Cellhire received the highest accolade from O2

Cellhire, the York-based mobile communications provider, yesterday received the highest accolade from the leading national network, O2.

Cellhire is one of only ten companies across the UK to be invited to join O2’s award winning Data Centre of Excellence (DCoE) programme in recognition of what O2 describes as ‘exceptional mobile data expertise.’

‘Mobile data’ refers to the increasingly popular BlackBerry devices which allow email and internet access whilst on the move. Also included in the category are datacards and USB modems, which enable customers to access the web from their laptops irrespective of location.

In order to join the DCoE programme, Cellhire has put its entire customer-facing staff through a rigorous and comprehensive product training programme, developed by O2 in conjunction with BlackBerry manufacturers, RIM. Membership is coveted, because it conveys a valuable message to potential customers, who know that they are not only in safe hands, but that they can access the best knowledge and service support in the industry.

Matt Bennett, Cellhire’s UK Managing Director commented “We’ve been working extremely hard this year to train and focus our staff on data solutions. The effort is already paying off in terms of additional business, but the fact that O2 recognise our efforts and deem us to be amongst their elite resellers is a real boost for Cellhire.”

Official supplier at the Cannes Film Festival until 2010

In a month full of prestigious film awards Cellhire has won an award of its very own. The mobile solutions provider has secured another 3 year contract with the Cannes Film Festival establishing it as the only official mobile communication rental supplier at the event.

Since 1998 Cellhire has held official supplier accreditation for the annual Cannes Film Festival, providing solutions to the media, photographers and corporates visiting the festival. The renewal of the contract is testimony to the company’s excellent relationship with the Festival’s organizing body, MIFF, and Cellhire’s unmatched service cards.

Cellhire solutions ensure that all visitors to the festival can keep in touch with friends and colleagues back home through voice or email devices.

If customers are unable to rent a solution from Cellhire prior to the event the company has an on-site presence within the Palais. Last year the stand fulfilled a record number of rentals. Cellhire hopes to build on its previous successes this year, beating last years record and demonstrating why it is the only official rental supplier at the Cannes Film Festival.
