Austria’s Tele2 slashes costs and doubles functionality

Partner Eirteic Consulting Orchestrates Monolith Software Integration

February 25, 2013 – St Charles, IL
Tele2 is one of Europe’s leading telecom operators with 38 million customers in 11 countries and owns a complex network providing mobile, data, telephony and TV. Managing this network was getting ever more complex and expensive – but not now. With the implementation of the comprehensive network management system from Monolith Software, Tele2 have slashed their network management costs. They have already saved more than the new software cost. Better still they believe that their new systems are more flexible enabling them to spot developing customer demand and deliver new services before their competitors.

Monolith Software today announced that Eirteic Consulting (a Monolith partner) has orchestrated the transformation for Tele2 Austria.

“With this transformation we’re building a solid, seamless platform for scalable growth,” says DI Heinz Kotar, Head of NOC and OSS at Tele2 Austria. “As a leading telecom operator in Europe, we continually strive to drive efficiencies in operating expenses as we grow, while delivering leading edge-services. Our Monolith Software platform has dramatically reduced costs while accelerating speed-to-market for service offerings and proactive customer-facing visibility.”

Patrick Buttimer, CEO of Eirteic Consulting states that “ We partnered with Tele2 throughout this project and guided them through an evolution that began with immediate cost-savings and a rapid ROI, and then escalated to a more full-scale transformation to a customer-centric model that now serves as a competitive differentiator.”

According to William T. Cannon, CEO of Monolith Software, “ Tele2 Austria is an excellent example of our unified approach. Monolith Software can retire overlapping, high cost tools and replace them with a single unified monitoring solution.”
