Comarch successfully delivers its billing cloud to fring, a global mobile VoIP leader

Comarch signed a framework agreement with fring, a leader in global mobile chat andVoIP communications, for a high availability Billing Cloud service.

Thanks to the Comarch Billing Cloud, fring has been able to add fringOut to its services portfolio. fringOut lets fringsters call any landline or mobile in the world, practically free of charge, all from their mobile phone, at very attractive prices, starting from 1¢/minute. As the billing service is provided from the Comarch Cloud, the project was completed within a very short time. The billing service is provided to multiple fring datacenters around the globe.

– Adding the fringOut service to our portfolio was another logical step in our development. We would like to concentrate on delivering the highest quality communication to our customers. That is why we decided to outsource billing functionalities. Of course, it had to be real-time billing, and finding a provider that also met all our other requirements was not so easy. Comarch delivered exactly what was agreed. By working together with Comarch, we can improve end user satisfaction – states …., position, fring.

The delivered solution covers the entire process of product preparation, allowing defining details of the services offered to customers, providing and reselling such services over available sales channels, activating, controlling and billing for such services, in addition to monitoring and reporting them.

– This is another very important step for Comarch, especially as it concerns our services in the cloud model, for such a prestigious customer. It proves that our portfolio is both highly rated and trustworthy among players on the telecom market. We know that real-time billing must be more open to operators, and we are going to meet this challenge – highlights Piotr Piatosa, Vice President of the Management Board and Head of the Telecommunications Business Unit, Comarch S.A.

The project also involved business partners such as G2S and PayPal, as providers of the payment services.

Comarch Billing SaaS ensures delivering the highest quality services to an operator’s customers. It offers prepaid and postpaid billing, real-time AAA (Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting), CRM functionalities and services monitoring.
