Vodafone UK has recognised its top performing B2B partners at its annual Partner of the Year awards, held in Manchester on 6th July.
The awards celebrate the performance of Vodafone’s partners over the last financial year, recognising those who demonstrate superior capability across the Vodafone portfolio and provide excellent service for UK businesses.
The winners are judged on a number of criteria, such as sales volumes and accreditations achieved. The segment category awards (Total Communications, Advanced and Specialist partner categories) also consider how the programme’s industry-leading training and marketing benefits have been used by partners to deliver results and help more UK businesses make the best use of technology to stay ahead.
This year’s winners are:
- Total Communications Partner of the Year – Onecom
- Advanced Partner of the Year – Garnell Corporate Communications Ltd
- Specialist Partner of the Year – New Image Communications
- One Net Partner of the Year – Connect Telecom
- Connectivity Partner of the Year (new category for this year) - iTalk Telecom
Helen Freestone recently appointed Director of Partners and Alliances for Vodafone UK said, “it’s a privilege to be able to recognise so many of our partners this year, particularly as the new programme, with a focus on capability and customer service, continues to generate success for both our own and our partners’ businesses.
“As UK businesses look to technology to help them overcome businesses challenges and stay one step ahead of the competition, they are increasingly reaping the benefits of working with Vodafone and our partners. In a rapidly changing environment, there is a fantastic opportunity for us to help UK businesses get ready for the future. Now is an exciting time to be leading our partnerships and alliances team, as we look to build future success together with our partners.”
This year’s winners were named following a day-long conference attended by almost 100 partners. The conference addressed key topics such as how the communications market can help organisations navigate significant shifts in customer and employee expectations and how new approaches to connectivity can boost productivity and operational efficiency.
