Telecommunications service provider Claro and the Puerto Rico Manufacturers Association signed a collaborative agreement Tuesday that will facilitate exchanging information on new technologies specially designed to increase the business sector’s productivity.
Through the partnership, Claro will provide private cloud services to the trade group, which in turn will be able to manage its business applications through secure virtual servers based on the CloudSystems platform. The infrastructure will also allow the PRMA to manage its applications and establish a backup information plan to maintain business continuity.
Claro will provide the PRMA the necessary broadband speed to guarantee secure and uninterrupted connections while managing their cloud-based applications, Claro President Enrique Ortiz de Montellano said.
“We’re honored to join the PRMA in a common cause; to promote the island’s economic development by supporting the enterprise segment with advanced services and products that support productivity, performance and growth,” Ortiz de Montellano said. “Through this agreement we’ll also upgrade all of the PRMA’s telecom services to the most advanced in our extensive product portfolio to position it at the forefront with cutting-edge technology. These technologies will also be available to all PRMA members.”
As part of the agreement, Claro will be able to make presentations at PRMA activities to familiarize the business community about the telecom tools available that maximize performance and productivity, he said.
“The PRMA is responsible for identifying and pursuing the necessary strategies that support the use, education and advancement of tech platforms in Puerto Rico so they serve as pillars and structures for new emerging industrial models, in line with innovation trends, intellectual capital development and sustainability,” said PRMA President Waleska Rivera.
“With this agreement we seek to be at the forefront of technology and innovation to provide excellent service to our partners in particular, and Puerto Rico in general,” she said. “Thanks to Claro, we now have the tools that will facilitate effective communication with our partners.”
Aside from providing the CloudSystems plaform, Claro will provide the PRMA with mobile phone services, broadband, PRI connection, fixed Internet and cloud computing with access to Microsoft applications, including Office 365. Claro also becomes the technology provider of the PRMA’s special events, trainings, seminars and teleconferences.
