These support and automate the individual business processes from order to cash for telecommunications operators and utility organizations such as integrated service delivery, billing and settlement, mediation, and output management.

Datamatics Global Technologies shall contribute its full design and development capabilities, as also support and maintenance of the business support and other IT systems deployed in Telecoms operations. Furthermore, Datamatics Global Technologies brings in its expertise in document management solutions for the settlement of the business process "Procure to Pay".

Datamatics Global Technologies will bring the BSS product development ahead while Devoteam Danet will be providing consultancy to the clients on site, integrating the systems and offering the relevant professional services. Thus, the two business partners will be in a position to fully concentrate on their core businesses, and to jointly extend the BSS solutions into new markets. In addition to the telecommunications and utilities business segments, industry-specific solutions are being developed for segments like the financial services, media or any organization where billing and payment reconciliation occurs in high volumes.

Through the partnership, the BSS solutions will be marketed globally.
