T-Mobile Czech Republic Selects Amdocs CES 7.5 Enterprise Product Catalog Software
ST. LOUIS and PRAGUE, Czech Republic, July 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Amdocs , the leading provider of customer experience systems, and T-Mobile Czech Republic, the largest mobile provider in the Czech Republic, today announced that T-Mobile Czech Republic has selected the Amdocs CES Enterprise Product Catalog 7.5 software as a central product information repository for services, handset and accessories offered via its self-service portal. The Amdocs software will allow T-Mobile Czech Republic to define, blend, price, bundle, maintain and retire these offerings easily and quickly.
T-Mobile companies in Germany and in the UK, that serve a combined customer base of more than 50 million customers, have also deployed Amdocs Enterprise Product Catalog. The Amdocs software allows T-Mobile Germany and T-Mobile UK to reduce product configuration effort and cost, as well as time to market for new products.
"Service providers are incorporating retail practices and technologies for better competitive differentiation and an enterprise-wide product catalog is a key ingredient in this endeavor," said Susan McNeice, Program Manager, OSS/BSS Global Competitive Strategies, Stratecast, a division of Frost & Sullivan. "This is especially true when the catalog must integrate many disparate applications, as the catalog becomes the 'single source of truth' for all product information in the enterprise."
This agreement extends a six-year relationship between T-Mobile Czech Republic and Amdocs. T-Mobile Czech Republic was among the first Amdocs Billing customers to upgrade to Amdocs Billing 7, and also uses Amdocs' customer management products.
