February 25: Ncell has collaborated with Microsoft Corporation to provide Microsoft’s productivity and communications solutions, cloud resources and online meeting tools, the company said in a statement.
Ncell announced its collaboration with Microsoft Corporation for Microsoft Tier 1 Cloud Service Provider (CSP) amidst a special gathering attended by over 250 corporate clients from various banks, businesses and officials of NGO/INGOs in early February.
Under this partnership, Ncell will be focusing to provide three major products—Office 365 (O365), Azure and Teams to Nepali businesses.
Microsoft’s O365 is a cloud-based service that facilitates efficiency and helps everyone in an organization to be more productive, and communicate more effectively. The Office 365 suite makes performing essential tasks like finding information, sharing knowledge, communicating with colleagues, processing data, and planning and organization faster and more straightforward, reducing time spent on administrative tasks and leaving businesses more time to create, innovate, and move the business forward, the statement said.
“While, Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing service for building, testing, deploying, and managing applications and services through Microsoft-managed data centres. IT Teams of companies using this service will have the freedom to build, manage, and deploy application on a massive, global network using their favourite tools and frameworks.”
Likewise, Microsoft Teams is another innovative service, according to Ncell. This is a unified communication and collaboration platform that combines persistent workplace chat, video meetings, file storage (including collaboration on files), and application integration. Teams provides a fully decked out document storage, chat and online meeting environment.
Welcoming the guests, Andy Chong, CEO of Ncell, said, “The collaboration landscape is changing rapidly. No longer confined to office buildings, the modern workspace allows people to meet, collaborate, and stay connected across organizational boundaries. Ncell and Microsoft are combining resources and experience to focus on the fast-growing collaboration arena, which is a strategic market for both companies.”
“We have collaborated with Ncell to provide our cloud service directly to customers in Nepal,” said Anh Pham, chief partner officer for South Asia at Microsoft. “In the initial phase, we will be providing the cloud service to clients including small and medium enterprise and businesses of the country. We believe that the collaboration contributes towards development of Nepal’s digital ecosystem, also providing our services as value added services.”
Through this strategic relationship, customers will benefit from Ncell’s advanced network services and Microsoft’s leadership in software technologies to deliver innovative new collaboration and communication solutions that enhance employee productivity. These new tools will empower companies, teams and individuals to collaborate in real time from various devices using multiple communications channels.
Ncell said it is making these innovative services of Microsoft available for Nepali enterprises as part of its commitment under Ncell for Business (N4B) to deliver world class services and provide opportunities to businesses large and small to reach their potential and achieve goals from better connectivity and digitisation.
