Sotelgui Selects Cerillion for New Interconnect Solution in Guinea

London, 2nd July 2008 – Guinean telecoms operator, Sotelgui is set to implement Interconnect Manager from convergent billing specialist, Cerillion Technologies to support billing, settlement and least cost routing for all of its interconnect agreements. The new contract represents an expansion of the relationship between the two companies. Sotelgui has been a customer of Cerillion’s CRM and Billing solution for five years.

Cerillion Interconnect Manager will provide Sotelgui with revenue assurance by enabling it to bill interconnect partners accurately and reconcile invoices received. The solution will also allow Sotelgui to re-rate actual traffic data against individual offers from partners in seconds, enabling it to choose the most cost-effective route in each case. 

In addition, Cerillion Interconnect Manager provides a universal formatter for partners’ tariff tables. This will allow Sotelgui to accept tariff tables in multiple formats, thus dramatically reducing the time needed to load data and enabling Sotelgui to manage many more partners than would otherwise have been possible.       

Louis Hall, Cerillion’s chief executive, says, “With growth in the African telecoms market continuing to escalate, the need to have an efficient interconnect system in place is becoming an increasingly urgent issue for African operators. By enabling the company to manage its interconnect partners efficiently and accurately, we are confident that Interconnect Manager will help Sotelgui to maximise the return on investment (RoI) for existing network assets and improve overall profitability.”
