O2 launches Centers of Excellence for distribution partners
O2 will launch Centers of Excellence, a new program to support its distribution partners. Avenir, Fone Logistics, Hugh Symons, Moco and Redstone will all be a part of the program.
The existing program, the O2 Advanced Business Distributor program will be replaced with the new Centers of Excellence, and will include enhanced market support, comprehensive training and longer term contracts. Members also benefit from business, marketing and training support.
Ben Dowd, Telefónica O2 UK Business Sales Director, said: ‘In a fast changing environment we hope that by creating the O2 Business Distributors Centre of Excellence we will be able to support our Partners and help them and their stockists drive high value, long term business.
‘Although the O2 Advance Distribution Programme brand will disappear the concept and focus will remain and we will continue to support the industry’s leading business distributors. However it is imperative in a maturing and increasingly complex market that this programme evolves.’
