customers. The service promises small businesses greater control over
their monthly mobile phone bills and tighter management of their mobile
The Ting web page for businesses (ting.com/business) previews some new tools in the control panel, such as user-level
alerts, which will email or text an account administrator or even
disable a device when a particular user hits specified usage levels. It
offers a downloadable spreadsheet to help businesses calculate their
potential savings. It also outlines aspects of the Ting pricing plan
that are most crucial to business customers, including:
Unlimited devices per account with pooled usage
Pay-per-use pricing, with no limits or overage penalties
Independent plans for voice, text and data
"Small businesses probably have more to gain than anyone from a mobile
plan that makes sense," explained Tucows CEO Elliot Noss. "These people
are forced to juggle multiple accounts, they are penalized for their
heavy usage and, too often, they lack clear visibility into their usage
and their bill."
"Ting is dedicated to bringing clarity and control to mobile phone
service," continued Noss. "For small businesses, that means time and
money that can be spent on something else."
