bcgi (NASDAQ:BCGI), a leading provider of products and solutions that enable mobile operators and mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) worldwide to differentiate their offerings and increase market penetration while reducing costs, has recently announced its continued international expansion with the official opening of an office in Madrid, Spain. The new location places bcgi directly in the economic heart of Spain, giving clients in Southern Europe greater access to the companyâ€™s expertise in billing and payment solutions.
As deregulation opens Spainâ€™s telecom market to allow MVNOs to operate on local carrier networks, bcgi is well-positioned to provide global MVNOs with an array of products, solutions and services. As a principal provider of managed billing, payment and access management solutions, bcgi brings its leading expertise to current and emerging operators and MVNOs in Spain and Southern Europe.
â€œDeregulation has triggered demand for sophisticated billing and payment services with MVNOs entering the market,â€ said E.Y. Snowden, bcgi president and CEO. â€œLeveraging bcgiâ€™s enviable experience in providing essential products and solutions for MVNOs in the United States, we are excited to expand our business reach to burgeoning markets in Spain and Southern Europe.â€
The Madrid office will be headed by Leopoldo Moreno, managing director of bcgi Iberia, who will report to David Fondots, vice president of bcgi International Sales. Moreno brings his years of experience in Europe to lead bcgiâ€™s growth to its client base in Spain.
â€œThe Spanish telecom market is undergoing tremendous change as the influx of MVNOs reshapes the competitive landscape for service providers and operators looking to quickly introduce new products and services,â€ Moreno said. â€œbcgiâ€™s innovative solutions will help customers compete effectively by attracting and retaining additional subscriber customers, thereby increasing their ability to drive additional revenue while lowering their costs.â€

The company employs almost 500 people worldwide and is headquartered in Bedford, Massachusetts; with offices in Westbrook, Maine; London; Madrid; Mexico City and Singapore; and development centers in Hyderabad, India; and Petah Tikva, Israel.
