Telecoms and Utilities sectors covers a wide range of vital service areas ranging from Gas, Electricity and Water Utilities to Fixed and Mobile Telephony, Data networks and broadcast Entertainment services. These industries have many challenges including adapting to higher user expectations on the one hand and a rapidly changing technology environment on the other. One thing that they hold in common is the need to invest in infrastructure with a long term perspective, whilst operating that infrastructure according to short term consumption demands. The regulated environments mean that meeting or exceeding Customer Service and Cost expectations will always be a challenge.
The way in which such businesses manage their large scale Customer Communications requirements can differentiate from competitors and provide a vital source of efficiencies. In a sense, the right choice of document creation, output management and live search integration technologies becomes a key infrastructural component for this sector’s administrative systems.
