OTTAWA, Jan. 16, 2019 – Martello Technologies Group Inc. (TSXV: MTLO), (“Martello” or the “Company”), a leading provider of network performance management solutions for real-time communications, announced today that it has concluded an amendment to its commercial agreement with Mitel Networks, a key global partner. Updating an agreement signed in April 2016, the terms of this amendment are expected to be favourable to Martello’s revenues, and include expanding the coverage of Martello’s software to additional Mitel communications platforms and extending the renewal term. Martello’s software is included in Mitel Premium Software Assurance offering in two tiers, Mitel Performance Analytics (MPA) and Mitel Performance Analytics Plus (MPA Plus). This agreement covers the use and resale of MPA software in both tiers.
Under the terms of the amended agreement, Martello will develop support in its software for the MiVoice Connect enterprise call platform, as well as the MiVoice 5000 communications and collaboration solution and the MiVoice Office 400. The amendment also extends the renewal term of the agreement to two years with automatic two year renewals.
“As businesses move to the cloud, there is a growing need for proactive identification and prevention of voice and network quality issues,” said John Proctor, President and CEO of Martello Technologies. “We’re pleased to work with Mitel to deliver solutions that help a growing segment of Mitel’s customers globally, continuing the strong, long-standing partnership between our companies.”
In 2018, following the completion of an oversubscribed $7.5 million private placement, Martello debuted as a public company on the TSX Venture Exchange. This helps the company to continue and accelerate its strategic acquisition strategy that commenced in 2014. On November 2, 2018, the company announced the completion of its acquisition of Savision. This follows the acquisitions of SD-WAN player Elfiq Networks in December 2017 and Netvitesse in 2014. The Company’s solutions have been widely acclaimed in the industry. In September, Martello received a Frost & Sullivan Leadership Award for NPM (Network Performance Management) and ranked as Ottawa’s Fastest Growing Company, at No. 28 on the Growth 500 list of Canada’s Fastest Growing Companies.
