COEUR d'ALENE, Idaho - Verizon small-business customers in Idaho now can consolidate charges for the company's local, long-distance, wireless, DSL and optional services on one bill.
"Our customers deserve the convenience of one bill for their telecommunications services," said Linda Kruse, vice president, marketing operations for Verizon Retail Markets. "They want to be able to see charges for all services on one monthly statement and be able to write one check. Verizon's goal is to help small-business customers become more efficient and to enable them to spend time operating and expanding their businesses."
To sign up for ONE-BILL®, customers need to have Verizon local service and Verizon Wireless service. Both accounts must have good credit records.
"Wireless service is an integral part of the business customer's telecommunications equation," said John Stratton, vice president and chief marketing officer of Verizon Wireless. "ONE-BILL makes good business sense. It gives customers another tool to help manage their business expenses, and it's free."
ONE-BILL customers who are registered users of Verizon's Web site, www.verizon.com, can view all their Verizon charges - including Verizon Wireless charges - online, and they can pay their consolidated bill electronically via the Web. To register for online payments, Verizon customers need information listed on their business phone bill.
To find out if they are eligible and to order Verizon's ONE-BILL, Verizon customers in Idaho can call their local Verizon business office now, or visit www.verizon.com/ONE-BILL beginning Dec. 22, 2003. Customers will receive their first ONE-BILL within two to three months after enrollment.
In addition to Idaho, ONE-BILL also is available to Verizon's small-business customers in Arizona, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Rhode Island, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Washington, D.C.
