The telecommunication industry has recognized the potential of value added services. To be competitive, the companies have to react fast on market changes and on emerging trends. They constantly have to offer new services which are requested by the customers. Also smaller companies who maybe have nested in a niche have to adjust and extend there services. However for the implementation of value added services experts are needed and the implementation of a new service is very time consuming. Existing tools either are coarse-grained or do not offer modern modes of communication such as videoconferencing or web services required by value added services. In this paper a novel approach is presented, showing how services can be designed with the business process execution language (BPEL) and implemented with a service creation environment (SCE) within a short period of time, so that only BPEL-knowledge is required to build a new service. With this approach the service providers are able to offer custom-made services considering their customers requirements and conceivabilities.
