Venus Business Communications completed its transition to M247 following acquisition in March this year. The transition now means more profitability for resellers and more productivity for M247 customers.
M247’s acquisition of Venus Business Communications cements the Group’s nationwide commitment to deliver a world class network throughout the UK, Europe and Internationally. M247 is committed to delivering more for all its stakeholders, so resellers and partners can now access and deliver an expanded product and service portfolio to its customers. Headed up by newly appointed Channel Director, Will Brooks, M247 has a partnership programme with three categories; reseller, referral and wholesale partners. This programme promises to enable channel partners to differentiate their offering, improve customer solutions, build margins and improve their order-to-revenue time. The M247 mission to empower business productivity extends to its partners, with support every step of the way to grow their businesses.
Will comments: “Our partners will now benefit from greater innovation, better value, new ideas and a fresh approach to business. As we continue to lead the industry and redefine connectivity, we want to take the best aspects of all the partner programmes across the businesses which have come together to form the M247 you see today, to create a reseller offering which is representative of the modern world in which we operate. The pace of technology innovation today means resellers need to rely on their vendors to help them provide the best possible services and solutions and for their customers – we are committed to doing just that.”
M247’s (formally Venus Business Communication) partners are also excited for the transition. Daniel Hughes, Connecting London, comments: “We’ve always enjoyed a fantastic relationship with Venus, but the access to a wider product proposition including a proprietary wireless network and access to local loop unbundled fibre will enable us to offer so much more to our customers.”
Neil Rampe, Chief Revenue Officer at M247 said: “This is brilliant for our channel partners and their customers. The successful acquisition of Venus and integration into M247 means better productivity and efficiency through a greater range of services and capabilities. Now our channel partners and customers can focus on their growth, their business and their objectives whilst we deliver connectivity without compromise.”
Brian Iddon, ex-Venus Business Communications Director, concurs: “This transition is great news for all stakeholders in Venus – employees, customers and resellers. Our reseller network will transfer seamlessly into the M247 partnership programme where they will experience increased levels of support
Following the transition and expansion M247 now employs 230 people across six sites including Manchester, Newcastle, London and Bucharest.
