- PRESS RELEASE
Zain Group, a pioneer in mobile telecommunications in 8 markets across the Middle East and North Africa, announces its selection of Basset, the global market leader in interconnect billing, routing optimization and trading for the wholesale market, for the supply of a full Interconnect solution(TM).
Important factors in Zain Group's decision process were the identification of a platform in which all involved parts of the organization are able to work together as a team in one system; from interconnect billing and routing functions to quality management.
Zain Group found an integrated platform in Interconnect by Basset; which uses one data model and one data source for all users where the complete team will benefit from using the same terminology.
Zain Group will further strengthen its end-to-end business process for wholesale and interconnect services utilizing the platform, and establish the general operations team in a solid position to handle expected growth for years to come.
Henri Kassab, Director Roaming & Wholesale Zain Group, said, "With the start of our strategic project we seized the opportunity to choose the best solution for our partner agreements and settlement management processes. We chose to implement Basset's Interconnect solution knowing Zain Jordan and our former operations in Africa have won great results from doing so. Additionally, we valued being able to work closely with Basset regional services team."
Interconnect by Basset is a market-leading wholesale business management solution handling every kind of network traffic for local, regional and worldwide operators in a single, highly integrated platform, which provides highly efficient partner management, optimized traffic trading and routing through the network, accurate billing and settlement for all services including traditional voice, data, IP/content and GSMA roaming services.
Khalid El Hajji, VP & Regional account Director for Basset MEA, said, "As operators grow, the wholesale business either becomes an important revenue-generator, or an expensive cost center. Interconnect by Basset offers all operators - local, regional and global - the opportunity to optimize their carrier-to-carrier billing and settlements processes and we are proud for the confidence put in us and our technology by Zain Group in yet another strategic project."
