  • Ericsson will converge the IT transformation of the charging and billing system of BASE Company
  • BASE Company will have one converged solution for all subscribers and services
  • The system allows BASE Company to manage their end-to-end business with a single system

Belgian operator BASE Company has selected Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) to implement Ericsson's Charging & Billing in One solution.

With Ericsson's solution, BASE will be ready to support all retail and wholesale programs defined by marketing in a flexible, agile and simplified way.

Ericsson's charging and billing solutions are currently supporting more than 2 billion subscribers worldwide. Ericsson Charging & Billing in One allows operators to manage the end-to-end business, including charging, billing and customer care, for all types of customers in a single real-time system.

Ericsson Charging & Billing in One hides complexity from the end user so they can move seamlessly from one service to another and try them out as they choose. Customers benefit from the clarity and convenience of a single bill for all their services, as well as a single system supporting customer care.

Jos Donvil, CEO BASE Company, says: "As mobile centric player we are a truly mobile and digital company in all possible aspects. We believe the future is mobile and we are there to enable our customers to live a truly mobile life. Therefore we keep looking for new digital solutions that we can offer our customers to get even more out of their smartphones and other mobile devices."

Valter D'Avino, Head of Ericsson in Region Western and Central Europe, says: "This implementation reconfirms our position as IT partner for BASE Company. We are glad to be entrusted this project to support BASE with the transformation of their IT to achieve an even better customer experience."

Operators need to offer service flexibility and choice as well as real-time service controls for their customers. At the same time, they need to reduce the complexity and cost of the IT environment that delivers it. Ericsson Charging & Billing in One solves that problem.

This comprehensive portfolio also enables Ericsson to guide operators through a transformation that aligns their business processes with their networks and IT for optimal efficiency.
