mindWireless added rental of low cost temporary wireless phones for international travel to its wireless telecommunications expense management (TEM) clients through an alliance with Cellhire, a global provider of wireless voice and data solutions. With this alliance, mindWireless becomes the first and only TEM provider to offer this service.
Cellhire’s extensive portfolio of wireless rental solutions includes international cell phones, Blackberry devices, 3G data cards, and a host of satellite options. Strategic partnerships with global networks such as O2, Vodafone, and T-Mobile allow Cellhire to provide their customers with the best solutions on the highest quality networks in over 180 countries worldwide.
“Our relationship with Cellhire extends our ability to offer significant wireless expenses savings to our clients,” said Kevin Whitehurst, managing director for mindWireless. “Most already operate internationally and the roaming expense can be prohibitively expensive. Through Cellhire our clients will pay a low rental fee and local calling rates, saving up to 50 percent over the cost of using their own cell phone.”
“We approached mindWireless because of their leadership position as a wireless-only TEM provider,” said Greg Kraynak, Vice President of Business Development for Cellhire USA. “mindWireless is a perfect fit for Cellhire’s low cost international cell phone rental solutions. It is now possible for mindWireless clients to take advantage of sophisticated voice and data technology and to stay connected whenever and wherever they travel.”
mindWireless clients can request a Cellhire rental phone through their mindWireless Procurement portal. Their selected device will be delivered, ready to use, and set with a local number for the country they will be visiting.
