Millicom Selects Mediamorph to Accelerate Growth and Manage Costs

Improved linear deal management and financial automation will provide more accuracy, control, and flexibility – supporting further expansion

Mediamorph announced today that leading telecom and media company Millicom, with over 62 million customers in Latin America and Africa, has selected Mediamorph to support and accelerate growth. Millicom’s Tigo Star brand delivers satellite Direct to Home (DTH) pay TV, residential cable, and other TV broadband services.

Rapid expansion of content sources and an ever-changing media landscape has increased the challenge of managing contracts and making payments to channel providers. Millicom will utilize Mediamorph’s Linear Deals and Supplier Payments modules to get better insight into costs and save money.

“With our rapid expansion across our eight Latin American markets, we needed a flexible solution that allows us to better manage our linear channel deals. Spreadsheets weren’t cutting it,” said Luciano Marino, VP Cable at Millicom. “Mediamorph’s platform is part of our scalable growth, so that we can continue to provide the best cable TV content and enable our customers to connect to the digital lifestyle.

Mediamorph’s cutting edge Deals module delivers the flexibility to manage today’s complex linear and VOD contracts out-of-the-box. It provides the adaptability to future-proof the management of content contracts. Mediamorph’s Deals module simplifies the capture and review of relevant contract terms, and helps plan for upcoming negotiations, without the need for IT assistance or a paralegal. Supplier Payments module streamlines fee calculation and statement generation, increasing accuracy and reducing processing timeframes.

“We are excited to be working with Millicom in Latin America, a market with tremendous Pay TV growth potential,” said Rob Gardos, CEO of Mediamorph. “Mediamorph is focused on enabling customers to scale more quickly, drive more revenue, and thrive in a TV landscape that is evolving quickly.”
