- Eckoh's wholly owned subsidiary, Eckoh US, has signed two significant contracts, worth an estimated $7m over their three-year terms.

The first contract has been secured through our US reseller partner and is a new three-year agreement for Eckoh to provide secure payment services to a global insurance company in the Fortune 500. The contract, which represents the second major US organisation secured through our partner in 2016, will see Eckoh provide its patented CallGuard tokenisation solution across 5,000 US-based contact centre agents employed by the corporation. The delivered solution, which is expected to be operational by the last quarter of the financial year, has a minimum value to Eckoh of $2m evenly spread across the three-year term. In line with the focus of our partnership on large enterprise customers, typically targeting the Fortune 500, this contract is the largest secure payments deal won in the US since Eckoh entered the market two years ago. It is further indication that momentum is not only building in terms of contract wins but also in value.

The second contract, which has been won by the Group directly, is a three-year agreement to provide a variety of contact centre infrastructure support services to a major US telecommunications company, commencing from July 2016. The contract will generate a minimum of $3m revenue over the three-year term but with anticipated revenue in excess of $5m.

Eckoh also announced that it has entered into an updated three-year US distributor agreement with West Corporation. Over the first two years of the partnership, commencement of which was announced on 1 July 2014, West and Eckoh have successfully built a significant sales pipeline for Eckoh's secure payments solution targeted for US Fortune 500 organisations.

The new and updated distributor agreement will see West continue to focus on delivering additional enterprise deals over the next three years on a non-exclusive basis, enabling Eckoh to extend its presence and partnerships in the US mid-market where the Group has witnessed the majority of its direct sales success.
