Atul Madan, EVP & COO, Digital Content and BSS at Comviva said “We are thrilled to be among the industry leaders in the number of TM Forum’s certified Open APIs with a total five certifications. As the global telecom industry shifts its focus towards digitisation, it becomes imperative for operators to keep pace with this change. In order to do so, an operator ought to focus on augmenting customer experience, offering non-traditional services and reducing time-to-market while ensuring product innovation”.

It offers flexibility, and supports any network, payment method and delivery model ensuring faster time to market.
