Openet Honored in Seventh Annual International Business Awards
July 14, 2010 - Openet
DUBLIN, Ireland — July 14, 2010 — Openet, the leading provider of subscriber optimization software supplying Transactional Intelligence for the world’s largest and most innovative network service operators, announced today that its Subscriber Data Management solution was named a Distinguished Honoree in the 2010 International Business Awards. The International Business Awards are the only global, all-encompassing business awards program honoring great performances in business.
Nicknamed the Stevie® for the Greek word “crowned,” the awards will be presented to honorees at a gala dinner on Monday, September 27 at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Istanbul, Turkey.
Openet’s honored Subscriber Data Management solution is designed to give operators rich, contextual insights into subscribers with real-time visibility across all networks, making the most of each subscriber experience. This solution enables a wide array of subordinate business intelligence and analytics solutions that deliver subscriber- and service-consumption insights. Simultaneously, it streamlines real-time access to vital user profile data through service delivery applications, enabling a wide array of subscriber-aware services, such as audience measurement and interactive services.
Honorees were selected from more than 1,700 entries received from organizations and individuals in more than 40 countries. Organizations all over the world are eligible to compete in The International Business Awards, and can enter in any of more than 40 categories from Multinational Company of the Year and Best New Product of the Year to Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year and Executive of the Year.
“Despite the harsh economic climate, entries to the IBAs actually grew a bit this year, and that illustrates the increasing importance of The International Business Awards worldwide,” said Michael Gallagher, president of The Stevie Awards, presenters of the IBAs. “We congratulate all of the honorees, and we look forward to recognizing them for their achievements at our gala awards dinner in Istanbul on September 27.”
Honorees were determined through two rounds of judging by professionals worldwide.
“Subscriber viewing data has been consistently incomplete, with widely used ratings systems only tracking one quarter of channels and 30 percent of primetime viewership,” said Niall Norton, CEO of Openet. “Upon developing Openet’s Subscriber Data Management solution, we have bridged these inadequacies by enabling cable operators a new level of interaction with their customers, in turn allowing more transactional services and locating lost revenue. As a result, consumers receive a more personalized and superior network experience, while operators are able to provide new, compelling services while managing potential risk.”
