O2 Business has launched a new digital platform that offers bespoke technical services for small UK businesses. 

The “pick and mix” offering allows SMEs to chose between a range of products and services with a one-off billing to help them move towards more digital business models. 

Products on offer include storage services from cloudco Box, Microsoft Office 365 and McAfee Multi-Access, which provides protection for up to five devices simultaneously. 

A calling service, Just Call Me, which can turn a mobile phone number into a bridge for conference calls, and VoWIFI service TuGo for Business will be included “soon”. 

In addition, O2 is offering free consultation and setup from dedicated staff. 

The operator said the launch is the result of a £20 million (€25 million) investment over the past two years.  

Ben Dowd, O2’s Business Director, commented: “We want to help more small businesses to grow and thrive in an increasingly digital Britain, and we believe a key step is to take the hassle out of technology.  

“Our partners are instrumental in providing right tech to help companies work smarter, faster and more efficiently – and our aim is to make it simpler than ever for businesses across the UK to get involved.” 

The launch follows research from O2 that found 60 percent of small business owners believed technical solutions were too expensive and presented “a barrier for growth”, with a further 52 percent having admitted to searching for help online.

Dowd added: “At O2 we know that no two small businesses are the same, and the technology which will help each business fulfil their full potential varies widely. We want to treat each small business as an individual, which is why we offer a ‘Pick and Mix’ approach to our entire new range of products and services.”
