Radical smart plan changes at Vodafone

Radical smart plan changes at Vodafone

As more and more customers embrace smartphones, Vodafone has responded by radically changing the way it offers its products and services. From today Vodafone announces sweeping changes to its On-Account plans.

Prominent in the new line-up are dedicated Business smart plans recognising the growing trend for small businesses to use smart phones to run their business more efficiently. Business owners can choose the terms that suit them from one, 12 or 24 months and for the first time will incur no charges when retrieving voicemail messages.

A unique new feature, Local Number on a Mobile, lets customers reach you on a local number without the unexpected expense of a mobile call. All calls between mobiles on a Business Smart account are included, so staff can talk as much as they like. On selected plans all calls to New Zealand landlines are included (without reducing your plan minutes).

"We have designed the plans specifically with the small business in mind so they have everything they need included. One of the things our small business customers have told us is that having a landline number helps with their image in their customers eyes," says Greg Campbell, Vodafone Director of Marketing. "Including this in the plan generates more calls to their business whilst managing costs. "

Vodafone's new plan line-up includes increased calling minutes to any NZ mobile or landline, 2500 texts to any New Zealand mobile and free calls to a designated, frequently called number.

These plans are supported by New Zealand's best range of smartphones, and our business dedicated 888 service team. Customers signing up for 12 month terms will receive a monthly plan discount, and 24 month contracts will receive a generous handset discount.
