New York, NY, August 24, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- B2B Soft announced today that Cycle30, a provider of hosted order-to-cash billing services, has selected Wireless Standard for the point-of-sale system deployment at GCI, one of the nation’s premier telecommunication providers and the second largest wireless carrier in Alaska.
Cycle30 selected the B2B Soft platform to complete the wireless point-of-sale function in its order-to-cash platform specifically for all of GCI’s 33 retail locations in fall 2011. Cycle30 provides wireless operators such as GCI with a turnkey platform for scalable and reliable converged billing that includes convergent charging, rating and balance management for existing and emerging services across a variety of markets.
B2B Soft’s Wireless Standard, the industry’s premier point of sale and business management platform, has been completely integrated with Cycle30’s billing engine. The result is a modular system with a range of business functions that include customer management, service fulfillment, billing and revenue management, service assurance, integrations, inventory management and business intelligence tools—in short, all of the back-office system flexibility and scalability today’s wireless providers need to compete and win.
“We sought a system that would integrate all of GCI’s stores with the Cycle30 hosted billing platform, and B2B Soft was a great choice,” said Wendy Gonzalez, Cycle30 vice president of products and services. “Implementing Wireless Standard throughout 33 retail locations will tie together all of GCI’s wireless offerings along with instant access to the latest supported products, plans, integrations, handset insurance and credit card processing. The company should see increased efficiency in sales, customer, and inventory management as GCI and its stores work off one central system.”
“It’s incredibly important today for wireless carriers and their retailers to have a unified platform that’s adept at handling the wide variety of products and services they offer while meeting customer demand and expectations,” says Gary Khabinski, CEO of B2B Soft. “Their success hinges on providing exceptional customer service and ensuring customer satisfaction with the process every step of the way—finding the best choices and options that are specifically relevant for each individual customer. Cycle30 is a partner that knows how important integration is for its customer at every level. They’ve selected Wireless Standard for GCI because it covers all the bases, and they understand that it’s not just the delivery of their services that’s important, but how service itself is delivered.”
