VMB Chooses NE Experts to Join Elite Group

VIRGIN Media Business has confirmed Gateshead-based technology experts ITPS as one of only 10 strategic partners, and the only North East IT firm to win that level of recognition from the big name brand. Strategic partners are drawn from the top ten percent of Virgin Media Business’ Gold partners across the UK

ITPS is the region’s biggest North East headquartered IT specialist, with a team of 92 people specialising in IT consultancy, implementation, data centre provision and unified communications, as well as support services and workspace and disaster recovery. It recently invested £750,000 in high speed, large capacity communications and cloud-based infrastructure at its data centres in Sunderland, Newcastle and Gateshead.

The criteria used to award strategic partner status included ITPS being measured on customer feedback, technical expertise, volume of business and the ability to support Virgin Media Business’s product range at the highest level.

Managing director Garry Sheriff said: “This is the ultimate status awarded by Virgin Media Business to its partners, so it puts us in the top tier, and at the level everyone else aspires to be at.

“We are very happy to have met the stringent evaluation required to join this elite group. Not least because our strong relationship with Virgin Media Business means we can continue to deliver more for less to our clients.

“Virgin Media Business is the market leader in services that make technologies such as cloud and unified communications available and affordable, and by working with them we can help clients of all sizes unlock more value from their budgets and access the best technology solutions for their business.

“Although we have clients across the UK and Europe our roots are very firmly in the North East, and we are proud to represent the region and be recognised by a brand of this size for our ability to deliver great customer service, and strategic business solutions that help our clients operate more successfully.”

Jason King, head of business partners at Virgin Media Business, said: “We choose our partners carefully, and have worked side by side with ITPS for over a decade, using our combined expertise to develop technology solutions that meet the challenges their clients face.

“This long standing relationship has given us faith in the depth and breadth of their technical knowledge and experience, which make them ideal candidates for strategic partner status.”
