network, adding a full range of advanced billing capabilities. The solution has already proven itself by helping GloBul achieve every one of its objectives within a few months. NMS' highly scalable, flexible Open Access platform is the basis for both the customer support and self-provisioning systems, providing easy access and self-service for a comfortable and efficient customer experience.
"We're experiencing tremendous subscriber growth, with both consumer and business customers. At the same time, our existing customers want more services," said Stefan Kolev, Switching & Services Director, GloBul. "NMS and Opencode have built a highly reliable customer service and self-provisioning system with the flexibility that allows us to offer innovative communications services and packages that fit different segments of our base. And it's a system that works with our existing network and can easily scale to meet coming requirements. As a result, we're saving money, increasing our revenue, and providing a better quality of customer service."
"By offering next-gen services, along with a full range of billing options, GloBul is proving itself an innovator and leader in mobile communications in the high-growth Central Europe region," said Eliezer Cohen, General Manager, Opencode.
