Cellhire launches Cellhire On Demand to give businesses control over employees’ data roaming costs around the globe – while providing greater data allowances at lower cost

Experience at major events – FIFA World Cups, Cannes Film Festivals, UEFA Euro Finals and the London Olympics – laid the groundwork for the new service 

August 26th, 2016. York, UK. Cellhire – recently busy at the Rio Olympics with providing data and voice products and services to major media and other corporations – has launched Cellhire On Demand, which enables businesses to regain control over employees’ data roaming costs in 98+ countries worldwide.

Cellhire On Demand – www.cellhire.co.uk/ondemand – also provides greater data allowances at lower cost. Features include over-the-air SIM activation and deactivation, the ability to re-assign SIM cards to specific users at any time and a barring function to manage theft and loss.

The service operates via a secure online portal and a central pool of SIM cards and MiFi devices [small portable wireless routers] supplied by Cellhire, which businesses keep on site to ensure instant availability and abolish the need for multiple shipping charges.

Says Matt Bennett, Cellhire UK Managing Director, “Cellhire On Demand cuts costs, saves time and ends complexity. Further savings are achieved by the improved data allowances we offer at lower prices.

“It enables businesses to gain complete control over their mobile phone usage, including control over every connection and see an overview of all active data bundles at any time.”

Data sharing via MiFi  

Bennett continues, “Compared to the current process of businesses phoning their network provider to enable a costly roaming data bolt-on, Cellhire On Demand is a real step forward. Another plus is that data can be shared securely between multiple phones, laptops and tablets by using a MiFi.”

He adds, “Activating and deactivating data bundles leads to a reduction in data roaming costs and is easy to manage.  User organisations receive early high usage warnings with daily alerts and can reduce overage bills with the ability to automatically deactivate or renew data bundles once the bundle limit has been reached.”

Significant player

Cellhire is a significant player in the UK and globally in wireless communications, winning contracts to provide major media and other corporations with data and voice products and services at leading events including FIFA World Cups, Cannes Film Festivals, UEFA Euro Finals and the London Olympics.

“Our experience at these events, combined with the services we offer from our offices in the UK, USA, France, Germany, Brazil, Russia and Japan, laid the groundwork for Cellhire On Demand,” says Bennett.
