It is more than five years since 3 launched their ground-breaking 3G services around the world. From early in 2003, 3 successfully began operating 3G networks in Australia, Austria, Denmark, Ireland, Italy, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. Intec has been with 3 every step of the way, providing each business with fully convergent prepaid and postpaid charging, billing, and customer care products.
2008 represents an important milestone for 3 and for Intec: over five years in production with the world’s first fully convergent customer care, charging, and billing infrastructure – using a single data model, single product catalogue, single database, single rating engine, and single balance manager for both pre-paid and post-paid services. This landmark anniversary clearly demonstrates that Intec Singl.eView is a market-hardened system, designed from the start for convergence, and proven to deliver tangible business benefits. 3’s operations globally have a higher than average ARPU for their countries, and, significantly, higher non-voice revenues than their competitors.
As testament to its wide ranging value, Intec Singl.eView has now been chosen by communication service providers on all five continents and is delivering unsurpassed levels of performance and reliability, while managing well over 100 million subscribers across the globe.
3 UK CTO Graham Baxter said “3 has had an enormous impact on the market place since our launch five years ago, and we continue to lead the way with new innovation which helps customers in their everyday lives. Our working partnership with Intec has made a significant contribution to our success, and I believe this five year milestone also reflects the longest and most successful production record for a fully convergent real-time rating and billing solution.”
“No matter how complex 3’s requirements or the breadth of their country reach, our high performance solutions have contributed towards the significant competitive edge 3 have established in the market,” concluded Andrew Taylor, CEO of Intec. “We have shown through our long-term relationship with 3 that Intec should be the first choice for operators needing true convergence, and the highest levels of billing and charging flexibility to differentiate their market proposition from that of their competitors.”
