that will allow Tunisiana to consolidate and manage all of its partner
agreements from a single platform, allowing the provider to better leverage
competitive rates, minimize disputes, and reduce potential leakage.

on-time implementations and its deep knowledge of the requirements of the

demonstrate Interconnect’s robust ability to process millions of calls per day,
whilst providing a solution which can easily accommodate any future changes of
the business.

installed Interconnect and this was a contributing factor in the deal due to
the high level of satisfaction with the product.


We chose CSG due to its worldwide leading position in
the interconnection billing area with its ability to deploy a full suite of
products in the billing and OSS area,” stated Yves Gauthier, chief executive
officer of Tunisiana.

business and value-added services in a holistic fashion through reporting,
providing added visibility and control for enabling better business decisions,”
