Two More Canadian Operators Select WinCable from GLDS for Billing & Subscriber Management

CARLSBAD, Calif. – September 7, 2009 – Building on recent momentum in Canada, billing & provisioning solutions provider Great Lakes Data Systems, Inc. (GLDS) has announced that it has successfully deployed its WinCable subscriber management system for two more Canadian operators, North Nova Cable in Truro, Nova Scotia and Cross County Cable TV, Ltd. in Canning, Nova Scotia.

Both companies will begin by using WinCable to manage their digital video and high-speed data services and, in the future, will benefit from GLDS’ ability to automate much of their service delivery infrastructure. WinCable, the leading billing & service provisioning platform among small to medium-sized broadband service providers worldwide, offers the tools necessary to effectively manage Digital Video, VoIP, High Speed Internet and more.

“Our team has found WinCable to be very easy to use and we enjoy the many features it has to offer,” said Steve Scott, President of Cross Country Cable TV. “The training provided by GLDS was great as well as the support! Monthly billing is less complicated and day-to-day procedures have been simplified.”

“The office really likes WinCable,” said Debra Crouse, Office Manager at North Nova. “It gives us all of the tools we needed to manage our business. We’ve been using WinCable for a few months now and are glad we made the change,” added Debra.

“North Nova needed a cost-effective way of managing their business and GLDS provided the perfect balance between broad functionality, and affordability,” said Garrick Russell, Vice President of Operations at GLDS. “We’re pleased to welcome North Nova Cable and look forward to a long-lasting relationship,” Russell added.

Effective management of voice, video and data across such a broad customer base has led GLDS to develop interfaces for virtually every video delivery system available today. In addition to more traditional video, GLDS also offers interfaces for rapid deployment and provisioning of IPTV, Conditional Access, Voice MTAs, eMTAs, cable modems, email servers, and virtually anything else the market demands.
