The local office of software titan Microsoft has entered into an agreement with Solar Entertainment Corporation (SEC) for the adoption of cloud-based productivity suite Office 365.
Solar, which has continuously grown in the past year to become one of the largest channel operators in the Philippines, has expanded rapidly that has resulted in a number of challenges in its operations.
As it employees were becoming more mobile, they were also becoming much more collaborative. Given that a number of their people work offsite, they needed a solution that would allow them to be productive while on-the-go and enable them to seamlessly communicate with each other beyond just sending emails back and forth.
To address these challenges, Solar decided to deploy Office 365, which offers a number of collaboration tools such as enterprise-grade email, group sites and portals through SharePoint, instant messaging and conferencing through Lync, as well as a highly secure enterprise social network through Yammer.
Users also benefit from online versions of Microsoft’s productivity applications such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
“At Solar Entertainment Corporation, we strive to continuously provide innovative services to our customers, and we make it our mission to ensure that our people are able to leverage on the best and the latest innovations — such as cloud — to significantly innovate the way they work in this digital age,” said Wilson Tieng, president of Solar Entertainment.
“Microsoft Philippines is thrilled to be working with Solar Entertainment Corporation and becoming part of their journey towards transforming and re-imagining their business through groundbreaking solutions such as Office 365,” said Dianna Tibbs, director for small and mid-market solutions and partners at Microsoft Philippines.
