Comptel Corporation (NASDAQ OMX Helsinki: CTL1V) today announced that Zain, the leading telecommunications company in Kuwait, has deployed Comptel Convergent Mediation and Comptel Provisioning and Activation. The software will help the mobile operator consolidate its billing mediation transaction processing and automate the order-to-activation process, to improve time-to-market, customer satisfaction and top-line revenue generation.
