Telecom Fraud & Business Assurance Solutions, Services & Strategies 2019

Dear Colleague:

Telecoms face enormous challenges today in managing fraud.

But after interviewing dozens of fraud management (FM) experts in the last few months, I’ve discovered there are many fresh and innovative FM solutions and tactics out there that service providers can take advantage of.

You can read about these solutions — and gain some valuable fraud-fighting advice as well — in TRI’s new 239-page report entitled, Telecom Fraud Management Services, Software & Strategies.

Insights from Dozens of FM Experts

In the 21 years I’ve been writing research reports on telecom software, I’ve learned that the best way to gain valuable state-of-the-practice insights is to rely heavily on conversations with domain experts.

Now you might think that experts in a sensitive area like fraud management would be reluctant to speak out.  But I found the opposite is true: fraud management experts are actually eager to share intelligence with their colleagues because that’s the best defense against their common enemy, the fraudsters.

Take a look at the quality and experience of the 14 industry experts and consultants who are the main contributors of advice and perspective in this Report.  Consider too, there are another two dozen or so experts I interviewed whose insights are included in the Report, too.

Executive Summary

Who can Benefit from the Report?

The Report is written for two groups of people: telecom carriers fighting fraud and the solution vendors who help them get the job done.

On the solution vendor side, if your job is to plan, develop and sell fraud management products and services, the report contains rich market intelligence because we spoke to the vast majority of FM solution competitors.  What’s more, the Report will help you answer that vital question: what corner of the FM solutions market should I spend my next R&D and marketing dollar?

And if you work for a telecom or a virtual comms provider, the report is ideal for getting your FM team up to speed on the latest solutions and strategies to combat fraud.  Think about it: the study requires a small $2,250 investment, but the intelligence inside could lead to a big payoff in fraud prevention at your firm.

A Highly Readable — and Accessible — Report

We’ve also organized the Report for easy access and reference: here are the deliverables you get:

  • The HTML version of the Report including a Windows Explorer-style table of contents tree, subject index, and keyword search.
  • The Microsoft Word version allows you to easily print out individual chapters so you can read them on a plane or mark up your personal copy with comments you share with colleagues.
  • The Excel Sheets are where Forecasts and market numbers are shown.

Scan the Details; Sample the Research

Finally, I urge you to scan the details: the table of contents, report contributor bios, vendors profiled, and deliverables you get with the Report.  The 5-page Executive Summary is freely available for you to download.  Read it: there’s some valuable intelligence in there.  And I think it will whet your appetite for getting the full report.
