Managing mobility in a diverse region
Few markets can match Asia-Pacific in terms of its rapid expansion and sheer commercial diversity. The region includes advanced economies such as Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand - similar to those of Western Europe and the USA. It also includes takes in the less developed economies of Oceania - plus China and India, two of the world's fastest-growing markets.
Meeting the challenges you face
The high level of satisfaction with our solutions has been confirmed in a survey by independent analysts Ovum - identifying us as the market-leading provider of managed mobility services in the Asia-Pacific sector. Here's how we're helping customers meet their key business requirements.
Multi-national organisations throughout the Asia-Pacific region are keen to cut expenditure while improving efficiency. However, 67% couldn't forecast their global telecoms spend accurately. In a fragmented market, factors like multiple contracts and suppliers, a range of administrative processes and increasing numbers of mobile workers make this difficult to resolve.
Our solution is to make things simple. We provide a complete overview of the global communications infrastructure for both fixed and mobile telephony. This gives businesses control over costs, logistics and security. And equips them to stay agile and competitive in a fast-changing world.
Whether it's to improve work/life balance, boost productivity or reduce the need for business travel, employers across the region are facing pressure to implement flexible working practices. But many perceive a number of barriers to this -- such as the potential costs and time involved, or worries about blurring the boundaries between life in and out of work.
We can help -- with products, processes and support that can increase competitiveness and efficiencies through remote working.
If companies enable employees to work remotely, how can they access their network and share data without compromising security?
