Eckoh secures six sizeable UK contracts
Benefits of restructured UK sales function coming through with new, larger UK accounts.
Eckoh plc (AIM:ECK), the global provider of secure payment products and customer contact solutions, has since interim results on November 22nd 2017 secured six sizeable UK contract wins across the payments, insurance, healthcare and mobile telecoms sectors – the latter being a contract with one of the UK's largest mobile network providers.
Eckoh previously indicated at its interim results that the restructuring of its UK sales function would ensure a greater focus on larger strategic accounts, leveraging the strength of the entire Eckoh product portfolio, and that the benefits of the restructuring would come through in the second half. Today's announcement demonstrates that the Company has begun to see the positive impact of this initiative as these contract wins constitute a mix of both secure payments and customer contact solutions, and the pipeline of UK business is strong.
Commenting on the UK contract wins, Nik Philpot, Chief Executive Officer Eckoh plc, adds:
"We are very pleased with the recent progress we have made in the UK, with strong demand for both our secure payments offering and our customer contact solutions. Having committed the time and resource to restructure our UK sales function to focus on larger, more strategic accounts, the contracts won are a welcome validation of our strategy."
