The Problem

Complexity and Intransparency


For each connection individual and complex call profiles (call duration, data volume, partner networks, overseas etc.) have to be recorded.


Up to thousands of possible non-transparent combinations of tariffs and tariff options have to be considered.
Furthermore it is non-transparent, if the offered prices are on a high or low level as compared with the average market prices.


Due to the non-managable complexity often only generalized and thus inappropriate and too expensive tariffs can be taken into consideration.
In addition to that the offered prices usually are significantly higher as the possible market prices.


The Solution

Software and Technology

Fully automated data processing

With our software we process up to millons of user data records fully automated for all your connections - in any country.

High-performance simulation by cluster server architecture

With the power of several servers we identify the least cost combinations of tariffs an tariff options out of millions of possibilities for each provider's offer.

Absolute transparency

In this way we provide absolute transparency, both in terms of their detailed requirements as well as in relation to the actual costs for each provider.


The Problem

Oligopoly and Market Failure

The german telecommunications market for corporate clients is distinctly dominated by a provider oligopoly. Because of technology requirements often only one competitor can be considered as an alternative to the existing provider. This strongly limited competition impedes an effective market pricing leaving the procurement department at a disadvantage.

Since the cost structures of the providers are also very similar and the marginal costs of the services are virtually zero, the present provider can "call" any competitors offer. The competitor then wouldn’t have a chance to win over the customer, leading to no or at least no attractive offer by the competitor.

The procurement department can then merely option to accept the uncontested offer of contract extension of the present provider.


The Solution

Auction Design

To solve the market-structure-problem we developed various auctioning methods

These solve the problem of market failure and intensifies the competition. This ensures not only that the customer receives made-to-measure services, but also receiving the best possible price from every provider.
