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.”

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.
