COMMUNICATIONS specialists Onecom is celebrating after scooping a major industry award.

He said: ‘This award represents national recognition for Onecom as the provider to beat when it comes to integrated business communications solutions.

‘As a company, we are renowned for our innovative, streamlined and cost-effective solutions and for our commitment to excellence in customer experience. I am delighted that this has been recognised by our peers in the industry with this award.’

The judges said: ‘A commitment to ensuring every customer has a positive experience was what made this company stand out.

‘This was combined with excellent commercials and a commitment to staff improvement.’
