LAS VEGAS – November 1, 2018 – Calix, Inc. (NYSE:CALX, news, filings) today announced Triangle Communications has won the inaugural “Innovations in Marketing Award” at the recent Calix ConneXions 2018. Awarded to a Calix service provider who has taken the most creative approach to reaching and engaging their subscribers, Triangle exemplified marketing excellence over the last two years, by executing marketing objectives through personalized campaigns. With the assistance of Calix Marketing Cloud, Triangle has forever transformed their company and marketing processes and is looking forward to continued success in 2019.
“We are absolutely thrilled to have been recognized with this honor from Calix,” said Bethany Chinadle, vice president of customer operations at Triangle Communications. “With the changes in both USF support and our decline in rural member population, we knew we had to market smarter in order to grow our business, but we were lacking the data we needed. Once we had Calix Marketing Cloud in place, our approach changed as we knew exactly where to market and when, maximizing our marketing investment and delivering better results, including $35,000 in new revenue per month. Now, with our entire company focused on sales and marketing, the future is brighter than ever for Triangle.”
Serving 23,000 square miles in rural Montana, Triangle has over 15,000 access lines and over 11,000 members who subscribe to its Internet service. Over the last 18 months, Triangle has seen the following marketing results:
Exceeded goal of Internet speed upgrades by more than 37 percent two years in a row
Increase in marketing efficiency by 26 percent, reducing marketing expenses by more than $130,000 per year
