Tools for Business — Going into business is an attractive prospect for those who are not satisfied with living from paycheck to paycheck. While income from a business can be substantial—and can be much more compared to being an employee— there is one thing that makes would-be entrepreneurs hesitant: cost. But what if an entrepreneur can acquire essential business tools and solutions at a more affordable price? Business solutions at a cost that is easy on small to medium scale enterprises (SMEs) are now available thanks to various packages offered by Globe Business.
Well-trained account managers at Globe Stores are ready and able to offer a suite of products and services to SMEs—so they can choose the package that fits their needs and budgets.
Globe Business is the corporate arm Globe Telecom that is geared toward supporting the efforts of SMEs. SMEs form the backbone of the Philippine economy. About 99.6 percent of registered firms nationwide are SMEs.
“These SMEs employ about 69.9 percent of the labor force and contribute about 32 percent of the country’s economy. The SME sector is resilient, relentless and is rich in opportunity—it is the one economic sector that has so much potential for growth,” explained Manny Aligada, Head of Corporate & SME Segments, Globe Business.
One very good example of how committed Globe Business is in helping SMEs is its Business Starter package, which SMEs can subscribe to for only P499 a month.
Business Starter is the most affordable communications package for SMEs today with great value for money: it already includes a cellular phone handset with unlimited calls to Globe and TM networks and 300 free texts to other networks.
The Business Starter package is ideal for entrepreneurs who want to start right away but want to be careful about costs. Not all businesses need to be huge enterprises from the outset. Starting out as an SME is actually a good strategy especially for budding entrepreneurs.
“Starting a business for the first time requires learning the basics. You won’t be successful right away, and sometimes, you’ll need to start over. So the Business Starter pack age allows to you start a business, learn the basics of what works and what does not—but without exposing you to huge costs right away,” said Aligada.
As a business management tool, Business Starter package is also ideal for retail stores (clothing, jewelry, hobby shops, etc.); manufacturers of food items, garments, etc.; restaurants, salons or spas; pawnshops; and other SMEs that are starting out or are not yet in the process of expanding into multiple branches.
Business Starter package not only provides the most affordable subscription plan for SMEs–it is also supported by the wide network and high-tech capabilities of Globe Telecom, the leading telecommunications provider in the country. This assures SMEs of quality service and support as Business Starter subscribers.
