Slovak Telekom has extended an existing agreement with NetCracker that sees the NEC-owned vendor provide billing services for its mobile customers.

The deal will mean NetCracker bringing the operator’s fixed and mobile billing processes onto a single, end-to-end platform.

The vendor, which has provided wireline billing for Slovak Telekom for several years, said the consolidated system would be less expensive to maintain than running two separate systems in parallel.

The operator has 2.2 million mobile customers, 898,000 fixed lines, 546,000 broadband accesses and 461,000 TV customers.

Branimir Maric, CTIO at Slovak Telekom, said: “The benefits presented by NetCracker’s Revenue Management solution across our fixed billing processes over the years are enough to give us the confidence to expand those capabilities into our mobile billing operations as well.

“We are excited to bring our mobile and fixed billing onto a single platform, which will allow us to reduce sales costs and operating expenditure and generate additional revenue opportunities.”

Last year, NetCracker won billing deals with Telefónica, Turkcell, Bulgaria’s Vivacom and Andorra Telecom.

Slovak Telekom is owned by Deutsche Telekom, which last year acquired the remaining 49 percent stake in the operator that it did not already own.

This week, Milan Vašina took over the CEO reins of Slovak Telekom after moving from T-Mobile Czech Republic.

The previous incumbent, Miroslav Majoroš, has moved on to lead DT’s Romanian opco but retained his Chairman position at Slovak Telekom.
