The most successful wholesale settlement system in the world: automated, accurate, and adaptable
When increased profitability depends on your ability to reduce costs through improved efficiency, retrofit, manual and makeshift solutions just won’t cut it. Today’s partner ecosystem is simply too diverse and complex.
CSG’s Interconnect helps companies make the most of their margins. The most widely used solution for billing and settlement between communication service providers (CSPs), it maximizes profitability by looking at your business from every angle: rating, billing, settlement, discounting, bilateral and refile agreements, multi-franchise and multi-language operations, automated reconciliation and Call Detail Record matching. It also manages compliance, invoicing, taxation, and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) integration.
“Since installing CSG's solution, the company is securing 35% of its annual revenue through carrier-to-carrier billing. This substantial contribution to our business is helping us achieve the financial backing we need to rollout these services. The solution has also become the backbone to our interconnect issues resolution process.” Digicel
“We needed a billing solution that could not only support basic voice calls but also data traffic. Our error rate for Interconnect billing is less than 0.3 percent. If there is ever a dispute over a particular bill we can analyse the details of the transactions to clarify discrepancies. Any transaction charge can be investigated, even if less than one percent of the disputed amount.” Billing Manager, Vodafone Ireland
Automating the resource-intensive transfer of contractual information an operator receives from its partners
Operators can have hundreds or even thousands of active agreements in place with their interconnect partners, each requiring rate sheets, statements, invoices, dispute records, refile and bilateral agreements, and other contractual documents to be regularly exchanged.
The CSG Exchange service allows operators to rigorously control the transfer of partner information without needing to deploy hardware, software or skilled resources. It provides:
- Secure upload of data from private, web-based email account drop box
- Email notification and alerts to both parties as information is processed
- Formalized acceptance or rejection of information received from partners
- An official repository of approved documentation
- Automatic loading of relevant data into billing and routing systems
- Compliance with GBET templates and protocols
Fierce competition in telecoms has created an industry where automation and efficiency are becoming vital to survival. CSG Exchange speeds document processing, frees skilled resources and minimizes costly disputes between partners, making the wholesale business more responsive and more profitable.
