- A customised service package for tradespeople, supported by two new app partnerships and a bundled iPad.
Telekom Deutschland (TDE) released a customised service package for tradespeople, supported by two new app partnerships. The €65‑per-month Branchenlösung für Handwerker (“Industry Solution for Craftsmen”) bundle comes with an Apple iPad, 15GB of 4G data, and “personal” customer support, as well as two apps: German software provider openHandwerk’s tool for managing invoices, orders, quotes, and tasks; and Canadian/German player magicplan’s floor-planning software. As typical, TDE stressed the apps’ data is stored in Group data centres within Germany, ensuring regulatory compliance. In addition to the monthly fee, the service comes with a €50 upfront charge.
