Yorkshire-based Abzorb's new MVNO partnership with Transatel – BT Wholesale's MVNO partner – is reflective of its escalating ambition in the mobile space as it seeks to provide close to real-time network and customer monitoring to reseller partners.
Operating under the abZ moniker the deal means that Abzorb will enable businesses to brand the MVNO service as their own while using EE's UK mobile network infrastructure.
Matt Dykes, Abzorb COO, said: "abZ offers a mobile service that provides companies with total control by giving them flexibility to move between network providers while leaving them in charge of mobile utilisation and network settings.
"Mobile telephone usage and data via CDRs will be in hand for partners through the Abzorb channel partner portal in minutes - as well as other services across all three network operators.
" "This really will keep the channel partner in complete control, eliminating any long-protracted account reconciliation problems, providing near real-time accurate data to their customers such as CDRs, usage information, tariff utilisation and setting caps and bars."
Nick Wootten, MVNO Director at BT Wholesale, said: "The ability to manage customers in near real-time has huge value in the channel."
Dykes joined Abzorb in April this year following a 20 year career in the wholesale telecoms industry at Vodafone and O2.
