AsiaInfo (ASIA) has signed a contract with Shanghai Mobile to provide AsiaInfo's IN-BOSS billing software solution to support the carrier's real-time monitoring of prepaid calling charges.
Shanghai Mobile provides subscribers with a variety of prepaid calling services including the ShenZhouXing and Easycom calling card. Faced with an increasing number of overdue and unpaid subscriber bills, Shanghai Mobile will implement AsiaInfo's IN-BOSS billing software solution in order to reduce its billing costs and further improve its network management efficiency.
The software will also provide the carrier with a number of real-time services including monitoring, billing, rebating, accounting, and information inquiry processing and management.
As a means of preparing for the imminent implementation of 3G systems, Shanghai Mobile will begin the gradual transfer of all prepaid services over to the BOSS system.
