“Hosted MVNO Services Launched by CDRator and Atos Origin”
Paris, 16 December 2005
Joint efforts already resulted in successful launch of Simyo, KPN's mobile brand
Atos Origin, an international IT services company, and CDRator, a provider of an integrated Business Support System (BSS) for telecom companies, have partnered to offer hosted BSS services to telecoms service providers. The global partnership means that Atos Origin will offer CDRator's integrated BSS - an all-in-one package for billing, customer care and business management - as a hosted service to its clients and prospects, particularly those in the emerging Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) market.
Atos Origin and CDRator have collaborated together before, most recently on a Netherlands-based project for KPN Mobile - Simyo* - launched in September to the Dutch market. Simyo is KPN's mobile brand with a ‘no nonsense' concept aimed at people that would like to call and SMS at low tariffs without any obligations of subscriptions fee. Atos Origin, as KPN's preferred IT partner, managed the complete IT project for which it chose CDRator's hosted solution. Atos Origin's services included: consulting services, business analysis and process modeling, design and integration of IT architecture and process architecture.
Cees de Jong, Senior Vice President, Global Telecom Market at Atos Origin said: “The Simyo project showed us the potential of a partnership with CDRator. Simyo was implemented in record time of three months thanks to the effective work of flexible CDRator and Atos Origin team members, to the complete satisfaction of KPN Mobile. CDRator is an innovative organization with an excellent track record in the European MVNO industry and together we will offer our existing and new customers a competitive proposition.”
Jesper Philipp, CEO of CDRator, concluded: “We believe Atos Origin has excellent in-depth knowledge of the European telecoms market and its consult-build-operate approach and geographical reach complements our specialist knowledge of this market. We feel that this partnership will prove to be highly productive and reinforces our market presence in the MVNO and Service Provider domain. MVNO's that are already using the solution are among others Debitel, EasyMobile and Telmore.”
