09 January 2018 | Natalie Bannerman
Eniig has signed a three-year contract with Cerillion to develop a new wholesale platform based on its Enterprise BSS/OSS suite.
Commenting on the partnership, Søren Lindgaard, CEO of Eniig, said: “We chose Cerillion because of their cooperativeness and flexibility, their record of accomplishment and because they offered a professional solution that met our needs and demands. We have already had a great start to our collaboration, and we are confident that we together with Cerillion will be able to create a wholesale platform that will transform us and maybe the industry as we know it today.”
Cerillion, the billing, charging and customer management systems provider will provide Eniig, the electricity and fibre provider, with its Enterprise Product Catalogue, CRM Plus, Revenue Manager, Service Manager and Enterprise Service Bus modules, as well as a completed managed service as part of the three year contract.
“The investment required to rollout fibre networks makes it ideally suited to a wholesale model where multiple retailers share the same access network, but can still package their own unique service offerings. Eniig are at the forefront of the fibre revolution with a strong proposition for their retail partners, and we are delighted for them to join our growing base of communications and utilities customers,” added Louis Hall, CEO of Cerillion.
