Wilcon Depot has hired Converge ICT Solutions Inc. For a personalized and secure internet service.
Converge ICT will provide the construction supply and home improvement retailer with Direct Internet Access (DIA) to ensure the smooth flow of operations for Wilcon Depot.
DIA will also provide a well-coordinated operational process of virtual video conferencing between various departments, end-to-end data sharing, and coordinated logistical communication to ensure continued business productivity.
“IT infrastructure is very important to any growing company. Especially for us as a retailer, we need data very quickly. We need to re-integrate data into our head office. And we need data to be consistent and available to our teams so we can make the right decisions. Operationally We can’t afford it, and we can’t run our systems offline,” said Lauren Bello-Cincushan, president and CEO of Wilcon Depot.
For the majority of its subsidiaries, Wilcon Depot is currently subscribed to iBiz’s Converge product, a pure fiber internet plan created to provide businesses with high-quality communications at an affordable cost. As the company evolved and expanded with the growing need for more bandwidth, it moved from iBiz to FlexiBIZ – a business-class connectivity solution designed for maximum efficiency during peak business hours during the day.
“We are delighted to be Wilcon Depot’s long-time partner in connectivity. Helping them maintain their position as a leading supplier of building materials and home improvement in the Philippines despite the challenges of the pandemic,” said Converge Chief Operating Officer Jesus Romero. Aligned with our belief in accessibility, innovation and growth.
“We are proud to be their continued partner in providing solutions to every Filipino home as they continue to expand nationwide. Converge remains committed to supporting businesses as they adapt to new operating models to improve efficiency and increase productivity.”
