Three is the magic number for Incom-CNS

The Incom-CNS Group is celebrating being undefeated champions of Unified Communications in the UK, as they are crowned winners of the Best UC Solution Award at the Comms National Awards, for the third consecutive year.

The annual Comms National Awards is billed as the ICT industry Oscars and the coveted honours are hard fought. The industry’s ‘who’s who’ came together for a much anticipated, if unusual, ‘virtual’ awards ceremony last week which was superbly hosted by radio and TV presenter, Colin Murray, and live streamed by organisers, Comms Dealer Magazine.

The quantity and high standard of entries across UC and Cloud categories this year was reflective of the level of digital transformation taking place across the UK in 2020, as organisations attempt to mitigate the effects of coronavirus on their business and implement remote solutions for their workforce.

Having previously won this prestigious award both in 2018 for a solution at The Range and again in 2019 for Chubb Fire & Security, Incom-CNS were shortlisted this year for a complex project undertaken for global wire systems manufacturer, Gripple, and overcame a record number of rival solutions to retain the title.

The judges were impressed by Incom-CNS’ implementation of a Mitel MiVoice Business solution across multiple UK sites, as well as a significant SIP migration across the whole company estate. The team at Incom-CNS worked tirelessly to expediate the installation to ensure remote working was in place and fully functional as lockdown loomed in March 2020.

The solution at Gripple, bespoke to the customer’s needs, has proven so successful that phase 2 will see the solution rolled out globally to sites in the US, Australia, Japan and across Europe.

“We are thrilled to win this award for the third time – which is unheard of in such a competitive marketplace! This is a true testament to the wonderful team we have at Incom-CNS and we are incredibly proud of their achievement.” David Hughes, Incom-CNS Group CEO

ICT Channel partners and colleagues have joined the Incom-CNS team in celebrating this incredibly impressive achievement.

“Totally chuffed for the team at Incom-CNS; it's such a wonderful thing when the good guys in the business get the recognition they so richly deserve. We love both what you achieve and the incredible way in which you achieve it.” Richard Roberts, Mitel Vice President

The COVID-19 pandemic and economic disruption it has caused has not stopped the Incom-CNS team from putting together amazing solutions for its customers. Back in the spring, Comms Dealer Magazine also acknowledged the phenomenal work Incom-CNS engineers selflessly undertake every day supporting frontline workers in the pandemic.
