Essex-based ICT provider Ignite Business Communications aims to light up the mobile market having struck a 'perfect match' partnership deal with 9.
Ignite also has offices in central London and targets organisations of all sizes with its portfolio of phone systems, connectivity, managed services and cloud computing, all bolstered by 9's complementary and holistic ‘Think outside the box' proposition.
Andy Portlock (pictured left), Ignite's Commercial Director, commented: "The telecom and IT sectors are crowded which creates confusion for many businesses. Customers want a single, trusted point of contact for all of their IT and telecom solutions.
"Adding mobile to our portfolio strengthens our position and fulfils the demand that we've been experiencing. 9's simplified mobile proposition ticked all of the boxes."
9 currently has circa 400 partners and the task of its Director of Partners, Adam Cathcart (pictured left), is to give businesses such as Ignite an opportunity to become a trusted one-stop-shop supplier.
"Business customers are increasingly looking for a single provider and our proposition is aimed at partners who want to seize the convergence market opportunity," stated Cathcart.
"Through access to our products and expertise we can help service providers meet this market demand."
