MOSCOW AND ST. LOUIS ⎯ Feb 5, 2019 ⎯ PJSC VimpelCom, operating under the Beeline brand, today announced a new digital IT modernization project in partnership with Amdocs (NASDAQ: DOX), a leading provider of software and services to communications and media companies.
The new IT-solution will upgrade Beeline Russia’s Digital Business Systems and its surrounding environment. Combined with Beeline’s advanced big data capabilities, the upgraded technology will provide its customers with a more personalized experience of Beeline’s digital services, from self-care management of their accounts to completely new bundles for telco and non-telco products.
Digitizing the core will allow Beeline Russia to reduce time-to-market and improve business agility and the customer experience. As part of the deal, Amdocs and Beeline have signed a multi-year managed services agreement.
Vasyl Latsanych, VimpelCom’s CEO commented:
“The future of telecoms is moving to real-time, personalized offers with an aim towards bringing those offers more in line with our customers’ needs. Digitizing the core will allow us to launch and modify our products faster, satisfying individual customer needs. Not only that, but we will be able to go beyond the usual minutes, megabytes, and SMS to offer services like airline miles, liters of gas and other non-telecom products.”
