• BT launches new mobile collaboration service to UK businesses

        • BT has announced a new mobile service that brings together 4G and fixed networks, to deliver cloud-based collaboration services to organisations in the UK with more than 500 employees.

          The new service, BT One Cloud mobile, is a product of BT’s Cloud of Clouds portfolio strategy for large businesses. Its launch follows an announcement earlier this year that the company is bringing to market a range of new services to help businesses address the acceleration in digital transformation sweeping through their organisations.

          Andrew Small, Vice President of Unified Communications, Mobile and Contact Centre Portfolio at BT said, “our customers are asking us to help them transform their business, to change how they work and to achieve the digital possible. To do this, we continue to develop our portfolio strategy — the Cloud of Clouds — by investing in areas such as mobility and bringing to market the integrated cloud-based solutions our customers need, such as BT One Cloud mobile.”

          According to The BT CIO report 2016: The digital CIO, cloud, data and mobility and collaboration are fuelling the most profound change within large organisations. One Cloud mobile integrates each of these technologies to provide people on the move with instant, secure access to the same collaboration tools as their colleagues have in the office. As a cloud-based service, One Cloud mobile can be scaled up or down according to demand and is available on a ‘pay-per-user-per-month’ basis. It also offers organisations connectivity to BT Wi-fi, enabling people working away from the office to send data over wi-fi rather than 4G.

          One Cloud mobile also introduces a simpler commercial model for businesses buying mobile collaboration services by offering access to applications along with connectivity under a single contract and one bill. It is an end-to-end service suitable for organisations which have already invested in voice and desktop equipment and can work over employees’ existing devices and legacy networks.

          Andrew added, “one Cloud mobile is a great example of our strategy in action. It transforms the traditional approach to communications by converging several separate services into one and hosting it in the cloud. In doing so, it makes collaboration easy and more consistent. And with one contract and one bill, it means that whether an employee picks up a desk phone or their mobile, it’s all in the tariff.”
