WALTHAM, MA — January 17, 2023 — Netcracker Technology announced today that Schurz Communications, a U.S.-based broadband media group and cloud managed services provider, will upgrade to Netcracker Digital BSS to enhance customer service quality and deliver efficiencies to its contact center operations.

Schurz, which consists of a number of properties, including Antietam Broadband in Maryland, Burlington Telecom in Vermont, Hiawatha Broadband in Minnesota, Long Lines Broadband in Iowa and Orbitel Communications in Arizona, will benefit from the Agent Desktop feature of Netcracker Customer Management, part of Netcracker Digital BSS.
