French tech firm Alcatel-Lucent has announced it is offering three months of free license for its Rainbow enterprise collaboration tool to support local businesses greatly affected by the impact of Covid-19.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, telecom titan PLDT said it is giving out free trial period licenses to their enterprise customers to access and use business-grade collaboration tools Cisco Webex, Microsoft Teams, and Google Hangouts.
The DICT said on Wednesday, March 18, that it has proposed the adoption of telecommuting guidelines to the Civil Service Commission as government offices across the country embrace the alternative work arrangement as a way of preventing the spread of Covid-19.
The measure “provides a guide and institutionalizes the policy on the adoption of alternative work arrangements.”
The Senate has ratified the bicameral conference committee report on the proposed law which will allow employees in the private sector to telecommute or work-from-home.
