The Operations Service and Support Suite (OS3) has been designed to meet the specific service management requirements of Communication Service Providers and Enterprise Telecoms departments.
The suite of products provides comprehensive out-of-the-box workflow based functionality for Trouble Management, Work Order Management, Site Management, Vendor Management, Change and Configuration Management. The suite also provides powerful graphical reporting and integration capability to help service providers address critical industry challenges such as convergence, quality of service (QoS) and to become 'lean operators'.
Adherence to Industry Standards and Best Practices
A key aspect of the product suite is adherence to telecoms industry standards and best practices such as those set out by the Telemanagement Forum (TM Forum). This ensures current and future interoperability and integration with other telecoms industry solutions. Alignment with the TM Forum will also enable organizations to benefit from on-going TM Forum initiatives to enhance business models and meet new market requirements.
To support the continuing convergence of IT and Network operations, the OS3 Suite also embraces relevant service management standards and best practices set out by IT specific frameworks such as ITIL, COBIT and MOF.
Clients benefit from a commercial off-the shelf software suite that provides 'the best of both worlds' and supports interoperability between IT and Network infrastructures.
