News : Telefónica Argentina Hires Amdocs for BSS Transformation
Nov 5, 2014 --Telefónica Argentina and Amdocs have announced an extension to their existing partnership. Amdocs, the BSS provider, will assume responsibility for a wider array of BSS services transformation for the telco, including billing and ordering, and legacy systems integration.
Telefónica Argentina has previously collaborated with Amdocs, with transformation of BSS undertaken on the carrier’s wireless and wireline businesses in 2012 and 2014 respectively. In both instances, customer experience was the primary motivator for the BSS transformation, and it appears the telco is more than happy with the partnership’s fruitions so far.
The new agreement will see Amdocs’ services be applied to the management, maintenance, configuration, testing and training of multiple BSS systems for Telefónica Argentina, as well as third-party integration of applications.
Horacio Goldenberg, Telefónica Argentina’s CIO, believes that allowing Amdocs to take greater control over its BSS systems will afford the telco the flexibility to focus more on process and system simplification, leading to a more engaging and positive customer experience.
"Based on the success achieved so far, we are expanding our relationship with Amdocs by entrusting them to manage a broader range of our BSS systems," he said. "This will enable us to further simplify processes and systems so that we can deliver on our transformation goal of providing a consistent, advanced and simple customer experience across all channels – whether self-service or agent assisted, via the Web, call centre or retail store."
