ECtel Ltd. has been chosen as a World BSS Award finalist for its revenue assurance project (RAP) with AT&T Mobility.
“We are honored to receive this mark of recognition for our unique and innovative revenue assurance solutions and contributions to the industry,” said Mr. Itzik Weinstein, President and CEO of ECtel. “The size and scope of the project made this a complex undertaking, however, we are very happy to say that ECtel’s RAP provided AT&T with the most effective tool to solve the revenue assurance challenges it was presented with by today’s market.”
The World BSS Awards, launched in 1997, help raise awareness of the significance of billing and information management systems and processes to the communications industry, identifying key trends and rewarding BSS best practice.
