MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS, BARCELONA, Feb. 16 /CNW/ - Acision, a world leader in mobile data, today announces that Tata Teleservices, one of the fastest growing dual technology telecom service providers in India, has selected Acision SMSC, Acision MMSC, Acision Business Tools, and Acision's mobile data charging solution for its brands - Tata Indicom (CDMA services) and Tata DOCOMO (GSM services).
Tata Teleservices Limited wanted to work with a strategic partner to provide value-added services that will support the service provider in increasing the revenue potential sitting in both its networks. As Tata's incumbent messaging supplier since 2004, Acision was selected because of its ability to offer high-performance, scalable mobile data solutions that are focused on supporting Tata Teleservices current and future business strategy and help its services stand out in an increasingly competitive Indian market.
The new contract includes capacity expansion on the Acision SMSC and Acision MMSC, with the aim of increasing Tata's text and multimedia messaging traffic volumes by up to 90%. Tata Teleservices will also have the ability to view information and report on data usage and performance across all its messaging services with Acision Business Tools. In addition, Tata will deploy advanced, real-time rating and charging with Acision's mobile data charging solution, giving the operator access to accurate account information. This will also give Tata Teleservices the control to reduce exposure to revenue leakage and secure the network against the threat of prepaid fraud.
"Partnering with Acision has given Tata Teleservices a strong and competitive advantage in the messaging VAS space over its competitors," said Mr. A G Rao, Chief Technology Officer and President, Enterprise Business, Tata Teleservices Limited.
"Analysing data in real-time, using Acision Business Tools, will help us serve the customer more efficiently. Today those businesses that operate in real-time using predictive technology methods lead the way in winning customer loyalty and customer satisfaction. While selecting a partner for deploying messaging solutions on our GSM network, we were confident that Acision was the right technology partner to replicate the success that we achieved using their tools on our CDMA network. With Acision's innovation and expertise, Tata Teleservices is on track to establish itself as the best telecom network provider in India," Mr Rao added.
Rory Buckley, CEO at Acision, commented: "Acision is proud to support Tata Teleservices to meet their ambitious business plan to achieve profitable and sustainable growth as the company moves forward. This win reaffirms our track record and strong commitment to Tata and demonstrates our ability to rollout innovative messaging and mobile payment services."
