Web chat and shiny new portals are all very well for enhancing Partner experience, but at 9, we believe it is the people at the coal face who make the real difference.
Working with the feedback from our annual survey, we have made it easier for staff members to be more able to own and resolve issues first time, which our Partners really appreciate.
By taking root cause analysis seriously and reviewing regularly amongst the management team, we have been able to drive out gremlins and avoid the repeat errors which Partners find irritating.
Better never stops however and our process of listening and continual improvement gives us confidence that the next Partner survey will show how much difference the changes we are making have really made.
As a member of the 9's Purple Partner Programme I’ve saved thousands of pounds on marketing collateral and staff training, not to mention the money saved by the partner product discounts. Most importantly, I know I’ve got the support of 9’s senior directors who are always free to offer expert advice on margin-improvement, commercials and many other subjects.

We’ve been a partner of 9 since we launched Best 4 Business Communications in 2005 and they played an instrumental part in the company’s success ever since. Over the years, the team at 9 have been a huge source of support, always just a call away when we need them and happy to help with any problem whether big or small. Service and cost are equally important and 9 tick all the boxes.

Being a partner of 9 means more than the friendly, reliable service they are known for; they have been there for the entire journey, offering training and advice that has made a world of difference to my business. As a Purple Partner I’ve taken full advantage of 9's range of quality training courses and workshops. They’ve saved me hours of time and money training up my new starters and I’ve seen a real, financial impact following their margin improvement programme.
