Nuevatel (Viva) Chooses Comverse ONE to Enhance Its Market Offerings in Bolivia


Comverse Expands Success at Viva With BSS Upgrade for Converged Rating and Charging


WAKEFIELD, Mass., Sept. 16, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Comverse, a global leader in BSS, mobile Internet and value-added services, announced today that dynamic Bolivian telecommunications service provider Nuevatel, a key member of the Trilogy group, selected Comverse ONE® Billing & Active Customer Management™ for converged rating and charging to enhance its Viva market offering, while achieving significant OPEX reduction.


This selection by Nuevatel is part of a global framework agreement that will see Comverse ONE advantages extended to other service providers in the Trilogy group.


“Billing has advanced far beyond its traditional role; its innovative capabilities now make it a vital springboard for revenue growth and service innovation. The advanced and converged services that we expect to launch with Comverse ONE will differentiate our offering and take quick advantage of a broad range of market opportunities as they arise,” said Wilson Saavedra, Vice President, IT at Nuevatel. “As our incumbent vendor, Comverse knows us well — and we knew their solution was the best choice for this major upgrade.”


Leveraging a consistent view of customers across any service, Comverse ONE’s real-time rating and charging capabilities can empower multi-play operators like Viva to deploy truly converged offerings that leverage targeted cross-product promotions. In addition to real-time customer management and faster time to market to better capture moments of opportunity, Comverse ONE can meaningfully lower total cost of operation by eliminating redundant systems.


“The capabilities and excellent converged user experience that distinguish true BSS convergence — together with OPEX savings — can have far-reaching business benefits for communication service providers (CSPs),” said Lionel Chmilewsky, Senior Vice President, Head of Customer Facing Group at Comverse. “The best compliment one can receive from a customer is to be invited back. Comverse ONE’s growing global success owes much to the many CSPs like Nuevatel who express their appreciation of the quality of our products and service by choosing us anew to be partners in their next phase of growth.”
