Amdocs CEO Eli Gelman: We excel thanks to innovation and customer demands

Amdocs CEO and President Eli Gelman said that the customer experience management solutions provider excels thanks to its innovation and customer demands.

Speaking at InTouch Singapore 2013, Eli Gelman, president and CEO, Amdocs, said that the company will continue to innovate to give more solutions suitable for the Asia Pacific region.

Amdocs will not change CES 9, the newly launched solution that will be available for commercial deployment from this month. “But we will improve on it. We will have newer versions,” Gelman added.

“When we have competition and sophisticated customers, there will be focus on customer experience,” Gelman said. “We are working towards operator demands. We do not care whether it is video, data or voice. We do not care whether it is pre-paid or post-paid users.”

Though Amdocs has hundreds of patents, the company continues to be innovative. It recently opened an innovation center in associaton with SingTel in Israel. It is the second innovation center. The first one is with AT&T, American telecom giant.

Amdocs focuses on few select areas. “We excel in our focus areas. That’s why we are growing — a $3 billion + company.”
