The two organisations have joined forces to announce the new phase and commercial launch of Omantel’s multi-play billing and charging transformation on Optiva's Charging Engine.

Omantel, the leading telco provider in Oman and regional leader in the Middle East, is experiencing growth in its subscriber base as a result of massive acquisitions.

Omantel gains increased flexibility to create and tailor new products specific to its customers, launch new offerings to market faster and engage with a larger variety of customers and businesses to generate greater business value.

"Optiva is integral to our corporate strategy and to our digital transformation. We count on Optiva Charging Engine and the payments solution as well as their reliable support, maintenance and managed services to allow us to monetize a variety of multi-play services, including mobile prepaid and postpaid, hybrid, fixed, cable and internet,” said Samy Al Ghassany, COO of Omantel.

“Optiva is a strategic partner to us, and we look forward to our continued collaboration as our program enters its next phase of 5G, IoT and cloud transformation."

Omantel has earned a reputation as a trusted and innovative provider as shown by their partnership with the Oman Government Network. In this role, they support the government's telecommunication infrastructure and digital transformation, improving public services and providing a secure, reliable network.

“We are excited to be a key partner in assisting Omantel in achieving their corporate strategy and their digital transformation for their BSS ecosystem. Omantel’s investment in their digital transformation and commitment to act on their multi-play strategy will allow them to provide a world-class experience to their customers and ultimately increase revenue while retaining their base,” said Danielle Royston, Optiva CEO.
