Press Release: ZIRA and Saudi Telecom Company Win Global Telecoms Business Innovation Award
In Recognition for Their Collaborative of Proactive Roaming Protection
29 May, 2017 (LONDON) – ZIRA, a leading vendor of BSS software and solutions, is pleased to announce today that along with Saudi Telecom Company (STC), they received the Telecom Innovation Award for software and applications. Awarded by Global Telecoms Business, a leading telecoms publication, the award honors the most innovative projects between operators and vendors that are addressing critical market needs. With more projects failing than ever before, successfully innovating and implementing new projects is a feat to be recognized.
ZIRA and Saudi Telecom Company were recognized for their collaborative deployment of a Proactive Roaming Protection solution that automates reconciliation and validation of data before actual payments are approved for wholesale revenue management. With new market demands making it essential that Telecom operators provide subscribers with the freedom to roam across the world and, that they can bill for the services they have provided, they need to ensure that data received from Clearing Houses is correct and that all defined business rules have been implemented. This proactive approach provides the ability to identify issues and bad data before the actual business decision.
“We are very proud of the honourable recognition from Global Telecoms Business once again,” says Alen Muslic, VP Product Management at ZIRA. “Today, thanks to our solution, STC is able to fully incorporate roaming domain into overall wholesale business and unify 20+ different business units under one platform.”
The Global Telecoms Business awards were presented to winners at a black-tie dinner in London. The telecoms industries’ top executives attended to recognize global industry leaders and the impact of innovative projects in moving the industry forward.
