Ever since launching Zuora for Communications in April 2011, Zuora has been rapidly scaling up its presence in the communications industry. I’m proud to say that our efforts are being recognized. I’ve been given the OK to reveal that Zuora for Communications was selected as a 2011 Internet Telephony BSS/OSS Excellence Award winner by Internet Telephony Magazine.


Internet Telephony specifically pointed to Zuora’s achievement in “creating exceptional systems for supporting business support systems.” And the editors highlighted the success Zuora generated for Tata Communications with its revolutionary InstaCompute service.


In a blog post I wrote on June 15, I discussed the need for carriers to adapt to the changing world of smart devices and customer loyalties a thing of the past. That’s the reason we launched Zuora for Communications, a solution that brings the power of the cloud to communication service providers and enables service providers to launch any type of service from broadband, WIFI, 4G, VOIP, unified communications, and wireless devices services, as well as media services that are delivered over the network such as apps, cloud, gaming, video, and voice services. The solution enables service providers to price and package any communications service, manage customer interactions everywhere, bill and invoice customers in real-time and make decisions based on subscriber analytics.


That’s exactly what Zuora means by bringing innovation to the communications space, and we’ve just started. It’s great to have industry recognition for the work that Zuora is doing with telecom carriers like Qualcomm and Elevate, and we’re excited about the opportunity to serve more industry players in the new year.
