Telecom goes live with commerce platform on prepaid mobile service

The platform will enable Telecom customers to buy and self-manage their product portfolio in one place across digital channels.

Telecom has gone live with the Hybris commerce platform on its prepaid mobile service.

The platform will enable Telecom customers to buy and self-manage their product portfolio in one place across digital channels. It will also supports the smartphone app that itemises activity by voice, text and data, and includes alerts and notifications options.

Post-paid mobile, fixed line and broadband services will launch on the platform in the coming months.

According to Telecom, the deployment of Hybris software, which is an SAP company, is part of a much larger reengineering programme. This is a major technology change programme that, among other things, is meant to enable Telecom to improve its speed-to-market and drive targeted sales campaigns.

“We are building user friendly interfaces which have a consistent look and feel across all channels and devices including online, in-store, mobile, mobile apps, tablet and call centre, all giving a delightful customer experience,” explained Claire Barber, GM of change and technology at Telecom.

Graham Jackson, senior vice president, Hybris APJ said, “We’re excited Telecom chose Hybris to help extend the range of services to their customers and tailor those offerings to individual requirements. Hybris has an excellent track record in the telecoms sector having worked with some of the largest providers in the world and we were able to bring this experience and expertise to Telecom.”

Other Hybris telecom clients include Vodafone, Three, Phones 4u, EE, E-Plus and Ericsson.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
