History

We started providing software solutions for business process automation in the area of telecommunication regulatory management back in 1998. Regulatory and licence constraints add challenges to mobile network operators daily business as they are easily conflict with economical goals for radio network planning. PreHCMs vision was to ease, streamline and automate our customers business processes for frequency assignment, frequency allocation, requests to authorities etc. PreHCM supports network operators to fulfil their obligations according to telecommunication act (TKG §55) in an efficient way. Our product portfolio allow our customer to handle telecommunication regulatory obligations in a standardised and comfortable way.

PreHCM software solutions are used by public mobile network operators to comply with international cross border agreements obligations and to meet their ambiguous network quality targets.

In the past years PreHCM added new business process solutions. This includes frequency license request processes for both microwave radio transmission and trunked radio networks. Also an EMC application process for radio sites was added. Design methodologies evolves but the key success factor – our modular software framework – stays as the basement of future developments. This approach allows for fast and agile response to changed needs of our customers.

Initially developed by Mentopolis CSC GmbH the success of our product suite required a dedicated new company to focus and support the fast growing business. This led to the spin-off of a new company PreHCM GmbH Services founded in 2013.

PreHCM Services GmbH has been taken over by the Telekom Group in 2014.
