LISBON, Portugal and FORT-DE-FRANCE, Martinique, October 26, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- WeDo Technologies, world leader in revenue assurance, today announced a new partnership with Digicel French West Indies (FWI).

As part of the Digicel Group - which is the largest mobile telecom operator in the Caribbean and fastest growing operator in Central America and the Pacific - Digicel FWI has just successfully completed the deployment of WeDo Technologies' roaming management solution - RoamBroker. Digicel will use it to effectively manage its roaming business in the French West Indies.

The RoamBroker system will help Digicel FWI manage its relationships with its roaming partners. RoamBroker allows Digicel FWI to cover the entire lifecycle of its roaming agreements: from signing, testing, rating, and exchanging traffic files to account settlement.

Using WeDo Technologies' RoamBroker product, Digicel FWI will manage all the processes related to roaming services and handle all data and functions needed to run the Transfer Account Procedure (TAP) and Returns Account Procedure (RAP), as defined by the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) of Transfer Data Interest Group (TADIG).

"WeDo Technologies' RoamBroker technology will be a key part of our ongoing efforts to drive efficiencies between Digicel and more than 200 roaming partners we have worldwide. It allows us to centralize our roaming information and management, as well as support the latest Transfer Account Procedure (TAP) and Returns Account Procedure (RAP) standards thus reducing our operational costs and improving our operational performance," said Yann Kerebel, Digicel FWI CEO.

"With the RoamBroker best-of-breed Roaming Partner Management and Settlement software, Digicel FWI can collect EDR's from its mediation platform, convert EDR's to TAP, rate them, apply taxes, and produce and exchange TAP files at lower operational costs than previously," said Sergio Steiger, VP Business Development (North America), WeDo Technologies.
