The advanced mobile services that prepaid and postpaid end-users increasingly demand present new challenges for mobile network operators' existing billing systems and customer relationship management services.
Legacy, postpaid billing systems must be complemented with new technology in order to bill for next-generation services involving multi-party settlements for multiple service providers.
Existing prepaid systems also need to be rethought to enable value-added service offerings for prepaid end-users, including true, easy-to-use prepaid roaming - services that, traditionally, have been available only to postpaid end-users.
Real-time billing solutions that can handle data must be adopted.
Whether prepaid or postpaid, new types of value-added services delivered over operator's networks involving multiple networks and multiple service providers will require billing and settlement management systems that are highly flexible. Systems will also be required to handle any type of service, regardless of the unit used to bill, and manage real-time multi-party settlements with ease and efficiency.
Upaid solutions were engineered to provide mobile operators the flexibility and settlement management tools required to manage new mobile services with ease.
