In an effort to enable instant changes to mobile broadband offerings, rates, and billing procedures, T-Mobile signed onto to a three-year contract with Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) to deploy its billing solutions in Poland.
Because of rapid growth in the country, carriers have found it difficult to launch new offerings and services to meet subscriber demands. Ericsson's new service will provide T-Mobile with solutions to match its changing business, technology, and operational demands and also ensure solution management over the entire life of the customer.
Noting the software solutions provider has worked with T-Mobile for 18 years through Polska Telefonia Cyfrowa, T-Mobile's Polish network operator, Ericsson Head of Region Western & Central Europe Anders Runevad said: "T-Mobile`s billing system is at the heart of its relationships with its subscribers and through our capabilities in services and software we will now handle the day-to-day maintenance and development of the system and applications."
Headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, Ericsson has more than 1,000 billing and revenue management solutions supporting more than 2 billion subscriptions. It generated $33.8 billion in revenue in 2012.
