They boost investment and employment, and drive innovation,” Salvador Anglada, Chief Business Officer, Etisalat, said. “In the UAE, SMBs account for 92 percent of all businesses. We believe that the UAE’s SMB sector has huge growth potential. Our efforts at Etisalat are dedicated to help empower these businesses tap the opportunities available to them. We are extending our new Business Quick Start offering to SMBs to meet their communication, IT and security needs through a single bundled package. Our next suite of enhanced Business in a Box solution will include more cost-effective integrated modular offerings to cater needs of SMBs, helping them save big in the long term.”

As well as the Business Quick Start bundle, business customers can choose several add-ons including fixed and mobile plans such as Business Ultimate, Business DataShare and Business Traveller Packs.

The new all-in-one bundle is part of our earnest effort to help our SMB customers grow, allowing them to scale and expand as their ICT needs and organisations evolve. It delivers everything that an SMB needs from one service provider.”
