Onecom has been awarded a top accolade in the communications industry for its outstanding expertise and customer service.
The company, based in Whiteley, Hampshire, has been named Vodafone Total Communications Partner for 2015.
Onecom CEO Darren Ridge (pictured with Rob Mukherjee, head of Vodafone Partner Services), accepted the trophy which was the final and most prestigious prize at the Vodafone Partner Awards night in Birmingham, one of the industry’s highest-profile events.
He then emailed Onecom’s 400 members of staff to personally thank them for their hard work and to announce they would each receive a £100 bonus.
Onecom has held the title of Vodafone Platinum Partner of the Year for its business-to-business mobile solutions every year since the awards began in 2011.
The new Total Communications Partner award reflects Onecom’s march into unified communications, offering businesses complete solutions including mobile and fixed voice lines and internet connectivity.
It comes days after the company announced its biggest ever unified comms deal – a £3m contract to provide internet and voice connectivity to the Central England Co-operative’s head office and 450 outlets.
Darren Ridge said: “I am extremely proud of this award, which is Vodafone’s highest ever accolade and establishes a new benchmark for the industry.
“As a company, and as individuals, we’ve had to respond to a marketplace that moves quickly and have had to ensure we remain adequately agile and intuitive in order to respond to the needs and wants of our customers.
“Onecom understands the challenges that are faced by UK businesses and we respond by delivering appropriate, commercially superior solutions backed up by some of the best customer service in the industry.
“This award is well-deserved recognition of the people that make Onecom what it is today – an industry-leading organisation that not only participates in the communications revolution but also drives it.”
