Friendly Technologies announced today that Tiscali Italy, a leading alternative Italian telecom operator, has selected Friendly's TR-069 Device Management solution to simplify and accelerate the provisioning, deployment, management and monitoring of its broadband devices and services.
With the growth of its subscriber base, Tiscali was looking for a unified device management solution that could automate the provisioning process of new subscriber devices as well as simplify the call handling and resolution process of the customer support center.
Friendly's Device Management solution will enable Tiscali to reduce the workload handled by Tiscali's Customer Support Center, thereby significantly improving customer satisfaction and loyalty.
Friendly's solution is being smoothly deployed by Tiscali, with full back-office integration of Friendly's ACS and Tiscali's high-level OSS/BSS/CRM systems. As a carrier-class solution, Friendly's Device Management platform offers full redundancy and no single point of failure.
"We are happy with our choice." said Tiscali's CIO, Salvatore Pulvirenti.

From the moment the system was implemented, we were able to take proactive measures and ensure our customers receive the best quality of service. And thanks to the automation of Customer Support operations, we are already seeing a better and more optimized way in our resources allocation."
