onscreen description

Multisourcing Service Integration for Mobility, an integrated services solution for enterprise mobility by Orange Business Services, has been shortlisted by the World Communication Awards 2020.

The solution is competing in the new “Beyond Connectivity” award category, which celebrates the operator/CSP/MVNO with the most compelling customer offering beyond connectivity, helping to improve network traffic and customer retention, and overall proving a compelling business extension or partnership.

While most multinational corporations still procure, manage and support enterprise mobility using a decentralized model (subsidiary-by-subsidiary, country-by-country), Orange Business Services has identified significant advantages for enterprise customers when global mobility is centrally managed, just like other key IT services. Multisourcing Service Integration for Mobility leverages the vast benefits of IT service integration, for which Orange Business Services is a recognized leader and trusted partner to some of the world's largest multinational corporations, and applies them to enterprise mobility. As a comprehensive mobile IT integration services suite, MSI for Mobility enables the centralization of the entire mobile estate to reduce costs, improve end-user experience and open doors for business innovation.

Concretely, MSI for Mobility allows enterprise customers to achieve seamless governance, unification, standardization and end-to-end management of their global enterprise mobility services delivered by Orange and by third parties. By applying an MSI framework to enterprise mobility, Orange Business Services helps customers overcome the costs and inefficiencies that arise from contractual misalignment among service providers and lack of clarity in SLAs, in addition to multiple and redundant service management tools.

Valérie Cussac, Executive Vice President of Smart Mobility Services at Orange Business Services, commented, “After the endorsement by several top-tier industry analysts of our strategy to apply the Orange Business Services MSI approach to managed mobility services for the enterprise sector, we are very honored to receive this recognition by WCA jury members, our esteemed industry peers. Today, our network assets continue to be a core strength, but MSI for Mobility is a clear differentiator for Orange Business Services, in addition to representing a new services paradigm and opportunity for our customers to consolidate and transform their enterprise mobility.”
Patrick de Trez, Head of International Mobility Services, added, “Our unique positioning as an operator-integrator provides us with key insights and capabilities that are essential to understanding and addressing our customers’ need to manage enterprise mobility on a global scale. Indeed, we are extremely pleased to advance to the next round of this competition with the other distinguished finalists.”

Orange Business Services was additionally shortlisted in the WCA’s Cloud Native Award category (Next Gen Hub) and for Best Digital Transformation Programme. Orange has also been shortlisted for the 5G Business Award (Orange 5G: Bringing the future of connectivity to Romania) and for Best Operator in an Emerging Market.

For the past 22 years, the World Communication Awards have recognized innovation and excellence for global telecoms and are broadly considered the most revered mark of achievement in the telecoms industry.

Winners will be announced during the WCA ceremony on October 28, 2020.
