Convergys Acquires Visage Mobile's Subscriber Management Business

May 21, 2008

San Francisco-based Visage Mobile, a provider of mobility and subscriber management solutions, has entered into a definitive agreement to sell its Subscriber Management business to Convergys Corporation.

“We pride ourselves on building sophisticated on-demand management systems, and today's agreement with Convergys serves as a testament to the quality of the platform our team has built,” stated Matt Johnson, CEO at Visage Mobile.
He also said that his company has been partners with Convergys since the established of the company, adding that “we have great respect for its team, its business, and its vision.”
“Knowing Convergys will be able to combine our technology and customer relationships with its world-class solutions, and thus enhance and extend the platform, gives us great satisfaction,” he added.
Johnson pointed out that this latest deal will enable his company to focus its resources on the new mobility management solution, MobilityCentral, and will allow the company to accelerate the growth of that business.
In April 2008, Visage launched MobilityCentral, an on-demand software solution for enterprises seeking a “better way to monitor and manage their portfolio of mobility assets and related services.” Earlier this month, company announced MobilityCentral for the BlackBerry solution.
As indicated by Johnson, proceeds from the sale of the Subscriber Management business unit will be used to grow Visage’s MobilityCentral business.
Recently, Convergys signed a multi-year non-exclusive agreement to integrate Convergys Infinys applications into Alcatel-Lucent’s Business Support System (BSS) solution. The resulting billing solution combines Convergys’ and Alcatel-Lucent’s leading product portfolios to give service providers a single BSS solution.
