Element is proud to enter into this arrangement with NCTC
DURHAM, N.C., (PRWEB) January 16, 2008
Element Customer Care today announced that it has been selected by the National Cable Television Cooperative (NCTC) as a preferred billing and customer care provider for its members. Element provides billing services, tech support and a customer service call center for the cable industry using CSG Systems software solutions.
"NCTC has negotiated this agreement to ensure that all of our members have affordable access to the industry's leading billing platform," said Jeff Abbas, President and CEO, NCTC.
"Our member companies continue to face heavy consumer demand and the necessity to provide new products. The need for more robust customer care and billing solutions is greater than ever before," said Abbas. "Element Customer Care and CSG allow our members to continue to retain a competitive advantage as they better serve their subscribers."
Many larger NCTC members are already CSG customers; this agreement will allow smaller NCTC members to have access to many of the advanced billing services and call center support that were previously unavailable to operators of their size.
"Element is proud to enter into this arrangement with NCTC," said Matt Zemon, President, Element Customer Care. "We believe in the NCTC's mission and the strength it lends to independent cable operators nationwide. With Element, NCTC's member companies can focus on growing their business and not on the day-to-day service and billing issues."
Element Customer Care leverages industry best practices and buying power to provide its clients' subscribers with a first-class customer service experience. The agreement with industry leader CSG Systems links the largest provider of video billing to operators of all sizes for affordable, turnkey billing and customer service solutions.
"All of CSG Systems' solutions are designed to provide high-quality customer care through applications that serve customers efficiently and cost effectively," said Jay McCracken, Senior Vice President, CSG Systems. "We are extremely pleased that our business relationship with Element Customer Care will expand the availability of CSG's solutions to all of NCTC's member companies."
