TMTI targets foreign climes


It is partnering with telecoms companies in each market to resell its customer service software. TMTI has business units outside the UK in Canada and Finland already. Its goal is to enter Australia, Luxembourg, Belgium, Germany, Hong Kong and Poland.

TMTI commercial director Neil Jones said: We are making rapid headway into other countries.

TMTI entered the Canadian market two years ago, and has since secured deals with Canadian operator Bell Mobile and manufacturers Samsung and Motorola to enable service checks of handsets using TMTI software.

TMTI Nordics, based in Helsinki, was started two months ago and is expected to confirm similar software deals with a network and manufacturer by the end of 2007. Jones said the Helsinki base would help foster relationships with Nokia and Sony Ericsson.

TMTI has approached companies in Luxembourg, Belgium, Germany, Hong Kong and Poland to act as software resellers. Jones said: We started with a franchise model, which was a little inflexible, but have switched to a partnership approach. It is a very low risk strategy with potentially very significant returns.

It is also close to signing a deal in Australia.

The company has seen significant growth. Results from February reported turnover up from £3.9m in 2006 to £5.1m.
