CSG Systems International has revealed that the company has successfully produced and presented the New Digital Economics Executive Brainstorm 2011 in Singapore recently. The company collaborated with STL Partners, founders of the Telco 2.0 Initiative and Digital Entertainment 2.0 Initiative for this purpose.

Using the unique ‘Mindshare’ interactive format, the two-day event enabled over 100 invited senior executives from across the communications, media, banking and technology sectors to focus on strategies that accelerate new growth opportunities and business model innovation. Bringing to life some of the concepts under discussion, also included in the event was an Innovators Showcase by CSG, the company stated in a press release.

“The New Digital Economics & CSG APAC Exec Forum 2011 underscores our relentless commitment to being the strategic partner to our clients today and the future. The event provided a platform for clients to hear about strategic content that matters to their business, brainstorm innovative ideas on how to collaborate to address existing and new market challenges, and to discover opportunities to co-create successes,” said Ian Watterson, vice president and managing director (Asia Pacific) of CSG International.

The ‘executive brainstorming format’ of the New Digital Economics & CSG APAC Executive Forum 2011 looked at telcos’ strategic options, the future of the core communications products telcos rely on for much of their revenue, and how they can improve customer experience both to reduce churn and attract new customers in the telecommunications, media and technology sectors and was co-located with CSG’s APAC Executive Forum.

Recently, the company completed the acquisition of U.K-based Intec Telecom Systems PLC. Intec is a company in wholesale billing and mediation and is a provider of retail billing software worldwide. As a combined entity, the two companies are well-positioned with a broad and deep suite of solutions, aimed at helping a wide variety of service providers roll out new products and services and operate more effectively, thereby improving their bottom line.
