Why Enterprise Customers can have their Cake and Eat it too?

Enterprise customers for Telecom Service Providers (TSPs) are not only the largest revenue contributors but the most complex of customers to manage and satisfy due to the volume and number of services they consume. Enterprises are also getting very demanding in all aspects, prompt service delivery, flexible and timely invoicing, favorable contracts, immediate dispute resolution, order and service provisioning, tracking and more.

That is only one side of the story. On the other hand, TSPs are facing increasing business challenges due to the following factors:

>TSPs Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) is coming down due to severe competition, as they are driving down prices and margins.
> Telecom subscribers are increasingly resorting to alternate ways of communications through internet, instant messaging, e-mail, group chatting and others through smart phones and a plethora of mobile apps such as Google (e-mail, chat, voice and more), Skype, Whats App, Line, Viber among others.
