UCPB recently sealed a partnership agreement with ePLDT, Inc. and PLDT Enterprise for the Bank’s adoption of Microsoft Office 365.
Office 365 is a suite of productivity tools, which allows users to work anytime, anywhere and on any device. It boasts of communication solutions built for effective team collaboration—from e-mail and Instant Messaging (IM) to social networking and video conferencing. UCPB also adopted Skype for Business Cloud PBX on top of the Office 365 package.
Prior to the event, UCPB went through its Microsoft Exchange 2010 migration process to fully integrate Office 365 into the company’s day-to-day banking operations. ePLDT immersed UCPB’s selected department representatives in the suite’s full features in a 3-day onboarding session. UCPB is the first ePLDT customer to undergo the Office 365 Adoption Program.
According to UCPB President and CEO Higinio Macadaeg Jr., the partnership with ePLDT helped in providing resolution to its disaster recovery requirements through the cloud-based application while improving internal collaboration among its employees.
“We look forward to more opportunities to enrich our working environment through powerful solutions that will further enable our associates to deliver the Bank’s personal and proactive service to our clients. With our partnership to ePLDT, I am confident that we will be able to make significant progress towards achieving our mission,” Mr. Macadaeg said.
Chief Revenue Officer of PLDT-SMART and ePLDT President and CEO Ernesto R. Alberto said that the partnership reaffirms ePLDT and PLDT Enterprise’s commitment in delivering smart solutions to organizations, injecting innovative business technologies into their day-to-day operations.
“We aspired to transform PLDT into a trusted and leading technology provider for our market constituencies and consumers. With our industry-leading ICT arm, ePLDT is driving our business farther into becoming a true and capable enabler of enterprises as you go into your own transition by injecting technology to move yourself forward. With this partnership in place, we present ourselves as UCPB’s partner today and in the strategic future,” he said.
