AS a next step to Maxis and Microsoft’s partnership, both companies will be collaborating to modernise the digital workforce for increased productivity, efficiency, and convenience.
Under the partnership, Maxis has introduced its Digital Workspace solutions as part of its expanding Maxis Business suite of services and solutions.
This marks the first in the market to offer an all-inclusive managed laptop solution with built-in data connectivity from Maxis, it claimed in a statement.
This means businesses will be able to set up their office securely from anywhere they are and be supported by Microsoft Office 365 and other leading software solutions in a bundled package.
“Through our Digital Workspace solution, our goal is to equip our customers with the best tools and connectivity so they can be in control of their business growth in an increasingly cloud-driven environment,” Paul McManus, chief enterprise business officer, Maxis
“Our partnership with Microsoft has played a key role in accelerating Maxis’ ambition towards becoming Malaysia’s leading converged solutions provider and a preferred technology partner for SMEs and Enterprises.”
K Raman, managing director of Microsoft Malaysia, said that businesses in Malaysia are adapting to massive changes in the way work gets done.
“Mobility is a given, remote work is on the rise, and security remains a top priority. With businesses accelerating their digital transformation, we are pleased to strengthen our partnership with Maxis, with its appointment as the first Malaysian telco to be an authorised device reseller for [Microsoft] Surface,” he added.
“Together with Maxis, we look forward to further empowering our customers to be more connected, mobile and productive.”
Maxis Digital Workspace was introduced to boost the productivity of customers, who can enjoy lower total ownership cost by adopting an all-inclusive suite of digital work tools with built-in data connectivity on an affordable monthly subscription fee.
Maxis said users will receive end-to-end support from Maxis from deployment right up to maintenance, so they can focus on achieving their business goals.
Together with Microsoft Office 365, employees will be able to benefit from cloud productivity and Microsoft Teams collaboration tools, complete with multi-layered security features so that company data remains safe, Maxis said.
All of this is powered by Maxis 4G LTE network, enabling an always-on connectivity for remote working and flexibility of sharable data pool among devices with their Maxis Business Postpaid.
Customers who sign up for the Maxis Digital Workspace can opt for Microsoft Surface devices with customisation of these devices for larger corporate orders based on their usage needs.
Maxis and Microsoft’s partnership which began a year ago, has quickly progressed over the months. Maxis is a Microsoft Gold-Certified Partner that delivers industry leading cloud technology to customers within specialised areas of business.
Maxis also strengthened its technical workforce with Microsoft specialists through the acqui-hire of Infrastructure Consulting & Managed Services (ICMS).
