Manx Telecom Secures BABT Approval Using Cerillion Billing Solution

London, UK, 7th June 2006 – Cerillion Technologies today announced that Manx Telecom, a wholly owned subsidiary of O2 and part of the Telefonica group, had become the first combined fixed and mobile telecommunications company in the world to gain BABT approval for its billing.

BABT – British Approvals Board of Telecommunications – is the standard recognised worldwide which gives customers an assurance of accuracy in billing and pricing for telecommunications products and services. “Gaining approval was a condition of our new Telecom license,” commented Mike Dee, Director of Finance, Manx Telecom. “Cerillion’s billing software supports all our fixed and mobile services and has played a vital role in us achieving this compliance.”

Manx Telecom worked in close co-operation with Cerillion staff to evaluate the existing billing operation, and identify and correct any areas that failed to meet the rigorous conditions laid down by the BABT Standard. By demonstrating that the bill production process achieved the high levels of accuracy and consistency required, approval was achieved in a comparatively short timeframe.

“By gaining BABT approval, Manx Telecom have once again shown their commitment to delivering the highest level of service to their customers” commented Louis Hall, CEO, Cerillion Technologies. “We are delighted to have helped them achieve this status, underlining the two companies’ close working relationship and the benefits of providing a pre-integrated billing solution.”
