‘Revenue Assurance’ Scores High On Visibility Index

The OSS News Review has released their ‘OSS Visibility Index’ ratings for July 2008. In the index, ‘revenue assurance’ scored as the third most common product or service. Is this a sign that revenue assurance has achieved a high level of recognition, or that the phrase is used indiscriminately?

  • Well, I recently noticed a sign on the train while traveling to Hatfield that labels what I would call a “Ticket Inspector” a member of “Revenue Protect” staff.

    So either Eric’s company has actually taken over the railway company or I am making a case for the “indiscriminate” argument.
