features include: service bundling; integrated rating engine;

multiple billing cycles; flexible statement design and messaging;

pro-rating; hierarchical account billing; promotional and

volume-based discounting; and Master and Tenant MDU

their next statements predicted, providing accurate and upto-the-minute

financial forecasting throughout the bill cycle.

everything from multiple statement messages to workflows for

disconnection of service, and more.

Customer Management

Retain customers, minimize churn

The Amdocs CES Multi-Play Smart Pack Call Center user interface

provides a single view of all services and information relevant to

an account. The National Language Support (NLS) capability

allows your call agents to run the system in their preferred language,

and enables your customers to choose a preferred language for

their bills and other correspondence. The user-interface (UI) is

browser independent and utilizes a secure, web based lightweight

Java client for fast account retrieval and business logic execution.

CES Multi-Play Smart Pack supports a 24x7 operation, remaining

available to all users even while an accounting period is closed.

Call center agents are able to offer contracts which may include

commitment-enforced periods; view serviceability; create and

modify work orders across all services; view and apply payments

and adjustments; and numerous other customer relationship

management functions. Our optional Computer Telephone

Interface (CTI) allows you to establish workflow across your

customer care processes that will maximize the efficiency of

your operation.

Managing your customers’ expectations and meeting your

service commitments are two challenges addressed by our

integrated Service Fulfillment capabilities. In addition to standard

field support capabilities – work order management; workload

management; progress reporting; outage management; online

scheduling – we offer an API suite to support the integration of

other work force management (WFM) products.

We provide order-to-activation provisioning interfaces and an

integrated subscriber self-service capability that enables your

customers to manage their account(s) online. Customer web

self care features allow customers to view their account, order

new services or upgrade existing services, make a payment,

and much more. All of AmdocsCES Mutli-Play Smart Pack

APIs are Java/XML based, allowing you complete control of the

transaction. Using the API suite, all Order Processing functionality

can be extended to further support your customer self-service

and third party integration requirements. Moreover, the Amdocs

cEs multi-Play smart Pack aPIs support multiple calling

methods such as Web Services for SOAP/XML over HTTP

applications or service Façade for Java applications.

Growing the business Integration and operability

Product Catalog—creating new products, managing campaigns

Product life cycle management centralizes product information to empower an agile

product strategy. CES Multi-Play Smart Pack’s Product Catalog allows you to quickly

define the services and products you provide. The set-up of these services controls order

taking, charging and automated provisioning. Adding new services, making changes to

existing ones, assigning new promotions to recurring charges in the Product Catalog, and

more, are all in your control. The set-up rules drive pricing automation throughout order

management (e.g., automatic bundling, unbundling, promotional pricing). Furthermore,

cEs multi-Play smart Pack’s Product catalog functions are administered by you as

needed, and do not require Amdocs intervention.

As you strive to meet the appetite of your customers for new services and service

combinations, Amdocs CES Multi-Play Smart Pack enables you to track customer

interests on screens you define and insert into the order and customer management

flow. Segment your target customers using user-defined reporting criteria, including

demographic and geographic information. Analyze the buying trends of these targeted

segments as each promotion is executed, and further refine your promotion targets using

this data. Combining churn analysis with promotion targets and call center feedback

will allow you to alter your business processes, products, and practices to create an

intentional and positive customer experience.
