(Cincinnati; October 11, 2011) – Convergys Corporation (NYSE: CVG), a global leader in relationship management, announced today that it has entered a strategic, worldwide reseller agreement with Sigma Systems. Convergys will integrate Sigma Systems’ award-winning OSS software solutions into the Convergys Smart Revenue Solutions Suite. The joint solutions will provide communications and cable/broadband/satellite providers, in both residential and business markets, with advanced OSS and BSS software, for the design, delivery, and management of next generation communications and entertainment services.

 

With Sigma’s advanced IP service fulfillment solutions, purpose built for complex service bundling, global communications service providers can quickly, efficiently, and continually expand their portfolio of innovative and differentiated revenue-generating service offerings, delivered over any access technology and to any device.
