Billing software provider Amdocs has signed a follow on order with Moscow-based telecommunications company Svyazinvest to start phase two of the billing transformation program at the Russian company's IT competence center.
Amdocs has completed phase one of the project, which aims to implement a unified billing system across the companies held by Svyazinvest, including the seven regional telecom operators and the international/domestic long-distance communications operator, Rostelecom. Svyazinvest is Russia's largest wireline telecommunications provider. Amdocs said it will implement and deploy, in 2006, a system designed to improve customer service and loyalty in "a growing and competitive Russian telecom market."
