FreeMove Alliance and Millicom boost LatAm enterprise reach
Millicom has teamed up with the FreeMove Alliance – a global group comprising Deutsche Telekom, Orange, Telia and Telecom Italia – to deliver connectivity solutions to multinationals across the Americas and beyond.
Millicom, which delivers fixed, mobile and digital services to enterprises through its Tigo Business brand, has a growing customer base of multinationals in the region. Through this collaboration those customers will now have access to the alliance's tier one operators in the US, Brazil and Europe, as well as its wider global network.
In return it takes the alliance into Millicom's eight national mobile markets: Bolivia, Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama and Paraguay, bolstering its existing reach, which currently addresses more than one hundred markets worldwide.
GM of the FreeMove Alliance, Lazaro Fernandez, said: "The strategic focus of FreeMove Alliance is to promote the power of global mobility as we enable collaboration between multinational companies and national operators. Therefore, we are very excited to welcome Millicom to our community.
"With Millicom, our partners and customers gain eight strong, emerging markets in Central and South America in one go. The partnership allows us also to further optimise the investment MNCs have made to deliver top notch mobile connectivity across borders."
Millicom's multinational customers can also benefit from the FreeMove Alliance's centralised enterprise mobility offerings which include contracting, reporting, ordering and incident management, as well as global business support.
"We are delighted to join FreeMove Alliance," said Augusto Dumit, MNCs and wholesale director, Latin America at Millicom.
"Customer centricity lies at the heart of everything we do, so the decision was an easy one as FreeMove Alliance's services will offer our Tigo Business MNC clients a number of tangible benefits. The new partnership will also extend Millicom's seamless MNC solutions to the US and globally, allowing us to strengthen our position in Latin America's competitive mobile managed services market."
