WAKEFIELD, Mass., Sept. 17, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Comverse ® (Nasdaq:CMVT), the global leader in business enablement through BSS, mobile Internet, value-added and managed services, will highlight how managed services from the BSS vendor can help increase top line and improve business results at Managed Services World Congress 2012.

In the Managed Services World Congress conference session entitled Managed Services Improve Your Top Line on September 18, Yossi Abraham, Vice President Sales & Marketing, Comverse Global Services, will draw from global success stories and industry research to illustrate how managed services empower communication service providers (CSPs) around the world to open up rich revenue opportunities and business models, and speed time-to-revenue by as much as 30%.

Improving Profitability through Managed Services

"Today's increasingly complex and sophisticated IT systems require greater expertise to extract their full potential," said Jecka Glasman, Senior Vice President, Global Services Business Unit for Comverse. "Because technology vendors know their technology best and are most able to maximize utilization of system capabilities, the Managed Services market is growing rapidly worldwide. Field-proven to boost efficiency, "factory-backed" managed services bring CSPs a broad range of advantages."

"In service activities that we manage, we see CSP demand growing for services that improve the user experience, drive growth and improve the top line. Accelerating the time from idea to launch is one of the ways we help CSPs stream more revenues in a faster manner," Glasman continued. "Our skilled operational teams also increase billing accuracy, reducing customer calls to call centers and accelerate the bill-to-cash cycle."

A leader in operational and growth-enabled services with unparalleled product and market knowledge, Comverse draws from more than 20 years of extensive global experience with more than 450 customers.
