Life-Saving Equipment in the fight against COVID-19

In our continued support for the overburdened healthcare sector, we provided patient monitors and PPEs to the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences in Islamabad, Jinnah Postgraduate Medical College in Karachi, and Nishtar Hospital in Multan. This initiative is expected to provide comprehensive care to more than 3000 COVID-19 patients in isolation wards.

Jazz Business enters the Agriculture Sector for the first time!

The agriculture sector of Pakistan is one of the biggest contributors to the GDP. Yet this sector is far from being automated and digitalized. Jazz Business penetrated this sector for the first time by providing M2M services to Maxim Agri – including 2000 franchisees, 18,000 commercial farmers, and 100+ sales personnel nationwide. The solutions aim to streamline and digitize Maxim’s value chain. This will enable the company to ensure end-to-end automation of its workforce as well as workflows nationwide.

Trials for Jazz Cloud begin!

In line with the Digital Pakistan initiative, last year Jazz Business signed a partnership with Vmware, the world’s leading innovator in enterprise software to provide cloud services for businesses in Pakistan. While Jazz Cloud services are all set for launch, in alignment with the customer-obsessed value; Jazz Business opted for a user-centric approach by introducing user trials to select customers across various industries. This has been an insightful experience in helping the department capture the customer’s experience and feedback while gauging the customer need better and fine-tuning the end product even more! Once the Jazz Cloud pilot concludes, Jazz Business will be launching Cloud as an infrastructure tool and will continue to expand the services provided. This is one of the most exciting additions to the Jazz Business product portfolio!
