Nimans has produced a handy guide that provides an honest assessment of the pros and cons of wholesale mobile opportunities.
The 20-page booklet, entitled: ‘Is Wholesale Mobile Right For Me?’ takes an objective view of the advantages and responsibilities required – to enable dealers to make an informed overall decision.
“We appreciate it is a big commercial decision to either move away from traditional commission based mobile commercials or to take on mobile for the first time, said Nimans’ Head of Networks, Mark Curtis-Wood.
As an official Joined Up Communications wholesale channel partner with O2, Nimans offers a range of compelling solutions from connections to hardware, as Mark continued: “Wholesale Mobile offers a host of opportunities for resellers both from a customer retention and cross-sell position and to increase business value. But it’s not for everyone. Our team will help you identify whether Wholesale Mobile is right for your business and guide you through the pros and cons it represents.”
Mark emphasised: “The reality for resellers is that many of the mobile networks have moved into other arenas such as fixed line, broadband and data. Potentially a reseller risks customer erosion and losing margins. Wholesale gives them complete control so they can bill under their own name using their existing billing platform or using Nimans’ bureau services.
“As they own the customer they will take on first line support. Whilst this may sound daunting, the reality is mobile support can be pretty trouble free and simple. They should check that their mobile service provider can provide training, ready made information sheets and second line support.”
