Manila, Philippines
-- Globe, through its corporate arm Globe Business, provides communication tools that bring cost efficiency to Silicon Valley, which caters to the IT needs of consumers. As the telecommunications partner of Silicon Valley, Globe Business provides the company with Globe mobile postpaid lines as well as wired direct lines and broadband internet connections.

Silicon Valley also uses AutoloadMAX Corporate Edition that helps to efficiently manage communication expense of employees. It sends load to prepaid lines individually or in bulk to save time, and at the same time monitor expenses in real-time. This service can schedule automated reloading daily, weekly or monthly and track down spending or usage by department or location and even down to individual employees.

Next to cost efficiency, Silicon Valley also needed business solutions that deliver reliable connectivity. Globe Business brings real-time connectivity and security to Silicon Valley with its MPLS (Multi-point Layer 3 private IP service) and VPN (Virtual Private Network) Express Wireless. These allow businesses to receive updated information from various locations needed for faster decision-making and improved monitoring enabling them to have better market response. They are also highly secured that ensure safe networking.

Silicon Valley has been around since December 1985 and to date it has over 25 stores and employs more than 400 people. It has one of the widest ranges of IT products today, following its humble beginnings as a computer rental and training center by a group of college friends in its first store in Harrison Plaza. The store offered hourly computer rental and one-on-one computer training, both firsts in the IT scene during those times.

Customers clamored for more products and services that led Silicon Valley to grow and provide for these needs. It opened its second store after one year in business and the company added more to its roster of offerings through the years. Silicon Valley has several branches in Metro Manila as well as Cebu, Davao, Laguna, Cavite, Pampanga, Bulacan, Pangasinan and Camarines Sur.
