Comms Dealer award 2017

South West Communications Group has won the Reseller Sales Team of the Year Award 2017 at an industry awards ceremony in London.

The Comms Dealer Sales & Marketing Awards, held at the Park Lane Hotel, acknowledges the skill, determination and success of sales and marketing teams in the telecoms and IT industry.

swcomms was named the best large reseller for being the fastest growing Gamma Horizon partner in 2016 following the adoption of their cloud-hosted telephone system. Our achievement had already been recognised by being awarded Platinum Partner status from Gamma. 

Brian Lodge, swcomms’ managing director, said: “I am extremely proud of everyone involved in the rollout of our Gamma Horizon solution. We continue to get great results with this product and this award illustrates our determination to grow our presence in the cloud telephony market.”

swcomms chose the Horizon product when it became clear the future of business telephony services was heading into the cloud. With Gamma already one of their connectivity suppliers, the adoption process was relatively easy. 

Since then, swcomms has deployed cloud-hosted telephone systems to a range of businesses and from small companies to multi-site organisations, including GP surgery-localities and estate agents.

Former newspaper journalist, Caroline joined the company in 2008 with no previous knowledge of the industry.

She set about stripping back all the jargon to produce plain English marketing collateral to support the sales teams. Now slightly more well-versed in the dark arts of voice, connectivity and data services, Caroline writes blogs, case studies, data sheets and social media updates to engage with potential and existing customers.

This industry is far cry from her previous working life when she worked as communications manager for Exeter Chiefs and Northampton Saints.
