Comptel Corporation (NASDAQ OMX Helsinki: CTL1V) today announced it has launched Comptel Service Order Validator on the Salesforce1 AppExchange, empowering businesses to connect with customers, partners and employees in a whole new way. The app acts as a bridge between complex enterprise customer requirements and communications service providers’ (CSPs) network environments—allowing sales teams to overcome the disconnect between the sales and service delivery processes.
Comptel Service Order Validator equips CSPs with real-time service awareness from the initial lead capture all the way through to order activation. CSPs can evaluate enterprise customers’ unique needs, more easily build personalised offerings and validate service design accuracy before orders are sent to Comptel Fulfillment. The app minimises the chance of work order fallout and associated costs, supports more timely service delivery, contributes to a better customer experience and increases CSPs’ revenue opportunities.
Comments on the News
- “Failure to deliver on enterprises’ high expectations can take a significant toll on CSPs’ bottom lines,” said Antti Koskela, CTO, Comptel. “The time is now to introduce a fresh paradigm to the market, so that they don’t miss out on this revenue opportunity—traditional telco operational support systems (OSS) are well-placed to integrate with innovative, cloud-based technology such as Salesforce. Comptel is excited to introduce our app and tap into the power of social and mobile cloud technologies to help operators accelerate their ‘customer company’ transformations.”
- “Companies are looking to transform the way they connect with customers, partners and employees to thrive in today’s connected world,” said Ron Huddleston, senior vice president, ISV and Channel, salesforce.com. “By leveraging the power of the Salesforce1 Customer Platform, Comptel provides customers with the proven social, mobile and connected cloud technologies to accelerate business success.”
- Built on the Salesforce1 Platform, the new social, mobile and cloud customer platform built to transform sales, service and marketing apps, Comptel Service Order Validator is currently available on the AppExchange at www.appexchange.com.

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent.

As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost ...

In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...
