Comms contract for Spiritel

Spiritel, the London-based telecommunications services company, has signed a five year contract worth up to £1.25m with hospitality company Regent Inns.

Spiritel will provide Regent with VPN management, hosted VoIP and customer WiFi to their 100 sites across the UK, their head office in Borehamwood and to a number of their field-based staff. This contract follows the successful completion of a trial earlier this year.

Spiritel worked with a partner to deploy the service using Mitel’s 3600 hosted VoIP platform. Spiritel’s recently restructured technologies division managed the development of the solution for Regent Inns, hosting the 3600 platform and managing the networking services provided to the customer. The business division is managing the nationwide roll-out of the service where all voice and data services will be invoiced on a single monthly bill.

Alastair Mills, chief executive of Spiritel said: ‘We are delighted to have signed this contract to provide Regent Inns with a fully converged voice and data solution for their offices and outlets. It is particularly significant in that it is the UK’s largest multi-site hosted VoIP deal and Spiritel’s largest contract win to date. The solution is representative of an accelerating migration towards converged IP based communications and having been won in competition with two of the UK’s largest telecoms providers, demonstrates our ability to generate significant new revenues in this fast growing market.’
