Payments by Barclaycard is the latest company to join BTof the new Partnership Network, aimed at helping the UK’s smallest businesses thrive.
The partner network, specifically designed for micro-businesses with five employees or less, intends to provide a multitude of offers to customers across broadband, mobile, connected devices and digital marketing.
- Barclaycard business customers will get up to £100 off the initial cost of their EE business handset
- 2% cashback for BT business customers who use their Barclaycard business card to pay for any BT or EE service.
The new digital platform enables businesses to create, send and measure digital marketing campaigns across social media platforms, using embedded AI technology to achieve the best results for their business. BT launched the platform in June in collaboration with FSB – the UK’s largest organization dedicated to championing the needs of small businesses.
Colin O’Flaherty, Head of SMBs at Barclaycard Payments, said: “As they continue to prepare for an increasingly challenging business environment, we want to give the country’s smallest businesses the boost they may need to help develop. That’s why we’re delighted to partner with BT, who share our common mission of supporting the UK’s small business community, the engine of our economy.
Whereas Chris Sims, BT’s Managing Director for SoHo (Small Office/Home Office unit) said: “We are delighted to welcome Barclaycard as the latest partner in our network of partnerships, as they support us in our mission to offer smaller UK businesses the perks and benefits they need to grow.
“We want technology, skills and expertise to be as accessible to small businesses as possible, and our partnerships with Barclaycard and FSB will provide our customers with exclusive offers and benefits on broadband, mobile, marketing digital and connected devices in the coming year.”
The launch of the new partner network is part of BT’s recently announced Corporate Customer Charter, comprising a series of new BT initiatives aimed at driving the growth of UK businesses and the public sector and includes a commitment to offer exceptional customer experiences.
