Florida-based RebelFone, a provider of international cell phone services and international mobile rentals for travel to more than 200 countries, announced it is seeking to add new business partners. RebelFone does airtime reselling for 38 countries and provides coverage in more than 200 countries. The offering includes international SIM cards, international cell phones, international cell phone rental, global data solutions and worldwide BlackBerry solutions. Clients can get their international phone numbers and other products before leaving the country and they receive 24/7 customer support and simple monthly billing. RebelFone offerings come without any contract term and services are free of any rental for a limited period.
“RebelFone has had success with consumers and businesses,” said Karan Sarin, RebelFone’s vice president of strategic alliances and business development. “The current world economic climate, highlighted by the economic slowdown, is forcing companies to consider any and all cost cutting measures, so we are seeking to add business partners in North America to help us expand our business with enterprises.”
RebelFone’s partner program, called “Rebel League,” launched in October, and currently has about 25 partners. The company is seeking partners with synergies toward what it deems the three Ts: travel, telecom and telecom expense management.
Partners can resell any part of RebelFone’s portfolio individually or all of the products/services to their customers as a value-add. Partners can either refer the customers to RebelFone for upfront commission and the company will handle them 100 percent from there, or the partner can serve as a RebelFone VAR and front end with the customer with a second level of support and billing being offered by RebelFone. VARs operate under a margin-based program, where they are allowed to set their own prices.
RebelFone now operates more than 18,000 international mobile lines worldwide. A retail network makes RebelFone SIM cards available in more than 40 stores at airports across America.
