Enablence Strengthens Customer Service

New Web Management Portal, SLA Support, Training and Upgrade Programs Enhance Customer Service Experience

TORONTO, CANADA--(Marketwire - March 30, 2011) - Enablence Technologies, Inc. ("Enablence" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ENA), a leading supplier of fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) equipment for triple-play residential and business services and optical components and subsystems for access, metro and long-haul markets, today announced that the Company has added several new customer service, training and support tools and programs, enhancing the customer experience on a global scale. With the launch of its new Customer Support Web Portal, two global training and certification programs in Singapore and Barcelona, a more structured Service Level Agreement (SLA) program and an innovative buy-back program, Enablence is making it easier than ever for customers to select options for account management and product education that best fit their needs as they migrate their legacy networks to next-generation fiber.

"Just as Enablence revolutionized the way providers transform their networks, we are now revolutionizing customer service and support," said Tim Thorsteinson, CEO, Enablence Technologies. "This mix of innovative, self-service technology and hands-on, personalized training gives our customers expanded choices, allowing them to design the right level of interaction and education to fit their business model. And our expanded SLA structure and buy-back programs help customers maximize their return on investment for both current and new solutions."

The enhanced Enablence customer Web portal is a direct response to a growing need for automated, self-service tools to help cost-effectively monitor, manage and provision existing accounts. The Customer Support Web portal is designed to enhance Enablence's existing technical and customer support options, providing secure, 24/7 access to key customer information. Upgraded features include the ability to submit and track trouble tickets, view support content such as implementation and software guides, asset management and SLA/warranty information, and even a do-it-yourself (DIY) troubleshooting option. All Enablence Customer Support Web portal users also have the option to interact with live support professionals as needed. Customers can view in detail Enablence's enhanced SLA program, to quickly determine the status of their service agreements.

Enablence has also kicked off key partnerships within International training centers, making it more convenient for global customers to learn about current and upcoming products lines. Enablence equipment is used in a university setting to teach local students about technical engineering, while Enablence customers can experience local training in a live, interactive environment. The global training initiatives in Singapore and Barcelona allow customers to leverage their existing network and tools while enhancing their career with certification opportunities. Enablence training help customers maximize investments while eliminating the need to travel to North America for product training and certification.

"We already had a solid knowledge of Enablence products, but the Barcelona training course enabled us to deepen that general knowledge," said Romain Campoli, Network Administrator with Tutor. "We strongly feel that Enablence customers need to participate in training to validate a higher level of understanding of the Enablence products, not only as a benefit to their company but as a personal initiative to enhance their own careers." 

Enablence's "Buy Back" initiative was implemented to help current customers efficiently accelerate the appreciation of their original multi-service access platform (MSAP) hardware. The program allows Enablence to issue customers product credits towards replacing existing Inteleflex or MAGNM FX subscriber line cards. Through the Buy Back program, customers can receive product credit of $10 a port, to be used toward the purchase of the award-winning Enablence BroadAccess subscriber line cards.
