MACH Interact Global Clearing & Settlement Solutions
FEBRUARY 2008

DID YOU KNOW?

GPRS – TD files
For operators launching GPRS, please be aware that you have to send GPRS test records in TD files even if there is a voice agreement opened.  If sent in commercial files, these records would be cleaned as no GPRS live agreement is registered with any Clearing House yet.

Case Study: O2 UK
O2 UK is one of the world’s most innovative mobile operators – but it is also one of the most careful and thorough in its planning and execution. To find out how O2 UK is looking to the long-term with MACH Billing, click here.

Tailor made training
MACH Customised Courses have been developed to address clients’ individual requirements on a 1:1 level. Course locations are flexible and topics are fully tailored. Courses can be adapted from existing material, comprise a ‘hands on’ interactive session devoted to a specific issue, or can relate directly to a GSMA requirement. As a proud and active member of the GSMA, we are in a very good position to support such training requirements. Click here to read more.
