A constant pressure to convert orders to cash creates pressure which in itself cause errors. You need to have a machine speed accuracy and consistency to be effective.
As an operator, you will also cause a Customer Experience degradation if this process runs slowly or, it doesn’t deliver the service your customer expects. Reputational impact, lost revenue and compensation can result.
Integration with CRM, Cramer and other platforms were necessary to help this Customer fully automate the Activation process.
The Customer needed configuration consistency and accuracy to help manage revenue, 3rd party cost and instruction, as well as ensure Customer satisfaction. This operator had begun to build a poor reputation for speed of service, so brand was being damaged by poor operational efficiency.
Activations could be a new build, a build variation (change), or could be fed into a Cease process.
This project was significant in its complexity from the design phase. Similarly, it contained an atypical level of risk for the Operator too. The automation solution included ‘southbound’ connectivity directly into the Network, which was the first automation project doing so for this Operator.
The Solution was a ‘layer cake’ build. The Automation was crafted as mini builds, each of which was tested, then each mini-build was daisy chained in to a main build of Automation.
Given the level of risk and complexity, this Solution was built in a very mindful way, and all stakeholders, including Executive, were engaged.
The solution took 25 months to design, build, test and fully deploy. This was a conscious decision, partly to avoid rushing out the solution before confidence was completely built, but it cleverly allowed for key milestones inside the Customer’s business to mature.
The Customer events triggered a material increase in scale and a re-use, re-purpose of the solution with little modification. This had a valuable, though intangible benefit of reduced R&D re-solutioning, and an increased Time-to-Value for the 2nd deployment elsewhere within the group.

Our software alone is not the reason why people buy CORTEX, we know what really matters to CSPs. Discover the difference with We Are CORTEX
Easy to use and quick to master
We have tools that can automate the simple areas of our business but we need a platform that can deal with all of our needs not just the easy stuff.
Deliver business value quickly
I have a long term technology strategy but I need my automation to start delivering quickly and cannot wait for all of the legacy systems.
Enterprise-grade automation platform
We want to automate business critical operations and we need central controls and governance around our automation estate to avoid citizen-developers running.
As a dedicated CSP business we deep dive into every area of a CSP, take a look at some of our other use cases here.
Customer billing relies on an extensive underlying infrastructure to monitor, record, maintain data and apply required contractual parameters for accurate billing.
The current IT stack used within the circuit writing process required manual data input leading to inefficiencies.
Manual network fault management on trouble tickets for network infrastructure that were raised from customer complaints, by the operations teams.
The customer wanted to maximise the quality of their international voice network services whilst minimising costs.
Voice Resource Management was a manually performed process, from order to allocation and further provision.
