i-design Announces First Canadian Contract Through
Channel Partner IBM Canada Ltd.
28 November 2011
i-design, the leading developer and supplier of ATM and
self-service marketing solutions for the banking industry,
is delighted to announce that it has secured its first
joono licence win in Canada. The multi-year agreement has
been signed with a large bank in Canada ("the Bank") and
covers the deployment of i-design's next generation
targeted marketing software, joono, across the Bank's
entire ATM estate. The contract was secured via i-design's
channel partner in Canada, IBM Canada Limited, and is
i-design's first win via IBM. The new agreement helps to
underpin market forecasts for the current financial year.
The roll-out of joono will provide the Bank with new
marketing capabilities which will enhance its customer
communications. The contract, which was signed following a
competitive tender, represents further pleasing uptake of
joono, launched in the summer this year. In July 2011, the
Group announced that existing customer, US based Cardtronics,
Inc, had acquired a licence to incorporate joono into its
offering on a global basis.
Ana Stewart, CEO of i-design Group PLC commented:
"This contract expands our presence in North America
significantly, taking i-design's software into Canada
for the first time. We are also delighted that this is
the first contract win secured via our channel partner,
IBM Canada Limited, and look forward to working
together on future opportunities.
In addition, it is another major contract win for joono
and is testimony to the strength of our offering. We
believe that joono represents an unrivalled digital
marketing proposition for banks and we continue to see
exciting opportunities both in the UK and internationally
for our software."
