Vapour Cloud hailed as one of the UK’s fastest growing cloud voice partners

A man opens his mouth as if speaking and a cloud of letters comes out.

Digital transformation specialist Vapour Cloud has been recognised as one of the fastest growing mid-market cloud voice partners in the UK, after the company sold 3,000 Avaya licenses during the second half of 2018.

The landmark figure caps a successful spell for Vapour’s cloud voice division, having seen a 500% growth over the past two years. During 2018 alone, the business recorded net recurring revenue of 96%, growing 51% across the year.

Vapour also looks set to continue its successful expansion over the next twelve months, with work to supply 4,000 Avaya licenses already forecast for 2019.

As part of this continued growth, the company recently announced a new partnership with Manchester-based Avaya service specialist IPNetix, designed to strengthen the pre- and post- sales offering for Vapour Cloud voice customers throughout the UK, the company said.

“Working closely with the IPNetix team makes a lot of sense to us,” said Tim Mercer, Vapour CEO. “There is far more competition than there is collaboration in the IT Channel. But by combining complimentary resources and expertise, clients receive a far more value-adding ‘package’ in their respective fields.”

Vapour hopes the collaboration will play a key role in its growth over the coming year, with Mercer aiming to expand the business by at least another 50% during 2019.

“IPNetix works so closely with Avaya, that their technical engineering knowledge and insight into what’s coming next from this communications giant, is the perfect addition to our proposition,” Mercer continued.

“We have a huge year ahead of us, when it comes to the omnichannel comms solutions we provide to clients, and the relationships with Avaya and IPNetix are crucial components in our onward growth.”
