CSG International, MTN South Africa Extend Managed Services Partnership

CSG Systems International is set to extend its managed services agreement with MTN South Africa. The managed services agreement entails system management and support of the carrier’s retail billing operations, credit vetting and number portability.

This new five-year agreement extends CSG’s responsibilities to all of the proprietary and bespoke platforms currently in use by MTN.

“The extension of the business relationship with CSG International will go a long way towards helping MTN to simplify and streamline our operations, while ensuring that we improve the quality of the services we provide to our customers,” said Benjamin Marais, chief information officer, MTN SA.
