Cycle30 Selects ETI as B/OSS Provisioning Partner
Proven experience and versatility of ETI’s TriadTM is deciding factor
ATLANTA, GA – September 14, 2010 — ETI Software Solutions today announced its partnership with Cycle30, a new wholly owned subsidiary of cable operator GCI, that will provide end-to-end hosted billing solutions for mid-tier telecom, cable and utility operators in North America.
Cycle30 will use ETI Software’s activation and provisioning solution TriadTM in its hosted platform. The company’s mission is to provide converged service operators a completely hosted, order-to-cash platform made up of top-tier, commercial software solutions.
“We chose ETI because of its proven success in the market,” said Jim Dunlap, president of Cycle30. “Triad uses one simple platform to easily integrate with all major billing systems right out of the box. Just as impressive, Triad connects with more next generation technologies than any of its competitors, including FTTH, IPTV and HSD.”
“Triad’s versatility offers a one-to-many functionality that is unique in the industry,” said Pete Pifer, Chairman and CEO of ETI Software Solutions. “It defeats swivel chair entry, lowers operating expenses and at the same time provides a solid return on investment because it grows with the technology deployments of its customers.”
With its operator heritage and experience from GCI, Cycle30 aims to bring a new level of customer service to the billing services industry. “Cycle30 is the only billing provider that understands the business from the operator’s point of view,” added Dunlap. “We are aligning with partners like ETI who understand our philosophy.”
“Customer service is ETI’s hallmark and our priority every single day,” said Pifer. “ETI always puts our customers first. Cycle30’s dedication to the same high level of service is another reason this partnership is so exciting.”
