Maxis teams up with Microsoft to launch productivity solution
In an era where Small & Medium Enterprises (SME) stand out as a thriving contributor to the country’s GDP, business efficiency becomes paramount in day-to-day operations and growth.
As part of its ongoing commitment to helping the growth of this robust sector, Maxis has partnered with Microsoft to launch a productivity solution that incorporates Office 365 (O365) into the MaxisONE Business solutions suite. The solution is aimed at helping SMEs raise their productivity levels through a cost efficient, technology-driven package over the country’s best data network.
The MaxisONE Business, launched in 2014, is the all-in-one Internet plan for businesses that comes with unlimited talk and text, worry-free Internet, Business Grade Services and mobility solutions. The incorporation of O365 into the solution means that customers also get installed Office applications on PCs, tablets and smartphones, 1TB of cloud storage and a host of other value added services.
The benefits of using MaxisONE Business with O365:
- 24/7 solution support: Customers have access to experts 24 hours, 7 days a week, for any subscription, technical, or even installation issues.
- Single point of contact: Customers will receive only a single bill from Maxis, who will be their one and only point of contact
- Monthly Payments: Pay only monthly subscriptions, with no upfront investment costs
The MaxisONE Business with O365 for SMEs is the first of many more solutions in partnership with Microsoft to come, which underlines a common vision between both parties to drive digitalization of Malaysian businesses.
“The reality of today’s business environment is that customers need the freedom to work from anywhere. What the MaxisONE Business with O365 essentially does is offers new ways of working anywhere and on the go, through an OPEX model that will allow businesses to operate more efficiently through collaboration. So it is ideal for all businesses and those who have the urgent need to grow and do things differently. Moreover, with our leading high speed 4G network, the experience of using this technologically-driven solution is amplified,” said Shanti Jusnita Johari, Maxis’ Head of Enterprise Marketing and Mobility.
“Today, more people than ever are working outside the office, on a range of mobile devices. To keep up with the speed of business, employees need to access their work and connect with their teams wherever they go. People want to have the flexibility as to where and when they work – and Microsoft’s Office 365 solutions for businesses enables your team to work together anywhere, with the same familiar experience across PCs, tablets, and mobile devices.
Whether you are collaborating on important business documents, meeting with your team, or connecting with customers and partners, Microsoft Office 365 uniquely offers a consistent, familiar platform for expanding the boundaries of your business,” said Azizah Ali, General Manager, Small and Midmarket Solutions and Partners, Microsoft Malaysia.
