London-based satellite operator Inmarsat says it is further developing its relationship with CSG to deliver Cloud services and monetisation of its mobile broadband services.
As part of this multi-year agreement, Inmarsat is moving its billing and revenue management operations to a consolidated, cloud-based managed services model developed by CSG, replacing existing third-party and bespoke legacy solutions.
CSG is based in Colorado and was formed back in 1994 as Cable Services Group.
“For nearly 20 years, CSG has worked with Inmarsat to get the most out of our billing and revenue management operations, enabling the introduction of new products and services while increasing efficiencies across our business,” said David Thornhill, SVP/Group IT Inmarsat. “By moving to a cloud-based managed services model, CSG will foster a more agile, cost-effective approach to how we operate our retail and wholesale business while creating a sustainable model for future success.”
Inmarsat says by utilising the CSG managed services solution, the British operator will benefit from increased process agility, go-to-market flexibility, and access to precision insights across all operations, while streamlining billing operations and lowering operating expenditures that were associated with prior third-party solutions.
“As Inmarsat looks to advance satellite, airborne, and maritime connectivity across Europe and beyond, we look forward to continuing our long-standing partnership, supporting the optimisation of their billing and revenue management operations, while helping them minimise risk and lower operating costs,” said James Kirby, head of CSG’s EMEA business. “We are thrilled to expand our relationship with Inmarsat to help grow the business across their entire portfolio.”
CSG Systems Int’l, listed on NASDAQ, has operations over 120 countries and serves operators such as AT&T, Charter Communications, Comcast, DISH, Eastlink, Formula One, MTN and Telstra.
