PLDT-SME Nation launches Negosyo Boost for SMEs

Fighting the current economic slowdown won’t be easy, but we need to start somewhere. This is what PLDT-SME Nation seem to have in mind when it launches its latest project to help SMEs get their feet wet in information technology. It’s called Negosyo Boost.

It’s a given that companies need to adopt information technology in order to compete with this highly competitive business arena and PLDT-SME Nation is providing the tools and arsenals to businesses particularly the SMEs to compete and be prepared for bigger things to come.

“Today, it is a must for business owners to embrace information technology and take advantage of the benefits it can bring, most especially for small and medium size entrepreneurs”, says PLDT-SME Nation Vice president and Head Kat Luna-Abelarde.

Abelarde further explains that Negosyo Boost conveniently bundles both broadband connectivity and business-enabling hardware devices such as netbooks and printers into one package enabling SMEs to be more competitive.

PLDT-SME Nation’s Negosyo Boost comes in three packages – Negosyo Launch, Negosyo Advance, and Negosyo on the Go. The details of the packages are as follows:

Negosyo Launch Package components:
– Broadband internet – myDSL Biz
– Voice Biz
– Netbook
– Hewlett Packard 3-in-1 printer

* Monthly recurring fee = P3,000 * Non-recurring fee = P2,000

Negosyo Advance Package components:
– Broadband internet – myDSL Biz
– Mobile internet – WeRoam
– Netbook
– Hewlett Packard 3-in-1 printer

* Monthly recurring fee = P3,000 * Non-recurring fee = P2,000

Negosyo On-the-go Package components:
– Mobile internet – WeRoam
– Mobile Landline – (2 units) PLDT Landline Plus
– Netbook

* Monthly recurring fee = P3,000 * Non-recurring fee = P2,000

Booster Package A—–Add P400 monthly for MSI Wind U100LX Netbook
Booster Package B—–Add P800 monthly for HP Mini 1100 Netbook

Obviously, the intention of PLDT-SME Nation is to assist SMEs and startups implement technology into their business strategy. Getting businesses to at least start with email, web browsing for research, proposal creation, simple accounting with built-in spreadsheet program, marketing presentations and others will be a great advantage over the competition who choses not to have technology on their side.

The current offering is simply the tip of the iceberg. Given the the PLDT SME Nation has long been at the forefront in the advocacy of entrepreneurship in the country, I am sure more offerings will be available to SMEs soon. But right now, I am not in liberty to divulge them.

Just trust me, expect more from PLDT SME Nation very soon. God Bless us all!
