Globe Telecom, one of the leading telecommunications providers in the Philippines, delivers more innovative ICT solutions for enterprises with the recent expansion of its Machine-to-Machine (M2M) services. Offered through its Globe Business unit, the company, who is the first local telco to bring M2M services in the country, is now providing more M2M solutions that can help customers from various industries to take better control of their businesses.
With M2M, enterprises can more effectively oversee their fixed or moving resources by making their business machines communicate directly with each other. It streamlines the monitoring process, minimizing wastage and reducing operational costs. Further, the service allows them to experience real-time information exchange with minimal human intervention, enabling faster, more informed decision-making.
Globe Business’ suite of M2M solutions includes Fleet Management, Fixed Asset Management, and Security and Surveillance. Its first M2M offering, Fleet Management, has been available since 2008 and is widely-accepted in the Manufacturing, Distribution, Transport, Logistics, Freight and Petroleum industries. It is a simple and easy-to use solution that allows customers to keep track of their moving assets such as delivery vehicles with the use of GPS devices. The solution provides increased protection from theft and pilferage, contributing to a more efficient delivery system and ultimately, to business productivity.
Built on the success and experience with Fleet Management, Globe now offers other purposely-built, end-to-end M2M solutions. Fixed Asset Management is an M2M service that allows companies monitor the real-time status of their equipment’s volume and temperature threshold levels. This minimizes wastage of temperature-sensitive goods and helps save costs with the proper predictive maintenance of business resources.
Globe’s Security and Surveillance solution, on the other hand, utilizes motion and door sensors as well as panic buttons to further enhance the security of a company’s premises. Intruders or unauthorized personnel can be easily detected and response time to alarms can be made even faster.
As a managed service, Globe’s M2M clients are also guaranteed to receive proactive assistance on a 24X7 basis via a team that will monitor the status of all of the customer’s M2M components or devices. Clients will be provided reports via email, whether periodic or on-demand, and will also be given security assistance by conducting proper escalation of incidents to respective agencies.
According to Globe Business Head Jesus C. Romero, “We are proud to be able to offer this breakthrough to our customers here in the Philippines. Globe’s established ICT infrastructure will make it possible for enterprises to take advantage of everything that M2M technology has to offer.”
Francisco J. Claravall, who oversees Business Products and Services at Globe, added that a number of M2M application classes are currently in the works. “We will continue to expand our suite of M2M solutions in order to cater to the evolving needs of enterprises. Our goal with these innovative offerings is to make business processes faster, easier, safer and more profitable for our customers.”
