While I was away Telecom announced a new host of options for SMEs. Basically it seems that Telecom have identified that SMEs in New Zealand are time-constrained and one of the things that gets overlooked in their busy-ness is a complete set of web presences.
To this end they’ve partnered with a bunch of providers around the world in an effort to bring affordable and easy solutions for SMEs.
Some of the stuff they’re doing includes;
- Business specific broadband (higher caps and better support)
- Business specific hardware (modems with more filtering options)
- Web design and hosting (a simple one-stop-shop for domain name registration, site design and hosting
Fact is that most SMEs are Telecom customers, and most could benefit from some of these tools – the attractiveness of a single-bill ICT relationship is pretty compelling.
Yet to come, according to the Telecom press release, is backup, storage and business tool software offerings – all delivered via SaaS – nice!
