Mobile Telecommunication Company Saudi Arabia (Zain KSA), reveals that it has activated several services and aspects of the strategic partner market agreement that the company has recently signed with Vodafone.
This agreement is set to enhance Zain KSA’s communication solutions portfolio and benefit its customers across all sectors, especially in the business sector.
This comes after Zain KSA, operator of the leading real LTE/ 4G network in Saudi Arabia, and Vodafone, the world’s largest mobile telecommunications operator by revenue held several meetings and workshops that addressed the exchange of expertise across the various aspects set out in the partnership.
According to this agreement, Zain KSA’s business sector joins Vodafone Global Enterprise (VGE), a leading provider of business services serving over 1,400 multinational companies around the world.
While serving as a single point of contact, VGE offers its customers communication solutions, communications expenditure tracking and procurement services. This helps save over 15 per cent of the global business sector’s expenses, making Vodafone their preferred operator. The move will enhance both Zain KSA and Vodafone’s ability to meet growing demand among multinational businesses based in the Saudi market, whose accounts are managed by Vodafone in international markets.
Fraser Curley, Chief Executive Officer of Zain KSA: “From the world’s most innovative operator with a presence in every technologically advanced market serving over 400 million customers. We see this partnership help us further develop the Saudi telecommunications industry and strengthen the Kingdom’s leadership role, as the largest and most sophisticated telecommunications hub in the Gulf region. This is an exciting period in Zain’s evolution and I strongly believe that - together with Vodafone - Zain will gain significant share in key market segments.”
Curley added: “The agreement will additionally enhance the business services portfolio offered to Zain customers and facilitate the exchange of expertise between the two parties, which is set to enrich our overall expertise in the Saudi market.”
Colin MacDougall, Vodafone Regional Director for Americas, Middle East and Africa said: “Our agreement with Zain KSA provides an opportunity for Vodafone to build our presence and work with a leading operator in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the largest telecommunications market in the Arabian Gulf and one of the fastest growing in the region. We will actively support Zain KSA wherever possible.”
