Cell C is pleased to announce that Seventy2 Telecommunications, incorporating GloCell Retail as a licensed brand (GloCell), has been appointed as a new Service Agent for the company. GloCell will service the customers being transferred from Altech Autopage, following approval and transfer of these customers by Altech.
“We are naturally pleased that the competition’s commission has ruled in favour of the transaction and we look forward to delivering new ground-breaking personalised service to our subscribers and their families, also better value,” says Alessandro Mariola, Glocell Founder and Managing Director.
Established in 2001, GloCell is a ZAR5 billion a year independent cellular telecommunications group operating in South Africa, with Investec as major shareholders, and which specialises in the provision of Cell C contracts, as well as the distribution of all network prepaid and virtual products to banks, petroleum companies, major retailers, wholesalers and emerging markets.
“GloCell is in the process of taking over and rebranding many of Autopage’s outlets nationally, upgrading these to become experience stores and rebranding them GloCell,” adds Mariola.
“GloCell has instilled a culture of accountability with its staff and one of enhanced service for our customers so we look forward to extending this to our new family of Autopage subscribers who join us.”
Voted by consumers as South Africa’s Number One Service Provider and Industry Winner for the last five consecutive years in the Ask Afrika Orange Index Awards, GloCell is one of only two prestigious brands across 110 industries to have won and retained the title five times. The awards are regarded the benchmark for service excellence.
