Freddie Fazelynia, former CEO of Yes Telecom and founder of 3a Telecom has launched into the unified comms market with Zest4.
The Manchester-based company plans to offer partners mobile, fixed line, data and hosted telephony services.
Zest4 has brought a number of industry veterans onboard from 3A Telecoms and Yes Telecom, including finance director Kevan Wakerley, operations director Mandy Fazelynia , Rob Foster and Jon Reynolds in channel sales and head of billing Nicola Bryan. Freddie Fazelynia was CEO of Yes Telecom from 2000 to 2006. Yes Telecom is now known as Vodafone Partner Services.
The company, which is an O2 Joined Up Communications partner and has an MVNO licence from Gamma, recently bought Outsourcery’s O2 mobile customer base, adding 1,800 customers to its base. It currently has over 50 partners and is on the hunt for more.
The company said it is hoping to stand out from competitors by offering ‘superior levels of support’ and ‘dedicated and knowledgeable staff offering flexibility, accurate customer billing and accurate and timely commission payments.’
Zest4 said its commission packages will allow partners and resellers to select their mode of operation on a per deal basis, which the company said will allow partners greater control on their cash flow and the ability to move over time to revenue share options.
The unified comms company also runs a partner support programme and is set to launch a Zest4 portal for partners which will offer services including e-contract, self-care, management information and reporting tools.
Bernie McPhillips, O2 head of wholesale partners, said: ‘O2 are delighted to welcome Zest4 as a key strategic wholesale JUC partner. The team at Zest4 have an impressive track history in delivering world class service to partners and customers and we look forward to working with them.’
