For telecom resellers, however, it can make the difference between securing a strong bottom line and reaching the end of the line. For resellers, striking a balance between efficiency and cost-effectiveness is key for ensuring long-term profitability. Processes like number porting, in which a customer’s fixed or mobile number is reassigned to a new provider, can have a dramatic effect on finances if handled incorrectly.

Next-generation Number Porting: Three Ways to Upgrade Your Process

Posted by Allison Boccamazzo on Apr 25, 2016 10:26:08 AM

There are some things in life that prove old-school is cool. You can’t go wrong, for example, with a classic arcade game (Space Shooter, anyone?).
