RateIntegration, Inc. has appointed Imran Jan as EVP of Business Development. In this role, Imran will oversee product strategy, and worldwide business development and strategic partnerships within the company’s Telecom, Internet 2.0 and near-telecom market segments.

He led the platform strategy, scoping, development and conversion of 4M BOOST subscribers from legacy platform to a multimillion dollar Next Generation Pre-Paid mobile virtual network enabled (MVNE) platform. He also managed the full customer lifecycle launch of the first full service CDMA Pre-Paid product for Boost Mobile MVNO that generated 300,000 new subscribers within 8 months. As part of one of the largest merger transformation programs in the telecommunications industry, he led the solutions integration office to integrate the Sprint (CDMA) and Nextel (IDEN) platforms.
Prior to his Tier I operator experience, he worked as the IT Director at start-ups TalkingNets Communications and BroadRiver Communications (VoIP CLECs).

“Imran brings broad industry knowledge and experience to help our customers and partners with the architecture and implementation of our 3rd generation revenue life-cycle management solutions for loyalty management, price modeling, advanced rating, and profitability assurance” remarked RateIntegration’s CEO, Thomas Thekkethala.
“I am truly excited with RateIntegration’s product portfolio that was designed from the ground up to turbo-charge customer’s existing B/OSS investments enabling them to accelerate new products and services to the market without the typical time and cost associated with existing solutions in the marketplace. The fact that Tier I operators like British Telecom have launched hundreds of new services over the years without a single line of custom code from RateIntegration is a testament to the product’s far-reaching vision of delivering the lowest TCO for our customers. This is truly a product-focused company,” said Imran.
