Cell C announced today (12 October 2012) that it would be introducing of a new product range called Cell C Pro, which will include products and services designed for high-end consumers and business users.
SME CUG (closed user group), the first service in the Cell C Pro product range, is targeted at the small business market.
The product will be available from 25 October and will offer small businesses savings of up to 25% on their telecommunications costs.
“With the new product, business owners will be able to include all their employees who are on the Cell C network, including those on pre-paid, in a closed user group, where they will pay 75c per minute for calls between members of the group. Of course it will be pure per second billing from the first second,” said Cell C CEO, Alan Knott-Craig.
Cell C added that there will be no activation fee, or monthly subscription to benefit from this saving on calls.
Alongside the small business offering, Cell C has launched an advanced version of closed user groups for corporate customers called Corporate CUG. This offers free calls for a monthly subscription of R99 per employee on the Cell C network. A fair usage policy will apply.
Businesses will also have access to the Cell C Pro portal where various services including the ability to view their account information and their usage on each of the linked subscribers in their profile will be available.
Businesses can sign-up for these closed user groups at any participating retail outlet or directly from Cell C Business on 084 194 4000.
