London/Cairo – 24th October, 2002 – Intec Telecom Systems, a global provider of Operations Support Systems (OSS) for telecommunications companies, and Giza Systems, a leading IT solution provider in the Middle-East, today announced a substantial second contract win with Telecom Egypt. The deal will supply Telecom Egypt, the country’s national communications company, with Intec’s InterconnecT ITU™ product for use in settling accounts with full compliance to the standards outlined by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU). Telecom Egypt is an existing user of Intec’s InterconnecT™ and Inter-mediatE™ solutions for intercarrier billing and mediation, which were successfully implemented and supported by Giza Systems across the company’s network in 2002. The business benefits achieved through the installation of these solutions encouraged the company to purchase InterconnecT ITU, which will complement the domestic intercarrier settlement platform.
“Intec’s Inter-mediatE and InterconnecT solutions have enabled us to optimise our profitability, and we anticipate the same level of success with the implementation of InterconnecT ITU,” says Azza Turk, Vice President, Telecom Egypt. “This project confirms Intec’s partnership with Giza Systems to be a success, and assures their ability to work together in providing a flexible billing platform, giving us the ability to easily evolve our services and business models to meet emerging market requirements.”
“We are very pleased to extend our close relationship with Giza Systems and work with them again to service and support Telecom Egypt,” says Tarek Mneimneh, Intec’s Middle-East regional manager. “As the biggest and most influential telecommunications company in the country, Telecom Egypt’s approval for our products is a strong endorsement for Intec. The company was impressed by the flexibility and scalability of Intec’s InterconnecT and Inter-mediatE solutions, which have helped to deliver additional revenue streams through fast and accurate usage collection, mediation and billing. InterconnecT ITU will provide even further settlement support as Telecom Egypt continues to expand the scope of its business to include more international partnerships.”
Intec’s InterconnecT ITU billing solution will allow Telecom Egypt to improve its billing of international interconnection partners in line with global regulations. As the leader in intercarrier billing with nearly 40% market share, Intec’s InterconnecT solution provides Telecom Egypt with a proven technology that can support any network requirement, including next generation services. InterconnecT ITU offers full international settlements capability, including automated reconciliation of settlements statements, issuance of ITU settlements statements and automated settling.
“Together with Intec we strive to offer customers the best and most innovative network solutions,” explains Shehab El Nawawi, Managing Director of Giza Systems. “Winning a second agreement with Telecom Egypt is a testament of the quality of products service and support that we deliver. GIZA is extremely pleased to work with Intec to extend its services to one of the biggest telecommunications companies in the Middle-East, and we expect to see further opportunities arise in the region as result of this success.”
