Saudi Arabian network service provider Bayanat has implemented a communications billing and revenue management and CRM solution from Oracle.

The firm, which was established in 2004, said it planned to expand its current service offer and needed the technology to support its growth plans.

"We looked at other vendors, but Oracle's product superiority through scalable billing and real-time architecture is just what we needed to face today's business challenges," Basem Asfoor, chief information officer of Bayanat said in a statement.

Bayanat said it expected to achieve significant market growth within Saudi Arabia, particularly in mobile WiMax network delivery.

"It is crucial that we have the correct IT infrastructure to support this objective," Asfoor said.

Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Headquartered in Riyadh, Bayanat began offering data and online services in Saudi Arabia after winning a data service licence from Saudi regulatory authority CITC to build and operate new national optical, data and wireless networks.

"The implementation allows Bayanat to face the challenges of the newly deregulated Middle East market while complying with communications standards. We are pleased to be working with this leader in the WiMax arena," commented David Sharpley, vice president of product marketing and channels at Oracle.

Bayanat is privately funded and owned by three Saudi Arabian companies: Arab Supply and Trading Company (ASTRA), Baud Telecom Company (BTC), and Nour Communications.
