EyeBill’s VoIP billing platform allows VIVOphone to implement its fast growth plan of free unlimited VoIP phone calls to end-customers and a competitive fee to carriers in Latin America
EyeBill Interactive Solutions’ Enterprise Edition of its VoIP billing platform is being used in Latin America by VIVOphone to advance its penetration of that market.
The Latin American market is still characterized by big communication companies behaving like oligopolies who skim the local market with relatively high prices, while small start-ups are unable to compete by offering traditional communications services.
With the EyeBill billing platform, VIVOphone is competing by successfully targeting both end-customers and wholesale traffic businesses, offering zero charge long distance to callers using VIVOphone’s IP devices to connect to IP devices within the company’s network, and charging low fees for termination services to local carriers via an IP-to-PSTN connection.
It also achieves a tariff differentiation between IP-to-IP and IP-to-PSTN connection as well as differentiation between long-distance and short-distance communication services, which are the basics of the company’s business model.
