Orange launches new corporate talk plan


Operator claims to be the first in the UK to include office landline to mobile and mobile to mobile calls in one plan

Orange has launched the Corporate Talk Plan for large business customers. Orange said it is the first UK operator to include office landline to mobile, as well as mobile to mobile calls, in a bundle.

The network said that with companies operating both landline and mobile phones as part of the communications set-up, thus making large numbers of calls from office landlines to company mobiles, the plan would help customers gain tighter control across all phone expenses.

There are a range of plans on offer, from 2,500 minutes to cover between 50 and 100 employees to 375,000 minutes to cover between 500 and 1,500 employees. Orange said businesses won’t be charged premium prices if they use up their quota of calls, and if customers find their actual usage doesn’t fit the Corporate Talk Plan they have selected, the size of the bundle can be scaled up or down.

Customers will also benefit from free calls from users within the talk share plan to landline numbers and unlimited calls between sharers, unlimited calls to national landline numbers starting with 01/02/03, reduced rate calls from office landlines to customers or suppliers on non-Orange mobiles and 24-hour faulty handset replacement service.

Orange UK head of corporate propositions Michael Lawrence said: “Considering that so many organisations are still making a lot of phone calls between office landlines and mobiles, we have identified this as a real opportunity for our customers to make the most of their existing communications set-up. With lower out of bundle charges they don’t need to worry about the bills, and can lower their operating costs with a plan that suits their needs.”
