Metro Retail Stores Group boosts digital transformation with G Suite and Globe Business
Metro Retail Stores Group, Inc. (MRSGI) has partnered with Globe Business, the enterprise arm of Globe Telecom, for the use of the G Suite office collaboration tool to boost team productivity and further enhance digital transformation efforts.
MRSGI has been in operations for 36 years, starting as Gaisano Metro. It encompasses multiple store formats: Metro Department Store, Metro Supermarket, and Super Metro Hypermarket and has grown into a company of over 9,000 employees with 54 stores serving the needs of over 250,000 shoppers a day.
With the partnership, MRSGI will be able to work better through the use of secure and reliable workplace tools for email, calendar, text and video chat, document creation, project websites, and online storage and sync.
“The need to keep up and stay competitive is now more apparent and that is why we chose Globe Business as our partner in the company’s ongoing drive to digitally transform. Before we implement far-reaching measures to revolutionize our business, we initiated the digitalization of our day-to-day business operations in the way our employees communicate and collaborate with each other,” said Rex Cabanilla, MRSGI Chief Technical Officer.
Senior Vice President for Globe Business Peter Maquera said: “Being a prime enabler of Metro Retail Stores Group in their pursuit to become a premier retail hub gives us a sense of achievement and responsibility. Globe Business is all about using technology to maximize our clients’ operating efficiency which will translate to increased savings and profitability.”
