Smart partners with Vodafone for new services
MANILA, Philippines—Dominant mobile network Smart Communications Inc. has partnered with European telecom giant Vodafone for the development of new and innovative services for the Philippine market.
Smart announced on Tuesday that the partnership would develop a strategy for the company’s rollout of its long-term evolution of high-speed broadband Internet network in the country with the help of Vodafone.
The deal also gives Smart access to Vodafone’s deep pool of knowledge and resources, including state-of-the-art technology and best practices in the areas of cross-border roaming, marketing and customer value management.
“We are proud to be the preferred partner of Vodafone in the Philippines, as we work together to meet the growing demand among multinational businesses for sophisticated voice, data and roaming solutions within and beyond the Asia-Pacific region,” Smart International and Carrier Business Division head Alex Caeg said.
Vodafone officials were in Manila last January for a series of training workshops with Smart employees. Vodafone’s online team conducted the training with Smart’s senior management and online customer management team, among others, as participants.
