Lavastorm Analytics Platform Selected As Finalist in the Asia Communications Awards for Best Business Solution
BOSTON & SINGAPORE --(Business Wire)--
Analytics, a global business performance analytics company,
announced today that its flagship solution, the Lavastorm
Analytics Platform, has been chosen as one of two finalists for the Best
Business Solution category in the 2012
Asia Communications Awards. The platform was chosen as a finalist by
of 11 expert judges from industry organizations, including A.T.
Kearney, and Forrester
Research, for its proven abilities to deliver quantifiable business
improvements for Lavastorm's Communications
Service Provider (CSP) customers.
The Lavastorm Analytics Platform's visual-based, discovery-driven audit
analytics capabilities help CSPs improve and optimize any business
process, from revenue
assurance, to fraud
management, to customer
experience, to service
management, and more. But regardless of the process being analyzed,

platform more than six years ago for one specific task, they quickly
realized it was the perfect tool for multiple analytics-driven programs.
Lavastorm has become the preferred tool of choice for this CSP's entire revenue
assurance program, is regularly used across more than ten separate
deployments by more than 150 users, and has enabled the CSP to:
Build a new billing assurance solution in just six months to verify
that millions of customers' pricing plans were accurately migrated
from legacy billing and CRM systems, and continually ensure that
customers are charged correctly every billing cycle.
Identify many of the root causes and total financial value to the
business of customer complaints that were alleviated through account
credits, ultimately allowing the CSP to identify that front-office
staff needed more training, and key systems needed more flexibility.
Reconcile customer data inconsistencies between CRM, network, and
billing systems, estimate their financial impact, and construct an
automated process to measure data consistency between systems, and
resolve errors to improve customer experience.
Develop an automated process to identify customers that were being
given discounts for service bundles for which they did not qualify,
allowing for easy remediation, and resulting in immediate revenue
