IDI Billing Solutions (IDI) has a new joint marketing agreement with Compliance Solutions Inc. (CSI), a Florida-based professional services organization that provides tax research, preparation, filing, disbursement and reporting services in all 50 states for telecom service providers.
The companies say their alliance leverages a growing relationship with their shared clients. IDI’s CostGuard billing and OSS solution provides an integrated tax module designed to makes it easy for service providers to manage taxing requirements on end-user invoices. Working with CSI, service providers are able to outsource their fulfill reporting demands related to Secretary of State, Department of Revenue and FCC/Public Utility Commission compliance. Examples include tax preparation, disbursements and remittance; agency audit support and defense; FCC reporting; state annual PUC returns; state USF returns; and tax exemptions.
“Compliance and taxes are two of the most significant operational issues telecom service providers face today," said Mark Lammert, a CPA and president of Compliance Solutions. "Combining the tax management capabilities of IDI’s CostGuard B/OSS solution and CSI’s reporting and compliance expertise is a powerful value proposition."
IDI Billing Solutions, which changed its name from Info Directions last year, is a developer of billing, rating, order management, workflow and selling solutions for the telecommunications industry.
