Sovereign Trust explores Starcomms’ VPN

REPOSITIONING Sovereign Trust Insurance Plc, has acquired 75 Starcomms lines worth N800,000 in order to explore the Virtual Private Network (VPN) deal sealed recently, just as it is designed to reduce call tariffs within the company’s desire to have a seamless communication platform.

Starcomms is a leading Private Telephone Operator (PTO) with over 250,000 subscribers nationwide.

This follows the pact entered recently in Lagos between the two companies to explore the Starcomms’ Virtual Private Network (VPN) solution.

The solution is designed for families, clubs, organizations or any group of individuals not less than 10, to call each within the group at zero charge for 30 days at specific rental charge, while calls outside the group attract some tariff.

This is coming as the insurance firm is positioning to recapitalize following a recent directive by the Federal Government.

The deal, which is to improve the insurance firm’s efficiency in service delivery with seamless communication within the organization is to truly reposition as a 21st century insurance organization.

According to the Managing Director, Sovereign Trust, Mr. Seun Ajayi, his firm is the first to deploy this service among insurance companies in the country, basically to give qualitative, prompt and efficient service to clients hence enabling the marketing staff to reach clients as easily as possible.

Mr. Ajayi also noted that the deal is in accordance with the firm’s mission, which is “to be a highly professional and innovative company providing the best form of insurance protection and risk management services to our various policy holders in an efficient and responsive manner”.

Senior Corporate Sales Coordinator, Starcomms, Mr. Adewale Da-Costa, said the VPN from the operator’s stable is “a business partner” anytime, any day.

Stressing that it allows participating companies a clear savings on their telecom spending by more than 70 per cent.
