With this global offering, CSG brings together its world-class portfolio of solutions—including its award-winning CSG Singleview convergent charging and billing platform; the world’s leading wholesale billing platform, CSG Wholesale Business Management Solution (WBMS), and its direct to consumer content monetization platform, CSG Content Direct—to address the need for CSPs to lower costs, transform their operations and create agile ways to support their customers.
With this flexible delivery model, CSPs can rely on CSG to easily manage complex customer and revenue management processes including on-premise, off-site at CSG’s facilities, offshore, and cloud-based options. CSG has established managed services Centers of Excellence in Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East, and Africa as well as Central and Latin America regions and has deployed in-region expertise to support the unique needs of its global clients.
The expansion of CSG’s managed services offering to a global market is a natural step for the company which has a 30-year heritage as a trusted partner developing, managing and evolving its comprehensive portfolio of solutions for Tier 1 CSPs in North America.
“It is in CSG’s DNA to apply its heritage of cloud-based convergent charging and billing in new ways that empower our clients to evolve their business models,” said Alam Gill, Senior Vice President, Managed Services at CSG International. “With CSG’s managed services, we apply our expertise to remove the technical complexity of delivering business improvement for our clients, using award-winning solutions that support the operations of the majority of today’s top CSPs worldwide.”
According to research conducted by Informa Telecoms & Media and published in January 2013, 87% of CSPs indicated that they already work with, or intend to work with, a BSS managed services provider in the next three years. In addition, a key theme emerged from their research that CSPs’ expectations for the value that managed services will provide has increased over previous years.

Domain expertise and an understanding of the CSP business are now as important to CSPs as cost,” said Kris Szaniawski, Principal Analyst, Informa Telecoms & Media. “CSPs are faced with managing increasingly complicated infrastructure to support new devices and services. As a consequence, CSPs are increasingly prepared to work closely with trusted partners - with managed services providers who have resources and expertise to manage complex BSS structures in a way that brings products and services to market faster and rationalizes legacy networks more effectively."
