Digital OSS Platform

(Design notes: Position Optius as an OSS platform (a suite of pre-integrated applications solution rather then optius-odin-osg-osga-tracs-SF etc) 

Solution Designed by a CSP for CSPs

Through first hand experience as both an operating CSP and software development company we developed a modern OSS solution to help transform your CSP operations.  Our experience is beyond other OSS solution providers as we understand telecom/CSP because we are a CSP who is digitally transforming our business from legacy telecom operations into modern CSP delivering high quality customer experience.  

SaskTel International is simplifying the complexities with Digital Transformation  

In order to reduce the complexities associated with traditional OSS solutions we designed an architecture based on our operating experience.  The OPTIUS platform (suite) will assist your strategy in digitally transformation for your business operations.   We implemented this architecture into our business operations at SaskTel.  (note: need case study from SaskTel).   

Simplify, Transform and Automate Business Processes 

SI next generation OSS software simplifies, transforms, and automates complex processes that historically have been completed manually.    Optius reduces the manual effort required to run legacy business support systems (BSS) and operational support systems (OSS).   Maintaining and increasing profit margins is accomplished through delivering a great customer experience throughout the complete customer journey. 

Reduce Manual Effort in Your Operations

The reduction in manual effort translates into tangible savings for your business:

  • Improve customer service with a real-time view into facilities
  • Field technician schedules will be optimized, resulting in less truck-rolls
  • Mitigate the risk of manual errors associated with legacy systems
  • Employees can spend more time on emerging business priorities
  • Leadership can access improved metrics and trends to assist in decision making
