Bamboo Technology Group (Bamboo), a leading provider of managed ICT services, has announced a new UK Service Provider agreement with Vodafone UK, the total communications provider. The partnership will see Bamboo incorporate Vodafone's fixed and mobile converged network, international roaming and associated services into its enterprise portfolio.
Working with Vodafone, Bamboo will be able to provision and integrate the billing of Vodafone's connectivity and mobile services for its direct customers looking to keep staff connected to their colleagues, customers and business systems wherever they are working, across the UK and internationally.
Lorrin White, MD, Bamboo comments, "We are absolutely delighted to be the first new Vodafone UK service provider in over a decade. Bamboo's strength stems from our ability to deliver customer growth through agile connectivity solutions and unique service functionality - this can only happen with a foundation of supply chain excellence. In recent years, our focus has been on expanding and improving that supply chain to offer strength, choice and flexibility. Our new partnership with Vodafone allows us to significantly boost our offering with the scale, innovation and efficiency of Vodafone's trusted network and international voice and data services. Having these capabilities will support both our own growth plans and those of our customers, as we provide the bandwidth and communications infrastructure services they need to support and transform their operations. We look forward to working with Vodafone as we expand our business."
Gary Hill, Head of Vodafone UK's Independent Service Provider Channel, said: "We are seeing a wave of transformation in the enterprise market as businesses absorb digital technologies into their operations to increase mobility and customer responsiveness. As organisations evolve new ways of working their need to keep staff confidently connected regardless of their location has never been greater. We are working closely with customers and our partners to support the delivery of agile infrastructure, expanded network connectivity and total communications solutions. Through Bamboo, more organisations will be able to benefit from access to the capacity and flexibility of Vodafone's wholly-owned and highly-secure global IP network combined with our unbeatable 4G mobile network and associated services."
