BearingPoint//Beyond has announced that Altibox, a Norwegian broadband provider, is using its Infonova digital business platform to connect its growing business partner ecosystem of regional service providers across Norway and Denmark and broaden customer access to its expanding range of services including full fibre broadband, TV and media.
Using the BearingPoint//Beyond digital business platform, Altibox says it is able to standardise a central and harmonised value proposition for its nationwide service, as well as support and monetise its growing customer base. Altibox’s partners gain fast access to Altibox’s range of unique consumer and business services while at the same time being able to use the same platform to manage and grow their businesses independently.
The platform streamlines and automates customer orders, billing and product management, which in turn will reduce operating costs, improve efficiency and accelerate time to market for new customer activations and services. Real-time updates provide transparency for Altibox and its partners/customers. In the end, Altibox says it will deliver an enhanced and consistent user experience for all customers, across all partners. The platform simplifies and harmonises the billing landscape of Altibox and its regional service provider partners and manages the revenue share and monetisation across the full end-to-end ecosystem.
“Today’s digital ecosystems are hugely significant in shaping tomorrow’s market for digital services, and CSPs must be ready,” said Altibox CEO Thomas Skjelbred. “Establishing an expandable ecosystem of third-party partners and service providers is at the heart of our strategy, and it’s critical that we have the right technology platform in place to support it. With BearingPoint//Beyond, we have a partner that clearly understands our business model and goals, plus the expectations of our customers, and who we can rely on to continue to grow our partner ecosystem.”
“The Infonova platform provides us with an important competitive advantage in a very crowded market,” continued Skjelbred. “As well as being a secure foundation for us to succeed with our digital services.”
“Altibox is the Nordic region’s leading Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) service provider, and it understood the importance of the digital platform business model as a route to growth,” said Angus Ward, CEO of BearingPoint//Beyond. “We’re delighted to work with Altibox as they extend their market reach, expand their range of digital services and grow their business. Using our technology, Altibox can connect its regional service provider partners to a single central platform, streamline its operations and provide both customers and partners with greater transparency. We look forward to working with Altibox to expand its ecosystem to include other verticals and services, and to also support Altibox’s partners in launching innovative new products and services.”
