GK Telecom are the logistics partner for the project. This includes providing support for the technical build and maintenance of the online order process, the packaging and preparation of each dispatch, and most importantly, the delivery of 250,000 SIMs to the schools who order them.
GK Telecom assembled a dedicated project team who have worked day and night to ensure the end-to-end process for schools is simple, convenient and efficient. With distribution across the
UK, GK Telecom has arranged coverage across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to get the SIMs to schools urgently and limit the time schoolchildren spend without connectivity.
GK Telecom is an established partner of Vodafone in the Pay As You Go market. Gummy Dulku, Director, GK Telecom said: “GK Telecom is thrilled to extend our relationship with Vodafone and we are privileged to be assisting on an initiative with such a meaningful and worthwhile goal. These are difficult times for everyone and it is more important now than ever before for us to work together to help those in real need.”
Navaratnam Ravi, Operations Director, GK Telecom, added: “The project team are delighted to be working on such an important project with Vodafone. We have spent many long days and nights preparing for this project and it’s a fantastic feeling to start delivering these SIMs to the pupils who need connectivity most.”
