TORONTO, Canada – (April 27, 2017) – Sigma Systems, a global leader in catalog-driven software, announced its plans to feature one of their customer success stories with Windstream, a leading provider of advanced network communications, at TM Forum Live! in Nice next month.

The session will describe how Windstream devised, executed and governed a wide-reaching digital transformation program across their business units, systems, network and people. As a key strategic partner, Sigma has been instrumental in Windstream’s lead-to-cash transformation, predicated upon a catalog-driven agile B/OSS solution to dramatically improve their customers’ experience. The three main solution components of Windstream’s transformation strategy include Sigma Catalog to centralize all product, service and resource data, Sigma CPQ to enable guided selling and to produce accurate, technically feasible orders, and Sigma Order Management to orchestrate the end-to-end delivery of orders across the infrastructure. These elements provide Windstream the ability to take any type of product to market, to serve their customers across any channel and to deliver their services across any network.

“With Sigma as our strategic partner, we are able to deliver on our vision of a best-in-class, omnichannel customer experience,” said Joe Johnson, Windstream’s Vice President of Enterprise Architecture & Transformation. “Sigma Catalog is a foundational component in the Windstream ecosystem, enabling us to deliver new experiences in a consistent way.”

“Windstream is leading the charge in their efforts to pivot to a customer-centric, digitalized product and service delivery model,” said Catherine Michel, Sigma’s Chief Technology Officer. “Sigma’s portfolio is designed to support CSPs like Windstream to embrace digital innovation and enable the rapid launch and fulfilments of new products and services without completely replacing their legacy systems. All of this equates to exceptional customer experiences and the ability for CSPs to flourish in a digital economy.”

TORONTO, Canada – (April 25, 2017) – Sigma Systems, a global leader in catalog-driven software, today announced that it has been recognized as one of Canada’s Top Employers for a second year.

Now entering its fourth year, Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers is an editorial competition that recognizes small and medium enterprises (SMEs) that offer the nation’s best workplaces and forward-thinking human resources policies. Employers are evaluated on various criteria including physical workplace, work atmosphere, benefits, vacation, employee communications, performance management, training and community involvement.

“I am thrilled that Sigma has been named a Top Employer for a second year,” said Tim Spencer, President and CEO at Sigma Systems. “Our commitment to the company values of innovation, agility and dedication have no doubt been the drivers of our continued success in the marketplace. As Sigma’s footprint expands both in Canada and internationally, we continue to invest in our greatest asset – our people.”

Jocelyn Bryce, VP of Human Resources at Sigma Systems commented: “Sigma’s strength emanates from the value we place on truly listening to our employees and acting on their feedback. Securing a Top Employer win a second time is a powerful indicator that our efforts to create and maintain an engaged organization are working.”

“The defining features of employers on this year’s list is their flexibility to adapt quickly to changing conditions and the ease with which they can make improvements,” said Richard Yerema, Managing Editor of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project at Mediacorp. “Since the competition was founded, we’ve observed that the leading SMEs have steadily expanded their benefits and HR initiatives – they offer job-seekers an attractive employment proposition combined with a dynamic and fun work environment.”

TORONTO, Canada – (April 11, 2017) – Sigma Systems, the fastest path to creating, selling and delivering digital products and services was recently featured in a Stratecast|Frost & Sullivan report entitled Cataloging the Future for Hybrid Services. The report outlines why the product and service catalog is more easily adapted for working in a hybrid network than other traditional OSS solutions.

“Nowhere else can configuration data, product and services descriptors, order management processes, configure-price-quote attributes, and data on both physical and virtual network assets be combined and correlated,” said author Tim McElligott, Senior Consulting Analyst within the Stratecast Operations, Orchestration, Data Analytics & Monetization practice. “Catalogs can support both ETSI and TM Forum specifications and information models.”

“Sigma believes that advances in virtualization must ultimately be supported by an operational infrastructure that enables service providers to quickly monetize benefits. Sigma provides a catalog-driven, standards-based solution that automates much of the capability definition, offer launch, quoting, ordering and service delivery processes for service providers. The Sigma solution helps to bridge the world of traditional services on legacy networks with the virtualized capabilities of NFV/SDN.” said Catherine Michel, Chief Technology Officer at Sigma Systems.
