Following the acquisition of Alternative by the Daisy Group, Aurora Kendrick James is pleased to confirm that it will continue to trade under the Aurora brand name and remain independent of the group owner.

Aurora’s Managing Director, Derek Watson has confirmed “With the Daisy acquisition now finalised, it is our vision to revolutionise the billing market and become the UK’s best billing platform. Aurora is investing heavily in our Affinity billing platform with a raft of new innovative products to be released”.

Significant investment is expected to enhance Aurora’s supplier integrations to extend the single key provisioning to billing capability across a greater range of products and suppliers. Affinity’s cloud billing capability will also see further investment, as will the product plan, which has always been fine-tuned by the customers’ needs.

Aurora’s data centre hardware is also receiving investment and upgrades have been made to allow three times the number of customers who are currently hosted using the Affinity bureau billing services. Facilities offer the latest high performance systems which enable market leading processing times for customers. Even Aurora’s largest customers should expect their call rating activity to complete within a two hour window.

Aurora has also been developing several system capabilities which will increase customers’ productivity and ensure they are able to get new products to market quicker than their competitors.

Powerful billing functions will allow customers to alter the packages to best suite their usage profile. This means customers can offer their customers the best tariff management facilities available on the market, and is proving a key customer USP, enabling them to win business in areas where service and value for money have prevented them from winning before.

Derek finished saying “Aurora is an exciting place to be right now and we are looking forward to sharing further updates in the near future. Watch this space!”
