EE and Easynet Forge Relationship

Adrian Thirkill

Easynet and EE have forged a new relationship which will see Easynet’s portfolio of managed services made available to EE’s UK corporate customers. The collaboration creates a new route to market for Easynet. EE’s customers in turn benefit from increased choice from a suite of IP products which includes cloud, security, voice, videoconferencing and application performance management.

For many businesses, innovative IP solutions lie at the heart of business transformation. Organisations are migrating applications to the cloud, bringing in tools to aid collaborative working, and rolling out mobility strategies to help them increase productivity, improve efficiencies and reduce costs. Together, Easynet and EE provide an enhanced group of IT and communications solutions which help businesses achieve these objectives. Easynet and EE solutions are complementary and empower organisations to drive growth and profitability.

The new relationship between EE and Easynet removes the need for businesses to spend time researching separate mobile and IP solutions providers, by providing a single, integrated approach which brings customers speed and convenience and reduces lengthy, complex procurement cycles.

Adrian Thirkill (pictured), UK managing director for Easynet said: “EE, like Easynet, is a company founded on innovation. It has been groundbreaking in mobile with 3G and 4G, changing the way we communicate at home and on the move. Easynet, too, has a series of ‘firsts’ to its name, in the network, hosting and unified comms space. Our products, customer commitments and skill sets are a great fit with EE’s. Together they create an extensive, all-encompassing portfolio supported by skilled, responsive teams.” He continued, “This opportunity is fantastic for both Easynet and EE. For Easynet, it opens up an exciting new route to market”.

Ettienne Brandt, Director of Corporate Business at EE said, “Businesses today need to be able to connect, collaborate and communicate effectively whether they are on the go or in the office. Our partnership with Easynet allows us to provide customers with a great range of services that complement the power of our super-fast 4G mobile network, enabling customers to create connected, mobile, and secure businesses without the hassle of sourcing and working with two separate suppliers”.
