Netcracker Technology announced that Vivo, Telefónica Group’s Brazilian subsidiary, has successfully reached a major milestone in its multiphase digital transformation initiative conducted with Netcracker. This phase includes the initial migration to Netcracker’s Digital BSS Solution, which will help Vivo deliver a superior customer experience for B2B customers across multiple lines of business.
The digital transformation program will allow Vivo’s B2B customers to gain key benefits, including receiving their proposals faster and with an accurate quote by leveraging enhanced capabilities of automated configure-price-quote (CPQ) functionality; centralized product management; and full automation of the lead to order process. This solution will enable Vivo to accelerate its growth strategy through more rapid sales and bookings; shorter time to market for new services; and greater automation of key customer-facing processes. This upgrade is part of a larger, multiphase digital transformation effort that has already included successful revenue and service management transformations.
As part of this automation effort, Netcracker is also delivering a variety of solution integrations with Vivo’s existing systems and processes, including sales force automation, fraud management and security. Due to the enhanced functionality, automation and integration Netcracker is delivering, Vivo will be able to decommission a variety of legacy systems to create a more digital B2B systems environment while reducing cost and manual effort.
Key benefits of Vivo’s system upgrade include:
- A unified sales experience across B2B products and lines of business
- Automated B2B lead to order process with Configure-Price-Quote (CPQ)
- Centralized product management for accelerated time to market (TTM) for new and updated products and services
- Single view of B2B customers and products across lines of business
Vivo is the leading communications service provider in Brazil, delivering fixed-line and mobile voice, television and Internet broadband services to approximately 97 million customers across the country.
“Our partnership with Netcracker is important to our long-term vision for the company to deliver outstanding customer experiences and innovation,” said Andre Kriger, CIO at Vivo. “This milestone underscores the success of our partnership with Netcracker as we deliver digital capabilities and new services to our B2B customers.”
“Vivo is a true market leader that is constantly evolving. As a result, Netcracker has a tremendous opportunity to enable them to deliver the highest quality customer experience in the B2B segment,” said Fabio Gatto, General Manager, LATAM, at Netcracker. “We are proud to be an important part of Vivo’s digital transformation and vision for the future.”
