Strategic Imperatives Reinvents Telecom Billing with Elevate

7th October 2014

Not limited by outdated practices, legacy technologies or obsolete infrastructure, Elevate is a major step change in Telecommunication Billing that will revolutionise the way Communication Providers manage and bill their customers.

Staines upon Thames, Surrey – 7th October 2014 – Strategic Imperatives, the leading provider of virtual network, BSS and OSS solutions has today announced its intention to shake up the UK billing solutions market with the release of a new and highly innovative billing service – Elevate.

With a strong focus on performance, reliability and usability, Elevate is designed from the ground up to make every aspect of the billing process easier, faster and more flexible. It also has the unique capability to respond in real time to changes in customer and pricing data enabling communication providers to plan ahead rather than continue to react to historical snapshots of their business.

“The UK billing market has stagnated in recent years with the choice of billing vendors eroded by mergers and acquisitions. Our customers have been crying out for a modern genuine alternative and we are delighted to be in a position to respond to that need with a service that we believe will shake up the industry and change the landscape forever”, commented Wail Sabbagh, MD, Strategic Imperatives.

Elevate is a true cloud billing platform, fully managed, supported and maintained by Strategic Imperatives. It utilises the Amazon Web Services elastic infrastructure to provide incredible performance benefits allowing the Elevate billing engine to scale dynamically and on demand.

Commenting on Elevate’s elastic architecture, Sabbagh added “the Elevate premise is that the moment you need it, whenever you need it, the power and capability enjoyed by the world’s largest enterprises is yours whatever your size.”

Elevate is a modern feature rich billing system that through its focus on usability empowers communication providers with a diverse customer base who offer a flexible range of products and services, with sophisticated pricing models.

“The current crop of billing systems are stuck in the past and unnecessarily complex to use since they were designed at a time when resellers only billed calls with additional functionality such as line rental and mobile being bolted on in piecemeal fashion later”, explains Tim Sayer, Head of Business Development. “Imperatives web based human centric approach to interface design and the importance we attach to creating a streamlined user experience is a breath of fresh that will transform the way communication providers run their business”.

Strategic Imperatives’ multi-million pound investment in Elevate billing adds to its award winning telecom service delivery platform and serves to close the circle in terms of managing the customer lifecycle. The platform already allows communication providers to provision and manage telecom services such as WLR, CPS and Broadband.
