|IPC and Intellicare partnership to step up email and shared data collaboration|
The country’s preeminent Healthcare Management Organization (HMO), Intellicare, recently subscribed to Google Apps for Work via leading local cloud firm IPC (IP Converge Data Services, Inc., a subsidiary of ePLDT, Inc.) with the goal of stepping up their overall client servicing.
IPC has built the capabilities necessary to position and deploy the Google for Work suite of products including Google Apps for Work, a full package of online productivity and collaboration tools, as well as Google Maps API for Work which allows organizations to create online maps that are relevant to their business. In addition, IPC boasts of global certification on Google for Work skillsets and resources under its cloud professional services group which is able to provide deployment, change management, and administrator training services to companies that want to maximize their Google for Work subscription to the fullest.
Through this partnership, Intellicare joins over 5 million businesses worldwide that have gone Google. The company will be using Google Apps for Work not only for email management and file storage, but also for real-time cloud-based collaboration within the organization including document sharing, video conferencing and chat. And through its cloud professional services group, IPC ensures that the solution is deployed smoothly and timely within the organization.
According to Reynaldo Huergas, IPC President, “Intellicare required a stable email delivery and management service. Their old systems could not cope with the increasing demands of their business, so we showed them the merits of cloud computing. Many of their staff work off-site and greatly appreciate the mobility that Google Apps for Work provides.”
Huergas added that by signing up for Google Apps for Work, Intellicare is now able to ensure productivity through any mobile device, and keep operations running while telecommuting. “Whether you’re on a smartphone or tablet, Google Apps allow companies to gain access to information on the go, and make business decisions on the fly,” he said.
Intellicare currently holds a fast-growing membership base of over 800,000 and has 14 offices located around the Philippines. A leading HMO in the country, Intellicare stands out by providing holistic and innovative approaches in healthcare.
“Providing quality health services involves being able to access and collaborate over shared data quickly and easily, while maintaining a high level of security. The Google Apps for Work suite allows Intellicare to do just that, helping our staff work as a team wherever they may be,” said Arnaldo Dantis, Intellicare Vice President of Operations.
