Medium businesses combining fixed and mobile connectivity can claim tech fund valued at 10% of new contract
London, UK – 17th May 2022 – Connectivity champion Virgin Media O2 Business today announces the introduction of its ‘Get More Fund’, helping provide medium businesses with access to valuable tech to support their digital transformation journeys. Through the Get More Fund, current Virgin Media Business or O2 Business customers that extend their contracts to take both internet connection (broadband or leased lines) and mobile products will now be able to put 10% of the value of their new plan towards a range of hardware options for their teams, from smart phones to printers. New customers that take out both internet connectivity and mobile products will receive 10% of their total monthly contract value in a ‘Get More’ fund.
The initiative is open to all organisations with 11 to 249 people across the UK, and aims to help equip medium businesses with the tech they need to work smarter in a hybrid working world – whether it’s from the office, from home or on the go. Virgin Media O2 Business customers can redeem their Get More Fund against a range of products including smartphones, tablets laptops, desktops, and printers.
To support medium businesses on their digital acceleration journeys, the ‘Get More Fund’ also provides a package of other new benefits for customers, including:
Catherine Amran, newly appointed Director of SMB at Virgin Media O2 Business, comments: “Today, the workplace is truly anywhere. We know that medium businesses are investing significantly in kitting their teams out with the tech they need to work flexibly, wherever they are, and get the best out of their people. But we also know that when it comes to hybrid working, there’s no ‘one size fits all’ – and many businesses simply don’t have the time to spend researching the latest tech. We think it’s time for medium businesses to expect more from their connectivity providers: so we’ve launched the Get More Fund to give them access to the devices and connectivity they need, with an expert review to help them make the right tech choices – all backed by hassle-free, always-on customer service.
“As Virgin Media O2’s first joint service offering for medium business, the launch of ‘Get More’ is also an important step forward for us as a brand – as we bring together the best of our mobile and broadband networks to add value for our customers.”
Customers can redeem their Get More Fund to source their products through Virgin Media O2 Business.
Virgin Media O2 Business’ full portfolio of medium business products spans Business Mobile (including handset and sim-only plans, as well as data sharing options), Business Broadband, and leased lines for business (otherwise known as Dedicated Internet Access) – complemented by a range of business tools (such as Microsoft 365, Sophos and MaaS360).
