Recognising the need for a dedicated B2B2X solution

Every sale proposition is different

There is no such thing as a standard sale or proposition in your organisation. Either sales team build and configure unique customer propositions or your customers are demanding to build their own with autonomy and flexibility within the boundaries of multiple product options and sales policies.

Channel partners demand more autonomy

You use resellers and partners as routes to market. They demand real-time digital controls and insight so that they can support customers and sales more quickly and consistently, and with direct end-customer controls.

Launching new virtualised and as-a-service products

In addition to existing connectivity and hardware solutions, you are growing your portfolio quickly with services from new partners, virtualised networks and cloud-based solutions for heterogeneous network services, IoT/M2M solutions and enterprise solutions.

5G & IoT business launches

5G is designed predominantly for enterprises and IoT enablement. Selling co-created, private and assured service to business curators will strain your current service operations and need to be automated and monetised alongside new business models.

Enterprise service automation

Enterprises bring complex hierarchies with structures that vary by business function, from credit control to end-user needs to account governance. Automation and self-services has become critical to delivering better experience and reducing risk.

Supplier management

You need to automate the on-boarding of partner products. They need to be configured and embedded into existing and new service offers. Partners need service transparency, settlement and product controls to operate efficiently with you.

This critically supports custom propositions and individual tariff negotiations common for B2B2X services. APIs allow direct integration of the product catalogue, both as a master or slave, to other third party systems such as Configure Price Quote (CPQ) system. Our as-a-service approach can also configures them for you so you can focus on building your business.

Configuration Center

Designed for co-creation in the agile virtual network era

Definable and private networks, as enabled by new 5G and SDN driven architectures, foster new levels of service availability and characteristics for dedicated business and IoT applications. B2BonDemand enables agile service co-creation, that is simple for the B2B2X chain to order and co-manage, whilst abstracting complexity with zero-touch fulfil, assurance and charging processes.

5G Networks

Multi-modal account hierarchies to service complex organisations

The way an enterprise is structured or viewed changes with respect to the service feature. For example, the billing hierarchy for cost control is different from the hierarchy that manages how services are shared, which is different from how users are notified of exceptions or service options to drive up-sell. Enterprise level workflows, tools and processes are based on managing large accounts and services in these different ways.

CMP Preview Hierarchies

Open API for best of breed integration

A services based cloud architecture, with Open APIs, enables third party integration of solutions like CPQ (configure price quote), POS (point of sale) and customer apps by vendors such as salesforce.com and Microsoft Dynamics. Our own customer facing front-end solutions are built on the same APIs. We also align with TMF Open API and ODA standards to simplify and standardise system integration.
