SMEs go digital with the right ICT tools from Globe myBusiness
Running a business is one challenging journey to success. Owners of a small or medium enterprise (SME) needs to check every step to make sure everything falls into place, every transaction covered, and every branch secure. Thus, call of duty entails them to sacrifice time, effort, money, and more. They need to be connected to their business round-the-clock, so they barely have time for their family and themselves. That is why they need a partner to help him run their business with the same passion — one who is not just there to support him, but truly grasps their needs.
As everyone embraces a digital lifestyle, running a business is turning into a journey that SMEs can enjoy, as long as they have the right partner and tools. That is why Globe myBusiness works closely with SMEs, understanding the demands of their businesses and day-to-day lives by harnessing new technologies to provide customizable plans and innovative solutions to help them run their businesses efficiently and achieve success.
Through the Digital Lifestyle Expo held last August 22, at the SM Megamall Fashion Hall, SMEs are now more empowered by technology, with Globe myBusiness as their right partner with the right tools for business. It showcased various ICT offerings such as AdBlast, a text message sent to targeted SMEs based on their profiles who received an invite to visit the Globe myBusiness booth. Upon entering, they were asked to register through the Google Form Tool via Google Apps for Business. Afterwards, they were witness to other ICT innovations such as Globe Charge, TXTConnect, and CCTV bundles.
