    Hi Susan
    There are not too many left on the market.  There is WeDo (acquired by Mobileum)  cVidia (acquired bu Amdocs), Connectiva  (they also were acquired by someone) and Subex. They all have their strengths and weaknesses, and your choice may differ depending on what part of revenue assurance you would like to implement.
    Thanks

    Obviously I am biased, but why not take a look at Amdocs' RevenueGuard (formerly cVidia). You could reach out to @Gadi Solotorevsky - Amdocs employee and TM Forum Distinguished Fellow, to find out more about ​RevenueGuard, including award-winning catalysts that have been done with partners in TM Forum

    In any case good luck in your search.

    Hi Susan,
    I recommend to have a look at ​Neural Technologies - their Revenue Management platform has a lot of great RA tools with credentials in Tier 1 CSPs around the world. Maybe not as widespread as Amdocs and Mobileum, but an interesting proposition nonetheless.

    Hi Susan
    I agree with Ayden , there are limited Revenue Assurance product in Market. My suggestion is , you should look for a product which is customizable as the need . HOBS - iRAS is one of the best rule based and AI enabled tool. Simple and powerful to , supporting both Revenue Assurance and  Business assurance needs.

    Thanks

    Hi!
    There're lots of different types, for example
    cVidia
    WeDo
    Connectiva
    Subex
    All of them have their own pros and cons, and you may need some customization to make them more applicable to your business.

    Thanks,

    "60% customisation" - absolutely... out-of-the-box won't ever exist with the complexities that exist within telco's... in a sense the differentiation that a particular telcos' marketing dept strives to create to create best sales opportunities and retention leads to bespoke requirements for not only RA, but also Fraud, Credit, Customer Experience analytics, ... all being more necessary.  Many years ago telco's were fairly similar and little competition existed!

    I'd always look to take a data centric view of whatever solution you're looking to put in place... modern products need to deliver the needs for diversity through rapid flexibility.  Waiting for a vendor to provide a CR to handle some new type of marketing product/campaign is not effective.  Now that machine learning is becoming more widely available, the rapid response that it can offer is highly useful... as an example, my company worked for a government body analysing data where the machine learning solution we provided enabled them to deliver solutions into the field in a matter of a few days vs. R&D taking several months.  To enable such rapid analytics, a strong focus on building availability of data for analysis needs to be part of the culture across a company - e.g. a new campaign/promotions system should include requirements to deliver transaction data events for analytics equally as much as to perform its prime goal.
