MANILA, Philippines — PLDT’s business-to-business arm is providing a solutions bundle designed to help micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) get their businesses back on track.

Recognizing that businesses have differentiated digital priorities, PLDT Enterprise designed a package with flexibility to allow MSMEs build upon their requirements.

This can be achieved by offering reliable business and connectivity solutions and selecting add-on services best suited to shift their operations to digital, all of which are free of use in the first three months.

“We at PLDT Enterprise have always aimed to make a positive impact on every single business. With our current situation posing many financial pressure on MSMEs, we have endeavored to design a customizable solution that goes beyond basic connectivity to enable them to kickstart their operations while striving for financial recovery,” ePLDT president and chief executive officer and senior vice president head of PLDT and Smart Enterprise Business Groups Jovy Hernandez said.

PLDT said the offer comes with an array of add-on solution options ranging from software, hardware, and services.

It said PayMaya, cyber security and digital collaboration tools are just some of those being offered under the package to help MSMEs build online presence, accept online payments, improve productivity and collaboration, and enhance operations.

The overall cost of the bundle will differ, depending on the add-ons selected by customers.

The business bundle, which is available for a limited period and is set to include even more solutions in the coming months, has received support from the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), encouraging MSMEs to avail of the package to jumpstart business activity.

“Our MSMEs make up the largest portion of business today. With the effects of the pandemic slowing down business activity, members of the private and public sectors must come together to look for novel ways to stimulate business activity,” Trade Secretary Ramon Lopez said.

“We support PLDT Enterprise in their initiatives to enable the local MSME market with their stimulus program. Indeed, business models and operations have changed and will continue to do so as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We laud PLDT for stepping up in assisting MSMEs successfully pivot towards digital without causing financial strain,” DTI assistant secretary Jean Pacheco said.
