Ooredoo has launched a global first with its Email Everywhere – Global (EEG) package, a subscription based data roaming add-on for business mobile customers. The package allows customers to send and receive office emails and WhatsApp messages when they are roaming anywhere in the world, on networks where the carrier has a roaming agreement. With EEG, Ooredoo has created a product for business travellers, which allows them to get their email before they get their luggage. The package is available as an add-on and free of charge if customers’ have a local data bundle of 10GB or above.
“In today’s global arena, access to business communications at all times is nothing short of a necessity and this is especially the case when you are travelling overseas. Nobody looks forward to the hassle of searching for Wi-Fi hotspots, buying endless coffees in order to get Wi-Fi passwords or receiving huge bills after you have switched on mobile data while roaming. Smart businesses today want to be able to touchdown and start work. By restricting other data services to avoid unnecessary, unpredictable and unanticipated charges, EEG gives our customers the confidence to stay in touch, with the assurance that they will know their costs in advance. The EEG plan has a monthly subscription fee, but it is available free of charge when customers are signed up for local data bundles of 10GB or more” said Said Al Shanfari, Director of Business Marketing at Ooredoo.
“We have designed it so that Ooredoo Business customers who are on our higher data plans will be rewarded with the freedom and flexibility of being able to stay connected to their business at no extra charge. Add EEG to your mobile line and you will have the confidence to connect to your customers, colleagues and suppliers to do business easily and efficiently from anywhere in the world” added Al Shanfari.
The monthly EEG bundle quota supports about 2,500 average sized emails, or the equivalent data using WhatsApp, or any combination of the two, which equates to 250MB of roaming data.
