GLDS Adds BCI Broadband and Click! Network

GLDS Adds BCI Broadband and Click! Network to Growing List of Customers for Billing, Subscriber Management, Provisioning and Workforce Management

WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Cable Show) – June 10, 2013 – Great Lakes Data Systems, Inc. (GLDS), the leading provider of billing, subscriber management and provisioning systems for small-to-medium global broadband providers, today announced it has added Click! Network and BCI Broadband to its growing list of broadband service provider customers who rely on GLDS for subscriber management, billing provisioning and workforce management solutions. GLDS solutions support more than 400 operators in 44 countries worldwide.

Click! Network, one the nation’s largest municipally owned networks, converted from CSG Systems to GLDS earlier this year and serves more than 20,000 subscribers in the greater Tacoma, Wash. area. “We have used and have researched several billing and subscriber management platforms and found that GLDS offered the most complete solution available for the money,” said Tenzin Gyaltsen, general manager, Click! Network. “I was impressed with GLDS’ ability to analyze a fairly complex project and provide solutions that not only met our growing needs, but meet them cost-effectively. We’ve had enough experience with GLDS already to know we made the right decision.”

BCI Broadband, founded in 2012 by the senior management team from the pioneering cable operator Bresnan Communications, recently completed the acquisition of Allegiance Communications, an existing GLDS customer. As a result, BCI Broadband entered into a new multi-year agreement with GLDS expanding the scope of the relationship between both parties.
Both Click! Network and BCI Broadband entered into long-term agreements with GLDS for its WinCable® subscriber management and billing system, its SuperController™ provisioning platform, its BroadHub Tech™ mobile workforce management platform and several other solutions that will contribute to the overall efficiency of their operations.

“While dozens of operators select WinCable each year, the vote of confidence from these important operators is noteworthy and validates the growing demand from broadband operators for easy-to-use, field-proven customer management solutions,” said Garrick Russell, president, GLDS. “GLDS offers the best value in billing and we’re pleased to see that affirmed with these new operator customers.”
GLDS is demonstrating its full suite of billing, subscriber management, provisioning and workforce management solutions at The Cable Show this week, June 10-12 in Washington D.C., booth #3225.
