CUSTOMER SUCCESS STORY

Success through Acquisition.

Founded by Barry Ford, Powercom has grown from strength to strength largely due to the company moving swiftly with technology advances and following an acquisition path to grow the business.

Powercom

3000 customers / $2.4m per year

Founder, Barry Ford, is one of the first ten Telcoinabox service providers. He launched Powercom Pacific in 2004. The business has grown from strength to strength largely due to the company moving swiftly with technology advances and following an acquisition path to grow the business.

Between 2007 and 2014 the company has made six micro-acquisitions of small to medium sized telco providers. Most recently they acquired MontiMedia, a former ISPOne customer migrating more than 2,000 customers across to the Telcoinabox platform.

Based in Geelong, the company has more than 3,000 high volume usage business customers signed to mobile phone plans, mobile data plans, land-lines and high-speed internet between Victoria and Queensland. On average the company bills approximately $200,000/month turning over approximately $2.4 million per annum.

The company plans to expand through more acquisitions and advance their capabilities in IP telephony.

“We originally joined the industry because we recognised there was an opportunity to offer better customer service than the large telcos.

These days a service provider requires a clear understanding of IP telephony and technology to succeed, as well as add value through excellent customer care.

The best thing about Inabox is that the back office support is rock solid and that the management team has an on eye on your business’ future and where it needs to go.”

NICE THINGS OUR CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US

We were looking for a business model that provided an ongoing revenue stream, was scalable and not restricted or limited to a specific location. Telcoinabox met all these requirements, however what inspired us to choose Telcoinabox was the passion and commitment that was evident among the team. This holds true today and is a key factor in our continued partnership with Telcoinabox.

Brent O’Shaughnessy , Managing Director - Oracle Telecom

What drives us is the genuine satisfaction we get from solving frustrated customers’ demands. This is an industry where people easily feel frustrated and underserviced. This is the most rewarding part of the business. The residual income is also very appealing, to know what you have built up in one month won’t change the next and you can continually grow from there. We were impressed with Telcoinabox and the way they did business. They provide a good foundation for setting up a business while providing a sense of certainty.

Rich & Steve Boothby , Directors - Switch Telecom

We originally joined the industry because we recognised there was an opportunity to offer better customer service than the large telcos. The nature of the industry has changed considerably since the naughties. What we did back then is chalk and cheese to what we offer today. These days a service provider requires a clear understanding of IP telephony and technology to succeed, as well as add value through excellent customer care. The best thing about Telcoinabox is that the back-office support is rock solid and that the management team has an on eye on your business’ future and where it needs to go.
