Amdocs developed the first automated system for directory publishers, which put the customer, not the phone number, at the center. The 1984 breakup of AT&T led to Amdocs sealing a crucial win with Southwestern Bell (SBC) Yellow Pages, entering the US market and becoming the world leader in the Yellow Pages space.
