ZIRA’s Wholesale Business Revenue Management (WBRM) 6.0 solution is acknowledged for an outstanding contribution to enabling Improved business agility. The TM Forum Excellence Awards recognize the achievements and advances made by companies enabling digital business and services for others.
Since 2007, TM Forum’s Awards have recognized the world’s leading companies for their innovative achievements and significant contributions spanning business and IT transformation, customer centricity and product and services innovation.
“Congratulations to TM Forum’s Excellence Award nominees,” said Nik Willetts, deputy CEO at TM Forum. “TM Forum is based on the work and success of its members, and we are thrilled to see such high caliber results achieved by these global innovators. It’s clear that these companies will continue to pave the way forward for us as the digital industry evolves.”
ZIRA helps operators solve wholesale business challenges by improving efficiency and extending their business agility to support new revenue streams beyond traditional wholesale. ZIRA supports operators to play a key role through their interconnect and wholesale telecom business and to respond to new market challenges such as introducing multiparty settlement (B2B2C and/or B2B2B) support for faster entry of other non-telecom partners, expanding business models and revenue opportunities beyond traditional wholesale business.
By implementing ZIRA’s Wholesale Business Revenue Management (WBRM) 6.0 solution, operators increase their internal and external value visibility and operational efficiency while reducing OPEX costs related to manual handling and processing. This creates demand for pioneering the convergence of settlement operations for simultaneously handling interconnect partners, OPCOs, clearing houses, and MVNOs.
“We are proud that ZIRA is being recognized by TM Forum and the telecom industry for our contributions to driving business ability for wholesale growth”, says Alen Muslic, VP Product Management at ZIRA. “The ability to settle telecom and non-telecom (Content Providers, IoT, etc.) data into a unified (or revenue share) invoice represents one of the key market directions today and for the foreseeable future.”
