BT has unveiled two new services for businesses that leverage EE’s mobile network and the cloud portfolio of its Global Services arm.

One Mobile and One Cloud mobile are primarily designed to reduce the number of contracts and suppliers enterprises use for a range of communications services.

First, BT One Mobile provides organisations with a single, fixed price tariff for global data roaming that is shared between travelling employees.

The service, delivered via EE SIMs, offers 4G in 61 countries and 3G in 159 countries.

BT said it will work with businesses to analyse their mobile data usage and help choose an initial data bundle and price to be shared across international users on a monthly basis.

Each employee covered by the service receives monthly end usage level alerts at pre-defined limits to help manage costs.

If usage exceeds the allowance of global data in any given month of the minimum two-year contract, however, the plan automatically upgrades to the next band, which provides the organisation with a further 2GB of data for an additional charge.

The service is available to any business that has a UK entity with whom EE can contract and bill.

Andrew Small, VP for Unified Communications, Mobile and Contact Centre Portfolio at BT, said: “One Mobile anywhere replaces the chaos of unpredictable data roaming contracts with one simple, fixed-price tariff.

“[It] offers value, convenience and control and gives companies the connectivity to empower their travellers with the latest digital services such as Cisco Jabber, Skype for Business and BT MeetMe with Dolby Voice.”

In its second announcement, BT said its One Cloud mobile offers workers outside of the workplace access to the same services as those in the office via BT’s Cloud of Clouds portfolio.

Telephony, data, apps and conferencing solutions have been merged into one integrated offering that is hosted in the cloud and is invoiced via one contract and bill.

BT said it works over both employees’ existing devices and legacy networks.

Mobile devices using One Cloud mobile are equipped with a dedicated SIM that gives them access to EE’s 4G network, BT Wi-Fi or their organisation’s own corporate network.

The service can be scaled up or down according to demand and is available on a “pay-per-user-per-month” basis.

Small said: “One Cloud mobile 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.”
