Voda distributors and ISPs to be inducted


Vodafone’s distributor and service provider partners, which contribute one third of Vodafone indirect revenues, will be reorganised through Vodafone’s new VPS unit in Manchester next quarter

Vodafone distributors Anglia Telecom and Fone Logistics, being integrated under new parent Daisy Communications, and service providers, including Alternative Networks, will be reorganised through its new channel division Vodafone Partner Services (VPS) next quarter.

Vodafone UK enterprise director Peter Kelly said: “VPS is addresses all dealers under a single programme. Through coming quarter, it will also address distribution and ISP partners, which for the time being will still work through our indirect team in Newbury.”

Kelly said around two thirds of Vodafone’s indirect revenue comes from its VPS dealers partners, of which it has reviewed its old base and selected around 400 to work with directly going forward.

The other third comes from distribution and service providers partners, including Daisy Communications’ combined Anglia Telecom and Fone Logistics business.
