Avea, Turkey’s youngest and fastest-growing mobile operator, was facing a significant challenge in managing its rapidly growing subscriber base and the associated data volumes. The company was finding it increasingly difficult to deliver prompt service and meet service-level agreements due to the growing volumes of subscriber data. The existing content management systems were struggling to keep up with the increased volumes of data, causing long delays in accessing information. This delay was affecting the company's ability to respond to customers promptly, risking customer satisfaction, potential loss of business to competitors, and non-compliance with government regulations. The company needed to process all mobile number portability requests within 48 hours and send out invoices at least seven days before the payment due date, which was becoming a challenge with the existing systems.
About The Customer
Founded in 2004, Avea is Turkey’s youngest and fastest-growing mobile operator, with more than 16 million subscribers as of mid-2015. The company employs approximately 2,700 people and has roaming agreements with 685 GSM operators in 205 countries around the globe. Avea is known for its commitment to delivering a responsive, personalized service that meets and exceeds customer expectations. However, with the telecommunications industry becoming more crowded and commoditized, Avea faces a tough challenge in ensuring that each and every customer receives stellar service.
To overcome the challenge, Avea collaborated with IBM Business Partner Aksis to develop a new content management platform. The platform was built on IBM® FileNet® Content Manager, which allowed Avea to unite information from across the business into a single electronic repository. The company now stores more than 800 million documents in this repository, including more than 16 million subscriber contracts. This solution enabled Avea's agents to access information online in just seconds, significantly boosting efficiency. Additionally, Avea introduced e-invoicing for its postpaid customers, which not only expedited the billing process but also resulted in substantial cost savings. The electronic files were automatically submitted to back-office teams, who could validate the documents and finalize the request well within the 48-hour deadline.

Leveraging the IoT to Gain a Competitive Edge in International Competition
Many large manufacturers in and outside Japan are competing for larger market share in the same space, expecting a growing demand for projectors in the areas of entertainment, which requires glamor and strong visual performance as well as digital signage that can attract people’s attention. “It is becoming more and more difficult to differentiate ourselves with stand-alone hardware products,” says Kazuyuki Kitagawa, Director of Service & Support at Panasonic AVC Networks. “In order for Panasonic to grow market share and overall business, it is essential for us to develop solutions that deliver significant added value.” Panasonic believes projection failure and quality deterioration should never happen. This is what and has driven them to make their projectors IoT-enabled. More specifically, Panasonic has developed a system that collects data from projectors, visualizes detailed operational statuses, and predicts issues and address them before failure occurs. Their projectors are embedded with a variety of sensors that measure power supply, voltage, video input/ output signals, intake/exhaust air temperatures, cooling fan operations, and light bulb operating time. These sensors have been used to make the projector more intelligent, automatically suspending operation when the temperature rises excessively, and automatically switching light bulbs. Although this was a great first step, Panasonic projectors were still not equipped with any capability to send the data over a network.
