MVNOs drive profits for billing company


Martin Dawes Systems says Q1 profits up 100%

Martin Dawes Systems, provider of CRM and billing solutions to telecom operators and resellers, has announced strong growth for Q1 2005, with revenues increasing by over 50 per cent compared with the comparable period last year coupled with a significant increase in profitability. 

The growth in demand for its CRM, billing solutions and  services has spurred Martin Dawes Systems to recruit 40 new employees in the Warrington and Limerick areas, with further expansion already planned.  Managing Director Dewi Thomas says that the new appointments will be focused on continuing
Martin Dawes Systems' momentum in the market through further enouncements to its billing analysis tool, Analyser, and a continuing roll-out of its Virtual Network Enabler (VNE) service powered by dise3G.

"Analyser is proving to be successful with the market as the need for billing and cost analysis becomes more important to corporates," commented Dewi Thomas, managing director. "

The emergence of MVNOs (Mobile Virtual Network Operators) is also a key factor in Martin Dawes Systems' increasing success.  The company's enabler (VNE) service offers the system infrastructure and back office expertise to help companies, typically with strong brands but limited telecoms
experience, to enter new communications markets without having to invest in costly IT systems and support staff. 

Thomas explains, "As a fomer MVNO ourselves, the company has huge technical and operational expertise in bringing communications services to market. The VNE service portfolio takes away many of the day-to-day demands of managing the back office and allows MVNOs to concentrate on their core
business of promoting and selling their branded services.  The dise3G solution is already used by a number of the major operators in the UK, including O2, Vodafone and Opal Telecom (a subsidiary of Carphone Warehouse), and the market as a whole is increasingly recognising the operational benefits that our end-to-end solution delivers."
