Award winning partnership gives Yorkshire businesses a voice

Yorkshire businesses Onyx Group and Active Voice & Data are celebrating after being announced as winners of the “Private Cloud Solution of the Year” award at the recent Unify annual partner conference in London.

The award was in recognition of the innovative measures displayed in the delivery of an all-in-one hosted communications solution for South Yorkshire Credit Union (SYCU). The two firms enabled SYCU to adapt to fluctuations in call volume and allow them to process conferencing, voicemail, and call routing through a virtualised private branch exchange.

Designed and implemented by Active Voice & Data, the solution was hosted within Onyx Group’s nearby ISO 27001 accredited Yorkshire Data Centre.

Unify, a joint venture between private equity firm The Gores Group and Siemens AG, the largest engineering company in Europe, recognised that as one of the leading IT infrastructure & support suppliers in the UK, Onyx Group were able to provide Active Voice & Data with unrivalled levels of resilience, security and availability for the telecoms platform developed for SYCU.

John Toal, sales and marketing director at Onyx Group, said: “We’re delighted that our partnership with a fellow Yorkshire-based company has resulted in a prestigious award win for the region.

“This is an exciting time for both companies and by working together we are able to deliver robust unified communications solutions within Onyx Group’s resilient core network. The award win is a testament to the skills and expertise we have in Yorkshire and the hard work that has been carried out by both parties.”

Iain Simpson, managing director at Active Voice & Data, said:  “We see our partnership with Onyx delivering substantial and long term benefits to businesses across the region via the provision of a modern and secure telecoms solution, and they were the perfect partner for us due to their high levels of availability and service level agreement guarantees.”

The award is the latest in a long-line of achievements for Onyx Group, who are still celebrating their recent success at the annual Kaseya IT conference where they picked up the prestigious “Mid-Sized Managed Services provider of the year” award for the UK & Ireland.
