VPD joins forces with Optus and One hub to provide SME with cloud

Small and medium business (SMB) owners forever at the mercy of IT managers, aging servers and expensive phone systems will now be able to access all their telecommunications and IT needs in a ‘one stop shop’.

Onehub is a newly formed Australian technology company bringing together telecommunications leader Optus, and IT specialists VoicePrintData (VPD).

Onehub facilitates a combined and consistent go-to market strategy for multiple partners servicing Australia’s SMB sector. This partnering offers a more streamlined, hybrid service to this vital sector of the economy.

The merging of telco and IT providers, avaialble through selected Optus Business Centres in 4 states, revolutionises user ease, offers improved service and is more cost effective for SMB owners.

Onehub Managing Director, Jody Barlow said, “This collaboration allows SMBs to fix costs for mobile, fixed line, broadband, email, cloud and server access, security, and much more all in one place – and we’ll also take care of all servicing and support. There’s no real need for an IT manager.”

Onehub will act to strengthen the current SMB channel for both Optus and VPD to ensure consistent sales results. It will also pursue rapid expansion via acquisition or implementation of new sub-partners under the

Onehub banner – with new dealerships available throughout the country and with a model that Mr Barlow describes as “very attractive”.

David Palmer, Optus Director, Business Channels said,  “Optus has a significant focus on the SMB market, and we have developed our capabilities to support the communication requirements of business, bringing more choice, value and solutions to business customers than ever before.  We are delighted that our partner community continues to grow with us and are looking forward to the success of Onehub in the future.”

Mr Barlow added, “The convergence of telco and IT means introducing new and innovative products and services to our partners that add value to customers and generate new revenue streams for our dealer partners.”

With the expertise of IT industry leaders VoicePrintData, Onehub is the fastest way to keep SMB’s in sync and to ensure superior data confidentiality.

“VPD’s cutting edge IT services assists Onehub to allow businesses to securely share and control files in the cloud with confidence,” said Luke Briggs, VPD Sales Director.

Onehub dealers are now open to SMB customers in Melbourne, Sydney, Newcastle, Brisbane and Adelaide with new dealerships opening on the Gold Coast in the next month. Multiple other sites are planned to open across the country in the next 3-6 months.
