Welcome to planet local

Wherever you go next, digitally transform your business and stay ahead of the competition with our services, people and technology.

 

1. Fast multi-market growth

 

Operating offices in a new country is stressful enough without having to worry about the information technology (IT) infrastructure. Did you know that encrypting communications in some countries could see the directors end up in jail and that others won’t allow you to make any VoIP calls? In some locations you might have to wait for up to six months to get a connection or face lengthy delays and punitive charges on the import of essential equipment. 

We can help you navigate your way through the complexities of communications regulations, import rules and local installation with our extensive global team. Our solutions can help you be responsive and react quickly to business demands by seamlessly integrating new locations and acquisitions into your infrastructure.

We have over 50 years of experience helping companies across the world expand, enter new markets and launch new services. To accelerate time to market, we provide IT solutions that can bring new sites online in as little as three weeks. Our global and local teams can deploy new technologies and power your digital transformation in virtually any location.

Our global-local approach allows you to develop a consistent global strategy and execute it locally. We can help you be more responsive to business demands by rapidly bringing new sites and acquisitions online, wherever they are located.

2. Borderless collaboration

 

Communications networks have transformed how global companies can work together. Now at a moment’s notice, teams from across the world are able to work together on a common goal. Modern collaboration technologies allow you to pool the best resources wherever they are located and tap into the synergies created by different cultures working together. The different perspectives they provide can spark the innovation every company craves.

But these synergies don’t happen automatically. Although the world is shrinking, you need to overcome significant challenges including cultural differences, trust issues and time zones. We provide technology and multichannel communications systems that can help you overcome these barriers.

We can coach your users to get the most out of a mix of communications tools: ask a quick question with an IM, share screens to collaborate on a presentation, and switch to video to demonstrate a prototype. All of these tools together help build trust between co-workers and create better functioning multicultural teams – irrespective of whether they are on different continents or down the hall.

 

Webinar: empowering cross-cultural teams with digital

 

Collaboration across time zones and cultures is an inevitable consequence of the growing globalization of business and wide use of communication tools. To help understand how digital can help overcome certain cultural differences, Fons Trompenaars – one of the best-known commentators on this topic – hosted an Orange Business Services webinar.
He spoke about the three dimensions of cultural differences that affect how people use communication and collaboration tools and gave guidance to find the best ones to help reconcile these cultures.

3. Business as usual across boundaries

 

Despite the current slowdown in emerging markets, they continue to offer massive opportunities, with consumption expected to nearly triple to $30 trillion in the decade and a half to 2025. Businesses worldwide are moving to these dynamic locations to capture some of this growth.

However, ensuring the smooth running of network and IT infrastructure can be a challenge in emerging markets and remote locations. The more places you operate from, the wider the risks to your business. From one day to the next, you are at risk from: natural disasters, such as flooding and earthquakes; security breaches, such as hacking or denial of service attacks; and just simple human error.

Managing this risk requires both forward planning and constant attention. We have helped thousands of organizations in locations all over the world set up resilient infrastructure and manage it day-to-day. With unrivaled reach, we can keep you connected whether your office is a mine in Siberia or a sales outlet in Khartoum. Our award-winning service management incorporates the people, processes and tools to keep you operational through anything the world can throw at you.
