HSC sees 41pc Orange rise in Q1


HSC saw its new connections and upgrades on Orange increase by 41 per cent in the first quarter of 2010.

The distributor said it is committed to working closely with Orange and T-Mobile in advance of the two companies’ combined channel model expected later this year and said it was providing “unparalleled support” to all its Orange and T-Mobile dealers, “to ensure that they are in the best position to take advantage of any new opportunities the merged business will provide the UK market”.

HSC sales manager Carlos Pestana said: “HSC has worked closely with its Orange account manager to ensure all HSC stockists are benefiting from the fantastic range of benefits open to them, such as discount approvals, maximising the eight per cent revenue share, marketing activity funding, and utilising HSC’s parent company, Carphone Warehouse, to offer a wide range of generic handsets for everyone connecting with it. In addition, HSC has shown its commitment to our stockists and is paying an additional £40 HSC bonus on all new business connections on Orange.

“We have seen a significant increase to our Orange business connections, especially in the Midlands. This is partly due to a restructure of our internal account managers, and the introduction of Tracy Miles, a senior account manager into the region. Tracy has over seven years of experience working with HSC, and has proven to be a real asset to the area and the company.”
