Fluidata in 2015

Posted by Dan Pope on 02/01/15 08:00
Last week (and technically year) Fluidata published our round-up of 2014 which included some of our own personal highlights as well as the biggest issues and talking points in the online industry. At Fluidata we believe that the UK digital divide is an issue that is becoming increasingly prominent, which is why since 2009 we have been working on our Service Exchange Platform (SEP) to provide Internet access to areas affected by rural broadband.

As many of you already know, 2014 has been an exceptional year for Fluidata as we were awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation 2014 for our Service Exchange Platform (SEP) solution. This innovative solution has managed to alleviate the issue of rural broadband for millions of households and small businesses across the UK, thus reducing the digital divide and enabling digital literacy for a wider proportion of the population.

The Importance of Customer Service in the Digital Age

Posted by Dan Pope on 25/07/14 10:26
Customer service: it’s something that has previously just been associated with businesses that offer personal services to customers; however over the years it has become increasingly important for businesses in the technology sector. It is important that companies understand the importance of customer service when it comes to expanding their businesses and encouraging client retention. However, we are still seeing cases where companies feel that they are above the need to provide a good level of customer service, which is why Fluidata does things a little differently.

Competition in fibre

Last week I moved into a new flat in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park village in Stratford. By working within the industry for over 4 years I knew a pain and delay for installation awaited me. To my surprise I had a pleasant experience with my connectivity, compared to others who have recently moved into new build properties, such my MD, Piers Daniell, who moved into his flat to find a standard BT socket.
