· Deal endorses Interconnect as a preferred billing system, setting a precedent for Compaq affiliates
· Underlines Intec’s growing presence in major Eastern Europe fixed and GSM carriers
March 7th, 2002: Intec Telecom Systems, a world leader in Operations Support Systems for the telecommunications industry, and Compaq, one of the world’s largest integrators of IT solutions, have announced that Matav, Hungary’s national PTT, has gone into production with Intec’s InterconnecT™ billing product. As part of a partnership deal with Intec, Compaq recommends, delivers and installs InterconnecT to its global telecoms customers. The software will ease Matav’s intercarrier billing process, enabling the company to charge operators and service providers for using its network and facilities.
“Intec’s InterconnecT solution, combined with Compaq’s excellent hardware, provides us with the information and revenues we need to maintain our leadership position in Hungary’s telecommunications market”, says Laszlo Harsanyi, Billing Director for Matav. “The billing platform is a success and we feel confident about our capabilities for revenue optimisation despite increased competition in the newly liberalised economy.”
Intec worked closely with Compaq to install the billing platform within the required timescale, while helping to manage the integration of the billing system on Compaq’s AlphaServer. Matav currently manages 9 million CDRs daily with the new billing platform, with minimal time delay. The company predicts that the open economy will help to increase that number to 24 million CDRs by 2002 and over 48 million CDRs by 2004.
“Interconnect is a specialised area of telecommunications and very few companies have the capability to meet the demands of Matav’s network”, explains Tamas Kovacs, consultant at Compaq. “The decision to use Intec’s InterconnecT solution was relatively easy to make. As the global market leader, Intec has the experience to offer cost savings and to ensure the least level of risk to the network.”
Intec’s CEO, Kevin Adams, said “ Working closely together with Compaq, Intec has created a billing platform that has the flexibility and sophistication to improve and protect Matav’s revenue creation in Hungary’s open telecoms market. The successful integration sets precedence for further business deals with companies in this region.”
