Cross-channel Order Management platform with CPQ capabilities, driven by Product Catalog
Driven by Digital Transformation imperatives, Communications Service Providers (CSP) are at the point of relentless change to unlock service-centric operating model for greater agility driving network and IT convergence. The shift to digital has created, on one side, new customer and partner expectations in products and services, type of engagement and level of control. On the other side Telcos are transitioning from Communication Service Provider to a Digital Service Provider (DSP).
With a growing number and offer complexity, most challenging is management of quote and ordering processes. In fact order management is a major priority for OSS/BSS transformation amongst communications service providers seeking to streamline the order-to-cash process and provide greater customer satisfaction. Plenty of new demands can lead to unavoidable additional manual work followed by operational delays and customer dissatisfaction. Manual work can generate higher rates in order fallout as Digital Service Providers’ (DSP) lack of visibility into their processes to take corrective action quickly. This leads to revenue leakages.
ZIRA OM and CPQ is unified, modular and integrated solution that enables monetization of data living around IoT coming both from B2B and B2C static and dynamic data. Reaching out to more liquid customers through the cross Industry partnerships, supporting B2B2B2C models, results in more revenues in consumer space.
Order Management Solution for Communication Service Providers & Digital Service Providers
The solution is designed to tackle the complex challenges of quote and order capture for communications and digital service providers, enabling users to quickly and easily navigate the catalog to accurately select the right set of products for customers’ needs, personalize and tailor offers correctly, and produce quotes and feasible orders for delivery, creating differentiated customer experience.
On the other side isolated systems and manual processes cannot adequately support the complex B2B or B2C ordering lifecycle, leading to order inaccuracy, lengthy cycle times, high costs and an inconsistent experience that frustrates customers.
ZIRA UOM is an end-to-end application for the lead to contract process, designed to improve quote quality, enable solution creativity and improve sales team productivity. Promoting one-stop shopping relationship with the consumer is a critical business strategy and requires DSPs to consistently offer new and interesting service packages.
