Converge Enterprise offers the country’s premiere connectivity and data solutions. Running on Converge ICT’s pure end-to-end fiber network, it has been instrumental in ensuring that its business partners and clients enjoy operational efficiency integral to their respective sustainable growth. With that in mind, Converge has taken it upon itself to find ways to innovate and strengthen its brand to better serve the market.
Hence, the partnership with Tata Communications who, through its Global Partners Program (GPP) has been able to forge strategic alliances with leading local companies from different regions worldwide.
Tata Communications is a multi-national company that has developed data solutions that globally set trends and standards for business entities. As a Tier 1 Internet Service Provider (ISP) and global supplier to local ISPs from around the world, the company consistently deploys strategic alliances with partners, channels, system integrators and carriers in countries where they operate.
“With this partnership with Tata, Converge ICT can now extend its service reach to other countries for its Enterprise customers in the Philippines,” said Alan Smyth, Head of Wholesale and Enterprise Sales at Converge ICT. Smyth explains that the strengthened resources opened by this alliance is one major consideration for the partnership.
“Instead of creating these services and re-inventing the wheel ourselves, Converge ICT decided to work with Tata to fast-track adding value-added service portfolios and leveraging on the mature product lines of Tata for the enterprise market.” Smyth explains.
Converge Enterprise’s clients are set to experience optimized services through Tata´s wide range of premium level products and services which would “help clients become more efficient, achieve increased productivity, generate customer loyalty, as well as mitigate potential business risks,” Smyth shares.
The partnership, according to Patricia Briones, Regional Partner Manager of Tata Communications, allows the two companies to offer new innovations which the consumers and enterprise clients will benefit from. “We also extend Tata’s certification program to the partner’s technical personnel, so they can familiarize themselves with Tata’s products and sell them more effectively,” Briones emphasized.
Initially, Smyth shared that the “Direct Cloud Connect,” “A-Z VoIP service,” and international ethernet service are among the Tata services that Converge ICT will offer. Everyone should look forward to the complete line of new products and services that Converge ICT and Tata have in store for us. This partnership is set to upgrade and reinvigorate the Enterprise sector and surely benefit the clientele they serve and the community as a whole.
