T-Base Communications Acquires CNIB's Autobill Service

On February 10 2009,  T-Base Communications and CNIB announced the signing of an agreement under which T-Base will acquire CNIB's Autobill technology and assume immediate responsibility for the continued delivery of alternative format statements for CNIB's Autobill clients. With the acquisition of CNIB's Autobill program, blind, deafblind and partially sighted consumers unable to read conventional print are assured access to the most secure, private, and reliable alternative format reporting available in the market today.

"We see this as a very positive development for CNIB and our Autobill

customers," said Margaret McGrory, Vice-President, Information Systems and CIO and Managing Director, CNIB Library. When CNIB embarked upon the Autobill project, it was to fill an important void in the market. The emergence of world-class companies such as T-Base to serve this market need is great news for CNIB's commercial customers. "This will allow the CNIB Library to re-focus on its core business ensuring a sustainable alternative format collection and library service for persons with print disabilities" added McGrory.

This type of venture is not new to T-Base, which works closely with several not-for-profit organizations to offer secure statement processing more broadly, providing quality and timely delivery of sensitive, personal consumer information in alternative formats. "We are thrilled to add CNIB to this list of such relationships," stated Sharlyn Ayotte, President and CEO of T-Base. "Our business reach, scale, and growing customer list ensures that this vital service is available to all blind and partially sighted consumers across Canada, regardless of who they bank with or which telecommunication or utility service provider they may choose."
