The contract will increase Intecâ€™s existing relationship with UTS, which was established in 2000 with the successful installation of Intecâ€™s InterconnecT ITU system.
UTS is one of the Caribbean’s growing providers of fixed and mobile telecommunication services, offering consumers, businesses and governments a wide range of voice and data services such as broadband, video, SMS, MMS, long distance, collect calling, leased lines, and pre-paid calling cards.
â€œUTS is committed to improving and expanding its infrastructure to provide the best services to its customers and to become the preferred supplier of a broad range of telecom services, including wholesale capacity,â€ said Paul de Geus, UTS CEO. â€œWe chose Intec because, like UTS, they are market leaders who strive for excellence and are focused on offering best-in-class products and services. Implementing Intecâ€™s convergent interconnect billing system and innovative trading and routing solution will support us in our mission to become a key regional player in the wholesale telecom market place.â€
The Intec Trading and Routing solution is a market-leading product, offering significantly lower wholesale costs, key decision support, aggressive pricing, more efficient routing and greater time to market for clients such as TeliaSonera, Eircom, Wind, Telecom Egypt, VimpelCom and now UTS. Together with Intec Interconnect v7, the two systems will complement the existing InterconnecT ITU installation and will streamline business operations at UTS, thus improving operational efficiency. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2007.
