Dublin, Ireland & Lisbon, Portugal – September 27, 2023 – Beyond Now, a fast-growing ecosystem orchestration and digital platform provider, and S4-Digital, an independent global business and technology consulting firm, announced that they have partnered to enable CSPs to embrace digital marketplace platforms to deliver integrated communications and technology solutions. In today’s dynamic digital landscape, where businesses are urged to adopt advanced technologies and solutions that are simple to buy, fast to integrate, and easy to consume, they need solutions that are tailored to their needs and focus on specific outcomes. This partnership will enable CSPs to leverage their infrastructure and customer reach to create marketplaces that gather technology and vertical players, fostering a collaborative partner ecosystem.
Beyond Now’s Infonova Digital Business Platform enables any CSP to co-create new solutions with its partner ecosystem, automate the orchestration of complex ordering processes involving multiple partner systems, simplifying the customer experience, and grow revenues. This platform supports the only Type-2 Marketplace recognized by TM Forum that offers customers the ability to manage the transactional aspect of their daily trading requirements and take care of the delivery and execution aspects of every product or solution purchased.
95% of businesses believe that building a partner ecosystem to deliver solutions that better fit their needs is the most important priority. They understand that technology adoption is pivotal for both their digital transformation and the long-term success of their organization, and are committed to increasing investment in technology adoption. However, businesses can struggle to develop the necessary internal skills to apply the benefits of technology to their organization, and as a result, they seek collaborative partners capable of bridging these knowledge gaps. We look forward to working with S4-Digital to help CSPs create that one-stop destination for their customers’ communication and technology needs,
