  1. Cost Management: BillTrak Pro highlights over $2 million in potential cost savings

Solution: TEOCO teamed up with Capgemini to integrate the Carriers’ operational and business support systems (OSS/BSS) with BillTrak Pro and to provide a reliable single source for their network inventory that could be integrated into BillTrak Pro. The solution involved implementing a data reconciliation engine to receive circuit inventory information from multiple third-party tools and standardize that data into a single view of the entire logical inventory integrated into BillTrak Pro.

Value Generated: The carrier realized multiple cost-saving opportunities. Among the most immediate and dramatic savings were an estimated $2 million in annual revenue based on network traffic-related savings, which resulted from inconsistencies between actual network traffic and carrier invoices over the preceding six months.

  1. Customer Analytics: Building a better customer experience in the MVNO market

Operator Challenge: Aside from its traditional wireless services, this Tier-1 wireless service provider also supports a lucrative MVNE business with more than ten various MVNO partners, typically in a prepaid model.  The approximately 12 million MVNO subscribers represent over ten percent of the operator’s subscriber base.  The largest of these MVNOs targets texting subscribers with plans that are focused on low cost, low voice and data use, but high SMS.  The number two and number three MVNOs were generating about $200,000 – $250,000 per month in revenue, and they were also targeting the same market. The host operator felt that they were missing opportunities for growth; in effect, they were cannibalizing each other’s market share by going after the same subscribers.

Solution: TEOCO provided the host MVNE operator with its QCella platform for usage analysis, and when it  analyzed the actual subscriber profiles, along with behavior and usage data across all MVNOs, it showed  that there were two areas of the market that were not being addressed by the MVNO’s current price  plans and marketing outreach.  The prepaid ‘low cost, high voice market’ and the prepaid ‘mid-cost, high voice, high text market’ did not have MVNO plans that met their needs.  Once these gaps were identified, the host MVNE operator approached their partner MVNOs and shared this insight.
