Monday, November 4, 2019, CAPE TOWN– Consistently lauded by its clients for creating exemplary customer experiences, digital enablement software provider Alepo is now on the shortlist for the coveted AfricaCom Awards 2019 for developing solutions that “put the customer first.”

Alepo has been shortlisted in the Delivering Excellence in Customer Experience category. Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on November 13, as part of the three-day AfricaCom conference being held from November 12-14 at CTICC in Cape Town.

Over the years, Alepo has played a strategic role in revolutionizing the African telecommunications landscape. Its clients include Tier 1 operators in key markets and nearly 30 deployments across the continent. This year, it has been recognized by the AfricaCom Awards for a project in West Africa and its success and role its software played in delivering top customer experience for new LTE data offers as well as legacy 3G packages.

“When our customer introduced LTE in Sierra Leone, it wanted to create modern, compelling, and relevant data offers. Their subscriber base included both feature phone as well as smartphone users, so we needed to deliver a compelling customer experience that cuts across a diverse set of complex legacy requirements. Alepo’s Data Network Monetization Solution (DNMS) offers our clients this flexibility in a converged platform,” said Derrick Gross, President, Alepo.

The fact that many users do not have smartphones in Sierra Leone underscored the need for a flexible system – a need fulfilled by Alepo DNMS. Alepo’s seamless integration with the legacy CRM enabled USSD support for customers using feature phones. Its PCRF’s dynamic, fine-grained policy management across all services and technologies optimally manages network resources to further amplify the customer experience.

“The challenge was building a modern experience for an emerging customer base, and traditional experience for others. Our platform lets IT or marketing teams swiftly create very unique, diverse, targeted data offers that can also be purchased with the same ease as traditional plans,” said Vishal Mathur, Vice President – Solution Integration, Alepo.

This year’s AfricaCom conference is expected to see attendance from the most prominent names in African telecoms. With 15,000 attendees, 450 speakers, and 500 exhibitors, it focuses on connectivity infrastructure, disruptive technologies, digital services or ICT strategy, and more. Aligning with the event’s objectives, the AfricaCom Awards acknowledge the achievements of companies, products and solutions, and people who contribute to improving connectivity in Africa and drive the region towards the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
