Intec, a global provider of business support systems (BSS) solutions, has won a significant contract extension with Polkomtel, the operator behind Poland’s largest GSM network, PLUS, for Phase 2 of its NBS (New Billing System) project. In a multi-million Euro deal the contract involves the extension of Intec’s Convergent Billing solution (Singl.eView), to service Polkomtel’s post-paid customer base.
The announcement comes only twelve months after Polkomtel successfully went live with Intec’s Singl.eView platform for pre-paid subscribers. This deployment will enable Polkomtel to launch even more innovative, new products and services at a rapid rate, to both pre- and post-paid subscribers all on a single charging engine.
Since completion of Phase 1 Polkomtel has launched a number of unique new services including, for example, ‘Chill Bill’; subscribers receive a monthly account top-up, to spend on any Polkomtel 36.6 service tariff, in exchange for receiving three, one-and-a-half minute advertisements which they connect to via a freephone IVR number. Polkomtel is one of the first operators, worldwide, to have successfully launched a ‘Chill Bill’ style service.
In April 2009 Intec was selected the winner in the prestigious ‘Best Billing Solutions’ category in the Billing & OSS World 2009 Excellence Awards, for its work with Polkomtel.
