Cingular and Orange Join Forces in Business Services
Posted on 30-Nov-2005 09:51. | Tags Filed under: News.

Cingular Wireless and Orange will provide consolidated mobile services to multinational companies in the U.S. and Europe under Cingular's WorldView program.

Cingular and Orange customers with operations in the U.S., Great Britain, France, Netherlands, Belgium and Switzerland now can access and manage their combined Cingular and Orange wireless usage and expenditures through a secure online portal, called WorldView Wireless Information Navigator, which is available exclusively to WorldView customers.

In addition to this combined domestic/international management capability, Cingular customers who are signed up under Cingular's flagship business offer, Cingular Corporate Digital Advantage (CCDA), can now also apply their wireless usage with Orange to their minimum usage commitment under CCDA to qualify for volume discounts with the WorldView Global Discount Program.

Cingular and Orange account representatives also will collaborate to provide a consolidated response to customers' trans-Atlantic purchase requests and major bids. The companies believe this single point of contact approach will allow customers to cut down on the costs and time spent working with multiple suppliers while making it easier for them to implement global procurement and technology policies.

"Multinational companies tell us that procurement and leveraging economies of scale are two of their biggest headaches," says Philippe Bernard, Executive Vice President, Orange Business Solutions. "Our reciprocal arrangement with Cingular via the Worldview program eases that pain. By providing our multinational customers with the right services, tools and support we can help our customers do business better, and more efficiently. Furthermore, we believe this arrangement further strengthens our competitive position and underlines our commitment to deliver to businesses."

Cingular WorldView is a coordinated international wireless program. It helps multinational companies manage global wireless purchasing, coordinate service in multiple countries, take advantage of Cingular's relationships with carriers abroad, and coordinate domestic and international account management.
