Tribold announces Product Portfolio Manager version 2.3 to further reduce time-to-market for CSPs

Tribold announces Product Portfolio Manager version 2.3 to further reduce time-to-market for communications services providers

New version offers Microsoft .Net 2.0 upgrade compatibility, rules enhancement, improved performance and reporting features

London, 14 July, 2006 – Tribold has further strengthened its Tribold Product Portfolio Manager™ software with the addition of several key features that will further simplify communications services providers’ (CSPs) product management capabilities. Tribold Product Portfolio Manager version 2.3 further enables CSPs to offer customers products in real time and make the most of their network investment.

Currently, communications products and services can take more than 12 months to launch with little intelligence gathered on their success or failure, according to Tribold.

Tribold’s Product Portfolio Manager manages the key elements of product launch: design, build, launch, in-life management, retirement and analysis. Deploying Tribold technology reduces time to market, increases customer retention, enables effective management, improves competitive edge and drives revenues. Version 2.3 also enables even further scaling for CSPs, ensuring that larger data entries can be supported.

Tribold Product Portfolio Manager version 2.3 offers a series of enhancements to the current release of Tribold PPM, with support for Microsoft .Net 2.0 ensuring compatibility with the latest proven technology. Version 2.3 also provides the following additions:

Performance Tuning: Version 2.3 can perform at scale to enormous data volumes, handling product portfolios at least 250,000 products at one time

Rules Enhancements: Rules sit at the heart of product definition as they govern the behaviour of products in the CSP business infrastructure. Tribold Product Portfolio Manager version 2.3 provides additional capability to allow users to define more complex and idiosyncratic functions within their business rules

Reporting: Version 2.3 further incorporates the powerful Business Objects capabilities into its Product Business Intelligence platform.

Tribold CEO Simon Muderack said that the enhanced features of Tribold Product Portfolio Manager version 2.3 would give a major competitive advantage to CSPs as it would enable them to offer customers the types of services they really wanted in a dramatically reduced timeframe, as well enabling them to drive better value from existing network infrastructure investments.

“The level of product innovation and competition in the communications market needs to be managed very much as it is in the retail sector. The network is there to support new product offerings and revenue streams, but CSPs are slow to capitalise, hamstrung by poor product management,” said Muderack. “CSPs who grasp the nettle of product management will be at a serious commercial advantage, those that don’t can look forward to seeing their customers defect to their rivals.”

Analyst group IDC estimated the product lifecycle management and product data management market to be worth $800 million in 2005, growing 25 per cent year on year until 2007.
