24.06.2022

Onecom Group, the UK’s leading provider of Mobility and Cloud Communication Solutions, has announced an expansion of its £500m+ strategic partnership with Vodafone.

Hampshire-based Onecom, which employs in excess of 600 people around the UK and overseas, has expanded its long-standing strategic partnership with Vodafone to encompass an expanded product set and launch to its 450-strong partner channel, including wholesale and distribution mobile airtime, SIP and SD-WAN connectivity, IoT and 5G in addition to emerging connectivity solutions including FTTP and SoGEA services to complement its direct customer offerings.

Onecom CEO Martin Flick commented: “Following investment from LDC in 2019, the Onecom M&A strategy has been executed to build out geographic reach, enhance capability and open new routes to market through numerous acquisitions.

“The purchase of 9 Group in March 2021 provided access to an established partner channel, which perfectly complements our direct customer offering. It makes perfect sense to extend our long-standing relationship with Vodafone to those partners. Our unrivalled scale, capability and award-winning proposition will empower our channel partners to scale up, and win greater market share together, to the benefit of customers.”

Flick went on to say: “We have more than 100,000 customers and manage in excess of 800,000 mobile, hosted telephony and connectivity end points, giving us broad experience and referencability across all sectors of UK PLC. In addition to our unrivalled scale, we place huge importance on proximity to customer and partner needs ensuring customer experience is at the forefront of our strategy. This new era, working in our partnership with Vodafone and our resellers, will undoubtedly change the landscape of our industry for the mutual benefit of all parties. It’s a win, win scenario.”

Nick Gliddon, Business Director, Vodafone UK said: ‘We are delighted to be extending our partnership with Onecom Group. By continuing to provide best in-class solutions, together we can ensure customers are in the best position possible to achieve their business goals.

“Bringing the energy, alignment, mobile pedigree and broader experience we have developed together over the years to the Onecom channel partners instantly extends our reach and penetration into the market at a critical time as we head towards the 2025 switch off.”
