About gnTel

As far as we know, gnTel was the first company in the Netherlands to offer cloud telephony. As part of a small team of enthusiasts, gnTel founder John Ouderling (formerly director of KPN Research) already began working on internet telephony in the late 1990s. The initiative continued at TNO Bedrijven.

In 2004, the decision was taken to establish gnTel, and John became an entrepreneur. From that time onward, things went quickly. We now have thousands of customers and more than 100 resellers, specially trained to advise customers about telephony for businesses.

Who we are

At our most recent partner day, we requested our partners, as it were, to hold a mirror up to us. “What do you find good about us and what could be improved?”, was the question. The great thing was that first, only positive things came to mind; “excellent service” was the first, “solid platform” the second and “reliability” the third.

Of course, we didn’t mind hearing that at all, but luckily some points for improvement were also mentioned, e.g., making our invoices clearer and further widening our range of products and services. We’re now hard at work on that. And with a number of other innovations, as well. More on that soon …
