Mobile device management, telecom expense management and SIP trunking among the solutions deployed

Orange Business Services has won a six year multi-million euro contract with Amcor to improve employee communications across 43 countries.

The plastic packaging firm is deploying Orange services including telecom expense management (TEM), mobile device management (MDM), mobile connectivity, business together as a service (B2GaaS) and business talk SIP trunking, to increase business flexibility and reduce costs.

Mobile allianceThe contract centralises mobility management, leverages network services to reduce fixed voice costs and enforces global security standards for the mobile fleet, said Amcor.

The company can now make intra-company calls at no cost globally using its existing wide area network, and place international and national calls at a reduced rate in most countries. It is also able to streamline voice services in 19 countries by using Orange Business Talk SIP Trunking.

Mobile device management allows Amcor to deliver new services securely to its end users while staying on top of costs with telecom expense management.

Joel Ranchin, VP corporate IT and global business services at Amcor, said: “In addition to having an unmatched global presence in both mobile and fixed connectivity, Orange tells a real end-to-end story around IT and digital transformation. Amcor continually reviews its IT solutions to ensure we are keeping up with the latest solutions.”

Anne-Sophie Lotgering, senior vice president, Europe, Russia and CIS at Orange Business Services, said: “Our objective is to be the trusted partner in our customers’ digital transformation. This fixed-mobile convergence contract will help Amcor improve collaboration throughout the organisation and gain better control over all communications.

It is an important step in meeting Amcor’s ultimate goal of enabling faster innovation, allowing more creativity and enhanced growth.”
