"We believe that Amdocs 7 has every opportunity to fulfill its promise and help service providers achieve and profit from service convergence. We were also strongly impressed by the care and attention that had gone into the development of the Enterprise Product Catalog. By providing a single view of all product information, it helps address customer expectations for innovative offers and accurate offer information across all touchpoints, ensuring a customer experience that is personal and immediately valuable."
