(NASDAQ: SNCR), the leading provider of activation and cloud services, today announced it has expanded its ConvergenceNow® platform to enable operators to provide a powerful experience to their global business-to-business (B2B) customers to purchase and provision mobile devices and wireless services including 3G/4G, phones, tablets, notebooks, routers, fixed broadband, car mobility, and other communication services. The enhancements will enable these operators to provide their B2B customers with a truly plug-and-play online shopping experience to ensure greater efficiencies with lower support costs. The ConvergenceNow® platform will now include a customized portal for operator administrators, customer account managers and individual subscribers, designed to streamline the ordering and provisioning process for wireless devices and communication services.

Business customers are afforded direct control over device orders, subscription plans, data features by individual, SIM inventory management, contracts and subsidies. Additionally, ConvergenceNow® pre-integrates a content management system (CMS) or plugs into an existing CMS to enable content changes in real-time to streamline site changes with multiple language support. The platform can also interface directly with customer relationship management (CRM) systems to further support VAR and channel management, including participation in sales incentive, promotions and revenue assurance related activities. “The proliferation of wireless, wireline and broadband services are driving a huge opportunity for the B2B market to take advantage of mobility,” said Bob Garcia, EVP and Chief Operating Officer at Synchronoss Technologies. “A major challenge for the B2B market is often fragmentation.
