A SUNDERLAND-BASED communications business has been awarded ‘platinum partner’ status by Vodafone.
The recognition for CCS Mobile confirms the company as one of the top independent dealers in the United Kingdom.
CCS has again been recognised by Vodafone for its capability in unified communications, Microsoft 365 and One Net technology and for its core business solutions.
It becomes one of only a small number of firms to be awarded platinum partner status and the only independent dealer located between Lancashire and the Borders to be recognised as having unified communications competencies by Vodafone.
