Moneysupermarket shops around for best mobile deal

28th September 2011 Print

Orange announces it has been selected as the mobile provider for price comparison site, MoneySupermarket. By working with Orange, MoneySupermarket estimates it will save nearly a third (32 per cent) on its monthly mobile bill. 

Orange is providing the price comparison site with 120 mobile devices, including the Blackberry Bold and Blackberry Torch 9800, on the Business Sense 7000 tariff. The handsets are used by employees, such as directors and off-site sales teams, who need to keep in contact with their colleagues or customers when away from the office.

In addition, Orange is providing 20 Barcelona devices, which are used as shared phones for teams who provide the company’s out of hours support, such as its IT teams. Orange is also providing MoneySupermarket with 20 3G data cards which allow users to log onto their emails or access the internet from a laptop while on the move.

With password protection and remote wiping capabilities on the devices, MoneySupermarket’s IT team will be able to ensure that all company information is kept safe, even if a device is lost or stolen.

Andrew Ryder, Telecoms Specialist at MoneySupermarket said, “We saw ten different resellers and operators about this contract and what really made Orange stand out was its customer service. Orange has made it quick and easy for us to add new employees on to the network and for every new connection we take on; we get a free BlackBerry device. Orange has also made it really simple for us to try new products which might benefit our business – we’ve recently started a trial of the new BlackBerry Playbook, to see how tablets might help our remote workers.”

Martin Lyne, SME Marketing Director at Orange, said, “We’re delighted to be working with MoneySupermarket and helping its employees benefit from being able to work whenever and wherever they need. To help MoneySupermarket even further, we also offer users Orange Perk which gives them 25 percent off their personal contracts with us.”
