Joining forces to support partners with #WhatsNext… together

As the new shoots of recovery appear, it’s time to plan for future success

Although UK business entered 2021 still in the shadow of the pandemic, the New Year has brought new hope, with vaccinations being rolled out across the country. These first signs of recovery mean that, however you or your customers have been affected, now’s the time to look forward and plan for a post-COVID future. So what’s next, together?

To help overcome the unprecedented challenges faced last year, many organisations accelerated digital transformation to gain the agility needed to improve the way they work and, where necessary, stay operational and minimise disruption through remote working and collaboration. The challenge this year is growth and to make the most of the recovery. At Vodafone Business, we’ve been working alongside our partners, reassuring them that we are here for the long haul to provide the best value and experience for them and their customers.

Why Vodafone – Connectivity?

Welcome to a new frontier in connectivity where bandwidth-hungry businesses are migrating from a myriad of traditional products to a new generation of fully integrated connectivity solutions. This provides a huge opportunity for partners like you to help your customers and it’s a journey we can take together. The connectivity needs of today’s businesses have been changing for some time, made all the more urgent by the pandemic, which has seen a big rise in remote working, the shift of processes to the cloud, and cybercriminals targeting vulnerable organisations. Businesses are now more dependent than ever on the availability and reliability of the internet. We believe that connectivity solutions designed to help businesses to be better are essential to flourishing in this new world of work.

Essentially, how to close the gap between provider and home to banish lags on video calls, poor connections during meetings and slow-to-load software. Making the jump from stop-gap to future-ready. With a recession looming, it’s vital this money is invested in the right place to optimise performance and minimise costs.

Don’t let home working be a hackers’ paradise

The move to remote working requires a stronger line of cyber defence due the increased vulnerability of data being shared across multiple locations and devices. With hackers striking on average every 39 seconds, it’s no surprise that the information security market is forecast to grow to $170.4 billion in 2022. This creates a big opportunity for IT solutions that offer productivity as well as protection. Find out how you we can work together to capitalise on this demand by delivering solutions that protect your customers against cyber threats across different networks and locations, without sacrificing speed or flexibility so they can rationalise their digital technology and cybersecurity spend.
