SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today announced the release of the SAP Billing and Revenue Innovation Management rapid-deployment solution. The solution simplifies and accelerates the implementation of a complete set of order-to-cash business processes. It will enable telcos and high tech service providers to automate key processes, as well as streamline and more effectively manage their relationships with customers and partners.
The rapid-deployment solution is a combination of software, pre-configured content and predefined services specifically tailored for communications service providers. The solution covers six end-to-end business processes: customer and contract creation, usage charging, billing and invoicing, and account termination for both pre- and post-paid services.
"Last year we released the SAP Billing for Telecommunications package to enable communications services providers to rapidly launch innovative 'Telco 2.0' services and multi-sided business models," said Jens Amail, vice president, SAP Services Industries. "Now, with this solution, we offer a best-practices approach that helps ensure implementation success and reduce the initial time to value for our customers by up to 40 percent."
Generally available today, the SAP Billing and Revenue Innovation Management rapid-deployment solution is delivered with low upfront cost thanks to fixed-price and time-frame implementation services that mitigate financial risk and uncertainty. With this solution, communications service providers are able to quickly create and launch new offers, enjoy a 360-degree view of the customer, automate control the order capture and billing chain, calculate and report revenue share items with partners.
