Contract Win

Toople Plc (LSE: TOOP), a provider of bespoke telecom services to UK SMEs, is pleased to announce that it has signed a contract with one of the UK's leading utility switching businesses. The deal is expected to result in significant additional monthly revenue for the Company.

Under the terms of the agreement, which runs for an initial three years, Toople will provide customers of the Manchester based business, which is one of the leading energy providers in the UK B2B space with a full range of products and services.  These  include: business broadband, fibre, EFM and Ethernet data services, business mobile phones, cloud PBX and SIP trunking and traditional services (calls and lines) all of which are delivered and managed through Merlin, the Group's proprietary software platform.

Toople will gain access to the new partner's sales team and anticipates generating a significant number of orders from this channel over the coming months.  Following set up, training and implantation of Toople's Merlin provisioning platform, services are expected to be live within their own in-house sales team from the first week in August. All new customers coming through the channel will contract with Toople directly.

It is anticipated that this will be the first of several similar agreements as Toople seeks to scale its business by launching a full partnering sales and marketing channel.

Commenting on the contract win, Andy Hollingworth, CEO of Toople said:

"This is a great contract win for Toople, as we look to significantly expand our footprint among small to medium sized businesses across the UK.  It gives us access to over 35,000 UK SMEs, who currently receive smarter financial choices for water, gas and electricity and are increasingly looking for connectivity services and managed telecoms solutions.  This is a requirement that Toople can fulfil.

"The fact that we won this contract is a great endorsement for our business and underpins our growing reputation for delivering robust and reliable services at affordable prices with great customer service."

He added:

"Accelerating growth of hosted telephony services is a key focus of the Company due to its attractive margins and the increasingly competitive nature of the SME broadband market. We firmly believe that one of our key competitive strengths is our Merlin platform, which allows scalability for the business through automation and provides a strong customer relationship management interface."
