CGI-AMS, the wholly-owned U.S. operating subsidiary of CGI Group Inc. (TSX: GIB.SV.A; NYSE: GIB), today announced the release of Tapestry® 6.2, an upgrade of its modular rating, billing, and order management product. Tapestry provides the answers to the issues facing today’s telecom service providers, whether they be traditional providers or providers capitalizing on the rapidly converging market of telecom and IP services, with its full suite of convergent rating, billing, and order management solutions. These solutions help providers fend off intense competition and eroding profit margins by providing the agility and responsiveness necessary to be competitive with IP, content, and value-added services.
Tapestry 6.2 builds on Tapestry’s impressive performance figures and usability features with the following enhancements:
Simplified Tax Rate Maintenance
- enables tax definitions and rates to be easily maintained using the latest version of Vertex Commtax GUI.
Rating Performance Improvements
- increased memory performance and reduced data storage needs for key rating functions.
Streamlined Event Conversions
- eases the release upgrade process by removing the need for a special event conversion process. Events will automatically be upgraded as part of provided release installation procedures.
Eased CML Debugging
- simplifies the process of identifying errors in user-generated CML scripts through the inclusion of a debugger with the ability to control program flow, set break-points, and print variables in CML scripts.
