Major New Contract Win


Cerillion, the billing, charging and customer relationship management software solutions provider, is pleased to announce that it has signed a significant new contract with a European telecommunications provider, worth an initial £5.0m and a total of £8.4m over five years.    


The contract covers the supply and installation of Cerillion's Enterprise BSS/OSS*suite, as well as managed service operations and ongoing support and maintenance of the solution. The system is a comprehensive, functionally rich, and fully integrated billing, charging and customer management solution, suitable for fixed, mobile, broadband and TV services. Secured after a rigorous tender process, begun in the summer, the contract starts immediately, with implementation expected to complete in early 2019


The contract is one of a number of major agreements signed in Europe over the last 12 months, reflecting Cerillion's access to an increasing number of opportunities in the region.  The Company believes that this reflects its higher profile in this market.


Cerillion's Enterprise BSS/OSS suite will replace a number of legacy systems and will be used across four separate brands in three geographic locations. The suite includes the Company's real-time Convergent Charging System ("CCS"), which enables the billing of prepaid mobile and convergent services.  Cerillion is also providing its Evergreen Software Model, which allows customers to stay up to date with new versions of the product suite as they become available.


Louis Hall, Chief Executive Officer of Cerillion, said:


"We are delighted to have secured this major new contract in Europe after a stringent and competitive tender process. We are engaging with an increasing number of opportunities in the European market, helped in part by our higher profile as reflected in recent market analysis. 


"The replacement of a number of legacy systems, each on different operating platforms, with one, convergent, end-to-end solution, will provide our new customer with significantly more flexibility in responding to competitive pressures within its market, and will enable significant operational and cost efficiencies.


"We look forward to delivering these benefits and to supporting our new customer's operations as they continue to evolve."
