Malaysian 3G telco U Mobile said it is the first in the market to offer prepaid plans for enterprises and businesses, which are intended to offer affordability and convenience to business leaders.
Speaking on 19 November 2012, U Mobile chief executive officer Jaffa Sany Ariffin said businesses, corporations and enterprises would have more control over their monthly mobile expenses with U Mobile's new Enterprise prepaid plan.
Jaffa said subscribers to this plan are only required to sign up for one postpaid account, which comes with multiple prepaid lines. "This enables business owners to allocate airtime credit to individual employees as and when it is required, to monitor credit allowances and ultimately, to take control over their company's mobile expenses and avoiding end-of-month bill shock."
"Subscribers also enjoy the benefits of U Mobile's popular prepaid plans, which include free calls, free SMS, local call charges when in Singapore, lower IDD rates and an extended validity period. These value-added offerings will deliver greater savings on monthly expenses," he said.
"We are proud to be the first to offer a prepaid plan for the enterprise market, attesting to our claim of being an innovative player in the industry," said Jaffa. "Being a customer-centric telco, we understand the hassle enterprises and businesses experience in managing their company's mobile expenses and related procedures. U Mobile's new prepaid plan for the enterprise market helps address these concerns and provides a convenient solution to manage their spending and the related processes."
"Also, with our recent activation of 3G Radio Access Network (RAN) sharing with Maxis, Enterprise subscribers will be able to stay connected with their colleagues, clients, friends and family from almost everywhere in Peninsular Malaysia," he said.
U Mobile is offering three different enterprise plans: small and medium businesses with less than 300 employees can opt for the RM15,000 (US$4,892) monthly plan and have 10 percent monthly rebate on the principal account. Enterprises with an employee scale of 301 to 500 people can opt for the RM30,000 (US$9,783) monthly plan and have a 12 percent rebate monthly. Corporations with more than 500 employees can opt for RM50,000 (US$16,305) monthly plan and have a 12 percent rebate every month.
Jaffa said: "To launch of this new plan, U Mobile is offering 15 percent rebate for the first three months to subscribers who opt for the RM30,000 and RM50,000 [US$9,783 to US$16,305] monthly plan. The offer starts from November 2012 and will end in January 2013."
