Every day, new information is created, circulated and collected within an organization. With the daily influx of massive information, efficient data management becomes a primary concern for most employees.
With this, ePLDT—in partnership with Microsoft Philippines and PLDT ALPHA—recently brought its ‘Reinventing Productivity in the New World of Work’ event to IT experts in South Luzon at the Seda Hotel in Nuvali, Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
The event aims to empower thought leaders in the South to be more aware of the New World of Work—how businesses and business leaders can make insight-driven decisions with the help of technology.
Benedicto Perez, PLDT Corporate Relationship Management Head, discussed the vital roles played by the latest business collaborating tools in enabling better collaboration to improve customer experience.
“We can help your organization enable better collaboration and foster insightful discussions through effective productivity tools. In today’s enterprise digital ecosystem, it is imperative that your business adopts and reacts via relevant technology,” said Perez.
According to Chet Alviz, Head of SMACS (Social, Mobile, Analytics, Cloud and Security), events such as these are vital in helping enterprise clients utilize digital resources to help get their job done in a more synergized manner.
“We are now living in the age of the ‘mobile-first’ consumer; where the customer’s experience of any product or service defines success or failure of a venture. In order to reach these mobile first consumers, digital tech adoption is key --- and collaboration is vital”, adds Alviz.
The event was joined in by key technology experts from Microsoft Philippines including Tovia Va’aelua, Innovative Enterprises Lead, and Mae Moreno, Cloud Solutions Lead, to demonstrate how to utilize the cloud in enhancing customer experiences and how to thrive in the New World of Work. Furthermore, Miguel Gonzalez of PLDT discussed the advantages of outsourcing IT services to businesses in different industries, particularly tapping ePLDT’s VITRO data centers for colocation.
The Microsoft team also highlighted its Microsoft Office 365, a top-of-the-line set of cloud-based productivity tools that improves collaboration—from e-mail and IM to social networking and video conferencing.
Alviz concluded, “This new age of technology offers us a lot of tremendous changes in the way we work and live. But the change is always good—we are able to collaborate better, work in a more synergized environment, and at the same time get optimum results that are far better than what we could have imagined.”
