Auchan Telecom, a member of Auchan France, has launched with success at the end of August a post-paid offer in France. The project is a continuation of the cooperation between Auchan and Comarch which started in 2006. Within the post-paid project for Auchan, Comarch delivers a full scope of coverage of post-paid functionalities, from rating, billing, invoicing, sub ledger, dunning, payment collection and matching, to customer registration in a point of sale, self care and deposit management. - We chose Comarch because we felt that their products would enable us to reach our goals, to create a core system solution which would be at the same time flexible and smoothly integrated. The quick launch of this project (6 months between the business specification of the solution and its startup in our first store) proved to us that we were right to build a partnership with Comarch - says Mathieu Abt, IT System Manager in Auchan Telecom. The major portion of the solution has been performed through reconfiguration of products already implemented in Auchan. The only new product delivered was Comarch Scoring, used for customer credit scoring. - Cooperation with Auchan gives us a lot of satisfaction and brings collateral benefits. Auchan is very satisfied with our professional services. This project has proven that Comarch is capable of supporting a new line of business only through implementation tasks - says Piotr Piatosa, VP Telecommunications, Comarch SA.
