banglalink has been pursuing an aggressive strategy of growth. In 2006 alone, banglalink grew its subscriber base by over 250%. However, banglalink identified that their existing activation solution would not be able to keep pace with their ambitions.

Comptel’s suite of products will also provide us the required flexibility and optimal time to market to tailor solution catering for our differentiated clientele base.”

Mr Mohamed Kamel Selim, Application Development & Billing Support Manager at banglalink, continues: “banglalink is a key-player in Bangladeshi telecom market in products and services delivery. By selecting Comptel Provisioning and Activation Solution, we want to continue in delivering innovative products and services fast and reliable to our customers and also cost effective. We rely on Comptel’s extensive experience and technical capabilities to achieve these targets and to continue as main key-player in the market.”

Comptel Provisioning and Activation Solution automates the service fulfillment processes. With a single interface, it covers the entire workflow – from service order to start of billing. At banglalink, Comptel Provisioning and Activation Solution will be used to activate both voice and data services, for postpaid and prepaid customers.

Mr. Kari Pasonen, Comptel’s Senior Vice President, Provisioning and Activation Business, concludes: “banglalink’s selection of Comptel is yet another proof of our leadership in fulfillment. It is also yet another success for Comptel on the subcontinent which is one of the fastest growing regions in the world for telecom services. And of course, this announcement reinforces our relationship with banglalink’s parent company, Orascom Telecom.”
