Telcoinabox enjoys successful UK launch

Telcoinabox has got its UK franchise launch off to a great start with the signing of two franchise owners and agreements with four major wholesalers

lthough telecommunications franchise Telcoinabox is a new brand to the UK it has already signed two franchise owners and has gained four new major wholesale customers. Telcoinabox, which packages telephony products and distributes them through its franchise owners and wholesale service providers, has recently signed deals with wholesalers Gamma Telecom (fixed wire and mobile), Opal, Openreach, and Tiscali.

When Telcoinabox was first founded in Australia in 2002 it revolutionised the Australian telecommunications industry. Since then the company has become one of the leading telecommunication companies in Australia and has expanded into New Zealand, as well as the UK earlier this year.

The Telcoinabox concept has been a hit with consumers in Australia because of the low cost, high quality services it provides. Not only does it provide quality products but the Telcoinabox business model enables its franchise owners to work from a home-based office, thus helping reduce overheads and keeping the general day-to-day business costs low.

Telcoinabox franchise owners have four main focuses: getting the customer via sales and marketing; keeping the customer by providing excellent customer service; ensuring that payments are made on time, which is made easier by the Telcoinabox support systems; and to work efficiently to ensure their business is profitable.

With its experience of franchising in Australia and New Zealand, Telcoinabox has developed a franchise package that provides thorough training and support. All Telcoinabox franchise owners are entitled to one week of training, which is held at the company's head office in London. The training course has been created with the aim of ensuring that franchise owners are equipped with all the tools, knowledge and information they need to successfully launch a Telcoinabox business.

As well as this, Telcoinabox will provide comprehensive ongoing support teams to ensure that franchise owners are supported in all aspects of their business. The support provided by Telcoinabox includes advice and guidance (on how to achieve steady business growth for example) and also practical support for the day-to-day running of the business, such as billing, systems and providing services.

A Telcoinabox franchise can be owned and operated by either an individual wanting to start up their own business or an already trading business owner looking to expand their business by selling telecommunication products.

Franchise owner candidates do not need to have previous experience in the telecommunication industry - however they should have a strong sales or marketing background. As Telcoinabox provides a majority of the 'back end' support function, franchise owners will only need to focus on sales and growing their business.

With Telcoinabox's recent signings in the UK it is on course to become a major player in the UK telecommunications industry and the company is looking for suitable franchise owners to aid its expansion across the nation.
