Order management is important to the success of any business but is especially critical for telecom providers. Telecom order management is operationally complex, often entailing dozens of sub-processes that involve multiple systems, departments, and partner organizations. The complexities of telecom order management are compounded when providers sell to the enterprise market where orders may be highly customized and multifaceted.
Despite the challenges of telecom order management, providers must get it right if they are to thrive in today’s increasingly competitive telecom market. Order management processes impact providers’ business prospects in a variety of ways:

AI and improving the customer experience
“Artificial Intelligence” (AI) presents both distracting hype and powerful opportunities to drive customer engagement.
- Order management processes are a major operating cost and potentially an area for significant efficiency improvements and savings.
- Because order fallout can result in lost sales and lost customers, the effectiveness of order management processes directly impacts revenues.
- New customers’ first impressions of a provider are shaped by whether the provider is able to fulfill orders in a timely and accurate manner.
- Depending on how they are implemented, telecom order management processes can either impede or facilitate a provider’s ability to roll out new products or services.
