• PLDT unit starts offering Google Maps for Business


    Pioneering Cloud services provider, IP Converge Data Services Inc. (IPC), will be bringing the benefits of Google Maps to Philippine enterprises such as utilities, government, telecommunications, transportation, shipping and logistics, real estate and retail.

    In a statement, Reynaldo Huergas, president of IPC, said that, “Google Maps for Business is an important addition to our Cloud services. We are now more equipped to leverage our being a Google enterprise partner to enable more sectors of Philippine society achieve more success.”

    As the newest Google Geo Reseller in the Philippines, IPC now resells and deploys Google Maps for Business to give Philippine enterprises superior geo-location tools and capabilities to better run their business.

    And like the rest of IPC Cloud Services, with Google Maps for Business, enterprises can scale on demand.

    Although the world’s most popular maps are also offered on the web for free, customers who need enhanced features such as advanced geocoding, added support and full control over advertising will have to avail of the Google Maps for Business from a Google Geo Reseller like IPC.

    Google Maps for Business also delivers the service and support enterprise organizations need when incorporating maps into customer facing websites or mission critical internal applications.

    Optimal productivity
    Google Maps for Business will enable users to make better decisions through unique insights gained from visualizing a company’s data on a Google map, gain optimal productivity from its people and assets through location and dispatch tools, increase visitor traffic and drive user action by embedding maps in the firm’s sites and applications, and build location-aware web and mobile apps.

    This partnership kicked off IPC’s “cloudvocacy” to promote cloud computing as a means to lessen the burden of rising hardware and software costs on Philippine enterprises.

    As IPC’s “Software-as-a-Service” offering, Google Apps has created tremendous time and cost savings for businesses, as it requires zero capital expenditure on licenses and hardware, and needs minimal administration.

    A wholly owned subsidiary of ePLDT, IPC offers a full suite of cloud services. These services are offered through IPC’s cloud.com.ph portal, which is powered by a robust cloud platform hosted in its own Internet data center.
