Vitria’s Operational Intelligence Solution also delivers continuous real-time visibility and insight via Web 2.0 dashboards running over existing processes to monitor and control mobile phone or other types of recharges. Andorra Telecom leverages Vitria’s Operational Intelligence platform, and professional services to deliver the required functionality on time and on budget.

Architecture

Andorra Telecom collects orders using Siebel’s CRM application, manages billing with Geneva Billing System, and provisions and activates services with Vitria process models developed to support the multiple services delivered to the customer’s home. Vitria’s platform is the engine that allows processes to run across these systems with a minimum of human interaction, a high degree of visibility, and a lack of disruptions.

The Result: High Availability, High Customer Satisfaction

The results of the on-time, on-budget implementation so far have been impressive. Andorra Telecom is achieving 88% automation for corporate customers and 96% automation for residential customers at very high volumes. As the processes for new services mature, they expect to reach a 100% rate of automation for customer services. As the company grows, these automation achievements will allow revenue to scale without associated cost increases.

The results have been positively reflected within Andorra Telecom’s service level agreements. On average each order requires only 23 minutes for processing which includes network inventory updates, network activation and billing, and customer appointment setting. Changes to existing services are even quicker. These performance numbers are achieved at levels of between 150 and 200 orders per hour.

“We have selected Vitria´s Operational Intelligence Solution because of its dashboards, and it allows us to access and monitor layers in different projects, in real time. The end user has much more visibility over the critical metrics and actionable capacity over the corresponding processes.” – Albert Pubill CIO, Andorra Telecom
