ECtel Ltd. (NASDAQ: ECTX), a leading provider of Integrated Revenue Management™ (IRM®) solutions for communications service providers, recently said that Vivo, a top mobile telecom provider in Brazil, has upgraded to FraudView 8.2, ECtel’s latest most innovative fraud management system.
The order was awarded to ECtel and long-term partner Bull, one of Europe’s leading integrators of open-source software, to supply Vivo with tools to obtain return on investment in its business-critical Information Systems (IS), allowing Vivo to operate with the highest security and efficiency levels.
By upgrading to FraudView version 8.2, Vivo will benefit from superior multi-environment real-time detection tools for increased revenue protection and fraud prevention. The new localized version will also enable Vivo, for the first time, to operate the system in Portuguese.
Vivo is equally owned by Portugal Telecom and the Telefónica group and provides coverage to over 2,000 cities in Brazil. It is the only cellular company in the country that offers mobile communication services for both GSM and CDMA, as well as CDMA EVDO (Code Division Multiple Access Evolution-Data Optimized) third-generation services.
FraudView is one of the cornerstones of ECtel’s market-leading IRM platform. The newly released FraudView 8.2 expands the product’s fraud convergence to include new technologies, improving the product’s extendibility, scalability and operational effectiveness. Featuring a new application screening module that provides new schemes to detect subscription fraud and repeat fraudsters at the service-provisioning and customer-acquisition phase, as well as a new credit-limit monitoring feature that continuously screens subscriber usage and monitors personal credit limits, FraudView 8.2 is the market’s most complete fraud management solution for telecom operators.
