Bulgaria's Mobiltel Selects Amdocs for Five-Year Managed Services Engagement
Amdocs to assume responsibility for Mobiltel's data center, disaster recovery
and business support systems operations across mobile, broadband and IPTV
lines of business
ST. LOUIS, Feb.14, 2013
ST. LOUIS, Feb.14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Amdocs (NYSE: DOX), the leading
provider of customer experience systems and services, today announced the
signing of a five-year managed services contract with Mobiltel (commonly known
as Mtel). One of the largest affiliates in the Telekom Austria Group, Mtel is
Bulgaria's largest mobile service provider, and also provides fixed, broadband
Internet and IPTV services. Mtel has awarded Amdocs responsibility over a wide
range of IT operations, including data center, disaster recovery and business
support systems (BSS) operations, across all lines of business. Amdocs will
also deliver additional managed services, including application development,
integration management, testing and hardware procurement and maintenance.
Amdocs' rating, billing, ordering, customer management and product catalog
systems have been implemented at Mtel since 2007. Under the new agreement,
Amdocs will support Mtel's Amdocs systems as well as 17 other legacy and
third-party systems. As a result, Mtel will be able to improve operational and
business performance levels in several areas, including system and service
availability, problem resolution, time to market for new services and bill
transparency, and reduce the number of customer calls to its call centers.
"By expanding our relationship with Amdocs to include its acclaimed IT
operational support, we will be able to achieve high performance levels with a
highly efficient cost structure," said Horst Pertl, chief technology officer
at Mtel. "This managed services agreement is a significant milestone in our
strategy to consolidate our operations to become a true, multi-play provider,
and will help us to further differentiate ourselves, while offering an
exceptional customer experience."
"With a business model that covers products, services and IT operational
capabilities specific to communications service providers, Amdocs offers its
managed services customers full accountability and expertise in supporting
their highly complex systems and operational environments," said Rebecca
Prudhomme, vice president of product and solutions marketing at Amdocs. "By
freeing itself from day-to-day IT operations and by establishing a single
point of contact for multiple suppliers, Mtel will be able to focus on its
customers, marketing initiatives and business growth."
A 30-year leader in the communications space, Amdocs is ranked twelfth in the
Global Outsourcing 100® list of best outsourcing service providers across all
industries. In 2012, Amdocs signed new managed services agreements to support
more than 100 million subscribers at service providers in Europe, Asia and
