Vodafone launches self-optimising mobile plan for businesses
Written by: Sam Fenwick | Published:

Vodafone has today (6 December) launched Business Optimiser, which it claims is the UK’s first self-optimising mobile payment plan and is available to organisations with more than 250 employees.

It has been developed because businesses’ requirements vary from month to month and the amount of data their employees require also fluctuates. When an organisation opts for the Business Optimiser plan, everyone within 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.

Vodafone claims that this will means that businesses will never exceed their data allowance or incur out-of-plan charges; and will never pay for more data than they need. It also states that it will allow businesses to easily set limits on their employees’ data use, enabling them to manage costs effectively. Both the business owner and the employee can receive regular usage updates to keep track of spending.

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 that customers can use their data, call and text allowance in Europe Zones 1 and 2 at no extra charge. For global businesses, allowances can be used in Vodafone World Zone for £5 (exc. VAT) a day.

Anne Sheehan, enterprise director, Vodafone UK said: “I believe 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.”
