Netcracker Receives Vodafone Oman’s Chairman Award for Champion Partner of the Year
Mobile Operator Recognizes Netcracker for Providing Expertise, Support and Partnership to Help Achieve Its Goals
WALTHAM, MA — March 29, 2023 — Netcracker Technology announced today that it has received the Chairman Award for Champion Partner of the Year from Vodafone Oman in recognition of its invaluable contributions during the mobile operator’s first year of operations. A partner from day one, Netcracker played a key role in supporting Vodafone to develop new products and services, expand its reach and strengthen its brand across the country. The award was presented to Netcracker during Vodafone Oman’s first anniversary celebration.
The Chairman Awards recognize the contributions of employees, working teams and business partners in Vodafone’s journey. In its first year, the recipients of the awards each played an instrumental role in the launch of a new-generation telco in Oman.
The third operator to establish operations in the Sultanate of Oman, Vodafone made its debut in March 2022 as a 100% fully digital operator in a highly competitive market. Vodafone initially selected Netcracker Digital BSS in a cloud deployment to deliver a superior customer experience and monetize innovative new services. Since then, Vodafone Oman has extended its relationship with Netcracker for analytics, DevOps processes and an integration layer to add to the operator’s data-driven capabilities, as well as managed services.
“As a new operator establishing a presence in the Sultanate, we selected Netcracker as a strategic partner from the very beginning to support our mobile network launch, enable fast time to market and help us to deliver a rich digital customer experience,” said Bader Al Zidi, CEO of Vodafone Oman. “We are proud of our partnership with Netcracker, who time and again has proven its commitment to excellence and unwavering focus on delivering value to our customers. I look forward to building on our success and exploring new opportunities for growth and innovation as we continue our journey of success in Oman.”
“We are truly honored and humbled to receive this recognition from Vodafone Oman,” said Benedetto Spaziani, GM at Netcracker. “We were proud to be an inaugural partner for a brand new mobile operator, and since then Vodafone Oman has continued to place its trust in us with additional projects and engagements, through which we aim to achieve continued success going forward.”
