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.

  • Network Quality of Service: Proactive monitoring of voice traffic, handling and fixing network issues faster than the BICS customers react; proactive rerouting activities; spam, FAS, direct loops detection; CLI delivery issues treatment, etc.;
  • >IREG testing: to ensure stable roaming service between operators.

Business value

  • High flexibility, fast implementation and support, improved time-to-market;
  • Structured (layered) operation and 24/7 customer support (Tier 1 and Tier 2);
  • Customer satisfaction with Tier 1 and Tier 2 support exceeds 94%, with overall satisfaction reaching 96%;
  • Proactive support of client requirements: see the problem before the customer does;
  • Increased revenue due to proactive actions as compared to what could be earned without the QoS team;
  • An image of a reliable Telecom partner due to world-class quality of telecom solutions provided by Infopulse.

BICS is heartily satisfied with the fruitful cooperation established with Infopulse, quoting:

Our main focus is to provide our customers with the highest levels of quality, reliability, and interoperability. Therefore, we always pay a decent 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 a comparison of several options, BICS decided to extend the existing relationship with Infopulse to this area. 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 have made was the good one.– Ronald Ballet, Director of Strategic Partnerships & Outsourcing
