The Leading Vendors in Data Clearing 2021

ROCCO HQ London 06/04/2021. Our 6th research into the Performance and Leadership of Data Clearing Vendors has been concluded, the results have been checked and verified and we are pleased to publish the Tier One Data Clearing Houses for 2021.

Data Clearing is a fundamental process needed for the delivery of International Roaming. Data Clearing is the process of detecting and correcting (or removing) corrupt or inaccurate records from a file exchanged by Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) which reports on their subscribers usage in each others networks when International Roaming occurs. It refers to identifying incomplete, incorrect, inaccurate or irrelevant parts of the data and then working with MNOs towards cleaning it in preparation for billing.

While Mobile Network Operators have some of this data within their network already, the validation and or data processing is still an important part of delivering accurate Roaming billing information today.

ROCCO identified 11 Vendors (See our Vendor Directory for more information on which Vendors offer services) who offer Data Clearing services which support clearing of data for International Roaming. Repeating the popular research we conducted in 2019, 2017, 2016, 2015 and 2014 we then asked Mobile Operators to rate the Vendors against over 40 Performance and Leadership KPIs to identify the leading Vendors in this market.

Congratulations to the three Vendors who reached Tier One within our research. Tier One means that across all categories these Vendors were rated 4-5 points out of 5 by MNOs.

Data Clearing Vendor Benchmarking Report 2021

Between November to March 2021 we asked Mobile Network Operators globally to give us their perceptions of Data Clearing Vendors. The survey was about brand perception, experience of these providers as well as an understanding of whether MNOs would choose them over others.

The survey also covered some major themes regarding Data Clearing including the challenges and the innovations MNOs are looking for in this area.

MNOs who participated in the Research will receive their free Executive Summary Report today, thanks for your support and feedback, we hope you enjoy the data and insights into the Vendors.

Congratulation to all the Vendors who were recognised in the report!
