Why do our Partners favour 9 as their service provider when larger organisations can pitch all the potential attractions of scale and familiarity? The answer is devastatingly simple. At 9, we are committed and equipped to go way beyond the simple provision of products at a compelling price. We recognise that our Partners sit one place away from the end business customer, so by investing in bespoke services and support that can directly help them to position and sell their own products and services effectively, we can all win.

Our “Free to Perform” mantra perfectly describes this approach and how we bring it to life. By allowing our Partners to focus on the job in hand, namely driving their own business forwards, we can transform the rate at which they can achieve their objectives. For example, we recognise that business customers are increasingly well informed and demanding. Changes in regulation and compliance such as GDPR and e-privacy abound. In addition, making the correct choices around communications infrastructure has become critical as business processes become ever more digitally based and integrated. We are energetically proactive in helping our Partners to understand these market dynamics and how best to respond advantageously to them.

Breaking in to new market areas is not straightforward, but 9 can share the practical tools and tips that our Partners require to succeed. We are neither prescriptive nor formulaic and prefer to work individually with each Partner to identify what specifically we can do to help then succeed. Maybe it is by offering a managed billing solution to ensure that the nuances of a new product area do not handicap their ability to invoice and collect payments on time. Perhaps it will be award winning marketing support to help them construct campaigns that actually make a difference to lead generation. Alternatively, they may adopt our Virtual Office solution which removes the burden of provisioning and customer support, allowing our Partners to spend more time on business growth.

We take care to understand why a Partner may want to expand their product portfolio, or realign their sales approach. For example, everyone in our sector is championing the need to respond to the demise of BT’s copper-based line rental products in 2025. However, we believe that simply saying stop selling that and sell this instead is no way to succeed. Our range of Mitel based, eve hosted voice and SIP trunk services present a welcome alternative to the me too BroadSoft or other unproven solutions, but it is the advice, collateral and support that we provide to help our Partners to sell eve that is our differentiator.

The increasing convergence of IT and Communications markets presents a scintillating opportunity for our Partners, so having a reliable, capable, proactive and supportive service provider could well prove to be of paramount importance. Our track record at 9 makes us a compelling choice for our current Partners, but we are equally keen to engage with new organisations who have the desire to win. Why not take some time to talk to us and let 9 leave you Free to Perform.
