ST. LOUIS -- Amdocs (DOX), the leading provider of customer experience solutions, today announced that US Cellular, the fifth largest wireless carrier in the United States, has entered into an agreement with Amdocs to manage the operations of a range of its business and operational support systems (B/OSS). The five-year agreement covers key B/OSS areas including service activation, customer care and retail interaction, as well as billing for both business and retail customers.

Amdocs will provide 24/7 system support including tier 2 services and application support. Amdocs will also manage US Cellular's billing operations for both pre- and postpaid customers, spanning 3G and 4G (LTE) networks in some 100 markets in North America.

"This agreement with Amdocs is expected to provide us with improved operating efficiencies as well as enhanced system support capabilities that further enable our goal of delivering a superior customer experience," said John Cregier, vice president of information technology at US Cellular.

"This new agreement demonstrates our ability to deliver greater value to US Cellular by assuming responsibility for managing and maintaining their B/OSS systems," said Eric Updyke, group president of systems integration and operations at Amdocs. "Having Amdocs manage these mission-critical applications in production, in addition to the development and testing services that Amdocs has been providing to US Cellular to enable new business functionality, will help US Cellular to extract the maximum value from their B/OSS systems in support of their customer-centric strategy."

Today's announcement comes four years after Amdocs announced that US Cellular had selected the Amdocs CES product suite to transform its business. Amdocs has been delivering managed services to service providers around the world for 30 years, and today supports more than 500 million subscribers in a managed services model.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
