The Telecom Billing & Charging Landscape Is Changing: Is Your Business Ready?

Once upon a time, telecommunications referred almost strictly to phone bills. There was likely a monthly fee, combined with charges for the number of long-distance calls you made.

Moreover, we focus on compliant revenue recognition. But what happens after that invoice goes out the door and before revenue gets recorded? What occurs when collecting payments from customers?
