The White Oak UK partner programme makes it much easier for our customers to purchase from us, it gives us a competitive edge and our customers welcome it. "

Nathan Hanslip, Director, Yo Telecom


Entrepreneur Ryan O’Carroll and fellow director Nathan Hanslip, launched the award-winning business in April 2013, fresh from university. The company has since grown from 2 to 75 employees, with a customer base spanning the entire UK. .

The Problem

At Yo Telecom, their purpose is simple: to help businesses increase their success. Yo is a fresh approach to telecoms, providing not just a phone line, but a full-scale communications solution to their customers.

However, for many small businesses, investment in telephony can't just be an essential decision, but a financially significant one, making payment flexibility vital.

The Solution

Yo Telecom embraced vendor finance as an option from day one, giving them a competitive edge and something that their customers welcomed.

With no capital outlay upfront and the ability to spread the cost of purchase, the White Oak UK Partner Programme made it much easier for their customers to purchase from them using asset finance.

Delivered through our Partner Programme, White Oak UK's Technology Leasing Solution is a highly competitive, flexible and familiar fixed-term finance lease solution that removes bureaucracy and gives Yo Telecom increased sales and customer retention.

The Result

Yo Telecom are growing at a rapid rate and the ability to offer an asset finance option to their clients through the White Oak UK Partner Programme, continues to aid this growth. They were awarded SIEMENS (Unify) Fastest Growing Partner, globally for three consecutive years and in 2020 were in The Sunday Times’ Top 100 Small Organisations to Work For.

As Nathan Hanslip explains, “We’re in the business of bridging the gap between businesses and their customers and currently, we provide services to businesses nationwide, spanning a broad mix of household names and smaller businesses across many industries.”

Over the next three years, our mission is to further expand our company, increasing our customer base threefold whilst helping over 4000 business's increase their success by 2023. We opened a second office in Manchester in early 2020 and are thrilled to be helping even more businesses increase their success nationally.
