Spiritel in £1m hotel comms deal


Service provider SpiriTel has signed up its second hotel group this year to a full communications package in a deal worth £1 million.

SpiriTel, who refused to reveal the identity of the European hotel group, has agreed a three-year contract to supply integrated network services to all 21 of its UK hotels and head office.

It follows a similar package announced at the beginning of January, worth £600,000, which it won from BT, bringing its cross sale order value to £3 million since April 2008.

SpiriTel CEO Alastair Mills said: “I am delighted to have secured another significant contract win for SpiriTel which provides further evidence of the viability of our integrated model in a challenging economic climate.

“SpiriTel has a proven track record of providing innovative and cost effective solutions and our customers are increasingly looking to us to help deliver cost savings. We believe the Company is well placed to win further market share.”

SpiriTel reported a 62 per cent year-on-year rise in turnover for the six months to October 31, 2008, from £6.8 million to £11.1 million.

It was SpiriTel’s fourth consecutive quarter for profit growth. Its customer base increased to 2,200 business customers from 920 in 2007.

SpiriTel bought reseller WN1 and services provider ED Communications last year.
