Comverse, Alltel forge long-term contract

US-based Alltel Wireless has extended its relationship with Comverse with a five-year managed services contract to operate and support the operator's real-time billing environment for prepaid subscribers.

The deal is an extension of an existing agreement to manage the complete system operations and maintenance of Alltel's real-time billing solution.

Since its deployment last year, Comverse says its real-time billing has been providing Alltel with optimal means to penetrate new markets, while increasing long-term subscriber loyalty.

Leveraging real-time marketing and account management capabilities, Alltel can foster a one-to-one relationship with its prepaid subscribers and stimulate the uptake of value-added services.
