Wholesale Business Management Suite

WBMS SaaS

Transform your operations and lower costs

The software is updated as part of the service and always has the latest functionality, avoiding costly upgrades.

Exchange

Simplify partner management

Fierce competition in telecom has created an industry where automation and efficiency are vital to survival. Operators have hundreds or even thousands of active agreements in place with their interconnect partners, each requiring rate sheets, statements and more to be exchanged.

CSG Exchange expedites document processing, freeing up skilled resources and minimizing costly partner disputes. Rigorously control the transfer of partner information without needing to deploy hardware, software or skilled resources. Agreement and rate information is validated upon receipt, with granularity down to the line level and all relevant parties notified of the results. The service also provides an independent repository for all agreements, which can be used as a formal point of reference during partner disputes.

  • Allocate valuable resources by automating data validations
  • Adhere to established business rules for acceptance and rejection
  • Reduce time to revenue by reducing disputes
  • Act on data within minutes of receipt
