Nigerian mobile operator Globacom has signed a 10-year deal with Ericsson to replace its legacy charging platform and provide professional services including systems integration and software maintenance.

Ericsson’s charging system will allow Globacom to offer flexible pricing and discounting plans, as well as benefits such as loyalty programmes to its pre-paid subscribers.

Paddy Adenuga, executive vice chairman, Globacom, said: “Ericsson’s solution will help us rapidly deploy new products and services, and our subscribers will get more value for their money through better control of costs, bonuses and discounts.”

Globacom, which is Nigeria’s second biggest mobile operators, is owned by the Mike Adenuga Group. It competes with operators including market leader MTN Nigeria, and Airtel.

Globacom also operates in the Republic of Benin and has recently acquired licenses to operate in Ghana and the Ivory Coast.
