Caterham F1 Team has confirmed that Truphone, the pioneering international mobile operator without country borders, has extended its support for the team for 2014 and beyond with the new title of Official Mobile Telecommunications Partner.
Truphone first started working with Caterham F1 Team in 2013 as provider of all the team’s mobile telecommunications requirements through a range of services and handsets with multiple numbers on one SIM, giving the team a competitive advantage with patented technology that reduces the complexity of communicating internationally. With the expansion of the partnership, Truphone will continue to provide all of Caterham F1 Team’s mobile telecommunication needs, and the Truphone logo will now be seen on the team’s 2014 CT05 racecars at a number of races throughout the 2014 season.
With Caterham F1 Team regularly preparing and travelling around the globe to races, Truphone seamlessly connects the whole team to its HQ at the Leafield Technical Centre in Oxfordshire, allowing the team to use mobile communications pre- and post-race anywhere in the world. Sharing Caterham F1 Team’s passion and focus on innovation, Truphone also works closely with the team’s IT staff to develop new mobile telecommunication solutions that support Caterham F1 Team’s focus on high performance and gaining a competitive edge.
Rob Jones, Truphone’s European Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to further extend our partnership with Caterham F1 Team in 2014. As a business, Formula 1 epitomises what a modern international business is faced with; working in a highly competitive environment with rapidly changing technology and managing a highly mobile workforce. Outages aren’t an option for Caterham F1 Team, so our unique systems tools monitor network performance to identify and address issues in real-time, while our Business Help Team is available 24/7 to offer extra peace of mind. When we started working with Caterham F1 last year, we aspired to be an official brand sponsor within three years and we have achieved this in just a year which demonstrates the rapid acceleration of Truphone’s growth globally”.
Bill Peters, Caterham Group Head of IT: “Since Truphone joined us last year we have seen our call charges drop and the efficiency of our mobile communications improve significantly. I could not give a better testament to the value of our partnership with Truphone than that, so renewing and extending our partnership for 2014 and beyond is very good news and I look forward to working even more closely with Truphone’s dedicated support team to add yet more innovation and efficiency to a service that is already world class.”
