Selling fixed telephony services
Professor: Dr KaramanosIoannis Treppides
 Telepassport Telecommunications
Lecture 1
 The operation which will form the basis for my assignment is theprovision of fixed telecommunication services at Telepassporttelecommunications Cyprus. Telecommunication is an essential need in our days. A very bigpercentage of houses and all companies have at least one fixedtelephone line in different variations: Analog or digital. Telepassportcan provide this service to the public of Cyprus.Selling fixed telecommunication services is the main task out of allsale activities. The way the operation works is the following: Eitherwe contact the customer by telemarketing or the customer contactsus on the phone number or via e-mail or through posted in ouradvertising media. The cuistomer visits our shop or the shop of anauthorized partner or we visit the customer at his/hers premises. The customer signs the relevant forms and in a few days we connectthe phone line. This operation is characterized as the most important for variousreasons.

Second is because it is theservice that generates the most profit and last is because a lot of our other services are provided through the telephone line, egbroadband services.
