"The One Point have proved to be an outstanding O2 Partner once again this year, and we are delighted to announce them as worthy winners of O2's Developing Partner of the Year for the third year running." - O2 Business
We are delighted to be named O2's Developing Partner of the Year for the third year running!
O2 interviewed our very own Martin Lauer, Founder & CEO of The One Point, shortly after the award was announced...
So, The One Point is a managed service provider, offering a Single Point of Contact (SPOC) for IT, telecoms, mobile and digital services. With us, you can outsource all of your managed technology and your IT Department to us as a single supplier under one roof. We are like a supermarket of business and managed technology.
We've had a good year. We do a lot in the healthcare and logistics space, so the last year has been about solidifying those relationships as they have needed us.
On top of this, all of our customers have inevitably needed extra support alongside the provision of safe, secure and speedy mobile and home connectivity, VPNs and security solutions, and we've been able to deliver them in a compliant and expedient way. We have also been recognised for our Covid response to the NHS, Care Homes, and the Citizens Advice Bureau- all services under tremendous pressure.
The relationship with O2 is more robust than it has ever been. It's going to be interesting to see what happens due to the joint venture with Virgin, but as both organisations, like The One Point, are so customer focused, I am excited by what it could achieve.
Given The One Point's breadth of offering, I am confident that we will continue to be a key strategic partner for O2.
It means a huge amount. I think it's the third time we have won this O2 award, and in all that time, we haven't missed a single O2 performance KPI in terms of customer churn, customer acquisition, blend of products, or customer satisfaction. Not one.
Working with O2 as a partner has been great, especially this year. O2 were extremely flexible as the impact of the pandemic started to hit businesses, even installing a new mast to support the connectivity for a number of our customers.
So at one level, I think we are well-positioned for whatever the next few years bring. We're called The One Point for a good reason - you can outsource all of your managed technology to a single, credible and trusted supplier - we're a Double Gold Microsoft supplier, O2 Direct Partner, that is ISO certified and Ofcom regulated.
More than that, I think the pandemic has taught every business that we need to be agile, and we need things to work whenever and wherever we are. I believe that the days of a company employing one IT person or putting together a small team responsible for IT are gone. Boards will look to introduce changes to ensure that they are better prepared for the next significant business interruption, whatever and whenever that may be, So I think that represents a fantastic opportunity for us.
