Local cloud services pioneer IP Converge Data Services, Inc. (IPC) opened its digital transformation seminar series this year with an insightful discourse on how productivity applications are changing the workplace for the better. Dubbed as Business over Beers, the first of IPC’s #DiscoverDigital series for 2018 was recently held at ASPACE Greenbelt, Makati.
The event gathered more than 40 business representatives whose core competencies range from Information Technology, Media, Finance, General Trade and Professional Services. The discussion was about how cloud-based solutions like Google Maps, Google Chrome and Chrome devices and G Suite can help boost office productivity, communication and collaboration.
Google works far more than just its search engine and email feature, such as Google Maps aiding in brand awareness and market research. It helps increase the business’ visibility online by managing its search ranking, as well as present data, locate mobile teams in real-time, and see how visitors use the maps’ functionalities.
Google Chrome provides organizations with advanced tools for a fast and secure web browsing experience, while its Chrome devices are managed and configured in the cloud and can take different forms from a conventional laptop, to a small box that plugs into any modern monitor, to a tiny device that plugs directly into an HDMI port on a screen. On the other hand, G Suite is a set of intelligent apps that can help employees share and work on documents at the same time, input data and create presentations, as well as interact with other employees.
“In the spirit of game changing, we came up with this live sitcom-type demo to show clients that, just like veering away from the usual events with product-centric slide presentations, there is a different and better way of getting work done faster, smarter, and easier,” IPC Marketing and Digital Innovation Director Niño Valmonte emphasized. “Optimum workplace productivity and operational efficiency is possible through Google’s G Suite, Maps API and various Chrome devices.”
With this activity, IPC invited businesses for a collaboration to use applications from Google Cloud and see how these can improve the business. IPC’s #DiscoverDigital campaign is composed of various activities that share the latest innovations, trends, and best practices that are shaping the world of business IT addressed to empower Filipino enterprises and organizations, whether large or SMEs to keep ahead with the digital changes of the times.
