Telenor enables favorable use of advanced Microsoft technology

  “Unified Communication” for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs)
February 9, 2010 - Telenor has presented a new service for business subscribers - Mail pro, integral part of the Telenor E Office package, thus becoming the first company in Serbia to make a professional e-mail solution based on the Microsoft Exchange technology available to SMEs without significant investments.

The first cooperation arrangement between Microsoft and a mobile operator at this market will enable employees in this sector to use modern communication solutions combined into the “unified communication” concept.

This concept largely simplifies and improves communication among employees who are on the move and away, since they are provided with voice and video communication, e-mail exchange, participation in video conferences, exchange of quick messages, and an access to a common agenda and a corporate address book.


“Microsoft always strives to provide a comprehensive solution which can satisfy modern business needs and generate SMEs’ growth. The solutions within “unified communication” are much more advanced than the e-mail ones used before at PCs or handsets. This technology includes functionalities which have a positive effect on productivity of companies of all sizes. I am glad that Telenor has provided its subscribers with an option of introducing the first solutions from this package easily into their business operations,” says Vladan Živanović, General Manager of Microsoft in Serbia.

“For the first time, SMEs are provided with a high-quality solution for communication among employees. The main advantage of the offer is that, except a monthly subscription per user, package subscribers will have no major investments into the implementation of the Microsoft Exchange platform and its subsequent maintenance,” says Marek Slacik, Chief Marketing and Sales Officer of Telenor in Serbia.


Switching from the previous e-mail solution will be simple, as well as an option of using a previously registered domain. It is also possible to redirect e-mails from other accounts in use and change an unlimited number of users.


In addition Microsoft’s response to increasing needs of business on the move, Telenor has introduced handsets supporting the Mail pro service, with regularly available Internet access solutions. Recommended handset models include HTC HD2, Nokia E72 and Nokia E52, as well as HTC Snap, which is available at RSD1 within this offer exclusively.
