Vantage Towers selects BillingPlatform to transform billing and revenue management
BillingPlatform, the enterprise monetisation platform for today’s innovative business models, today announced that Vantage Towers, a leading tower company in Europe, has selected its Billing and Revenue Recognition products as its enterprise billing and revenue management solution in a five-year agreement. BillingPlatform was selected for its unified quote-to-cash capabilities in a secure cloud-based solution that will streamline, automate and scale Vantage Towers’ operational processes.
Headquartered in Düsseldorf, Germany and generating more than €1 billion in revenue in FY22, Vantage Towers is a leading tower company in Europe with around 83,000 sites in ten countries, connecting people, businesses and devices across both cities and rural areas. The company’s portfolio includes towers, masts, rooftop sites, distributed antenna systems (DAS) and small cells that combine to offer mobile network operators, IoT companies and utilities better connectivity options across Europe.
As Vantage Towers continues to experience growth through its network-sharing model, increase in tenancy and its role as a 5G superhost, it recognised the need to bill customers based on a complex and variable set of data points and charging types – from geographic locations to types of infrastructure, tiers of usage and more.
