Globe shifts to Google

/ 09:05 PM August 09, 2013

Globe Telecom Inc. has shifted to Google business solutions for its internal use—a move it says will improve customer service, the company said in a statement.

The Google Apps is a suite of tools that include products like Gmail, Google Drive, Google+ and Google Calendar.

These, in turn, are expected to provide in-house communication services, allowing Internet-based meetings, data and video sharing and online chat.


The shift would likewise provide Globe with “flexibility” as it seeks to enhance the mobility of its 6,000 employees.

“This collaboration with Google will enable us to future-proof our working environment in step with our future-proof network and IT infrastructure,” Globe president Ernest Cu said in the statement, referring to the company’s massive $790-million network and IT modernization program.

Globe joins over five million businesses worldwide that have shifted to Google business solutions.

Globe recently announced a plan to move to its new corporate headquarters later this month.

“The Google Apps will support a clutter-free and paperless environment envisioned at the new headquarters as employees will be working through an online platform that will allow a green office transaction initiative,” the company said.

The new office will be at Bonifacio Global City. The building, dubbed Globe Tower, will be the company’s main hub and will house 4,000 employees currently scattered in different offices across Metro Manila.
