Cambridge, ON (PRWEB) May 16, 2005
BillSoft, Inc., the market leader for taxation, and LogiSense Corporation, the world's leading provider of IP Billing and network service management products for service providers competing in the converged IP services market, today announced an alliance to provide joint customers with an integrated, real-time billing and taxation solution that enables service and telecommunications providers to offer comprehensive, accurate billing and taxation for existing and new services.
With over 200,000 different taxes in the U.S., service providers are faced with challenges that make provisioning for and calculating communications taxes an incredibly complex task. With the integrated solution from LogiSense and BillSoft, EngageIP Billing/OSS customers can now subscribe to BillSoft's EZTax license or ASP model to automate the complex process of identifying the changes in taxation for each of their service areas, ensuring all taxes collected are current and accurately calculated.
ÂThe demand for service providers to address the convergent IP services market is driving the need for a Âbest-of-breed' back-office taxation and billing solution, critical in the reduction of capital expenditures, while realizing a fast return on investment.Â said Louie Conceicao, Director of Marketing, LogiSense Corporation.
ÂTax reconciliation and compliance is exceedingly difficult for today's operators to handle,Â said Vicki Klein, President of BillSoft. ÂThe powerful combination of EngageIP Billing/OSS and EZTax provides customers with highly flexible and automated processes, resulting in systems that offer improved accuracy and proper billing and revenue collection. This also offers increased control over the systems for a quick and easy roll-out of new product and service offerings.Â
The integrated solution, which includes BillSoft's EZTax and the LogiSense EngageIP Billing/OSS rating and billing solution is designed to capture, label, group and provision customer data for rating and billing in real-time according to federal, state, county and local tax rules and is currently in the rollout phase with initial joint customer deployments.
