ONECOM, the UK’s largest independent telecommunications provider, has secured a five-year agreement with FinTrU to provide telecoms solutions to its Belfast and north west offices.

Onecom, which opened a Northern Ireland office two years ago and has grown its sales to more than £2 million, offers a variety of different products and services to help businesses, ranging from sole trader to multi-nationals.

Its regional office head Paul Lawther said: “This is a significant deal for Onecom as our Belfast office heads towards its second anniversary. Last year we secured significant contracts with a number of new customers such as the Irish Football Association and Concern Worldwide.

“FinTrU is one of the most exciting companies to come out of Northern Ireland in recent years and we’re delighted to have secured this new partnership. There is a good synergy between both companies who demonstrate an entrepreneurial nature with customers at their core.”

He added: “Onecom and FinTrU are both fast growing companies and this partnership will only further strengthen our market share. We have a significant pipeline of agreements signed for 2019 which puts us in a strong position for continued growth this year.”

Founded in December 2013, FinTrU is a multi-award winning financial services company that is committed to giving local talent the opportunity to work on the global stage with the largest international investment banks.

Last June it announced plans to create 605 jobs over the next five years including a new office in the north west. FinTrU helps global investment banks meet their regulatory requirements.

Richard McGuinness, chief operating officer of FinTrU, said: “Given the nature of our business, we needed a reliable telecoms company who could provide a scalable solution as we continue to grow our operations in Belfast and the north west.

“Onecom provided a solution that utilised the latest technology and they really impressed us with their approach that aligns with our own growth plans. We look forward to working with the team over the next five years and beyond.”
