24 hours of free calls
Lausanne (ots) - Three years ago, on 29th June 1999, Orange
Communications SA entered the Swiss market as the third mobile
communication provider. Since then Orange has convinced almost a
million customers to choose its services and products and has
established itself as a quality mobile provider with a market share
of 18%. Reason enough to be celebrating this coming Saturday, such as
with advertising campaigns in which local and regional sales teams
will be supported by Orange employees from all fields. Or with free
gifts for existing and new customers.
Nobody is better placed to embody a company and its vision and to
convey what it stands for than its employees. That's why this
Saturday on the 29th June about 400 Orange employees have volunteered
to support the local and regional sales teams on the ground in the
advertising campaigns that will be taking place throughout the whole
country. Through this initiative employees will be experiencing the
mobile provider's philosophy, which involves making people the centre
of attention, by getting to know their customers up close.
Gifts for existing customers...
Orange rewards loyal customers. On the 29th June 2002 for 24
hours, all customers who make calls with an Orange price plan will be
able to phone other Orange customers free of charge with the Orange
network all day long. This offer does not apply to SMS and other
services or to customers with an Orange PrePay price plan.
...and for new Orange customers
Anyone who chooses an Orange Personal or an Orange Advanced price
plan from 29th June - 6th July 2002 - thus gaining access to
excellent network quality, transparent tariffs and excellent service
- will get 3 hours free standard calls.
Three successful years
Orange has every reason to be celebrating. Only three years after
entering the market, Orange has, with almost a million customers and
a market share of 18%, established itself as a quality mobile
provider in Switzerland. In these three years Orange has created
1,600 new jobs and is currently training no less than 24 apprentices
in the fields of IT, media and sales. In 2001 Orange increased its
turnover by 19% to 887 million francs and after only 30 months in
business achieved earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and
amortisation (EBITDA) of 10.5 million Swiss francs.
