TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwire – Aug. 13, 2012) – Bill Wignall, president and chief executive officer of Sangoma Technologies Corporation (TSX VENTURE:STC), a leading provider of hardware and software components that enable or enhance IP Communications Systems for both voice and data, will deliver the keynote address to the members of the Tennessee Telecommunications Association. The speech is scheduled for 8:45 A.M. on August 21, 2012, at the Marriott Cool Springs in Franklin, Tennessee.
In his presentation, Wignall will draw on his experiences at Sangoma Technologies and other technology firms to describe strategies and ideas that will allow service providers to maintain a competitive advantage in the rapidly shifting telecommunications ecosystem.
“Independent and rural service providers are facing unique challenges that range from an increasingly savvy subscriber base that demands access to the latest features and services, to encroaching wireless and cable providers that continually target their base,” commented Wignall. “Independent operators have a trusted relationship with their customers, and through recent advancements in communications technology, have a unique opportunity to deliver top-tier services that enhance customer satisfaction and retention, improve operational efficiency and extend the useful life of the existing infrastructure.”
“We are delighted to have Bill address our members, and expect that they will get tremendous value from his insights,” noted Larry Drake, executive director of the Tennessee Telecommunications Association. “Whether they serve thousands-or tens of thousands of customers-every one of our members can benefit from his experiences and ideas for staying competitive and profitable in an ever-changing competitive landscape.”
