Referral

Keep things simple with a Giganet Referral arrangement

Don't fancy handling the contractual arrangements, provisioning, billing and support 24x7, then a Giganet Referral arrangement could be ideal for you.

We reward you for referring a new customer to us, and in return you don't have any commitments to make on billing, provisioning or support. It could be a win-win.

Referral Commercials

  • No commitment.
  • No exclusivity.
  • You sell the service to the customer before handing them over to us to sign them up and get their service live.
  • In the simplest scenario, you then don't have to be involved for anything else.
  • We handle the provisioning, support and billing.
  • Once their service is live and has been connected for at least 30-days, we will issue you with a one-off referral commission which is related to the service and contract term selected.

Partnership

Last but by no means least we can partner with each other

Giganet is always on the lookout for organisations to partner with where complimentary services, similar geography/client base/verticals make it a no-brainer to strike up a 'partnership' arrangement.

Giganet's portfolio naturally compromises connectivity solutions, and our parent company M12 Solutions offers a range of business-telecoms services such as VoIP, phone systems, SIP,  and mobiles. Therefore it makes little sense for telecoms or connectivity businesses to partner with us! - you're better looking at our Wholesale, Resale or Referral plans.

If there are services that we're not providing, but that are complimentary, then we're always open to discussions where we can partner with you and cross-sell services into each other's bases. E.g. IT services, commercial real-estate, office fit out.

The key to this arrangement is trust, quality, impeccable customer service and experience, and reliability.

If you believe there to be an opportunity, please get in touch; we'd love to talk.

Referral Commercials

  • We will only partner with like-minded organisations to us (trust, reliability, quality, integrity, high focus on customer service etc).
  • We will partner with more than one type of company (e.g. two+ IT firms) , but only if their vertical-focus and/or geography-focus doesn't overlap with an existing partner. Otherwise that would not be fair.
  • Mutual NDA required as we'd be sharing client details/requirements/useful information between us.
  • No commitment.
  • No exclusivity.
  • We each own, communicate, bill and support the end-customer for the respective services that we provide.
  • Neither of us benefits financially from the other, other than directly from the end-user for the services contracted.
  • We both appreciate that sometimes, one side of the partnership may receive more leads than the other. The key emphasis is that the partnership approach embodies greater trust and integrity.
