New End-to-End Order Management Solution Builds on Netcracker’s Configure, Price, Quote and Product Catalog Capabilities


Allstream, Canada’s all-business communications provider, has agreed to transform its end-to-end order management and service fulfillment capabilities using its comprehensive next-gen innovative Netcracker 9 suite.

Allstream is a Canadian leader in IP communications and the only national communications provider that works exclusively with business customers of all sizes with a coast-to-coast national IP fiber network. This agreement adds Netcracker’s Customer Information Management, Service Order Management and Service Inventory solutions to Allstream’s current suite of Netcracker products, which include Customer Order Management, Product Information Management and Service Information Management.

This new end-to-end order management solution builds on Allstream’s use of Netcracker’s configure, price, quote and product catalog capabilities. It will support several major product lines.

“Our past success with Netcracker Technology made selecting them a natural choice for this project,” said Ray Lahoud, Vice President of Network & Information Technology Services at Allstream. “We look forward to leveraging Netcracker’s expertise, delivery capabilities and proven solution assets.”

Netcracker will replace a legacy order management system, integrate the new components with several systems supporting the service fulfillment process and deliver solution configuration and testing for Allstream.

“Our ongoing partnership with Allstream is a strong example of how Netcracker’s powerful BSS/OSS capabilities are helping our customers accelerate, monetize and improve the ways in which they create and deliver sophisticated and complex services for their customers,” said Sylvain Seignour, Vice President Americas at Netcracker. “We look forward to helping Allstream strengthen its competitive position in the market for business communications and connectivity services.”
