Flexible carrier-grade billing software that evolves with you

Advantage 360 began in 1984 as a two-way radio company, but the wireless communications landscape was soon to change significantly with the advent of the pager. We saw the opportunity and seized it by developing software for paging communications technology. This software gradually developed over the years, only to once again change dramatically with the initial rollout of cellular telephony. 

Ever since the mobile era, we have continued our forward-thinking ethos to develop carrier-grade billing, POS, CRM and operational support software designed to provide improved experience and clarity to the end user. 

Our philosophy of learning from our customers immerses our development, quality assurance and support staff into the daily details of each customer’s operations.

We don’t just listen; we take time to understand what our customers and prospective customers have to say, and we continually evolve the tools they need to succeed. We also frequently travel on-site to customer locations to see, hear and experience firsthand how our advanced product suite can be further shaped to best serve real world use.
