The order was received through SDS’s Kenyan partner, Baran Telecom Networks, and involves the delivery of a full-scale supply chain solution. The order is the first from this client and means, besides expanding into a new market with many future opportunities, that SDS significantly strengthens its client base and product portfolio. In the past, SDS has been working for multiple branches of the MTN Group.
This is a strategic milestone for us as we begin our engagement with one of the world’s largest telecom operator groups. The value and adaptability of our products continue to be proven by the wide range of operators who see the advantages of SDS products. We look forward to establishing a long-term relationship with this esteemed telecom operator group.Tommy Eriksson, CEO of SDS AB Group
SDS will implement a state-of-the-art, full-scale version of the SFO “Sales Force Optimization” product suite at the client. It will enable the telecom operator to control, monitor, and optimize the entire sales and distribution chain for a complete range of physical and digital products. The platform incorporates machine learning and predictive analytics to continuously improve forecasting for supply chain optimization. As a result, the telecom operator gains the benefits of cost and process efficiencies across their entire distribution chain, as well as optimize working capital tied up in distribution.
The partnership represents an important expansion of SDS’ client base as well as strengthening the product suite for the telecom domain. Revenue from this order is expected to be recognized from the third quarter 2020 and onwards and we are looking forward towards to further recurring revenues over years to come.
