Platform One: Probably the most complete connectivity platform in the UK?

Posted by Sanita Karra on May 29, 2018 9:08:00 AM

 

Platform One helps our customers deal with ever more complex connectivity choices in a straightforward, timely and very cost-effective manner. Based on in-house developed expert systems and integrated with our own software defined network core, it's brilliant for customers that need to connect multiple people, places and things - using a mix of different connection types to the private and cloud based services they need to thrive.

It's also a great platform for Managed Service Providers, enabling them to connect their customers to their services, using whatever the most appropriate connections might be.

Set against a background of good news and bad, Platform One sets out to make difficult choices, straightforward. 

The good news is that there are lots of ways that customers can connect people, places and things together. Out in the open market, you can choose from fibre Leased Lines, EFM, ADSL, FTTC, FTTP, 3G and 4G data plans and fixed wireless. And there are lots and lots of providers too. Dozens in fact. It is a VERY competitive market.  

And that’s also the bad news.

Posted by Sanita Karra on May 25, 2018 8:40:00 AM

Your gateway to Platform One service control.

"Dash" short for 'dashboard', is our secure web-based portal that allows direct control of many Platform One services. Dash is and always will be a work-in-progress, with functionality being constantly updated. Ultimately, all Platform One services will be supported in Dash. Our goal is to allow you to obtain competitive quotes for different service types from our panel of suppliers, to order from those quotes, to see an inventory of services that you have ordered (together with their delivery and operational statuses), to observe the performance and availability of those services and to show you billing status for each one.

Posted by Libby Clifford & Patricia Tomkins on May 24, 2018 10:51:36 AM

At FluidOne we really believe in supporting and mentoring young individuals in order to prepare for the work place. This week we took on two A-level students with a keen interest in our business and how we function. This is their firsthand experience:

Our time at FluidOne:

With no expectations of what we would do or participate in, we’ve gained invaluable experience and a deeper insight into how the telecoms industry operates and the people behind the scenes. We found the shadowing of different people in different departments to be an enthralling part of our work experience. Their expertise within the industry and their network of partnerships allowed them to share with us all its quirks - we feel very lucky.

FluidOne is Cool in the Summer: A Work Experience Blog

Posted by Josh S on May 20, 2018 2:28:00 PM

My week at FluidOne has been more interesting than I could’ve imagined. I managed to get my spot here through my mum, as I’m not a huge fan of school or work and didn’t find myself anything for work experience. At the start of this week, I thought it was just a way of getting work experience but it turned into a brilliant week that I wouldn’t want to change for anything.

Written by a talented e̶m̶p̶l̶o̶y̶e̶e̶ genius at FluidOne, this piece puts together compelling thoughts and analysis around business innovation...

Business innovation is perhaps the single most important driver of competitive success. At a time of growing digitisation and changing market trends, organisations are being forced to rethink their product and service innovation strategies in order to adapt to the changing landscape of the global economy.

But what is meant by innovation? During the 1990s, innovation simply meant adopting technology aimed at controlling output and cost. Today, innovation means the implementation of creative ideas, processes and new technologies through which value is created.
