IDI Billing Solutions to Support Wholesale Providers Globally Using Microsoft Azure

Comprehensive solution features fast, flexible roll out strategy to facilitate rapid market expansion while managing scalability and security

CHICAGO, INTERNATIONAL TELECOMS WEEK (ITW) (May 11) — IDI Billing Solutions (Booth 1024), leading developer of billing, rating, order management, workflow and selling solutions for the communications industry, announces it will provide its cloud-based CostGuard® billing and OSS application using the Microsoft’s Azure platform to make global expansion for wholesale service providers faster and easier.

Responding to client needs, IDI leveraged its Microsoft Partner Program relationship to create a seamless solution that supports providers as they consider growth strategies into new markets at home and abroad. Using Microsoft’s Azure platform, CostGuard can be hosted in local data centers to ensure scalability and security, respect data sovereignty issues, and enable a rapid roll out for entering new markets.

With this deployment strategy, IDI is able to help new and established wholesale providers secure the benefits of a powerful consumption-based billing and OSS solution at a price point that is highly competitive. CostGuard offers a robust feature set for wholesale providers to manage and improve margins with enhanced recovery of unbillable revenue, rating granularity down to NPA/NXX, financial roll up by market, and support for mid-cycle price changes.

“There are many considerations when service providers expand outside their domestic market. With our cloud-based CostGuard billing and OSS solution and the Microsoft Azure platform, we are able to help providers eliminate their most pressing back office concerns and provide the speed-to-market that’s required to compete in a global communications marketplace,” said Tim Wrona, vice president, marketing and product strategy for IDI. “With IDI’s CostGuard billing and OSS solution, providers can enter the wholesale market or any other line of service with a back office solution that provides flexibility and agility no matter where and how they choose to do business.”
