While industry-specific billing methods, products, and services supported by billing systems designed for a specific purpose and charging model used to suffice for most companies 10 years ago, the pressures of globalization and technology requires that enterprises bill “outside of the box” and support ever changing charging models, products and services.
This need can be seen within many industries, one of which is the telecommunications space – where service providers face rapid changes in technology coupled with the increasing demand for these new products and services at lower prices.
