Payment and fleet services firm, Radius Payment Solutions has launched Radius Connect, a converged technology, mobile and fixed line telecommunications provider to UK businesses. 

The new company is designed to provide customers with access to multiple telecommunications providers, mobile networks and technology solutions, as well as independent consulting services and implementation support. It is the result of three recent acquisitions to create Radius Connect brands Pure Telecom, Trinity Maxwell and Reliance Networks. 

Each of the companies will bring their teams and service delivery arms to Radius Connect, providing a UK-wide capability covering companies across the City of London through to regional businesses and enterprises. The leadership team from Pure Telecom, including director David Hayward, will work with Radius Connect’s group managing director Ray Ferris to lead the combined company forward. 

The consolidated new business will have a subscriber base of more than 70,000 customers across mobile and fixed line services. The company can provide services based on solutions from industry-leading providers such as Microsoft, IBM, Cisco, Avaya and 8x8, as well as services from BT, EE, Gamma, O2, and Vodafone. 

Ferris stated: ‘Using our combination of data, networking and industry insight means we can support companies of all sizes in getting the smartest approach to their operations, differentiating us and how we deliver value. We believe our buy and build strategy provides us with a unique opportunity to scale up our operations and achieve better results for our customers, so this is just the start of our rapid organic growth and further M&A activity over the next few months.’

Hayward added: ‘Our approach is based on giving customers access to a wide range of market leading products backed up with independent consultancy, installation services and award-winning customer service. From our previous regional success, we now have the backing of a company with a turnover of £2.5bn, and expanded access to a fabulous product portfolio, which will enable us to accelerate our growth plans for the future both in the UK and internationally. We want to continue what made our customers happy, but across far more areas than we could have delivered in the past.’
