Sales tech company Bigtincan (ASX:BTH) has named US shoe giant Nike as the “leading global sports apparel retailer” that it won a $2.8m contract from.

Bigtincan originally announced the contract on Monday, but did not name the retailer until an amended announcement was released today.

Shares in the company have risen 6 per cent since the market opened yesterday.

The announcement was light on for detail, but the contract is worth $2.8m over three years, and will see Bigtincan’s Zunos sales enablement software platform used to create a personalised mobile learning and content environment for the thousands of Nike frontline retail staff in the US and globally.

It will be deployed across several Nike sites and expand across more than a dozen countries with support for 22 languages.

“The contract underlines Bigtincan’s strategy of partnering with enterprise customers to meet their requirements for a platform that can be extended and expanded through the use of content, learning, add-ons and other features, that make the Bigtincan platform unique for key vertical markets,” the company said.

Earlier this year, Bigtincan lifted its revenue guidance by 40 per cent for the 2019 financial year on the back of increased interest from new and existing customers.

The company exceeded its goal, with full-year revenue growing by 51 per cent year-on-year to $19.9m.
