Cellhire makes HSBC Global Connections finalists

Cellhire, the international mobile solutions specialist, has been shortlisted along with 44 other regional finalists as part of the HSBC Global Connections competition.

Over the past three years, the HSBC Global Connections Competition has sent 138 dynamic businesses to International Exchanges in some of the world’s fastest-growing markets and awarded access to over £3bn in funding. This year the field was widened to take in companies with a turnover of up to £100m.

The 45 Regional Finalists in the competition represent businesses across the UK which show the innovation, distinctiveness and strategic thinking that makes them future global players. The 45 finalists will progress to the regional finals in June and face a panel of judges who will whittle the list down to select National Finalists before the overall winners for 2014 are decided.

Tim Williams, Cellhire’s Chairman and CEO said: “We are absolutely delighted to be shortlisted out of so many businesses across the UK. HSBC’s recognition of our progress expanding globally is greatly appreciated and I am very much looking forward to June.”

The next 12 months will see Cellhire supply competing teams, key sponsors and the worlds’ media with telecoms as they attend the FIFA World Cup in Brazil. Recent successes for the business have included delivering over 15,000 connections at the Sochi Winter Olympics.

Cellhire plans to continue expanding its existing business portfolio internationally, particularly in BRIC economies.

Cellhire launches fixed line channel

Cellhire, the international communications specialist, is now able to offer a range of new solutions to business customers, including Office broadband, line rental and next generation voice services. Cellhire’s Fixed Line portfolio is made up of market leading products from some of the UK’s biggest providers, allowing the company to offer truly independent solutions to best fit customer’s requirements. The business is able to provide calls and line packages and connectivity that are tailored to meet the specific communications requirements of businesses. From single analogue business lines to complex multi-site solutions, the range of products and services are highly scalable, meaning they can evolve with a business as it grows.

Working with partners including Vodafone, BT and Gamma, Cellhire has created a portfolio of converged solutions ideal for business customers. Cellhire’s existing mobile relationship with Vodafone has enabled the company to adapt quickly and ready the business to deliver solutions across the UK.

Initial products on offer will include standard lines, DSL, ISDN and SIP trunking as well as dedicated internet access channels. As part of a fully converged solution, Cellhire also offers its business mobile service, Cellhire Connect, delivering many cost saving benefits such as free inter-business calls.

Matt Bennett, Cellhire’s UK Managing Director said, “Cellhire’s distinguished history in the telecoms sector provides us with an ideal platform to launch these new services. We already have excellent relationships with our partners having worked with them for so many years and we’re looking forward to delivering first class solutions and service to our customers and growing our portfolio in 2014.”

The company had a record year in 2012 delivering mobile communications to key Olympic sponsors, Olympic Organisations and the world’s media as they travelled to London for the Games. This was followed by similar success at the recent Winter Olympics in Russia. This has given the business the opportunity and momentum to expand in to new markets.

“The time is right for us to move in to converged telecoms and our success at the London Olympics has given us the investment power crucial to succeeding in the market place. We expect Fixed Line to be very lucrative for the UK business and we want to do it right, with the right people and the appropriate investment to make it successful.” said Mr Bennett.
