ST. LOUIS -- Amdocs (NASDAQ: DOX), the leading provider of customer experience systems and services, today announced that MetroPCS, a flagship brand of T-Mobile US, has deployed the Amdocs Enterprise Payment Processing solution. The solution, which has already been deployed and achieving strong results, is part of a strategic multi-year agreement to enable MetroPCS to enhance and optimize its customers’ electronic payment options, while reducing the operational costs associated with customer payments.

MetroPCS is using Amdocs Enterprise Payment Processing solution, a multi-channel payment gateway service, to offer its customers electronic payment options across all channels including Interactive Voice Response (IVR), web portal, SMS or through an agent in the contact center. The solution also enables “smart tender steering” which processes payments using the most cost-effective transactional method to minimize transaction fees and maximize revenue. The private cloud-based solution is run from an Amdocs managed services data center and interfaces with multiple banks and other financial institutions, as well as contact center services.

“Service providers are eager to exploit the full potential of mobile payments their customers are demanding, but are concerned about the challenges such as transaction fees impacting their bottom line, or customers not understanding how to correctly make a payment,” said Eric Updyke, president of the North America region at Amdocs. “Our Enterprise Payment Processing solution, deployed quickly at MetroPCS, allows MetroPCS to meet these challenges with a single, secure, private cloud-based payments processing solution managed by Amdocs. Not only will this provide greater convenience for customers, it will keep operational and transaction costs under control, while also allowing for flexibility as the electronic payments space continues to evolve rapidly.”

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
