“We laud the Mandaluyong City Government for your efforts in transforming your city — one of the most progressive cities in the whole country — into a Smart City,” said PLDT and Smart chief revenue officer and ePLDT president and CEO Eric R. Alberto.

Through PLDT Enterprise’s Private Automatic Branch Exchange (PABX) and an Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) to streamline communication services, Mandaluyong City is now able to deploy CCTVs and the Smart SOS Dispatch solution.

“We are very thankful that we partnered with PLDT so we can better serve our constituents through the deployment of CCTVs, among many other products and services,” said Mayor Menchie A. Abalos.

In addition, the City of Mandaluyong also welcomes the introduction of PayMaya Plus Citizen ID cards. PayMaya is the digital financial arm of PLDT and Smart’s Voyager Innovations.

The partnership is part of PLDT Enterprise’s extensive roadmap of transforming local government units into smart cities as part of the #READY program, which provides LGUs with ICT solutions, infrastructure and connectivity to help serve its constituents better.
