Interactive Billing in 2020 - its all about Customer Experience.

As we enter this new decade of continued focus on enhancing Customer Experience (and knowing how difficult it is to retain existing customers, not to mention, how costly it is to win new ones!), we expect to see customer digital engagement headlining many CSP’s strategies.

The barriers to move from one supplier to another are steadily lowering and customers are voting with their feet when it comes to dissatisfaction over poor and complicated bill presentment, such as incorrect billing or a lack of transparency on charges or indeed hidden contract changes. Some CSPs do attempt to solve this problem in-house, by building internal platforms or incorporating the bill presentment as part of a much larger transformation project. Unfortunately however, evidence has proven that it is regularly underestimated the level of complexity involved in consolidating multiple billing feeds and the need for effective UX design-led platforms. By the time they get it to market, it’s often too late and the customer has moved on.

Personalising and simplifying digital billing communications enhances the customer experience by ensuring customers receive accurate and easy-to-follow bills. Proactive notifications on prorated charges, campaign roll-offs and end-of-contract notices, reduce inbound call centre costs and generate better customer engagement and loyalty. Transparency provided via interactive billing and personalised offers (based on previous usage or preferences) will deliver positive results in customer retention levels. Self-serve billing analytics, accessible by user-friendly dashboards, means that service providers can build that all-important customer trust, highlighting that there are no hidden costs or inaccurate charges, leading to longstanding relationships.

At Soft-ex, we deliver enhanced interactive billing experiences for the CSP’s b2b & b2c customers helping to retain customers and win new customers. Our innovative solutions are biller agnostic and we offer an alternative fast path to enhanced customer billing experience while de-risking a carrier’s digital transformation. We simplify the bill and make it customer-centric, getting the benefit to the customer faster, without the fuss.

WidePoint Partners with KoolSpan to Offer End-to-End Encryption for Phone Calls and Text Messages

WidePoint Corporation (NYSE American: WYY), the leading provider of Trusted Mobility Management (TM2) specializing in Telecommunications Lifecycle Management, Identity Management and Digital Billing & Analytics solutions and KoolSpan, the provider of TrustCall, have entered into a partnership through which WidePoint delivers KoolSpan’s cross-platform, end-to-end communication solution to WidePoint customers so that they can make phone calls and send text messages securely.

WidePoint has partnered with KoolSpan to resell TrustCall, the leading secure mobile communications platform to governments and enterprises globally that secures phone calls and messages with end-to-end encryption. TrustCall is an enterprise-grade solution that delivers high performance and HD quality encrypted audio and can be flexibly deployed via the cloud, on premise, or in hybrid form.

“KoolSpan’s TrustCall ensures that devices use end-to-end encryption for all communication paths, which is crucial to improving the security of global telecommunications networks,” said Jin Kang, WidePoint President and Chief Executive Officer. “By partnering with KoolSpan, we have immediately added a secure communication tool that is directly complementary to our product suite and a critical need for our federal and enterprise clients. We expect this partnership to give us an additional leg up over our competition as we continue to focus on expanding our presence as a leading provider of trusted mobility management services.”

Nigel Jones, KoolSpan’s Chief Executive Officer, stated: “WidePoint has a long history of successfully serving both federal agencies and enterprise clients, and by partnering with them, we’re able to leverage their reputation and relationships to serve a much broader customer base.”

“Global telecommunications networks are inherently insecure as has been well documented by cyber security experts in the U.S. Government and across the private sector. The threats, from surveillance of communications to theft of IP to corporate espionage, are posed by systemic vulnerabilities in the global telecommunications infrastructure that readily enable interception and monitoring of mobile communications, both voice and data,” said Elad Yoran, KoolSpan Executive Chairman. “The only viable solution to this problem is to use end-to-end (E2E) encryption for all communications. KoolSpan is excited to partner with WidePoint to provide TrustCall.“
