VIENNA, Va.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Recently shortlisted for Campaign of the Year in the 2013 Capacity Carrier Awards for iXLink, Telarix continues its campaign to full automation by announcing it has extended iXLink to include rate management for SMS. Telarix’s solutions, iXTools® and iXLink®, automate the end-to-end internal business processes for international operations.
“SMS is ever-growing, and with the complexities and business automation requirements starting to mirror voice, it’s becoming increasingly important for a carrier to have a peace of mind that the SMS business is being optimized”
The new SMS offering provides a modern and industry-leading platform to efficiently and accurately manage all aspects of a Service Provider’s international SMS wholesale business including agreement management, dial code management, rate upload and analysis, optimized routing, billing, and settlement. The SMS wholesale business is more complicated than other revenue streams, as the contractual obligation is often less strict or lacking in standards compared to voice, opening carriers up to the risk of arbitrage. Telarix’s automated solution reflects rate changes, quickly ensuring arbitrage is avoided. The solution also incorporates event-based rating for SMS call records, invoice generation for the accounts receivable process, and audit and reconciliation for the accounts payable process.
“SMS is ever-growing, and with the complexities and business automation requirements starting to mirror voice, it’s becoming increasingly important for a carrier to have a peace of mind that the SMS business is being optimized,” states Susan Wegmueller, Senior Director Product Marketing, iXLink. “The optimization realized through our solution ensures higher margins, protects the SMS revenue stream and provides automation across the supply chain.”
“Telarix has been a pioneer in offering carriers innovative business optimization solutions,” states Vic Bozzo, SVP Worldwide Sales and Marketing. “Extending our offerings to include an SMS Interconnect Solution is a natural extension and allows carriers to extend their iXTools and iXLink platform beyond voice and data, and into messaging services.”
