CLOUD TELECOMS FIRM GOLDFISH HAS BEEFED UP ITS SALES TEAM WITH SENIOR SALES PROFESSIONAL JONATHAN BUNCE
The Greystones based company’s new ‘Head of Sales and Business Development’ aims to target its cloud services to large blue-chip companies
19th June, 2017; Greystones, Wicklow, Ireland: Cloud telecoms company Goldfish.ie has today announced its hiring of experienced technology sales professional, Jonathan Bunce, to fill the new role of ‘Head of Sales and Business Development’. Set up in 2010, the firm is undergoing rapid growth. The number of Irish companies signing up for its VoIP telecoms services is continuing to increase. It also now provides Software as a Service (SaaS), with demand beginning to take off for Quvu, its cloud-based contact centre management software.
Jonathan has 22 years’ experience in front line sales roles for major tech companies in Ireland and the UK. He moved to Ireland in 2006 to join the management team at eircom PhoneWatch. In over 8 years at eircom he had considerable success, leading multiple call centres and increasing customers by 75%. Before moving to Goldfish he spent time in the e-learning sector driving expansion into the global telecoms market and East Asia.
Gordon O’Neill, Goldfish’s CEO, said “Over the past 7 years we have established ourselves as a major provider of Cloud Telecoms VoIP services. While this remains the core of our business, the area where we are seeing the largest growth in demand, is for ‘Quvu’, our cloud-based contact centre management software. The tech sector changes rapidly, so you have to think ahead and listen to your customers. What we are hearing is that companies want the ability to license software and services through the Cloud, so we believe this supply model will be a key area of future growth for us. We needed to bring in an experienced tech-sales professional to help us achieve this and Jonathan Bunce fitted the bill perfectly.”
Specialist recruitment agency Red Tree Recruitment was appointed to handle the hiring process.

It also provides a host of other services, such as automatic recording of all your incoming and outgoing calls; an IVR “press 1 for sales, 2 for support etc” and with no on-site equipment you have no maintenance costs. What’s not to love?

We’ve all been there, when the customer disagrees with you over what they said was requested. You remember the conversation clearly and have delivered what they asked for. But they are adamant that they agreed something different with you and you can’t convince them otherwise. You inevitably give ground because you don’t want to lose them as a customer, but it ends up costing you more money. Well, it no longer has to be this way.
Great thing about moving to a modern cloud telecoms system is that, as well as providing low cost telephone calls, you also get access to host of other services that you can’t get with a traditional telephone system. This includes Call Recording.
Goldfish’s Call Recording service records all your incoming and outgoing phone calls and keeps them in your account, so you can access them from anywhere in the world. So it doesn’t matter if you are on safari in Zambia, or beach in Barbados, if you get a call from an irate customer who is wondering why what you delivered is different to what they were expecting. All you have to do is log into your Control Panel and listen to the call to clarify what was agreed. You can even download the MP3 and send it to them for confirmation.
These days it is a legal requirement to record all telephone calls in many industries, such as insurance and financial services, so Call Recording is a must have. It is also perfect for sectors where even a little misunderstanding can lead to big problems, such as the legal sector or the media, where recording interviews is a big help. But for any business dealing with clients and customers on a day-to-day basis Call Recording is a godsend. It is better to be safe than sorry.
Goldfish call save recordings of all your calls for 1 year (for €2.49 + vat), or 6 years (for €7.49 + vat) per user. Better still, the first month is free if you use the promo-code: callrec16 when you sign up.
If you are already a Goldfish.ie customer just login to your Control Panel and add Call Recording there. If you are a new customer just sign up here: Goldfish.ie
