The initiative generated a large interest from employees who were given a choice to participate. The promotion was extended by a day to accommodate employees on the night shift and was enthusiastically received overall.
Of course with any promotion involving a 3rd party there are always some disgruntled recipients, who either know better or are dissatisfied with the offer.
Moreover, the general positive opinion offered by employees summarised by Mohammad Imran, Senior Technology Engineer IT Infrastructure & Network was, “It was an added convenience for the vendor to come to our offices saving us a lot of time queuing up at an Ooredoo outlet. I am very pleased with the exclusive Qatalum discount rates because of the savings I can get from extensive phone usage, especially for work.”
Although strictly a mobile based special offer, several employees were dismayed that other services such as Ooredoo TV subscriptions were not included in the promotion.
The report issued by Ooredoo stated the following uptake by employees:
New activities - 99
Upgrades - 57
30% discount – 87
Overall the Communications led initiative met the requirements of 243 employees allowing for a sizeable savings to all those that will proactively participate over the duration of the promotional period of one year.
Qatalum staff can still avail of this offer at Ooredoo stores for up to 4 members. Please present your Qatar and Qatalum ID. Those who have already taken the offer will obviously not be eligible.
