“This is an extremely important customer win for Intec,” said Kevin Adams, Intec’s CEO. “As one of the leading telecom companies in the region, Saudi Telecom Corporation serves as a role model for many operators in the Middle East, including domestic and international providers. We will work closely with the company to ensure that InterconnecT is successfully implemented across Saudi Telecom Corporation’s networks in time for the deregulation of the country’s telecoms sector.”

As Saudi Arabia deregulates its telecom sector, Saudi Telecom Corporation will require new capabilities to stay ahead of competition. Among these capabilities is a cost-effective billing solution that can manage different inter-operator settlement agreements. InterconnecT will provide this crucial business advantage by offering Saudi Telecom Corporation a technology that can bill and settle all services from a single platform, with full visibility of costs, revenues, and margins across all lines of business.
