Unified World Communications announced that it has been awarded the status of Advanced Partner in Vodafone UK’s new Partner programme. The new programme went live on 1 January 2017.

The new Vodafone Partner programme marks an industry shift in the way Partners are accredited and supported. The programme has been designed to meet the changing needs of business customers and better promote Partners’ capabilities, introducing new customer support criteria as well as committed investment by Partners to extensive skills development and training.

The programme places increased focus on the expertise of Partners to provide their customers with the best possible understanding, deployment and ongoing support of Vodafone’s business communications services and technologies. The move to highlight Vodafone’s wider capabilities is driven by customer demand, as businesses look to Vodafone and the channel for trusted expertise in digitally transforming their operations.

“We have invested heavily in training and internal systems to enable us to supply and support our customers, not just in mobile services, but across a wide range of communications including fixed line, converged telephony, broadband and data services. We are delighted to be recognised by Vodafone for all the hard work.”said Neil Jones, Managing Director of Unified World Communications.

Nick Birtwistle, Head of Partners and Alliances at Vodafone UK said:

“We’re delighted to welcome Unified World Communications as an Advanced Partner to the new Vodafone Partner Programme. Its team has shown great commitment and vision to leading a new era in communications and connectivity.

Digital infrastructure – from mobile to unified communications to the Internet of Things – is changing the way organisations work and new capabilities are needed to support customers in the decade ahead. With a focus on deeper customer engagement and the development of new skills, our Partner programme provides a new platform for our partners to enhance their value propositions around key technology growth areas. We look forward to working closely with Unified World Communications as we help customers benefit from new ways of working.”
