MetTel today introduces a cross-carrier pooling service that enables businesses to consolidate multiple cellular plans from AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon so they get one bill, one point of contact, and potentially lower costs.
Cross-carrier pooling combines employee voice, text and data allowances across wireless networks, providing customers savings and more flexible wireless plans. This addresses business customers’ pain points of having to work with multiple carriers and oversubscription of services, explains Max Silber, executive director of mobility at MetTel, who spoke with MobilityTechzone yesterday.
Today, a 1,500-employee company might have 500 employees on each of three major wireless providers. MetTel could help such a company, Silber says, by allowing it to consolidate all those services and instead buy one data plan. That, and the fact that MetTel analyzes business customers’ existing use patterns so it can customize a service to best meet their needs, can result in cost savings of 15 to 30 percent for those customers, he says.
While some competing offers promise telecommunications expense management and optimization, Silber says, MetTel actually acts as the provider of services. As a result, he says, MetTel offers a trackable service vs. just billing software, and provides business customers procurement and support as part of the deal.
“We realize that the business world changes fast and organizations need a mobile solutions partner that can move even faster,” says Marshall Aronow, CEO at MetTel. “MetTel Mobile is our latest offering to better meet the needs of our customers and fill an industry void. The new solution is easily configured and significantly cuts down the time and costs associated with mobile management and device support. This makes it possible for our customers to focus on what matters most – the success and growth of their business.”
