December 3rd, 2020 – Hansen Technologies is pleased to announce a product upgrade and multi-year license and support agreement with Luxembourg-headquartered M7 Group for Hansen CCB, as the leading European pay-TV operator looks to consolidate billing operations and enhance the ability to meet the demands of a new, digital era.
Hansen CCB is designed to enable service providers to capitalise on new business opportunities by quickly launching attractive products for specific target markets. The scalable customer-care and billing solution, designed for today’s leading pay-TV providers, delivers the power to bring new content and OTT partner services online fast.
