Azzurri joins O2 Centre of Excellence programme

Azzurri Communications has become an O2 Centre of Excellence partner.

The partnership will give Azzurri customers access to the iPhone, BlackBerry handsets and the Palm Pre.

Partners on the Centre of Excellence programme have to meet qualifying criteria in customer service and proficiency in business mobile solutions.

Azzurri is a managed service provider and provides clients with full telecoms services including mobile, fixed line and telephony.

The company will now be focusing its mobile business on O2 and will manage a base of O2 customers directly acquired by the operator.

O2 business sales director Ben Dowd said: 'We are delighted to welcome Azzurri as an O2 partner. Azzurri have already demonstrated their capability by securing the largest corporate win ever within the partner channel and we look forward to winning more in this space. Our Centre of Excellence partners continue to set the benchmark in the UK and have access to increased investment from O2.

'Our business is continuing to evolve. As we move from being purely a mobile brand to a leading connectivity service brand we want to partner with the best people and this announcement is another big part of that plan. We are dedicated to evolving the Centre of Excellence principles ensuring we involve all our partners in this process through an open dialogue. We believe it is only through these true partnerships that our channel solutions will succeed.'

Azzurri Communications CEO Gordon Matthew said: 'We've made an important decision to align our business strategically with O2 in order to underpin our mobility offering. Our focus is entirely on ensuring our customers can be as agile and as efficient as possible and we believe O2's network coverage, product strategy and vision are the most compelling of all the UK mobile operators, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future. As leaders in the mobile space and with over 21 million customers, I believe we are going to be working with a winning team. Their market leading retention figures, and extremely low churn rate proves that putting customers first gets results.

'O2's credibility, brand presence and scale combined with Azzurri's expertise in delivering business efficiency through technology and managed services represent a very strong proposition for this sector.'
