“How much data do I need?”
We all shop around to get the fastest speed, the best value, and always, more data.
Your innovative marketing team is constantly building new ways to attract consumers. This is to increase customer loyalty & avoid churn. Some offer; “unlimited” data on social media or “unlimited” data when video streaming. Others implement extra data for specific activities, such as, “extra music (Spotify)” or “extra streaming (YouTube).” Even data roaming passes are now common practice.
So, the question is: Do you bill these new data services properly, to prevent revenue leakage and customer experience issues?
Is the data allowance, for the option you have built, applied correctly? Has the validity period been respected and has it ended at the right time? Do your subscribers really get a notification when the data limit is met as per your policy?
Actually, all those “unlimited” offers are not really unlimited… This is such a complex process that even regulators now start to regulate how data bundles should be checked and invoiced.
How Araxxe can help you?
If you want to keep up with increased data billing, better manage the increased number of features you offer and how you bill those features, we can help you.
If you want to know more about our Data Bundle Billing Verification Service, or any other Revenue Assurance or Fraud Detection solution, don’t hesitate to contact us, we will be glad to help!
Collaboration of Araxxe to the newly released ETSI Standard for Billing Verification
Back in 2009, Araxxe was involved in the ETSI’s Technical Committee User Group (European Telecommunications Standards Institute) to define the TS 102 845 Billing Verification Standard.
But almost 10 years later, it is time for an update! Araxxe participated again with other vendors and operators in a project to update this important technical specification.
What is the ETSI standard and why is it important for you?
Operators, regulators and other players in the telecommunications market can find in the standard a model for designing and operating the check-up of metering and billing processes and systems. In addition, it provides operators guidelines and best practices on which information and how the billing chain should be checked.
What has been updated since the first version written in 2009?
Several new recommendations have been made concerning billing verification of value-added services (e.g. mobile money). On top of this, the standard contains advice on how to control promotional offers that are currently common practice in the telecommunications market (e.g. unlimited offers).
The standard also contains a new chapter about the test methodology which could be applied for billing verification; in other words, what should be done technically to make sure an operator has full control of the billing chain.
You can view the ETSI document here.
How and why can Araxxe help?
