5 Key Takeaways to Help Business Foster in New Normal with SKYBIZ and Microsoft

SKYBIZ, the business solutions arm of SKY Cable Corporation, partners with Microsoft's Crayon Software Experts Philippines, Inc. to help entrepreneurs and enterprise owners shift and grow amid today's digital age of doing business as it conducted a special webinar event, showcasing the features of the all-in-one business suite Microsoft 365.

Alongside the introduction and demonstration on how to use Microsoft 365 to help in aiding business operations in today's times, the event, in line with SKYBIZ's ongoing Grow Together campaign, shared business tips and factors to consider to sustain work progress and productivity.

Here are some key takeaways from the webinar hosted by SKYBIZ and Crayon Software Experts Philippines, Inc. that would help small, medium, and large enterprises grow their ventures to new heights in today's age of digital transformation:

1) Business alteration and reset

Indeed the pandemic has changed our way of living, including how we do business.

According to Crayon Philippines' solutions architect Danica Francisco, many businesses are finding ways to make their businesses thrive amid these uncertain times, ushering the new normal in how we communicate and transact with our clientele.

"We've seen how businesses changed and shifted focus on making their ventures thrive. I'm not only talking about the large enterprises, even the small businesses. Here, we could see the resiliency of these businesses, some didn't make it, but others thrived in today's times," Francisco shared.

Shifting to digital could be beneficial for many business owners in order to cope with the ongoing new normal set-up and make operations accessible and run more smoothly.

2) People are the driving force behind progress

Despite the ongoing shift in today's digital transformation, people are still pivotal in driving success for all businesses.

With this in mind, companies and smaller businesses alike should continue addressing the needs of their employees to establish trust and bolster rapport in boosting work productivity.

Plus, considering a more work-friendly set-up for workers, including the implementations of work-from-home or hybrid arrangements, would be beneficial in promoting work productivity and safety.

"It is important for organizations and companies to address their current needs. We know that it is difficult to go to work due to these uncertain times with COVID affecting the transport sector. We need to think of how we can help our people to stay motivated at work," Francisco added.

3) Real-time collaboration

One of the worries of business owners is how flexible working set-ups would hamper real-time collaboration, with employees now working apart from one another to maintain their safety.

But with the help of modern technology, including the Microsoft 365 business suite, businesses can run smoothly as usual with real-time collaboration applications that would help them interact with one another and continue doing their work together virtually.

Another vital factor to note in virtual real-time collaboration is to introduce a user-friendly interface so all employees, whether tech-savvy or not, can seamlessly conduct business activities without the worry of being left behind.

4) Strengthening digital security

Going digital may also introduce new risks, including cyber threats that would potentially affect one's business.

From stealing personal information to breaching bank funds, investing in additional digital security measures is key to protecting all crucial data from hackers and other digital perpetrators alike.

5) Taking note of costs

Shifting to digital may also be heavy on the pockets of most businesses.

With costs in the equation, it is apt to find an all-in-one solution to cut costs while enjoying the benefits of virtual real-time collaboration and digital security.

This is where Microsoft 365 enters, providing a business suite for collaborating through its Teams app with access to all of the essential Microsoft Office applications, which is helpful in documenting and presenting their day-to-day progress.

Plus, its security features also ensure companies and business ventures that their vital information is locked in within their system to avoid potential digital threats, whether on mobile or on their computers.

Together with SKYBIZ' reliable internet connectivity, users can fully utilize Microsoft 365 and integrate it in their day-to-day activities at ease.

Upon subscribing to SKYBIZ's BIZBB PRO Fiber, it comes with speeds of up to 200 Mbps and free access to Microsoft 365, plus gift vouchers from Grab or ABS-CBN Dash to help in sustaining business growth in today's digital age.

Business owners can also subscribe to SKYBIZ's BIZTastic Bundeals, which also come with fiber business internet connectivity, plus access to Microsoft 365 and a free ABS-CBN Dash voucher. Promo is extended until June 30, 2022.

Cignal and TV5 Mark Broadcast Milestones with Historic UAAP Season 84 Men’s Basketball Finals

The recently concluded UAAP Season 84 men's basketball final game was the most talked about sporting event last week following the UP Fighting Maroons’ historic win over the seemingly invincible Ateneo Blue Eagles squad, which ended UP’s 36-year championship drought. 

UAAP broadcast partner Cignal also marked its own milestones, with the UAAP finals series reaching millions of Filipinos via free-to-air channel TV5, while Cignal’s UAAP Varsity Channel leads the charge for OTT via the Cignal Play App, with record-breaking numbers as well.

Sports fans of all ages who thronged the Mall of Asia for the intercollegiate basketball crown match between Ateneo and UP saw a heart-stopping game that was literally settled in the final seconds of Game 3. On TV5, the game registered an average minute rating (AMR) of 2.8% (10.45 SHR) or over 4 million audience reach and was the network’s highest rated program on May 13. The live airing AMR peaked at 5.5% during the final minutes of the game.

Game 3 of the UAAP S84 men’s basketball finals was the highest rated program on TV5 in the last three weeks, lifting the ratings up by 13% versus the previous weekday (May 6). On average, 1.3 million viewers tuned in every minute of the UAAP Finals Game 3 on TV5.

For OTT Streaming on Cignal Play, Game 3 also garnered over 333,000 site and app visits, with its peak at 30,000 concurrent users for the final minutes of the game, the highest traffic numbers for a live finals match since the app was launched. The UAAP Varsity Channel remains to be a pillar driver of paid subscriptions for the app, which continues with the ongoing coverage of UAAP Volleyball, and the Cheerdance Competition happening this Sunday, May 22.

Social media views and engagement were also remarkably boosted by their UAAP content, scoring over 700,000 YouTube views for the platform’s UAAP content.
