Business Challenge

Being an innovative market leader, BICS needs to ensure their customized business solutions are supplied with timely, reliable and efficient support and services. European domestic IT services market could not satisfy the growing needs of the large telecom provider. Another critical factor was the lack of reliable IREG testing vendors. BICS started looking for the suppliers of the Telecom Operations Services among the existing outsourcing companies, but were unable to find an IT vendor they could trust until they came across Infopulse in 2010.

Our main focus is to provide our customers with the highest levels of quality, reliability, and interoperability. Therefore, we always pay close attention to the testing of all our services. In order to sustain the growth of our business, BICS has been looking to extend its capacity in IREG testing and to combine this with pro-active maintenance tasks in the network. After the comparison of several options, BICS decided to extend the existing relationship with Infopulse to this area. The main drivers for this decision have been the flexibility and understanding of our needs by Infopulse, and the quality and cost of the resources we found. The first six months of our collaboration confirmed that the choice we made was a good one.
