Receives Industry Award for Outstanding Performance and Service Excellence Fourth Year in a Row
Comverse, the world's leading supplier of software and systems enabling network-based multimedia enhanced communication and billing services, today announced that it has been selected as the recipient of the prestigious 2008 Telecom BSS Vendor of the Year award by Frost & Sullivan. This is the fourth consecutive year that Comverse has been awarded this honor, which recognizes the most outstanding telecom solutions vendor in the BSS (business support systems) segment in Asia Pacific.
“Comverse's success in Asia-Pac is evident from the deployment of its solutions with the top service providers in the region, including high growth emerging markets like India and China,” commented Kamlesh Kalwar, Industry Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “Today’s telecom operators need to be highly flexible and agile in order to deliver differentiated services to meet consumers’ ever-changing lifestyle and enhance the customer experience. This includes having a scalable back-end and billing system that enables operators to roll-out compelling new services quickly and efficiently, while offering a single integrated billing solution and view of the customer. Comverse’s converged billing suite has been able to help its customers meet this very need, empowering service providers to be versatile in today’s converging communications industry,” added Kalwar.
The honor was recently conferred at the 2008 Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific ICT Awards banquet in Singapore. These awards seek to recognize companies and individuals that have pushed the boundaries of excellence - rising above the competition and demonstrating exemplary growth and performance in the ICT (Information and Communications Technology) industry across the Asia Pacific region. Contenders for the Telecom BSS Vendor of the Year Award were evaluated based on key performance criteria for financial year 2007, including revenue and revenue growth, portfolio diversity, major wins and key achievements.
“Receiving this award for the fourth consecutive year reflects Comverse's unwavering commitment to addressing the dynamic business requirements of operators in today's competitive telecom environment, as demonstrated through the exceptional efforts of our regional team and partners," said Eitan Achlow, President of Comverse Asia Pacific. “Our Total CommunicationSM portfolio of value-added services, converged billing and IP communications solutions, together with our unsurpassed level of service, have enabled Comverse to become the vendor of choice in the region and the world over.”
