Zain Redefines the Customer Experience
With a mission to equip businesses, residents and the government with the latest technologies, Zain KSA and Netcracker work hand-in-hand to provide customers with a differentiated experience.
Zain KSA was the first operator in Saudi Arabia to launch 5G, which reaches almost three-fourths of the population of the country. To realize its vision of a hyper-connected 5G world, Zain KSA initiated a multi-pronged approach that included a large digital transformation project to turn its legacy BSS into a unified and 5G-ready digital ecosystem. This includes providing reliable support for the next wave of innovation, including IoT, robotics, AI/ML, blockchain, big data, drones and augmented reality (AR).
The technological breakthroughs being accomplished are already providing Zain KSA’s B2C customers with rapid music downloads, clear video streaming, innovative gaming, and seamless social media experiences, while their B2B customers are benefiting from greater efficiency, lower operational costs, and exceptional customer experiences. As the foundation for Zain KSA’s digital transformation, Netcracker’s cloud-based Digital BSS is enhancing the operator’s advanced cloud infrastructure, enabling the operator to lower their total cost of ownership (TCO) and accelerate time to market.
Zain KSA’s impressive 5G network growth has led the operator to provide many advanced services, such as network slicing within Zain KSA’s 5G core environment and across the entire network, giving the opportunity to create new revenue streams. Zain is also centralizing its customer data across all communication channels, which will provide customers with a truly personalized and unique experience.
Together, Netcracker and Zain KSA are taking digital personalized customer experiences to a new level and delivering rapid innovation, 5G monetization scenarios, fast launch of digital offers and the ability for future growth and expansion.
