PLDT to support e-commerce needs of MSMEs
Telecommunications giant PLDT has teamed up with entrepreneurship advocate Go Negosyo to arm micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) with different e-commerce capabilities.
Through this tie-up, PLDT and its digital innovations arm Voyager Innovations (Voyager) aim to support the program of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) to equip more than 100,000 MSMEs with digital solutions by 2020.
“We are committed to helping SMEs thrive and become more globally competitive through digital services and solutions,” said PLDT chair and chief executive Manuel V. Pangilinan. “We are confident that this partnership with Go Negosyo will positively contribute to government’s programs to improve the lives of our people by promoting digital entrepreneurship.”
Through more than 750 Negosyo Centers nationwide, local businesses can participate in Go Negosyo’s “Mentor Me” program which has been expanded to include training in setting up and managing online stores through the Tackthis!, the online store builder of Voyager.
This platform also provides small enterprises with the logistics capability to deliver goods to their online buyers. —DORIS DUMLAO-ABADILLA
