“This year, the Globe GoWiFi rollout project will be having two separate phases; first phase has a target of 478 total sites, which we have surpassed already, nationwide and by year end to have a total of 1,000 sites including but not limited to areas such as NCR namely in QC, Manila and the LGUs, Davao, Cebu, Bulacan, Cavite, Cagayan Valley, Cagayan De Oro, Nueva Vizcaya, Dumaguete, Zamboanga and now available in Boracay,” said Albert de Larrazabal, Chief Commercial Officer of Globe.

 

“Here in Globe, we believe in the power of internet access to support the nation’s state of the internet and therefore helping the businesses and families wherever they go,” added Albert. “Expect an extensive reach of our free access to WiFi to more public places by the end of this year.”, he stressed.

 

This is an ongoing expansion for fast and free internet nationwide by Globe. The company is currently working on widening its reach to more establishments, other malls, public transportation hubs, schools and hospitals.

A Wonderful Day Indeed!

Posted by Globe Live Sep 26, 2016

Last Saturday, we celebrated 917 day. Can you believe it's been a week already? Feels like it was only yesterday when we had a fun-filled day with our Globe Community Superfans and User Council members.

 

If you missed out on all the fun, don't you worry because here are some of our Community members who got to attend our 917 day celebration will tell you how it all went down.

We truly enjoyed the wonderful activities Globe had in store for us!" -Larry (User Council member)

"In the morning of September 17 (09/17), I was pleasantly surprised to have received an SMS informing me that I earned 917 reward points...and that was just the start!

 

Dropping by the Globe Iconic Store in the afternoon, participation in the numerous fun-filled and cause-worthy activities had me bringing home numerous useful items all for free.

 

A wonderful day, a wonderful experience... Thank you Globe!" -Chito (Community Superfan and UC member)

Globe ICONIC Store.PNG

 

The ICONIC store, Globe Telecom’s premiere lifestyle destination, is revolutionizing the Philippine retail and entertainment industry. With the 1st phase of the entertainment facility completed last June, the venue was able to hold successful large scale events such as Green Day’s:American Idiot play, NBA Fit, HOOQ Hangouts, and the recently concluded 917 Day celebration last Saturday.

 

Aside from being the ideal entertainment venue for events, the two massive Times Square-like LED walls provide live video feed and on-ground entertainment. Informative and engaging videos such as short clips by Globe Studios and lifestyle ambient visuals are showed daily. Every 7:30 P.M., people are also treated to a lights and sounds show.

From 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., the ICONIC store transforms into a carnival wonderland with the Omega Claw game which uses augmented reality and face detection technology to capture the faces of anyone near the venue through live feed cameras. The pictures are then posted in the country’s largest interactive outdoor LED billboard with the tagline “You’ve been clawed.” People are encouraged to pose for the camera as they are seen by spectators around. This fun, unique and interactive technology will be refreshed regularly to give BGC Central Amphitheatre visitors something to look forward to.

Anyone who is within the area of the Globe ICONIC Store can, likewise, connect to the Globe ICONIC WiFi service to experience ultra-fast Internet connection speeds of up to 100 Mbps. They can also listen to the audio of the videos being played on the outdoor LED screens through Globe Soundplay App, an audio streaming app that lets you listen to the videos playing in the ICONIC store through your own smartphone. When connected to the Globe ICONIC WiFi, just open the app to stream high-quality real-time audio right from your smartphone. This innovation lets you avoid unnecessary noise pollution within the area, allowing you to privately listen to the Globe Iconic outdoor LED screens’ video contents.

 

“The ICONIC store is set to be a premiere venue that will once again change the retail experience with multi-faceted store built to house the latest trends and live entertainment. Customers can experience our latest products interactively, explore new content with our upcoming chroma studio and museum. And outdoors, we continue interaction with our customers through features and activities like Globe SoundPlay and Omega Claw, truly making the ICONIC store a one-of-a-kind venue in the Philippines.” says Globe Stores and Retail Transformation Head, Joe Caliro.

 

Phase 2 will feature the complete Globe ICONIC Store with a glass bridge that connects two stores on both ends. Also within the store, is a chroma studio for recording and shooting videos that partners and customers can use, view and enjoy. The ICONIC store is set to open by the end of the year.

Start of a Journey with Globe!

 

Last August 19, Globe welcomed its first batch of User Council members, a subset of Globe Community at the Radiate Hall of The Globe Tower.

 

The kickoff was themed “Journey to Wonderful” as the members – actual Globe customers – are set to embark on a design-oriented journey to create wonderful experiences around products and services of Globe.

 

In keeping with the theme, the Radiate Hall was transformed into a posh VIP airport lounge, complemented with a boarding gate, a check-in counter and a section for Immigration and Customs set up just outside the makeshift VIP lounge.

Checking In At Wonderful

 

Attendees, User Council members and Globe employees alike were asked to check in to get their “boarding pass,” and then get clearance from the “Immigration Officers” by participating in a design activity. Showcased were three types of design activities: usability testing, card sorting and participative design, which were intended to put the “passengers” up to speed on the types of activities that will be done in the future with the User Council.

 

Miggy Dela Cruz, Head of Customer Experience Design, did the honor of opening the program with a talk about “treating people right to create a Globe of good.” The team’s mantra revolved around allowing Globe to interact seamlessly with its customers, both internal and external, and operate as one organization.

Love Letters from Our Customers

 

The main highlight of the program was a special segment that featured love letters written by the members themselves days before the event. Imagining Globe as their significant other, the members were asked to write a letter narrating their relationship with Globe, from the time they “met” (brand discovery) up until their current “relationship status.”

 

In turn, we received 28 letters that captivated the hearts of several Ka-Globe who had the privilege of pre-reading them, including the Chief Customer Experience Officer herself, Ms. Beck Eclipse. So enthralled was the OSMCE Head by all the letters that she requested for all of them to be responded to with equal intensity!

 

During the event, Ms. Beck chose to read a couple of letters from the members on stage. One came from Neil Goco, Jr., a bright young student, telco geek and active postpaid subscriber.

 

Neil's Letter.png

The other one came from Gat Bati whose letter Ms. Beck personally responded to.

The Prize of Loving Globe

 

Being the lucky letter senders, Neil and Gat received Php1,000 worth of Globe Rewards points each. Meanwhile, all letter senders received Tattoo pocket WiFi sticks plus their choice of free digital content subscription among HOOQ, NBA, Spotify and Disney.

 

Surprises kept coming as Globe got to know the guests better. One member, Chito Reyes, was identified as a tenured customer. Being the most loyal subscriber in the group (22 years!), Globe delighted him by upgrading his account to a Platinum membership. He was personally welcomed by Faye Matus of Globe Platinum and immediately assigned with a Relationship Manager.

 

Another member, Carlo Saplan, happened to mention The Chainsmokers in his letter and, for that alone, received a VIP ticket to The Chainsmokers concert happening that same night!

Love Is All Around

 

All in all, the kickoff was a successful event. That, plus the post-event feedback received from the members, do seal a delightful partnership between Globe and the customers in the realm of experience design.

 

“The feeling of being able to contribute to innovation in one of the country’s leading companies is different. It’s an honor.”

 

“I’m really thrilled to be part of the User council. Getting to test and to try new products/services that Globe is working on during their early phases is a privilege.”

 

“Thank you for the wonderful time and evening. It was time well spent and worth the experience.”

 

“Thank you Globe User Council and to CXD, looking forward to all your activities.”

 

“Go Design Research! Expect the proactivity from us!”

 

About the Globe User Council

 

The Globe User Council is a program under Globe Community. Its main objective is to move Globe’s experience design team closer to the customers and create an ecosystem where designers and customers can build user experiences and interfaces together.

 

User Council members are all true and current Globe customers – a blend of loyal and new postpaid, prepaid and broadband subscribers who have been explicitly invited to participate in design sessions or test actual design prototypes with Globe’s resident UX and UI designers.
