Belize-based mobile operator Smart Telecom today announced that it has selected FTS’ convergent billing solution to offer more innovative and affordable services to its customers. The implementation of FTS’ billing software will provide Smart with greater opportunities for revenue growth as it evolves to 4G LTE technology.
FTS is a global provider of billing, charging, policy control and payment solutions. The new billing platform is a positive step for Smart as the company continues its commitment to being Belize’s leading telecoms innovator. FTS’ billing solution is scheduled to become operational during 2016.
FTS' Leap™ Billing provides Smart with convergent charging, billing, invoicing, customer management and partner management. FTS also acts as a systems integrator for the project, providing Smart with a turnkey solution, including network elements, SCP, voicemail and IVR from multiple vendors.
“Leap Billing enables us to maintain our position as the trendsetter in telecommunications in Belize,” commented Ernesto Torres, Smart’s CEO. “Our decision to work with FTS was not only made based on the flexibility of Leap Billing, which features everything we need to bring new services to our customers, but also because we have found FTS to be an adaptable and resourceful company to work with.”
“We’re very pleased to be working with Smart and are looking forward to a long-term partnership that further enhances the customer experience for Smart’s subscribers,” said Avi Kachlon, FTS’ CEO. “This contract further advances our position in the Caribbean and Latin American region, and we’re very excited about the new opportunities that this presents for FTS.”
