Doro signs retail agreement with NCBI
Mobile phone manufacruter Doro has entered into a strategic retail agreement with the National Council for the Blind of Ireland (NCBI). The charity will now offering Doro’s mobile and fixed line devices through its shops in Dublin and Kilkenny and online.
Doro specialises in mobile phones for senior citizens that benefit from features such as larger buttons than regular handsets. Doro also makes handsets for home use.
Des Kenny, CEO, NCBI Group, said: “NCBI’s shop provides practical solutions to many of the problems that people with sight loss encounter. Many of those who use our services are dealing with sight loss later in life, which can leave them vulnerable to becoming isolated. Staying in contact with friends and family is essential so easy-to-use mobiles and landline telephones are very popular in our shop. Adding Doro to our offering is a significant step forward in our commitment to providing the best solutions for our customers. The company has worked hard to ensure its range is sensitive and caters for the specific needs of an audience with varying levels of sight. Doro’s attention to detail within its designs ensures users can easily stay connected both inside and outside their homes.”
Chris Millington, managing director, Doro Ireland, said: “Our relationship with NCBI is a perfect way to reach those who may experience reduced vision. NCBI is a well-respected charity that does a huge amount of excellent work in this area and we’re viewing this as the start of a long relationship.”
