Cap Gemini Sogetti (CGS) has sold off its telecomms billing system eight months after it was launched by the services company amid great fanfare.
Previously called Omilo, the system was developed by CGS to help telcos manage and bill interconnect contracts between different operators. Interconnection contracts involve the rates telcos charge each other for carrying or terminating customers' calls.
A CGS representative said developing products is not the company's core business, though Omilo was created specifically for Sweden's Tele2.
The system is now owned by billing company Saville Systems, which will incorporate it into its retail and wholesale billing portfolio. Saville will rename Omilo as Saville Interconnect Billing Platform, to provide users with call record information, general ledger, and account settlements.
CGS will continue to sell the product on a non-exclusive basis.
Saville is also close to finalising its acquistion of BHA, an Australian retail billing systems developer. According to Martin Morgan, marketing manager at Saville, the company has not decided whether it would keep BHA's product which could compete with Saville's own retail product, but said BHA's 170-strong Unix and Oracle developers were the main attraction.
