Redknee Wins a Multi-Million Dollar Digital Transformation Deal with Canada's Largest Independently Owned Telecommunications Provider
TORONTO, Aug. 2, 2016 /CNW/ - Redknee Solutions Inc. (TSX: RKN), a leading provider of real-time monetization and subscriber management software, is pleased to announce the signing of a new multi-million dollar digital transformation contract with Tbaytel, the largest independently owned telecommunications service provider in Canada. This win will leverage Redknee's experience in managing and implementing complex IT transformation projects to modernize Tbaytel's business support systems.
The Redknee solution will consolidate Tbaytel's existing multi-play service offerings onto a single monetization platform, including fixed line, Internet, TV, mobile and security services; improving efficiencies and laying the foundation for Tbaytel's transformation into a digital service provider. Redknee's product catalog and order management system (acquired from Orga Systems) will allow users to select a combination of services and enable the omni-channel customer experience. This new customer win adds to Redknee's growing business in North America, while highlighting Redknee's ability to support complex multi-play business models and perform large-scale IT transformations.

Redknee's real-time monetization and subscriber management software and services allow CSPs to quickly deploy new capabilities and initiatives that support the evolution towards becoming digital service providers.
Redknee will utilize its proven project management methodology to modernize Tbaytel's business support systems so they can more easily create new service offerings and revenue streams, speeding up the launch of new digital and multi-play converged services and real-time marketing offers. It will also allow Tbaytel to create a more consistent, omni-channel experience for their customers.
