Vodafone introduces ‘self-optimising’ mobile payment plan for businesses

Vodafone has launched a self-optimising mobile plan so that bosses won't exceed their data allowance or incur out-of-plan charges.

Vodafone has launched Business Optimiser, the UK’s first self-optimising mobile payment plan.

Business Optimiser acknowledges that the needs of businesses change month by month and the amount of data employees require goes up and down. It provides a totally transparent mobile plan that ensures businesses won’t pay more than they need to and can keep track of costs throughout the contract term.

The mobile plan is available for organisations of 250+ employees.

How it works

With Business Optimiser, everyone in the business with a mobile contract will start each month on an appropriate price plan and with their data allowance set to zero. As employees use data throughout the month, they will be automatically moved up to the next most cost-effective plan. Businesses will never exceed their data allowance or incur out-of-plan charges, nor will they pay for more data than they need.

Businesses can easily set limits on what employees use, letting them manage their costs effectively. Both the business owner and the employee can receive regular usage updates to keep track of spending.

Anne Sheehan, enterprise director of Vodafone UK, believes that Business Optimiser is a game changer. ‘It provides businesses with the flexibility and control they need, and the peace of mind that they are not spending more than they need to. This means they can focus on what matters most to their business.

Business Optimiser is available for plans covering voice or data or both. If voice is included, unlimited calls and texts to standard landlines and mobiles in the UK and Europe Zones 1 and 2 are included. So too is Business Traveller, which means customers can use their data, call and text allowance in Europe Zones 1 and 2 at no extra charge. And for global businesses, allowances can be used in Vodafone World Zone for just £5 (excluding VAT) a day. This means those travelling for business can stay connected – and productive – wherever they roam.

Business Optimiser is available now through Vodafone account managers. Interested businesses (250+ employees) can call 0808 0998877 for free to find out more.
