MAXIS Bhd said it has partnered with Microsoft Corp to launch a service that incorporates Office 365 into the MaxisONE Business solutions suite, aimed at small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
The MaxisONE Business, launched last September, is the all-in-one Internet plan for businesses that comes with unlimited talk and text, Internet access, business-grade services and mobility solutions.
The incorporation of Office 365 into the solution means that customers also get installed Office applications on PCs, tablets and smartphones, one terabyte of cloud storage and a host of other value-added services, Maxis said in a statement.
MaxisONE Business with Office 365 for SMEs is the first of many more solutions in partnership with Microsoft to come, Maxis said in its statement.
“The reality of today’s business environment is that customers need the freedom to work from anywhere,” said Shanti Jusnita Johari, head of Enterprise Marketing and Mobility at Maxis.
“What MaxisONE Business with Office 365 essentially does is offers new ways of working anywhere and on the go, through an opex (operating expenditure) model that will allow businesses to operate more efficiently through collaboration,” she added.
Maxis said the benefits of using MaxisONE Business with Office 365 include:
- 24/7 solution support: Customers have access to experts 24 hours, seven days a week, for any subscription, technical, or even installation issue;
- Single point of contact: Customers will receive only a single bill from Maxis, which will be their one and only point of contact; and
- Monthly payments: Pay only monthly subscriptions, with no upfront investment costs.
“People want to have the flexibility as to where and when they work – and Microsoft’s Office 365 solutions for businesses enables your team to work together anywhere, with the same familiar experience across PCs, tablets, and mobile devices,” said Azizah Ali, general manager, Small and Midmarket Solutions and Partners (SMSP), Microsoft Malaysia.
