Mobile operators today face significant challenges in calculating their end-of-year IOT discount statements accurately within a reasonable timeframe. Over the past few years, the number and complexity of preferred roaming agreements that operators need to negotiate and manage has grown substantially.
Built in 2012, IOTRON – Nextgen’s complete IOT discount tool - was based on a request from one of our customers to help improve their cash flow, reduce errors and minimise FX risk.
With IOTRON, operators can create and store all their discount agreements in one place, allowing them to easily manage the entire lifecycle from contract to collection.
This enables Nextgen customers to improve cash flow, reduce errors and minimize FX risk through full visibility of their financial position with each roaming partner. We continue to add new features, driven by the needs of our customers and the rapidly changing mobile market.
