SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- Espial announced today that Buckeye Broadband, a leading provider of high-speed internet, digital TV and telephone services to customers across northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan has signed an agreement to license Espial’s Elevate SaaS video platform. With Elevate, video customers get an immersive experience, advanced voice control, and easy access to OTT services, including Netflix and YouTube.

“Elevate enhances the experience of our video customers, while giving us flexibility in how we deliver those experiences in the future.” said Jeff Abbas, President and General Manager of Buckeye Broadband. “The continuous innovation being driven on Elevate helps us increase customer engagement and satisfaction while mindfully controlling our expenses.”

“We are excited to have the opportunity to work with Buckeye Broadband to enhance and enrich their customers’ entertainment experience,” said Matt James, Espial’s vice president of North America sales. “The video industry is in the middle of a significant shift in which Pay TV operators face unprecedented competition. With Elevate, operators of any size can have affordable access to the latest features that customers love, across a variety of traditional and next-generation platforms.”

Elevate is a multi-tenant software-as-a-service (SaaS) video platform allowing operators to manage, deliver, and monetize compelling video experiences. The platform offers consumers a rich user interface with voice-based navigation, discovery, and viewing of traditional content and streaming services like Netflix and YouTube. Elevate provides operators with cloud tools for their operations, marketing, support, and engineering team – including analytics, promotions, segmentation, and diagnostics.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
