MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the communications service provider (CSP) financial assurance sector, Stratecast | Frost & Sullivan recognizes Subex with the 2012 Stratecast Global Market Share Leadership Award in the CSP Financial Assurance Sector. In a fragmented market with 28 identified suppliers, Subex is the current market share leader with a 20 percent stake.
In its simplest form, CSP financial assurance is traditional revenue assurance, including revenue leakage analysis and financial fraud management. These functions are enhanced with modern computing and analytical tools to yield near real-time analysis of business and operations data when needed. Financial assurance also involves cost and margin analysis to improve revenue accountability as partner and supplier relationships expand, and business models evolve.
"An important and growing market that was estimated at $470 million in 2012, CSP financial assurance is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.8 percent to reach $765 million by 2016," said Karl Whitelock, Stratecast Director of Global OSS/BSS Strategy. "Subex is clearly an industry leader as evidenced by most communications service providers (CSPs) mentioning Subex as one of the first names that come to mind with demonstrated revenue leakage, fraud management and margin analysis capabilities."
The Subex Revenue Operations Center (ROC) portfolio includes ROC Revenue Assurance, ROC Fraud Management and ROC Cost Management, which addresses end-to-end needs in the financial assurance domain. The company's revenue management solutions are also revenue leaders within each prospective market segment.
Overall, Subex is set to outpace competition and grow its market share further in the coming months. In recognition of its robust growth and potential, Frost & Sullivan is pleased to present the 2012 Stratecast Global Market Share Leadership Award in the CSP Financial Assurance Sector. Frost & Sullivan regularly presents this award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in capturing the highest market share within this target market.
