NetCracker Technology and Robi Axiata announced today that Robi has selected
NetCracker’s Revenue Management solution, integrating billing, interconnect
billing, and credit control, to enable new service innovation and superior
responsiveness to changing customer demands.

Robi Axiata is one of the three largest mobile operators in Bangladesh and
supports more than 22 million subscribers. The company offers voice and high
speed mobile data supported with advanced intelligent network technology.

NetCracker will replace a legacy billing system at Robi in order to increase
flexibility and reduce OPEX. As a result of this billing transformation, Robi
aims to introduce innovative price plans, accelerate new service rollouts, and
enhance customer management. The integrated NetCracker solution will bill for
all postpaid subscribers, roaming users, and interconnect agreements while
also actively monitoring usage, credit, rating, and new price plans.

“NetCracker is a clear choice for us as we improve postpaid billing and
customer care functionality to meet our rapidly expanding footprint of
customers,” said Niloy Rahman, Vice President, Development, at Robi. “They
have vast experience in both complex billing and customer care, and are a
trusted name in the industry.”

Robi Axiata is making a proactive investment in its billing infrastructure
because its growing, high value customer segments are keys to increased
revenue generation and profitability. As Bangladesh’s economy experiences
substantial growth, Robi’s customers demand more enhanced, value-added
services requiring more flexible and agile billing and credit control

“We are pleased to help Robi as they enter the next phase of their customer
care strategy, by helping improve their billing and customer experience
programs,” said Frank DeTraglia, Vice President of Global Sales, at
NetCracker. “It is an exciting time to be working with them, as they continue
to grow, scale and emerge as leaders in the region.”
