Capgemini Wins Contract to Migrate Billing Platform for T-Mobile

30 April 2008

Capgemini, one of the world's foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, today announced that one of its Dutch subsidiaries, Capgemini Nederland BV, has been selected to migrate the billing platform of T-Mobile in the Netherlands to the latest LHS software version, BSCS iX R2. The new platform aims to provide much greater flexibility and to reduce the Total Cost of Ownership.

This system migration is part of the strategic merger program at T-Mobile Netherlands BV and Orange Nederland NV. Capgemini will be responsible for the overall system integration of the new billing solution and the migration from the legacy BSCS solution to the new iX platform. Relying on Capgemini’s global delivery model, Rightshore®, the project will be led cooperatively onsite in the Netherlands, in Paris and offshore in Capgemini’s Billing Centre of Excellence located in India. LHS, a long term partner of Capgemini, will provide the required customisation and the necessary professional services to support this implementation as a sub-contractor to Capgemini.

Gerrit Dekker, Executive Vice-President Information Technology of T-Mobile Netherlands BV: “This is a multi-faceted project, with great impact on our organisation; billing is, after all, one of telecom operators’ core processes. Because of this, transparency and mutual trust between the parties is, to us, paramount..”

Greg Jacobsen, Capgemini Global Sector Leader Telecommunications, Media and Entertainment: “This new billing project with T-Mobile strengthens our position in the telecommunications sector and is another example of the momentum in one of our key domains of expertise: Capgemini’s Billing Excellence Program.” He adds: “Capgemini’s aim is always to transform our clients into optimally performing, flexible organisations. In T-Mobile, we have a business partner whose preference for innovation is a perfect match to our mission.”

Capgemini’s Billing Excellence is trusted today by over 100 operators across the world to implement their mission-critical billing systems.

Detlef Purschke, Division Officer Europe, LHS: “We are delighted by T-Mobile Netherlands' choice to migrate to the latest version of BSCS, iX Release 2, a best in class billing platform necessary for the very competitive Dutch market. Over the last two years, we have delivered - together with Capgemini - a significant number of billing projects and our combined expertise and trustful relationship will benefit T-Mobile Nederland BV.”
