FreeMove Service Central Report now also available to multinational corporations in Greece and Bulgaria

 

 

December 6th, 2011 – FreeMove Service Central Report is now the first service of the FreeMove Alliance available to multinational corporation customers in Greece and Bulgaria, after the most recent addition of the mobile operators COSMOTE and GLOBUL to the FreeMove Alliance’s global footprint.  The web-based service allows multinational corporations to have greater transparency and efficiency with regard to mobile communication costs by reporting current costs for national and international voice and data services in a clear, more convenient and structured way on a monthly basis.

 

Customers receive detailed information about the various costs and usage, and they can track their monthly expenditures for mobile communications at home and abroad. Moreover, detailed data permits the analysis of usage based on parameters such as region, business unit, time and even type of connection. Its interactive structure also allows customers to drive their own research and analyses—in this way, companies discover cost-relevant developments in a timely manner and are able to control them more efficiently.

 

While the service has been available through FreeMove in the majority of its European footprint, Russia and Brazil thus far, the Alliance is now strengthening its position in the Southeast European market with this new offer.

 

Fabien Gustafsson, General Manager at FreeMove, says, “After the expansion of our footprint in Southeast Europe, we are happy to offer our customers there the FreeMove Central Report, a service that contributes to the optimal control of company costs due to a better overview of cost and usage across mobile operations.”
