"CodeCatalog Integrator™ is a
comprehensive solution for translating
product and service codes among the many product and service catalogs
that comprise the communications supply chain."
CodeCatalog Integrator™ facilitates smooth automation of the
telecommunications supply chain enabling automated ordering, provisioning,
and service activation by translating product offerings into the terms
appropriate for each supply chain component.
Xintex CodeCatalog Integrator™
relates all product and service offerings across the supply chain from both
a business and technical perspective - clearly a benefit to any
Communications Service Provider.
A carrier's Product Management, Marketing, and Sales organizations are continually
responding to the marketplace (and need to be). The "what is" +
"what is wanted" needs to be put into the context of how it's
being made available (if it is available) from a pure business perspective
and related to the order taking system in an automated fashion. These
options and interrelationships need to be easy for business people to
establish and maintain. And, to provide effective automation, they must
leverage existing front office and back office systems rather than create
another link in the supply chain to integrate with.
The use cases are many - from the simple to the complex -
from the ability to provide a meaningful description for an otherwise
non-intuitive Universal Service Order Code (USOC) - to the ability to
translate these same USOCs with their associated field identifiers (FIDs)
to switch activation codes, wholesale ordering codes, and billing codes -
to the ability to create both simple and complex product offerings or
promotions quickly and responsively - to the ability to define the
necessary coding structures to assure rapid service delivery across the
supply chain - to the ability to facilitate Revenue Assurance.
"Xintex CCI™ places control of a streamlined Service
Delivery supply chain into the hands of business people so that they can
act quickly, nimbly, and flexibly in the increasingly complex and
competitive market with new products and services in any given geographic
area with the ability to respond quickly to competitive forces in the
Active Bonding™ in the Context-Based Supply Chain
To assure maximum success through effective automation, the integration
between the operational support systems must "speak the same
language". This goes beyond data mapping provided by out-of-the-box
solutions. Context is established so that (depending on the product or
service and where and how it gets provisioned and billed) translation is
done correctly each time without human intervention.
Each system and each operational context not only has its own
business rules and data structures that must be mapped - they also have
their own language or way of describing the products and services involved.
To achieve zero-touch flow-through, Active Bonding™ must be accomplished.
Active Bonding™ adds the context - it adds the language or code translation
necessary to achieve zero-touch flow-through that simplifies and
streamlines the service delivery supply chain. Active Bonding™ also
provides the ability to view any product catalog anywhere in the supply
chain through the appropriate context. Xintex CCI™ delivers Active Bonding™
by establishing rule sets that describe the simple or complex code
relationships among code catalogs. These rules can be modified and applied
dynamically in a non-intrusive manner.
Both facilities-based and resale carriers use multiple
processes and product catalogs supported by disparate internal (and often
external) organizations that must be continually synchronized to assure
success. Whether a carrier is the incumbent provider for a customer or an
acquiring provider and whether the service location is a new one or an old
one, through Active Bonding™ complete and correct order information can
flow through the Service Delivery Supply Chain without human intervention
nearly 100% of the time.
Automates Passive or Active Catalog Management Across the Supply
Marketing promotions, term commitments, volume commitments, as well as
other pricing packages can be defined by Marketing and Product Management.
Network Engineering can define the network elements necessary to provide
services. The relationships among the code catalogs can be defined so that
orders are made to the right supplier and the customer is billed. Xintex
CCI™ may be the central catalog facility updating other catalogs or be
updated from the other catalogs in the OSS - or a combination of both.
Automates Pre-Order Service Code Definition and
Detailed service definitions (USOCs and FIDs) are translated to a carrier's
Ordering and Billing codes. This can be accomplished directly from the
Customer Service Record or via manual input when a customer is being
acquired from an incumbent carrier.
Automates UNE-P and 3rd Party Ordering
Xintex CCI™ translates an incumbent's retail USOCs to wholesale USOCs when
UNE-P service order requests are being processed. Xintex
CCI™ also facilitates flow-through to 3rd party wholesale service
providers a carrier may use (e.g. voicemail services, directory services).
Automates Service Activation
Xintex CCI™ translates USOCs to Service Activation codes when a Service
Provider offers facility-based services.
Automates Billing Verification & Revenue Assurance
Xintex CCI™ may be used for billing verification and as a Revenue Assurance
audit tool to assure that customer billing is correct. Similarly, Xintex
CCI™ may be used to audit 3rd party telecommunications bills against their
own inventory records.
Depend upon Xintex CCI™ for the seamless management of the
codes and code catalogs across your supply chain…
