CINCINNATI and MELBOURNE, Australia -- Convergys Corporation (NYSE: CVG), a global leader in relationship management, announced today that Mobileworld Operating Pty Ltd (trading as Crazy John's), has implemented a Convergys solution enabling the delivery of highly segmented new mobile services to Crazy John's customers. Crazy John's is Australia's largest independent mobile phone retailer.

To support Crazy John's transition from a wireless reseller to a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) with total control over the products and services it offers, the Convergys solution incorporates a 5-year agreement for Convergys to manage Crazy John's billing operations using Convergys' real-time rating and billing product, Infinys (r). In this implementation, Infinys is supporting all aspects of subscriber management including activation, mediation, rating, billing, inventory management, and pro-active messaging capability for all pre- and post-paid services.

"With the deployment of the Convergys solution, we are able to offer our customers even more tailored products and services," said Stephen Tuffley, Head of Operations for Crazy John's. "This rapid deployment of one of the industry's first single convergent pre- and post-paid platforms is a credit to our team and to Convergys' technology and professional services capabilities."

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.
