On 17th April 2019, Bigtincan Holdings Limited (ASX: BTH) announced that it has signed expansion contract for a minimum $615,000 total contract value over 12 months, with usage-based extension options, from Openreach – a division of BT Group plc (BT, formerly British Telecom), one of the world’s leading telecommunications companies. The contract will enable Bigtincan Holdings to create an enablement solution for customer-facing teams processing orders and updates for the telecommunication infrastructure in the UK. Bigtincan software will be used by Openreach teams and hundreds of external contractors who work with Openreach supporting the fixed-line telecommunications system across the UK.
The company’s Chief Executive Officer, David Keane stated that they are pleased to see Openreach expand on the use of their software to solve complex problems in the field, and they are excited to be working with such an innovative organisation as Openreach in the UK, together with the history of its parent BT globally.
With this development, the company now has a significant client base of five of the world’s top telecommunications companies in delivering advanced sales enablement solutions. It also has been successful in protecting its intellectual property by getting its US Patent Application No. 14/899,940 awarded in the USA. The patent covers company’s pioneering work in creating a new way to allow users on mobile devices to view, interact with and share multiple pieces of content in a single screen, and describes the ability for a user to have access to numerous pieces of content displayed in tabs (similar to how a web browser allows for viewing web content) on a mobile device, where the content can be viewable or editable content pieces.
Mr. David Keane on this context stated that the awarding of these patents shows the benefit of being an early entrant to sales enablement. The management look at the ongoing innovation in the industry as critical for the future of sales enablement and recognition of that innovation through patent grants.
