Roshan Selects MATRIXX Software to Usher in Afghanistan’s Digital Era in Telecommunications

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates & SARATOGA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–MATRIXX
Software
, an innovation powerhouse committed to transforming global
commerce, today announced that Roshan, Afghanistan’s leading
telecommunications service provider, has selected MATRIXX Digital
Commerce to transform their operations and grow revenue.


Roshan is partnering with MATRIXX Software to change the way its six
million customers use telecom services by bringing real-time digital
experience and personalization for all voice, data and digital services.

MATRIXX has a global customer footprint across Europe, the Middle East,
Asia and North America. Roshan selected MATRIXX because it is the only
vendor providing a single platform that both protects and grows revenues
from traditional prepaid voice and messaging services while also
delivering the tools to attract smartphone users and increase data
usage. As the digital revolution sweeps through emerging markets, mobile
operators need cost effective, scalable solutions that improve their
existing operating portfolios while building for the future of
smartphones and digital service revenues.

In a signing ceremony in Dubai, UAE, Roshan’s CEO Karim Khoja said,
“Since our founding, Roshan has always embraced implementing new
technologies and applications to provide our customers with the best
experience. This partnership with MATRIXX Software showcases that the
digital experience is quickly becoming a reality in Afghanistan.”

“Afghanistan’s communications infrastructure has come a long way in 16
years and Roshan has played and continues to play a significant role in
making that happen,” said Dave Labuda, MATRIXX Software co-founder and
CEO. “It is only natural that Roshan is leading the way into a new era
of digital connectivity. We are proud to be a part of helping Roshan
deliver the future of customer experience and service innovation that
Roshan aims to bring to their customers.”

Built entirely from scratch, the multi-patented, award-winning MATRIXX
Digital Commerce Platform enables a digital-first reinvention of Telco
BSS. It brings together traditionally separate network and IT functions
into a single platform including product design and lifecycle
management, customer engagement, service delivery and monetization.
Built for digital, the MATRIXX Digital Commerce Platform offers
operators the agility and seamless scalability required to compete and
win now and in the future.

Roshan has always been a pioneer in leveraging its robust network
infrastructure and technology to support the government and the people
of Afghanistan. These include the launch of Afghanistan’s first ever
mobile money service, M-Paisa, which has contributed to increasing
financial transparency and financial inclusion. Roshan also launched the
first Telemedicine program in Afghanistan in 2007, linking hospitals in
Badakhshan, Bamiyan and Kandahar provinces to the French Medical
Institute for Children and Mothers (FMIC) in Kabul, one of the most
modern hospitals in the country. Since its launch, almost 30,000
patients across Afghanistan have received treatment through this
telemedicine link.
