BANGALORE, INDIA – Subex Ltd, a leading global provider of operations and business support systems (OSS/BSS) announced today that it has been selected by Worldstream System and Services to implement its industry leading ROC Fraud Management and Revenue Assurance solutions for the Econet Group. Worldstream Systems & Services is the chosen project management and implementation partner for this and other large IT related projects within the Econet Group. This implementation by Subex will not only cover Econet’s mobile GSM and WCDMA services in Zimbabwe, where Econet has the dominant market share, but also their fixed line and mobile GSM and WCDMA operations in the Kingdom of Lesotho and in the mobile operation in Burundi.
Econet was looking for Fraud Management and Revenue Assurance products that could be centralized in order to improve efficiencies at operational level and to meet the need to optimise revenue and bottom line performance as the group grows the subscriber base in all their operations. Subex’s proven expertise in these two areas, coupled with its established experience in centralized implementations in the African region were factors that contributed to the final decision to appoint Subex as Econet’s partner in finalizing the deal. In addition, Subex’s ability to offer further modules and services over and above the current requirement to meet the long term road map for Econet, with an option to run the applications on a managed service model, were enough for Econet to make Subex their partner of choice.
“As the Econet Group continues to expand their operations, they were keen on implementing solutions that would meet best practice Fraud Management and Revenue Assurance requirements right from the word go. All the reference checks we made on Subex with their existing African customers were positive and thus Subex was the natural choice for us”, said Anthony Carter, CEO, Worldstream Systems & Services.
“We aim to be the partner of choice for telcos in every stage of operation. Helping a service provider like Econet expand their market is an honour for us. This ROC implementation at Econet is yet another major milestone in our journey”, said Sudeesh Yezhuvath, Chief Operating Officer, Subex Ltd.
