Ukraine’s Datagroup Selects Comptel Fulfillment Solution

Comptel Corporation (OMX Helsinki: CTL1V), the leading vendor of dynamic Operations Support System (OSS) software, announced today that Datagroup, a fixed, broadband and satellite service provider in Ukraine, has selected Comptel Fulfillment Solution to provision their network and activate services faster and more accurately. The Comptel Fulfillment Solution is a suite of pre-integrated inventory and provisioning modules to cover end-to-end service fulfilment functionality from order capture to activation and reconciliation. Initially, the focus is to automate service delivery for the residential market, especially fixed voice and broadband access services. Subsequently, the project will extend to value added services as triple- and quad-play, as well as services targeting the business market.

Until now, Datagroup did not have a fulfillment solution, as Datagroup’s focus was on the B2B (business to business) market and each installation was unique. However, Datagroup is now moving into the B2C (business to consumer) market, aiming to gain a substantial foothold in the market by providing triple-play services faster and more reliably than the competition.

To achieve this, Datagroup has picked the complete functionality of the Comptel Fulfillment Solution, including Comptel Provisioning and Activation, Comptel Number and Identifier Management, Comptel Inventory and Comptel Inventory Mediator, which allows the inventory to be synchronized with the network. The solution will help Datagroup with every aspect of fulfillment, from the roll-out of fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) to the reliable provisioning and activation of services on the network.

Mr. Danchenko, CEO of Datagroup says: “We want to offer innovative services fast and reliably to our customers. We chose Comptel because they offered a comprehensive off-the-shelf fulfillment solution, outstanding OSS experience and good adaptation to our local requirements. Both the technical capabilities of the solution and Comptel’s excellent track record were key factors for us, as we needed a fast way to enter the B2C market.”

Mr. Harri Palviainen, Executive Vice President, Inventory Business and Deputy CEO for Comptel, concludes: “The Comptel Fulfillment Solution is a modular solution, but by selecting all the modules, Datagroup has shown that they believe that there are significant benefits to choosing a pre-integrated solution, including better value-for-money and improved time-to-market for the deployment of the solution.”
