PLDT Enterprise, the B2B arm of the largest integrated telecommunications company in the Philippines PLDT, and Cloudstaff Modern Workforce, one of the Philippine's leading business outsourcing providers, continue to strengthen their ongoing partnership with the signing of a new three-year service extension agreement to further drive innovation and enhance business productivity.

The latest deal fortifies the longstanding partnership between Cloudstaff and PLDT Enterprise as the outsourcing leader extended its decade long association with Google Workspace, renewing licenses for its 3000+ staff spread across the Philippines.

"We would like to express our utmost gratitude to Cloudstaff Modern Workforce for their continued trust in us after all these years. Likewise, we at PLDT Enterprise convey our unbreakable commitment in helping their business grow and become even more successful with our end-to-end digital services," said Jovy Hernandez, ePLDT president and CEO and SVP and head for PLDT and Smart Enterprise Business Groups.

Cloudstaff's long association with the PLDT Group has organically evolved throughout the partnership, originally starting as a telecom provider, before transforming into a fully-fledged solutions partner.

PLDT has previously provided Cloudstaff internet connectivity through PLDT ClarkTel and wireless mobile plans via its wireless arm Smart Communications. Today, PLDT Enterprise now supplies Cloudstaff with a series of world class digital solutions including Smart Bizload and Messaging Suite, Google Workspace, and Smart 5G Rocket WiFi through its ICT arm ePLDT to further boost Cloudstaff's operations and productivity.

Cloudstaff CEO Lloyd Ernst said the secret to the partnership's ongoing success and longevity stems from the agile and adaptable way in which both organizations approach their operations.

"The Cloudstaff-PLDT relationship is a powerful combination," Ernst said. "For us to succeed in a competitive and ever changing global market, we need a partner that is both reliable and adaptable, and never have we seen these qualities shine through more than in the way PLDT has provided a way forward throughout the global Covid-19 pandemic."

"For over 10 years now, Cloudstaff has been striving to change the way the world approaches outsourcing through the use of technology driven solutions and Google and PLDT have been there with us every step of the way," Ernst added.

Likewise, Chito Franco, PLDT ClarkTel president, also expressed the PLDT Group's enthusiasm for providing Cloudstaff with the leading digital solutions needed for conducting business on the global stage.

"For the last 10 years, we at the PLDT Group have continuously strived to understand the growing requirements of Cloudstaff for us to provide the most suitable services that will help them reach more customers with their next-generation outsourcing platform. And today, we fortify that commitment especially as we help digitally transform its business," said Franco.

For Cloudstaff's head network and security engineer Arvin Cubacub, the extension of the partnership means accelerating Cloudstaff's rapid growth.

"Continuing to have PLDT onboard providing our Google Workspace requirements over the course of the next three years is a key milestone for us. It gives us the confidence we need to grow and expand our services into new global markets, and provides our customers with one of the world's most versatile and secure platforms, fully backed by PLDT's unwavering support," he concluded.
