Services Involved: 

The evolution of technology, user sophistication and multiple communication channels makes it imperative that enterprises stay at the forefront of developments in communications. However, in the process, as their telecommunications services evolve to meet growing demands, cost and usage is spiralling from difficult to control to out of control.
Convergis is a sophisticated telecommunications management solution capable of accepting data from any network carrier, service provider and/or device which generates a CDR (call detail record) or EDR (event data record).
