Confronted with massive pressure on technological as well as on market fronts due to the rapid convergence and stiff competition, CSPs are seeing increased revenue opportunities and long term future growth in offering their customers with more personalised and converged next generation digital data, voice and video services in various pricing plans so as to enhance customer loyalty and reduce churn. But, due to lack of unified architecture at place, existing billing system does not fully cater to quickly launch and capture revenue from these new digital services, forcing CSPs to rethink on right billing transformation strategy.
