At the recent Convergence Summit North Union Street Technologies, the leading supplier of comms billing solutions, successfully signed a deal with tier one Carrier Provider Cloud9 Telephony Ltd, and will now be providing its award winning aBILLity billing suite to Cloud9.
Established in early 2013, Cloud9 offers channel partners highly competitive access to direct carrier network services at supply cost pricing. Cloud9 places strong emphasis on providing its channel partners with the highest levels of service, control, and most importantly, ownership over their customer base with transparent partner contracts.
With a customer base in excess of 350 comms providers (CPs), Union Street’s multi-award winning aBILLity application suite is the most widely deployed billing solution in the UK telecoms market, meeting every requirement in the billing and provisioning process including WLR3. A broad range of revenue assurance tools and other functionality within aBILLity can also help CPs to create innovative bundles and price plans whilst maximising profitability.
Commenting on Cloud9’s choice of aBILLity, Stuart Allbut, Director of Operations for Cloud9 stated, “We spent a great deal of time analysing the billing solutions market to find the best partner, both for us and our channel partners. Flexibility is one of the pillars of Cloud9’s channel offering, so aBILLity’s combination of a comprehensive feature set, WLR3 integration and integration with other third party solutions means that aBILLity is the obvious choice.”
Vincent Disneur, Head of Sales for Union Street commented “Cloud9’s choice of Union Street for this important partner service provision is indicative of the strength of our aBILLity software. We have signed a series of major contracts with wholesale network service suppliers and anticipate several more in the coming months.”
