Appoints Ottawa-based industry leader and Canadian innovator as solutions
partner in delivering Canadians a world class mobility experience
TORONTO, Sept. 15 /CNW/ - WIND announced today it has selected Ottawa-based Telepin Software as one of its solutions providers. Telepin specializes in creating mobile financial applications including Mobile eTopUp, eVoucher and eBilling capabilities. Telepin is providing WIND with its Cayman Transaction Platform to create the core platform of recharge services and transactional infrastructure.
"Our vision is to provide our customers with an unrivalled Canadian mobile experience," said Ken Campbell, CEO of WIND. "Several of the services we will be providing to Canadians are readily available in other global markets but not currently through our competitors. Telepin is a Canadian company with success in other markets. We want to bring this success to Canada. Based on our own research we know that Canadians desire a more robust and consumer-centric service that allows flexibility in mobile top-up. With our international experience the WIND team will bring a different perspective and increased flexibility to core consumer offerings."
WIND will usher in a new era of mobile communications by harnessing the power of conversation through meaningful engagement with customers to co-create a better mobile experience. WIND is currently on target to launch in key markets in late 2009 and will continue to launch services across Canada in 2010.
"We selected Telepin Software for its innovative, easy-to-use applications that will enhance the customer experience, one of the core pillars of WIND," continued Campbell. "We are particularly pleased to partner with a Canadian company that understands the global telecom community and is able to support us in bringing services to Canada that other markets already enjoy."
"We are excited about the synergies between WIND and Telepin Software given their unique service proposition," says Telepin Software President Vincent Kadar. "Compared to many markets around the world, Canada is woefully underserved. We look forward to launching the service with WIND providing the Canadian market with a truly differentiated mobile service."
