ST. LOUIS - April 30, 2014 - Amdocs (NASDAQ: DOX), the leading provider of customer experience systems and services, today announced that Sprint, one of North America's leading wireless service providers, has extended its managed services deal with Amdocs for its billing and customer care systems, and selected Amdocs Convergent Charging to rapidly create and monetize mobile data services.
