Doro® increases its presence in Australia with a retail agreement with a telecom operator

Sweden, Lund, 2012-04-27 11:00 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  

Doro today announces a retail agreement with Optus in Australia. Australian seniors and their relatives can now purchase the Doro PhoneEasy® 615 through Optus online and in nearly 300 Optus retail stores, 170 Big W stores and 370 Dick Smith stores nationwide.

Optus is since 1992 an Australian leader in integrated communications, serving more than 10 million subscribers.  In 2001 SingTel from Singapore became the parent company of Optus, paving the way to become a strong and strategic telecommunications player within the Asia-Pacific region.

As Australia’s second largest telecommunications company, Optus provides a broad range of services including mobile, telephony, business network services, internet and satellite services and subscription television. Optus operates its own fixed, mobile and satellite network infrastructure, investing more than $16 billion in the construction of the networks to date.

Gavin Williams, Head of Segment Marketing, Optus said, “There is a vast seniors market in Australia and we’re confident this handset will resonate well with our older customers. Doro’s mobile phone range and in particular, the Doro PhoneEasy® 615 handset, specifically adapts today’s must-have technologies to make them easier for elderly Australians to use.”

 

Doro’s President and CEO Jérôme Arnaud comments: “I am very pleased that, thanks to our 3G technology development, we can bring another of our easy-to-use phones to Australian seniors. I am also happy to have Optus as our second partner in Australia. This is important to us because the Pacific region is one of our prioritized geographical areas. With our newly released service Doro Experience® in mind, I also see additional opportunities for the partnership with Optus. I hope that today’s agreement represents the first step in developing our cooperation.”
