Oil company Phoenix Petroleum Philippines, Inc. (PNX) has adopted G Suite, through Globe Business, to facilitate communication in their growing business.
Since the establishment of its first station in Davao in 2005, PNX has expanded nationwide to build a wide network of retail stations and commercial and industrial clients. Its business covers the trading of refined petroleum products and lubricants to retail and commercial channels, operation of oil depots, storage, and transport services. Its integrated logistic services include hauling and into-plane services of Jet-A1 fuels to airports and airlines, and refuelling of aircraft in key cities.
"We are a growing company, making it necessary for us to acquire a simple yet powerful office tool that would enable easier communication and collaboration among our different departments," said Alfred Reyes, Assistant Vice President for IT of PNX, in a press release.
G Suite is powered by Google Cloud, and includes Google applications such as Gmail, Docs, Drive, and Calendar. It also provides a 30GB storage of e-mail per user, advanced filtering, fast message search, integrated text, voice, and multi-person video chat.
Besides that, PNX employees can create and share project website and intranet pages without any programming skills or technical support through Google Sites,and manage business critical information with Google Vault retention, archiving, and eDiscovery tool.
"Through G Suite, we are able to help PNX to increase productivity, reduce information technology cost by eliminating the need to purchase and maintain servers, as well as keep their most important corporate data safe," said Mike Frausing, Globe Senior Advisor for Enterprise and IT Enabled Services Group.
