PHILADELPHIA, Penn., Oct. 15, 2002 — ORCOM and Soluziona announced they will co-develop a next-generation CIS solution for North American utilities.
The joint effort will make use of a combination of Soluziona’s experience in delivering CIS software to 44 utilities worldwide, and ORCOM’s North American client base and business process management expertise.
Both companies will maintain development resources in Philadelphia. Soluziona will be using its North American arm, Soluziona USA, to manage development operations.
ORCOM will offer this software in a hosted model alongside its proven E-CIS software. There will be new version releases of E-CIS that will continue to provide highly reliable and cost effective customer care and billing capabilities for new and existing clients.
