MTS Russia Revolutionizes SIM LogisticsImpacting Significantly on MTS' Cost Reduction Policy and Business Profitability (February 29, 2012)
ENGLEWOOD, CO -- (Marketwire) -- 02/29/12 -- Evolving Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVOL), a leading provider of software solutions and services to the wireless, wireline and cable markets, today announced that Mobile TeleSystems OJSC ("MTS") (NYSE: MBT), the leading telecommunications provider in Russia and the CIS, a customer who selected the Company's Dynamic SIM Allocation Solution (DSA) in late 2011, is poised to revolutionize their SIM logistics when DSA is deployed later this year.
With over 70 million subscribers and 11 time zones in Russia, getting the right SIM cards to the right customers is difficult and expensive. There are millions of SIM cards in distribution channels at any time, of varying types and each pre-provisioned for a specific product and a specific region.
MTS will use Evolving Systems' Dynamic SIM Allocation solution to introduce a single universal SIM card. The universal SIM card will enable MTS to more efficiently meet demand in specific locations and move SIMs between regions if required.
"We chose Evolving Systems' DSA solution because of the flexibility the solution could offer," says Vasyl Latsanych, Vice President for Marketing at MTS Group. "The introduction of a unified SIM -- one that can be used across the full product range and the whole of Russia -- will enable significant cost savings, simplify logistics and stock management, and allow MTS to distribute SIM cards more efficiently in a shorter timeframe."
"The benefits MTS will receive from DSA reflect the strength of our product and the competitive edge it provides carriers," says Thad Dupper, President and CEO at Evolving Systems. "By leveraging the features of DSA, MTS will streamline its SIM logistics, increase subscriber loyalty and gain a competitive edge by engaging more effectively with its large prepaid customer base through enhanced personalization."
