KCOM Group announces unified business strategy
IT and communications services provider KCOM Group has announced today its intention to bring together all its business activities to operate as a single brand.
From 4 April 2016, customers of KCOM Group’s Smart421, Kcom, Eclipse and KC brands will be served by a new-look KCOM brand.
The move reflects the activities undertaken by the company to become a more integrated business better able to focus on the needs of its customers. It is the latest stage of a transformation programme that included the sale of KCOM Group’s national network infrastructure for £90m in December.
Chief Executive Bill Halbert said: “The move to a new brand reflects our continued transition from being a network provider into a business that uses its experience and expertise to develop IT and communications services that connect customers with the things that matter to them.
“Bringing together all our capability and expertise under a single brand will give all our customers visibility of and access to our full range of services and enable us to respond to their needs in a more agile and flexible way.
“For our Hull and East Yorkshire customers, our transformation gives us the capacity to accelerate our deployment of ultrafast fibre broadband and create a future-proof platform that has the capacity to satisfy the demands of homes and business as they evolve.
“The changes we are making will help us to deliver greater value to all stakeholders and position us well for further growth.”
