With the PLDT Group wholly supporting the country’s infrastructure for ICT and promoting cloud adoption, PLDT and ePLDT are forging an extensive tie up to help offer Microsoft Office 365 in the country that introduces local enterprises to a full end-to-end cloud-based ICT solution for their business operations. With PLDT being a reseller of Microsoft Office 365 in the country, ePLDT is likewise eyeing to become the technical support partner for the cloud service’s implementation and after-sales requirements.
“We have been pushing enterprise solutions such as the Microsoft Office 365 which goes beyond just Office tools and have effectively packaged these services with PLDT’s enterprise connectivity products like iGate and DSL. This partnership with Microsoft aligns with PLDT ALPHA’s vision to be the trusted end-to-end ICT partner of the enterprise,” said PLDT FVP and Head of PLDT ALPHA Enterprise Jovy Hernandez.
A globally-recognized industry leader in IT, Microsoft Office 365 brings together cloud versions of the IT Company’s most trusted communications and collaboration products, expanding PLDT ALPHA Enterprise’s cloud-based offerings under PLDT Cloud. The cloud-based service is designed to serve the operational IT needs of businesses at all levels.
“Office 365 is based on the familiar easy-to-use Microsoft applications, but now made as a full cloud service. Aside from the latest Microsoft Office suite, Office 365 includes SharePoint Online, Lync Online, and Exchange Online, creating a full productivity solution that you can access anywhere whenever you’re online or on-the-go,” said Microsoft Philippines General Manager Karrie Ilagan.
“This could decrease companies’ reliance on physical servers to run their business applications, and take advantage of running their applications on the cloud maximizing their social engagement, collaboration, and control of their operating needs,” she added.
PLDT ALPHA Enterprise and ePLDT have aggressively marketed cloud solutions to the local enterprise market as a manageable means for their operations. Through Cloud services, companies are able to save on costs as expensive operating system licenses become more affordable depending on how much it is used in their operations and becoming more flexible and scalable as to how much features are being availed.
Formally launching the solution to the local enterprise earlier this year, PLDT ALPHA has since offered clients the Microsoft Office 365 suite in tandem with a wider and more diverse range of PLDT’s end-to-end ICT solutions. Companies can now opt to purchase Office 365 with either Windows operating system upgrades, Yammer enterprise social network access, SharePoint Online access, enterprise PLDT DSL connections, and other ICT bundles that meet their specific business needs.
“More enterprise organizations are adopting the cloud due to its positive impact both on business innovation and the bottom line. Our expansion of the PLDT Cloud is testament to PLDT ALPHA Enterprise’s commitment to providing more cloud-based solutions that help drive enterprises with more competitive advantage and growth,” said PLDT FVP and Head of PLDT ALPHA Enterprise Jovy Hernandez.
“We are committed in investing and capitalizing on training and certifications that will make our personnel in ePLDT at par with global standards. We are ready to support this strategic partnership with Microsoft to ensure that customers get the full end-to-end ICT experience of the PLDT Group,” said ePLDT COO Nerisse Ramos.
Since offering the PLDT Cloud, PLDT has closed several deals that integrate Microsoft Cloud-based services to their clients’ operations including notable establishments in the retail, manufacturing, and food and beverage industries.
Recently, ePLDT was also recognized as Microsoft Philippines’ Compete Partner of the Year for their efforts in pushing Microsoft Cloud services to enterprise clients in the country. Through ePLDT and PLDT ALPHA Enterprise, cloud services have seen consistent take up among local enterprises for cloud-based solutions such as the PLDT Cloud being marketed as a manageable means for office operations, and affordable alternatives to expensive software licensing.
