Rapidly expanding Communications Service Providers face a common challenge: How do their billing and OSS systems scale up with their increasing footprint and customer base?  The ideal answer is they turn to the right solution provider like IDI Billing Solutions to reshape their billing, automation and workflow platform, eliminating the need for a significant investment in new systems or resources.

Setting the foundation for growth, success

Perhaps the biggest challenges facing CSPs are the technical obstacles that coincide with periods of quick growth. Rapid expansion is often a double-edged sword in this regard, creating lucrative business opportunities while raising some significant logistical concerns.

Moving into new markets and reaching a larger base of customers typically requires a major overhaul to existing billing systems – not to mention an increase in employee headcount to handle additional workload. The high cost of such an investment often undercuts the potential revenue, making business expansion fiscally impractical.
