An Aberdeen based communications firm has achieved the status of Specialist Partner in Vodafone’s new partner programme which went live last month.
Coltel which provides integrated communications solutions for businesses including mobile communications, fixed line telephone systems and IT solutions, is currently the only firm in the North East of Scotland to achieve this level of status in the new programme. Over 100 dealers across the UK have received accreditation under the new scheme.
The new structure focuses on a partners’ capability to deliver services, placing recognition on their knowledge and aptitude in the solutions and the value this provides to customers. To achieve the Specialist Partner accreditation Coltel’s staff undertook a series of training and exams through which they were required by the operator to demonstrate complete competence and in-depth knowledge of Vodafone solutions and services.
Neil Collie, managing director at Coltel stated: “We’ve always held the specialist knowledge of Vodafone’s products with an emphasis on mobile. The new Vodafone partner programme now earns us the deserving recognition for our capability and expertise.
“We’ve diversified our business over the years, building on our mobile expertise to focus on fixed line telephone systems and cloud communication solutions. Vodafone has supported us during our growth and we’re very pleased to have been awarded their new Specialist Partner status.”
Coltel provides integrated communications solutions for businesses including mobile communications, fixed line telephone systems, Information Technology solutions as well as vehicle tracking, two-way radios and portable appliance testing (PAT).
Established in 1990 the firm now employs over 25 employees in Scotland, providing a complete solution from consultancy and planning to installation and maintenance.
