Over the last few weeks, Yemen has imported a new billing telecom system to replace the traditional billing system which has been used for 20 years.
This is to cope with state-of-the-art technologies in the context of the telecommunication and IT services.
The new telecom-billing project, estimated at US $2 million has and inbound system where a subscriber can inquire about his bill using the number (115) without fixed subscription value. It also has an outbound system where subscribers are informed of bill value and a voice message is sent to them informing them of things like service disconnection.
The new billing system is related to sales, operation, billing, and telecom centers.
General Director of the General Corp. for Wire and Wireless Telecom, Kamal Hussien al-Jabri, said the Telecom Corp. has initiated its activities since March.
“Strenuous efforts have been made in cooperation with the Nibotic International, a leading company in the consultant services, IT and integrates system,” al-Jabri said.
