Our Story

Our Story

For many Telcos keeping the competitive edge has been at stake. Major network expansion and modernization investment has been taking place. Modern and Innovative OSS/BSS solutions has been implemented as the foundation to launch new products and services: Customer Acquisition, Customer retention and Revenue growth has been the mission.

In 2011 several Telecom Operators from Latin America faced the same major challenge: Urgent need for assertive, fast and high-quality implementation of Data Collection & Mediation projects.

Subject Matter experts were not available in sufficient supply in the territory to collect every EDR from network elements to monetization platforms on time, with quality and with optimum performance.

The Telecommunication markets in Latin America and the Caribbean demanded alternatives above and beyond software manufacturers that concentrated the know-how so NEWTOMS LLC was born out of this demand to serve those markets.

During the first 19 months of operations NEWTOMS successfully completed 12 critical projects for our clients. Ever since then NEWTOMS’s the partnership with our clients has strengthened thanks to our hands-on approach and excellence in every delivery.

Today, NEWTOMS lives to its credo: “It’s All about Integration”. We are constantly reminded how technology is engrained into nearly every aspect of our lives. For that reason, we understand that data, devices and applications need to be smoothly integrated to bring the best business and commercial outcomes.

Synergy of technology is the name of the game and it is only achieved by smart, efficient and timely integration.

In 2016 NEWTOMS, in addition to its natural domain: Telecom, we have successfully expanded into other verticals: Airlines and Banking, bringing a new IT operation model in every integration project via API-LED Connectivity.
