About ECSGECSG Inc. was founded in January, 2000 by a group of developers, architects and business analysts who had a strong background in information systems, telecom billing and auditing and enterprise software development. The majority of the collective experience was, at the time, derived from designing, developing and supporting a billing, customer acquisition & maintenance and invoicing system for a Greensboro, NC-based wireless telephony carrier. The billing system was at the time highly regarded in the industry and earned a patent for the parallel architecture used in the Billing and Invoicing components. After being acquired by a larger wireless carrier in 1998, the billing system was discarded in favor of the preferred solution from a third-party provider in use by the larger carrier. This event created an opportunity for the core ECSG development team to utilize their collective expertise for creative entrepreneurial purposes.
ECSG Inc. provides software solutions to telecommunications companies (including ILEC, CLEC and IXC) as well as medium to large enterprises. Specifically, the flagship product, CAT, assists such companies in managing and understanding their access network, resale and other underlying costs.
