signed a five-year extensionST. LOUIS, July 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — (NYSE: DOX), the leading provider of customer experience systems and services, today announced that Cable Bahamas Ltd., the largest triple-play (cable TV, broadband, voice) provider in the Bahamas, has signed a five-year extension for license and services for Amdocs CES Multi-Play Smart Pack, a pre-integrated customer care and billing solution for cable operators with convergent offerings.

The Amdocs solution will support Cable Bahamas’ expansion into voice services, while continuing to support its cable TV and broadband services. Amdocs Multi-Play Smart Pack will enable Cable Bahamas to deliver converged services while providing a single view of its customers across all its lines of business.

“By expanding the same proven Multi-Play Smart Pack platform that already supports our cable and broadband services, we will be able to speed time-to-market for our new voice services,” said Tony Butler, Cable Bahamas CEO. “We expect to achieve greater efficiencies and increase our competitive advantage by offering our customers new bundled service packages.”

“Amdocs CES Multi-Play Smart Pack provides pre-integrated customer-centric care and billing for service providers with convergent offerings,” said Rebecca Prudhomme, vice president of product and solutions marketing for Amdocs. “Smart Pack’s ability to support telephony – not just wireline, but also wireless, VoIP (voice over IP) and MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) – means this is a solution that can expand along with Cable Bahamas’ business, in addition to its cable and broadband services. Customers will benefit from a consistent experience, whichever combination of services they’re using.”

Cable Bahamas is a longtime Amdocs customer that has relied on CES Multi-Play Smart Pack to provide billing and customer care services for 12 years.
