Redknee Signs Converged Billing Deal with Leading EMEA Utility
TORONTO – April 11, 2013 – Redknee (TSX:RKN), a leading provider of business-critical billing and charging software and solutions for communications service providers, is pleased to announce that one of EMEA’s leading electricity and gas suppliers has selected Redknee’s converged billing and customer care platform. Redknee’s platform will support the utility to launch a 4G/LTE mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), enabling it to bring to market innovative mobile services and to develop new service bundles and business models to differentiate itself from its competitors. This new customer win highlights Redknee’s expertise in supporting new entrants to launch mobile services to complement their multi-play strategies, communications service providers to launch sub-brands, and MVNE/Os to accelerate their growth strategies.
Redknee’s cloud-based platform offers service providers the benefits of a flexible, next generation converged billing and customer care solution combined with a low-risk investment strategy and fast time-to-market. The real-time solution enables service providers to quickly launch targeted promotions and services, up-sell and cross-sell, and deliver an enhanced subscriber experience. Redknee’s end-to-end billing and customer care solution delivers centralized business intelligence and a full suite of billing capabilities, allowing consumer brands or new entrants, who may not be experienced in the mobile communications market or billing, to concentrate on their sales, marketing and distribution strategies rather than the management of their billing system.
