May 4, 2016

The digital revolution has not only changed the way consumers connect and consume content on their mobile devices but also in the way small and medium entrepreneurs (SME) run their businesses. It has become imperative for SMEs to expand their presence and reach in the digital space with the shift to a more digitally-connected lifestyle.

As the demand for connectivity in the SME segment grows, Globe myBusiness, the SME arm of Globe Telecom, is offering business owners an all-in-one internet package complete with business solutions geared to address specific business needs on the sidelines of the 4th installment of its Globe myBusiness Day digital solutions caravan in Binondo, Manila.

For SMEs looking to provide internet services to their staff and customers, they can avail of the Connectivity package. The package offers internet access of up to 10Mbps and WiFi Hub to allow businesses to earn more by offering managed access to a WiFi connection. Establishments will be able to offer WiFi for free or for a fee, opening up opportunities to attract more customers and at the same time, earn from this additional revenue stream.

Also available is the Operations package, which enables SMEs to save on paper costs through digitizing paper forms and storing them in cloud. Business owners get access to internet speeds of up to 10Mbps, Canvas, and an Acer Iconia One 7 tablet. Canvas is a digital form builder that lets users collect, file, and process forms online for automated process and workflow capability, real-time data collection, reporting, and analysis, and better response time and customer experience.

Those looking to keep an eye on their business 24/7 can avail of the Security package with internet speeds of up to 10Mbps, a CCTV device, and a mobile postpaid plan with a Lenovo A6000 smartphone. The CCTV can also be accessed distantly via video call and remote viewing via a smartphone. Aside from motion detection, SMEs can prompt e-mail alerts as well as pair with other devices.

SMEs who want to get more work done with a complete office suite can get the Efficiency package where they can create reports easily, monitor reports, and share files faster with internet speeds of up to 10Mbps, access to Microsoft Office 365, and Acer Aspire One 10 laptop. Microsoft Office 365 is a Web-based version of Microsoft's Office suite of enterprise-grade productivity applications delivered to users through the Cloud with access to e-mail, collaboration and unified communications services as well as a suite of Office Web Apps and web-based versions of the traditional Microsoft Office suite of applications.

Finally, SMEs in the logistics, distribution, and restaurant industries can avail of the Logistics package where they can track and monitor the deliveries in real-time with internet speeds of up to 10Mbps, the myBusiness Tracker, and an Acer Aspire One 10 laptop. The myBusiness Tracker is a do-it-yourself portable GPS tracking solution that enables users to monitor the real-time location of their vehicles and assets, allowing SMEs to improve delivery planning, real-time monitoring, improve driving habits and save and avoid unnecessary costs.

All internet plan bundles also come with free landline services and unlimited calls to Globe/TM for the entire 24-month period.

"SMEs can rely on Globe myBusiness as they journey through today's digital revolution with our new internet promo bundles designed to help address their connectivity requirements. The bundles are tailor-fit according to their specific needs so they can trust that these offerings can help them operate their businesses better," says Barbie Dapul, Vice President at Globe myBusiness. "The digital revolution is definitely happening and with our new internet promo bundles giving customers an all-in-one package for their connectivity needs, SMEs are assured that they are one step ahead in terms of giving value to their business and their customers," adds Dapul.

The internet plan bundles comes on the heels of the telco's announcement of the pilot roll-out of its fiber broadband technology in Binondo as part of its vision of ushering the Philippines to become a digital nation by 2020. Once completed by third quarter of 2016, the initiative is expected to provide world-class internet experience in Binondo to benefit homes and SMEs.
