NetCracker Technology and VimpelCom Group (brand “Beeline“) has completed the first phase of OSS transformation at VimpelCom. The OSS Solution for VimpelCom includes such NetCracker modules as Resource Inventory, Discovery & Reconciliation, Outside Plant, and Order Management. NetCracker’s solution helps VimpelCom improve the overall efficiency and management of the network. Specific benefits include the following:
— Reduced operational expenses on VoIP and PSTN service activation through a reduction in the number of inventory systems
— Increased data quality as well as improved efficiency and accuracy of the service planning process through the creation of regular reconciliations with the live network
— Lowered IT support and maintenance costs through the consolidation and retirement of multiple legacy systems
“NetCracker has enabled VimpelCom Group to speed up operations and minimize the risk of billing errors while providing PSTN and VoIP services,” said Alexey Goryachkin, Chief Technical Officer at VimpelCom Group. “We look forward to working with NetCracker on our other lines of business to ensure consistency and progress across all VimpelCom’s networks.”
“It has been a true pleasure working with VimpelCom,” said Andrew Feinberg, President and CEO of NetCracker. “We look forward to continuing our work with the VimpelCom Group and to helping them improve operational and cost efficiencies across all their business units.
