Volubill products, which are used by service providers globally to bring to market and monetize the new generation of digital, communication-based services, are a natural extension of CSG’s current market-leading billing and revenue management portfolio.
“CSG’s global strength, credibility, and coverage will enable Volubill products to reach a much wider market than was possible for Volubill alone,” said John Aalbers, CEO of Volubill. “We are very pleased to become part of the CSG family.”

CSG’s continual investments in innovation and efficiencies have made it a leader in next-generation software and services offerings that drive profitability and competitiveness for its global clients.
“As communications service providers around the world seek to uncover more profitable revenue streams by monetizing network data and providing an improved customer experience, charging and policy become central components of integrated global service delivery,” said Karl Whitelock, director of global OSS and BSS strategy at Stratecast. “CSG is meeting this growing need by augmenting its capabilities across the monetization process with, policy, charging, and service optimization.”
CSG currently provides comprehensive software, technology, and services solutions to more than 500 global communications clients. Assets acquired will allow CSG to rapidly expand its charging and policy reach and expertise while providing a path to innovative new capabilities and services.
