PLDT, Inc. subsidiary Multisys Technologies Corp. has been tapped by Cignal TV, Inc. to provide the television network with technology to streamline its business systems.

The company said in a statement Monday it has entered a strategic partnership with Cignal, which is also a PLDT affiliated company, for the integration of the firm’s pay television system.

“The said partnership will strengthen Cignal TV’s front and back-end processes such as sales, marketing, product development, and customer service through improved subscriber management system, provisioning systems, and billing systems,” the company said.

Multisys said the agreement is expected to help Cignal address customer needs for more innovative products and services.

The company wants to continue expanding its platform to engage with other industries such as information technology, government, health care, utilities, hospitality, retail and the academe. One of Multisys’ most known products is the Bayad Center mobile application, which was launched earlier this year.

Hastings Holdings, Inc., a unit of PLDT Beneficial Trust Fund subsidiary MediaQuest Holdings, Inc., has a majority stake in BusinessWorld through the Philippine Star Group, which it controls. — Denise A. Valdez
