Globe Telecom brings cloud technology to PH service industry
Globe Telecom information and communication technology (ICT) arm Globe Business, through its IT Enabled Services Group, continues to be the leading ICT enabler of enterprises in the country with its new partnership with globally-renowned pizza restaurant chain Shakey’s. Globe Business is boosting Shakey’s operations with its cloud-based solution offering Microsoft Office 365.
Microsoft Office 365 provides enterprise-grade tools that bring together the new Office 2016 desktop applications which offer real-time communication and collaboration capabilities. With Office 365 provided by Globe Business, Shakey’s employees can easily access, store, transmit, and manipulate information and applications, and collaborate on files anytime, anywhere on any computer or device with an Internet connection.
Shakey’s signed up for over 800 Microsoft Office 365 licenses and will use the cloud-based solution as their collaboration platform within the company, going beyond just email and Microsoft Office. With the Office 365 licenses, Shakey’s employees gain access to collaboration and productivity apps such as OneDrive, SharePoint, Yammer, and Skype for Business, as well as strengthened privacy and security through Information Rights Management (IRM).
OneDrive and SharePoint enable convenient and secure file sharing, and save backup copies of company files by automatically synchronizing documents, pictures, and videos to the Microsoft cloud. Equally important is IRM or Information Rights Management which protects sensitive company information from unauthorized access (inside or outside organization premises). Where quick and easy collaboration and communication is key in delivering results, Yammer brings together people, conversations, content, and business data in an enterprise social private network across departments, locations, and business apps.
To complete the collaboration suite, Skype for Business connects employees everywhere with a secure platform for presence, instant messaging, voice and video communication, and virtual multiparty conference meetings over the internet that can be done from any device.
“Globe Business remains a driving force in the growth of local enterprises that boost the Philippine economy. We thank Shakey’s for trusting us with growing their enterprise further and introducing the benefits of Cloud technology that will help improve work efficiency and productivity. Our partnership with Microsoft allows us to give our customers the edge when it comes to digitizing their processes and enable their journey to digital transformation,” said Globe Senior Advisor for Enterprise and IT Enabled Services Group Mike Frausing.
Mauch Franco, Chief Information Officer of Shakey’s adds, “The main reasons why we transferred to O365 are reliability and security, plus the fact that O365 offers bigger storage and enterprise-grade collaboration tools. We want to enable our employees with the right tools so that they can focus on business essentials in a collaborative environment. This forms part of our local and global expansion and growth.”
Globe Business, through its IT Enabled Services Group, offers a range of IT solutions such as industry-accredited data centers, cloud solutions and managed services as well as a complete portfolio of business applications like machine-to-machine and productivity tools.
