Atlanta/London: December 2nd, 2003 – Intec Telecom Systems, a global provider of operations support systems (OSS) for the telecommunications industry, has signed a deal with TelePacific Communications, a leading broadband telecommunications provider in the Western U.S., to provide its InterconnecT CABS CG™ carrier access billing platform. The deal also includes Intec’s Dispute Manager, which tracks CABS billing disputes. The implementation will be completed later this year.
During the initial implementation phase, TelePacific will make the transition from its current CABS service bureau to Intec’s Dallas-based CABS service bureau to process its CABS bills. Once the implementation is complete TelePacific will use InterconnecT CABS CG to process millions of calls per day. TelePacific, a leading communication provider in California, offers local, long distance, broadband Internet, Web hosting, co-location and data transport services to more than 6000 businesses in California and Nevada.
“We needed to augment our CABS capabilities,” says Norman Racine, chief information officer for TelePacific. “I had used InterconnecT CABS CG at another company and was impressed by the product’s functionality and its overall cost of ownership, which is why I suggested we consider bringing our CABS billing process in-house.”
“The accuracy and reliability of InterconnecT CABS CG will increase TelePacific’s CABS revenue and shorten the current turnaround time for CABS bills and payments,” says Fred Brott, vice president of North American operations for Intec. “Our Dispute Manager will also allow TelePacific to record and analyse carrier history and dispute resolution, allowing them to manage and analyse disputed bills.”
InterconnecT CABS CG is a sophisticated, high-performance, carrier-grade solution designed for US carriers looking to maximise the revenue they obtain from providing local communications facilities to other carriers. According to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in America, wireless companies can now bill for carrier access revenue, which means they can charge long-distance carriers for each and every call those carriers terminate on a wireless network. InterconnecT CABS CG enables companies to record and bill for all relevant access charges. It also provides faster ROI by offering more efficient processing of usage data through improved ease-of-use. In addition, InterconnecT's unique Dispute Manager module, which collects and organises detailed records of all usage data, helps to better defend against billing disputes, thus improving revenue collection.
TelePacific Communications is a full service telecommunications provider offering local, long distance, broadband Internet, web hosting, co-location, and data transport services in the California and Nevada marketplace. TelePacific currently provides services in seven major metropolitan markets. For more information, visit www.telepacific.com.
