LHS, the leading provider of telecommunications and billing software, today announced that Iusacell Mexico has selected BSCS iX to rate for its advanced 3G capabilities. Iusacell has selected LHS to migrate its billing and customer care system from BSCS 5 to BSCS iX to support its 3G services with real-time rating. Together with Iusacell, LHS will implement BSCS iX in Mexico.
Iusacell is currently offering its customers a range of new 3G services on its code division multiple access (CDMA) network including email, push-to-talk, downloadable ring tones, games, picture messaging, news and video downloads. To support its range of new services Iusacell needed a reliable, yet flexible billing infrastructure.
BSCS iX from LHS allows Iusacell to launch more innovative 3G services and products quickly, whilst supporting them with sophisticated marketing and pricing capabilities. BSCS iX will enable Iusacell to stay ahead of its competition in an increasingly competitive market. With BSCS iXâ€™s pre-post-paid convergence capabilities, Iusacell also has the option of rolling out all services across both pre- and post-paid customers.
The BSCS iX architecture enables real-time business operations for the entire rating and billing process, thus reaching a new level of customer-centricity, from the point of sale to providing real-time charging information right up to real-time billing self-services. It will allow Iusacell to benefit from easy integration of the system and reduced operational expenditure.
Roberto Vargas, Iusacell Chief Information Officer comments: â€œBSCS iX flexible rating and cost control capabilities and the open architecture will support us striving to remain number one in our market. LHS BSCS iX will allow us to deliver on our promise to provide next-generation services to all our customers.â€
Oscar Convers, Division Officer Latin America at LHS Americas, Sao Paulo adds: â€œWe have worked closely with Iusacell to make sure that their billing infrastructure can deliver the new services they are now offering so that it gains momentum in securing more revenue across this area of the business.â€
