NJ, February 25, 2002 - Advanced Technologies & Services, Inc. (ATS),
based in Wayne, NJ, has developed a revenue assurance program focused on
helping troubled local phone companies increase revenue 5% - 30%. By
analyzing the current traffic on their switch network, ATS can use a
combination of proprietary software and consulting services to breakdown
revenue gaps caused by billing and switch translations errors. The analysis
requires no preliminary monetary commitment from the carrier. All ATS
compensation can be handled through a contingency plan, based on a
percentage of the recovered income.
the growing amount of local phone companies in dire need of revenue, ATS is
willing to take this bold step to help our industry rise from the current
downturn," said ATS CEO, Randall Guthrie. "By offering to work on a
contingency basis, ATS is prepared to risk its own revenue goals in order to
right the ship. However, we are confident we will find significant revenue.
Our process is proven, and we helped our client companies recover over $200
million in revenue last year."
ATS will find the revenue leaks in your network by analyzing and revealing
anomalies due to switch translations errors and intercarrier compensation
billing. ATS will then work with your network and revenue assurance teams to
correct the problems and implement a system that will proactively protect
revenue. The two chief technologies used in ATS' network integrity program
are SimCall and AMADEUS (AMA Dynamic Extractor of Usage Statistics).
software solutions will provide a solid foundation for struggling local
phone companies to increase revenue and reduce cost," relates Peter
Mueller, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "However, ATS does not
rely on products to solve problems. We have a history of asking the right
questions that lead to the core root of the dilemma; only then can we truly
provide services through a trusted partnership. At ATS, we are proud that of
the fact that our entire team is focused on finding new ways to help our
client companies achieve maximum revenue from their network. We hope by
offering this new package of services to phone companies at little or no
upfront cost, they will see the value and monetary gain from our network
SimCall is a call
simulation system designed to test the routing, charging and recording of
calls placed through your switched services network. The purpose of
performing these call simulations is to identify possible translation errors
within a switch. The translation errors flagged by SimCall during a
simulation enables a company to perform easy follow-up investigation and
resolution without using dial tones or generating telephone bills. The
result is an increase in billing accuracy, potentially saving millions of
dollars annually in lost revenue.
allows the user to tailor tests by defining the parameters of a test
scenario. Millions of calls may be simulated in a test. Test processing,
including report generation can be simulated and validated in a matter of
minutes. The user can easily vary the depth of this testing process by
choosing from SimCall's impressive array of predefined testing options.
is a tool for extracting
statistics from AMA and EMI data files. The web based, real time software
application filters AMA or EMI data into subsets based on user-defined call
characteristics. The software gives the user the capability to drill down
and examine a single call detail record or if the user defines, multiple
records. Some of the more successful areas analyzed in regards to reciprocal
compensation dispute resolution are:
AMADEUS is also capable
of extracting delta statistics based on comparisons of two data sets. This
enables translators to check AMA before and after corrections have been made
to a particular switch. This process will allow for verification of billing
accuracy, which is crucial in today's competitive telecommunications market.
Also, AMADEUS interactively produces reports, which can be exported to
Microsoft Excel and Access. This feature will allow the user to create
dynamic spreadsheets and graphics. AMADEUS is offered through license or
service bureau agreement.
