Redknee Solutions Announces Name Change to Optiva™ and Advances Strategic Plan

New branding aligns with and further catalyzes company’s transformation

TORONTO, Jan. 16, 2018 /CNW/ – Redknee Solutions Inc. (TSX: RKN), an innovative software company that delivers mission-critical monetization and subscriber management solutions to leading communication service providers globally, today announced its corporate name change to Optiva Inc. and unveiled a new vibrant brand and visual identity as part of its sweeping transformation.

The company’s rebranding is an essential next step in its evolution. The name Optiva comes from a combination of the Greek prefix “opti-,” meaning light and sight, and the word “value.”

To reinforce this transformation, we are thrilled to adopt a new name and visual identity,” said Danielle Royston, CEO of Optiva Inc. (formerly Redknee Solutions Inc). “The Optiva™ brand captures the vision and energy of our team, aligns with our strategic plan and catalyzes our future endeavors.”

More than a new name, logo and website, the Optiva™ brand reaffirms the company’s commitment to deliver powerful insights and innovations and to drive our customer success program — Optiva Advantage™. With this program, every customer outlines its overall strategic business goals, and a plan is created to align our people, products and projects to achieve these objectives.

“Our new brand further embodies our vision to provide valuable, innovative and agile products at the lowest total cost of ownership. We want to align ourselves with our customers who want market leading products at market competitive prices. This distinctive differentiation along with our Optiva Advantage™ program is the start of a new beginning for our company, and I could not be more excited about our future,” said Ms. Royston.
