MANILA | MUMBAI, November 23, 2017: Tata Consultancy Services (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, today announced Eastern Communications, a leading enterprise service provider in the Philippines, has successfully implemented TCS HOBS, TCS’ next-generation platform for subscription based digital businesses.

Eastern Communications chose TCS as strategic partner to replace its B2B segment offerings. TCS HOBS was selected to help enable Eastern Communications to modernize legacy systems, expand service offerings, enhance customer experience and create new revenue streams. Adopting a platform-based service model gives Eastern Communications, one of the Philippines’ most established telecom operators, a strategic advantage in a competitive market.

Emmanuel D. Caido, Head of IT, Eastern Communications: “A new paradigm of innovation, agility and customer-centricity is reshaping the communication industry, and more than ever, you need to have the best digital technology and expert capabilities enabling your strategy.  We selected TCS based on their proven track record in the global telecom industry. TCS has been a great partner in our digital journey, helping Eastern Communications modernize its legacy billing system.”

TCS migrated 27 services and over 4,000 B2B product offerings to TCS’ HOBS, including voice, data and managed service. The programme was completed in 18 months. As a result, Eastern Communications is now able to manage the customer-lifecycle across product management, sales, service assurance, revenue management & operation and faster provision. Customer experience is better personalized, and products and services are launched at a much faster rate than previously. Highlights include an 80% improvement in time required to launch of new business, 70% of payments now done via bulk.

Vikram Singh, Country Manager, TCS Philippines: “We are proud to have been selected as the technology partner to help the Philippines’ premier communications provider capture new revenue streams and synergies with partners and optimize various touch points in the customer lifecycle. Eastern Communications is now more agile and better-enabled to take on new business opportunities as a digitally transformed and future-ready enterprise.”

TCS HOBS V6.0 was launched in March 2017 at Mobile World Congress. According to TCS, it addresses the needs of a service provider or any digital enterprise focused on subscription based services, to simplify their processes, enhance customer experience and enable rapid launch of new digital services. Based on an Open Architecture, the platform provides omni-channel engagement, ubiquitous identity, customer insights, collaborative selling, dynamic orchestration and transparent partner management. The cloud based architecture ensures a quicker time-to-market and a pay-as-you-grow business model with the highest level of security and privacy. Read more here
