By partnering with Amdocs, we managed to successfully implement a new revenue assurance system on time, and on budget.”

Safaricom is at the forefront of communications services in Eastern and Central Africa, and we are thrilled to be accompanying it on its journey of growth and transformation. Through our continued partnership, we will enable Safaricom to balance rapidly bringing new innovative services to market, with being able to protect its revenue from unidentified leakage and fraud.”
