Upaid Systems Joins the Global Billing Association
  24th July 2001
  (PARIS – July 24, 2001) - Upaid Systems, the developers of the patented Upaid payment and settlement management platform, recently joined the Global Billing Association (GBA), "the voice and advocate of the billing professional." Through its membership in the GBA, Upaid Systems seeks to gain a clearer understanding of the billing and payment settlement issues affecting service providers today and to contribute to the GBA’s discussions and forums.

Antoine Leboyer, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Upaid Systems, stated, "We are eager to participate and feel that our experience in developing a payment and settlement management platform that eliminates yesterday’s segregation of prepaid and postpaid wireless end-users will help the GBA further its goal of facilitating debate on issues facing the industry. Upaid Systems, like our fellow members of the GBA, seeks to encourage discussion on many of the challenges associated with offering new types of value-added services to all end-users today, such as prepaid convergent services and prepaid wireless roaming. We feel that we have much to learn from the GBA and much to add to the debates."

Alex Leslie, Executive Director of the GBA, commented, "It is always exciting when a new member comes on board, and we particularly welcome the involvement of Upaid Systems with its convergent billing credentials. I know they will have plenty to contribute, particularly to our discussions on next generation billing. It is very important that the debate encompasses as many opinions and areas of expertise as possible, so that the breadth and depth of our discussions provide truly useful recommendations to operators and service providers."
