Azur Congo Brazzaville, a subsidiary of group operator Bintel, has agreed a multimillion dollar contract with the billing & charging solutions provider Redknee as it prepares to launch services in the Republic of Congo.
Redknee has been tapped for its Turnkey Converged Billing (TCB) solution, which will allow the operator to manage all of its customers, irrespective of payment type and access technology, through one consolidated platform. In addition to enabling the targeted launch of promotions and services, the platform will also allow for tighter revenue control. Azur will also be able to offer electronic, prepaid wireless airtime top-ups.
“Bintel is proud of its reputation for entering high-growth markets with a thorough understanding of each of our markets, and delivering high quality, high value mobile telecommunication solutions to our customers. We are confident Azur’s launch in the Republic of Congo will be representative of our successful Africa-centric strategy…We have chosen to partner with the leaders in high-growth billing, customer care and Electronic Voucher Distribution (EVD) solutions, as we continue our growth strategy throughout the region,” said Stephane Beuvelet, General Manager, Azur Congo Brazzaville.
The contract further cements Bintel Group’s relationship with Redknee, which also works with the group operator in other African markets, including Gabon and the Central African Republic.
“This additional contract win further validates Redknee’s strategy to provide scalable products that support the performance requirements of high tier and group services operators,” said Redknee CEO, Lucas Skoczkowski. “This has enabled us to partner with our customers as they expand their business to enable their services and network growth, build new revenue streams and gain profitability."
