PARIS & GENEVA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Orange Business Services has entered into a contract with Amcor, a global leader in flexible and rigid plastics packaging with operational headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland, to introduce a wide range of fixed and mobile solutions. Converging its communications will allow Amcor to improve global interaction and collaboration for employees in 43 countries across five continents.
The new six-year, multi-million euro contract introduces new services to reduce complexity and save costs, including Telecom Expense Management (TEM), Mobile Device Management (MDM), mobile connectivity, Business Together as a Service (B2GaaS) and Business Talk SIP Trunking.
