Martin Lyne, director of SME business at Orange UK, said, "No one needs to be told of the detrimental effects the recession is having on business in the UK at present. We need to ensure we provide flexibility in our plans to help support SMEs' changing communications needs.
"As the only operator to provide such an alternative we feel confident that Flexible Workforce will assist SME’s to better weather these economic conditions."
Available to existing business customers who already have two or more contract subscribers, Flexible Workforce has been designed to address the following concerns of businesses:
Provide flexibility around fluctuations in workforce numbers/locations for seasonal/project based businesses
Tackle unpredictable future requirements - so no monthly line-rental contract is required and therefore minimal commitment needed. This will give customers greater control over their costs which will be in direct relationship to usage patterns
Enable shared resources for staff who will only have sporadic non-essential needs for use of a mobile phone for business purposes
Customers will be able to manage their cash flow better as payment is made in arrears of use. This means costs do not have to be absorbed ahead of any incoming revenue
The service is always available. Therefore if a SME makes the decision to use Flexible Workforce for last minute freelance help, for instance, deployment is rapid
Billing is simple, with Flexible Workforce subscribers receiving a monthly statement for managing their business costs efficiently
