“So, this is Christmas

And what have you done?

Another year over

And a new one just begun”

The lyrics to John Lennon’s Happy Christmas (War Is Over) are always so poignant, especially as another Christmas is upon us and a New Year beckons. It is this time of year that we look back and review our year. So without further ado here is our 2016 review.

We are fortunate that we enjoy a wonderful relationship with all of our valued suppliers. It’s been great to feature many of them in our blogs this year.

It has been great to showcase products and innovation from Eaton, Cisco, DrayTek, Powerline, Netgear, APC, TP-Link.

Only this month it was great to have Ruckus as the star of our December blogs.

We also linked with Eaton, Cisco, Netgear, APC, DrayTek, and TP-Link to offer up prizes in our competitions. You have entered in your droves, which brings a great source of pleasure for both us and our great partners. To all of the winners, we sincerely hope that you are enjoying prizes!

Our social communities on Facebook and Twitter have seen a huge increase of followers. We dipped our toes in the social world a few years ago and without wishing to get too sentimental we still find it hard to believe that we have a combined audience of nearly 26,000. Many brands on via their social platforms have little or no engagement, as overjoyed as we are with our huge following it is the great engagement we enjoy with you guys that make it such a delight. Keep on keeping on!!

We are once again proud to support Great Ormond Street with charity donations. We are in awe of the great work and support this wonderful hospital offer poorly children and their families.

Our Data Point scheme enjoyed a great year. A record number of you enjoyed earning while spending with us. We are so proud of our Comms Express Data Points scheme. Set up to offer our valued clients something back it is great to see you build up points and reward yourself with some great free gifts. We look forward to more Data Points being used in 2017!

So how has your 2016 been? We would love to hear from you. Come on over to our Facebook wall and let us know!

With today’s penchant for healthier lifestyles, we know that we should not advocate over indulging but it is Christmas. So our parting message is crack on and eat and drink and be merry! From everybody here at Comms Express, we wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year!
