  • Labours plan to threaten the industry we have built

    In its long history, Comms Dealer has never taken a stance on a political issue, but we felt we had to declare a position on Labour’s policy to provide free broadband and nationalise Openreach. This is an existential threat to our amazing industry, thousands of livelihoods and will inevitably lead to an investment vacuum across the ICT sector.

  • Why trust is so important to your business growth

    ICT channel businesses, whether serving reseller partners or organisations in every type of sector will regard trust as a central pillar of their customer relationship. In this month’s Kaleidoscope, we look at how companies can build trust and create long standing customer relationships.

  • Happy People drive success in the fast-paced channel

    ‘Being ‘happily employed’ is the new objective for people in work and there is no doubt that an intelligently built culture is key to an organisation’s long term success’. In this month’s Kaleidoscope, we look at how Channel organisations have modernised their workplaces, improved workforce interaction and made efforts to keep staff feeling valued and respected.
