“Atos Origin launches solution ‘Business Accelerator’ for Mobile Virtual Network Operators”

Paris, 16 May 2005

Atos Origin announced today, at TeleManagement World Expo, Nice, the launch of a new solution for Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO) and Enablers (MVNE). Built around Microsoft .NET architecture, the solution includes pre- and post-paid billing, Customer Relationship Management and Order Management functions. Demonstrations of the solution can be seen at Microsoft Corp.'s booth, number 120.

The modular MVNO solution is designed for Operation Support System (OSS) and Business Support System (BSS) platforms and its flexibility means it can be adapted to meet multiple requirements, such as hosted Intelligent Networks (IN), hosted Value Added Services (VAS), and convergent billing.

François de Gasquet, Director Business Development Telecom at Atos Origin comments: “The solution ‘Business Accelerator' allows MVNOs to manage customer data and the billing process faster, more accurately and across borders. This will give them a competitive edge and help increase profits.”

Andrew Steven, Director of the Communications Sector at Microsoft added: ”The Microsoft .NET platform combined with Atos Origin's expertise in billing and CRM systems offers a compelling solution for MVNOs. Virtual operators and enablers can experience real commercial benefits in a short time with this integrated system.”
