Subah Infosolutions Ghana Limited has made giant strides recently in the Telecom Tax Revenue Assurance and Simbox Fraud detection, as it extends its operations outside the shores of the country.
As a result of these achievements, Subah won International Gateway Monitoring contract in Guinea in 2015 and in Sierra Leone in 2016 after going through competitive tenderings.
Subah went through a competitive bidding process that involved 12 international companies and emerged successful in both bids.
Currently, the company has been shortlisted in the bidding process in Mozambique for the provision of same services. Subah equipped itself with impressive advanced home-grown technology that was capable of monitoring both local and international telephone calls that terminate in Ghana and thereby accurately determine the total value and revenue in the delivery of such services to telecom regulators and tax authorities.
The introduction of this novel technology by Subah occasioned public awareness of revenue leakages in the telecom sector.
The achievement of Subah in the local front appears to have caught the attention of other African governments.
In Guinea, Subah has successfully completed installation and commissioned sophisticated modern equipment for monitoring of the country’s international gateway systems.
According to Senesie Kallon, the Director General of the National Telecommunications Commission (NATCOM) of Sierra Leone, “… we have been losing so much from hackers and the mobile operators who have been complaining, but all will be laid to rest, now that the gateway is controlled by a reputable company.”
In this connection, Sierra Leone will see real time reporting of revenue collected which will facilitate effective decision-making, reduction of manual reporting and monitoring of collection thus, promoting transparency and easy identification of irregular payment behaviours.
Deployment of the superior home-grown technology of Subah Infosolutions in ensuring that governments and other state agencies rake in what are due them is what drives the company’s technological aspirations in the implementation of the Revenue Assurance & Tax Monitoring Systems (RATMS). This system, with an in-built rigorous capacity, enables the processing of millions in real time for the determination of revenue and taxes.
An essential component of RATMS is its distributed and scalable multi-threaded architecture configuration that supports multi-vendor and technology networks.
Consequently, governments, their revenue agencies and private organizations, are constantly looking for ways to recoup not only their investments, but also recover revenues that are lost and to increase profits through effective and efficient means for development.
