PLDT SME Nation treats SMEs to MINI Cooper showcase

CLASSICISM, PERFORMANCE AND SPEED packed in small packages was the theme of “Meet a Classic”, the event showcasing PLDT SME Nation business solutions together with MINI Coopers to small-and-medium entrepreneurs (SME) from the GMM South-West. The celebration, held at the MINI Cooper showroom in Taguig, brought together classic and new models of Mini Coopers; as well as high-tech gadgets from PLDT SME Nation—all for the enjoyment of SMEs in attendance.

“PLDT SME Nation offers solutions that are in sync with the modern lifestyles of SMEs today. For example, we are bundling fast Internet connectivity with Apple Macs of the PLDT MyDSL Biz. More than anything, this event is about taking time to relax and have a great time with our partner SMEs. In this gathering, we combine the thrills of high-speed, advanced technology and classic, high-performance automobiles,” says PLDT SME Nation Vice President and Head Kat Luna-Abelarde.

The 450-sqm area of the MINI showroom was packed with SMEs from all over Metro Manila., an exclusive club of MINI Cooper owners, were also present in the event displaying their own MINI Coopers. Everyone was greatly impressed by the MINI showroom’s impressive interiors and the different models of MINIs that owners brought to the event. Guests were also treated to a night of delectable cocktails.

“We know that running a business is hard work and allotting some leisure time for one’s self is essential for SMEs, that’s why we hold appreciation events such as this to give our clients the relaxation and break they need,” says PLDT SME Nation Business Head Carla Tabuena.

The PLDT MyDSL Biz offers SMEs high-speed Internet access through various packages suited to business in all stages of growth, from start-ups to established ones. Connectivity speeds offered by PLDT MyDSL Biz range from the Small Biz Lite packages of 3.5Mbps to the Powerpack C packages of 8Mbps. Aside from fast connectivity, the PLDT MyDSL Biz now comes fully loaded with Apple Macbooks and iMacs and also comes bundled with the PLDT BizBox, an all-in-one modem and Wi-Fi router.

Also highlighted during the event was the PLDT FASTrack, a remote monitoring and tracking service that bundles a high-tech navigation software with GPS-enabled pocket-sized device. The PLDT FASTrack service enables SMES to track, monitor and locate field agents in transit, as well as assets and goods during deliveries.

PLDT FASTrack is valuable for businesses engaged in the retail, delivery, security, and similar industries that rely mostly on security of shipments and on-the-road agent efficiency. The FASTrack is also recommended for people who own MINI Coopers as it can help secure their cars against theft.
