The devices come with password protection and remote wiping capabilities to ensure that all company information is secure in the event of a device being lost or stolen.
Andrew Ryder, telecoms specialist at MoneySupermarket said: ‘We saw ten different resellers and operators about this contract and what really made Orange stand out was its customer service. Orange has made it quick and easy for us to add new employees on to the network and for every new connection we take on, we get a free BlackBerry device.
Orange has also made it really simple for us to try new products that might benefit our business – we’ve recently started a trial of the new BlackBerry PlayBook to see how tablets might help our remote workers.'
Orange SME marketing director Martin Lyne (pictured) said; ‘We’re delighted to be working with MoneySupermarket and helping its employees benefit from being able to work whenever and wherever they need. To help MoneySupermarket even further, we also offer users Orange Perk, which gives them 25% off their personal contracts with us.’
