First of all, you will need to combine an enormous amount of data from all the various telecoms providers you are brokering, and transform it through the Diver integrator into a format that can be presented to your customers as an invoice for their telecoms usage. Whether it is fixed line, mobile, internet and data services, your clients will want to see all charges on one invoice.
Secondly, like any other business, you will need to be able to analyse the data you are processing and your Diver application for Management Information will provide you with powerful ad hoc reporting, as well as the presentation of graphical dashboards with access to underlying granular data.
In both cases there is an enormous amount of number crunching to be done.
Besides the revenues generated from the selling-on of telecoms services you will have a large variety of costs to analyse, and a need to compare revenues, costs and margins against budgets and compare providers with each other. Diver can integrate with data from most sources and present it back to you in one place.
You’ll also need to be able to manipulate some what-if scenarios – to see for example what effects changing the package rates might have on your revenues and margins. Diver gives you the tools to enable you to explore changes in rates and packages – before you make the final decision.
