April 24, 2018 - Openet
DUBLIN, Ireland – 25th April, 2018 – Openet, a global leader in the supply of digital BSS (business support systems) and customer engagement solutions, today announced the hire of Vicente Pava as RVP Sales Americas.
With over 25 years’ experience in telecoms and IT, including 7 years as Sales VP for Hewlett Packard Enterprise for communications, media and entertainment sectors in the Americas, Vicente brings a wealth of industry expertise to Openet.
Digital transformation is changing the telecoms industry. Service providers are selling a wide range of new services through digital channels and they need to be faster in developing and monetizing new business models. This is resulting in new opportunities for more agile vendors as service providers look to move away from outdated systems from legacy vendors.
Vicente will therefore drive Openet’s efforts in delivering a range of digital ready agile solutions ranging from microservices based charging and policy solutions for tier 1 operators to end to end Digital Business Platforms for second brands and MVNOs.
Paul Saunders, Openet’s GVP, Sales and Services, “The BSS game is changing. We’re seeing a lot of demand for our end to end Digital Business Platform from new digital service providers. Our microservices based solutions are also creating a lot of demand from tier 1 service providers as they look to drive legacy costs out of the business and adopt a more agile approach to BSS. Vicente’s track record and ambition along with the Openet sales team in the Americas will build on our well established customer base in the region and convert the new digital-led demand into wins and onto strong on-going strategic relationships”.
Openet provides software solutions and services to enable service providers to create new revenues from digital services and improve customer engagement. Our Digital Business Platform enables service providers to be more agile, innovative and enjoy a faster time to value.
We are all for open solutions that deliver value and benefits to our customers. We are against vendor lock-in and the vendor first, second and third approach that has been endemic in telecoms. We work with our customers to deliver innovative solutions that drive value and enable change.
Since its foundation in 1999, Openet has been at the forefront of telecoms software development and innovation. Our success is personified by the many long-term relationships it has fostered with the largest, most progressive, and demanding operators across the globe. For more information visit www.openet.com.
