Philippine Telegraph and Telephone Corp. (PT&T) is launching a new product to cater to the droves of workers forced to work from home amid the global pandemic.
PT&T said it had partnered with United States-based Status Pros, which provides tools for companies to manage their workforce remotely.
“As a telco and IT company, PT&T is one with the industry in fully embracing this digital transformation of work,” James Velasquez, president and CEO of PT&T, said in a statement.
“But we must emphasize that this is not a pivot to circumvent the realities of the current situation, rather, the pandemic merely accelerated what some are already into: working from anywhere,” he added.
Status Pros sees a market in the Philippines for its virtual desktop products.
“We are passionate about enabling and empowering our customers to unlock tremendous value with the right technology and reliable connectivity and network services—which is at the core of PT&T’s products and mission,” Status Pros president Lucas Wellman said in the same statement.
