Tecnotree partners with one of the largest operators in the African market for a multi-phase Digital BSS Transformation project

Finland – 18 May 2020: Tecnotree, a global provider of business support systems for the telecom industry, today announced that a leading provider of mobile telecommunications services across Africa and the Middle East, has selected Tecnotree’s Digital BSS Transformation Suite 5 to be deployed in one of its largest operations in Africa.

The new purchase order, worth USD 3.35 million, for phase 1 of a multi-phase deployment extends Tecnotree’s long-term partnership with the customer who has one of the largest subscriber bases in Africa. This partnership showcases Tecnotree’s ability to support CSP’s with agile and operationally efficient solutions.

In the first phase, Tecnotree will deliver its Digital Convergent Billing System (DCBS) solution and its Digital Accelerator Platform (DAP) known as Tecnotree Surge. Both products are designed to support business goals and enhance revenues. These digital products will enable the operator to accelerate its digital transformation initiative by automating and digitizing billing processes and, in turn, improve the overall customer experience.

Tecnotree’s Surge (Digital Accelerator) is an open-source, containerised, cloud-native platform, designed and integrated with DevOps principles. It will provide the flexibility to undergo digital transformation in a phased manner whilst leveraging existing investments in legacy systems. This is done by enabling fully micro-services based automated and orchestrated workflows. Tecnotree Surge also includes an API gateway and an API adapter to connect legacy platforms that have not been migrated. This enables seamless integration across legacy and digital platforms and the ability to monetize the APIs. The low-code platform has proven capabilities to launch new services and integrate and re-use existing services via an intuitive business process modeller. This capability allows new services to be launched in hours and days rather than taking weeks and months to deliver.

Tecnotree’s DCBS solution will reduce complexity, increase accuracy and deliver speed with its convergent billing solution for all lines of businesses and services.

“We are delighted to extend our partnership by providing additional digital services that will mean a more agile and efficient operational service for our customer. No organisation is immune to disruption and the best defense remains in innovation. Our Digital BSS Suite 5 empowers our customers to respond to market demand, reduce costs and enable superior customer service. We truly believe that this will be a tremendous journey for both organizations that will enable differentiation in the rapidly evolving telecom market”, said Padma Ravichander, Tecnotree CEO.
