An exciting new partnership with digital telecommunications marketplace Mondo sees comparison platform Hippo.co.za expand its offerings to include streamlined mobile deal comparisons.
Already saving customers time and money with quick quote comparisons on everything from a host of insurance products to loans and fibre deals, the partnership will now assist in making sense of the ever-changing world of mobile phone and data products.
Traditionally, Hippo.co.za doesn’t put products directly in consumers’ hands; instead, they help people make informed decisions through side-by-side online comparisons. With this tech-driven solution, customers can now compare a variety of mobile phone and data deals and submit their applications online in just a few clicks. Once a customer’s application has been approved, Mondo will deliver it to their door anywhere in South Africa. This includes a SIM at no additional cost.
“Our partnership with Mondo is great news for consumers,” says Hippo.co.za CEO Bradley Du Chenne. “With the country’s smartphone penetration now at over 90%, connectivity has never been more important to South Africans. Our highly connected population uses cellphones for work, play and everything in between. In this increasingly connected communication landscape, giving customers more choice when it comes to their mobile contracts and data packages will help them save time and money and choose the products that best cater to their individual needs.”
Since 2013 Mondo has connected over 500 000 South Africans to their product of choice through its unique sales process. It’s a one-stop-shop to click, compare and get connected with the best mobile and data deals from South Africa’s leading networks, namely Telkom, Vodacom and MTN.
Mondo caters for South Africans looking for mobile and data deals who are dissatisfied with the restrictive choices, confusing product information and tedious application processes offered elsewhere. It’s equipped to make the process a lot simpler.
“For businesses like Mondo, Hippo.co.za serves as an additional distribution channel,” says Du Chenne. “Our popular comparison platform connects customers with relevant products suited to their needs, helping them to make better choices about anything from short- and long-term insurance quote comparisons to travel deals, medical aid, home and business fibre, and more. Mobile phones and data felt like a natural next step, and our partnership with Mondo enables that.”
“We see Hippo.co.za as a very synergistic partner thanks to its approach to the market, its loyal customer base and its comprehensive product offerings,” says Tara-Paige du Toit, Managing Executive of Mondo Connect. “We believe adding mobile and data deals to the comparison platform will provide Hippo.co.za’s customers with one of the most relevant commodities in today’s world – connectivity.”
