Infrastructure-as-a-Service: The Cloud End-point Integrated Service enables users to access their personal desktops via the Internet for daily work, email communication and data storage.

The Integrated Information Display System (IIDS), designed by PCCW Solutions, is one of the first systems in the world able to capture and display integrated digital signals such as radar data, user data, CCTV video and audio voice. IIDS enables organizations to boost their decision-making power by integrating related real-time information.

Software-as-a-Service: Leveraging the scalable Point-of-Sale/CRM service provided by PCCW Solutions, retailers are able to expand their retail chains swiftly without worrying about IT hardware and software purchase and installation. The Clinic Management System helps private clinics manage their clinic operations and patient care services with greater efficiency, and provides healthcare practitioners with instant access to real-time electronic patient records. Our Software-as-a-Service platform will also be extended to cover human resources, payroll, accounting and procurement services.

Content-as-a-Service: Drawing on our expertise in identity management and experience of building a validation platform for the healthcare community, PCCW Solutions can provide a secure eHealth record repository guarded by stringent security access control and identity management to facilitate real-time medical information exchange for public and private healthcare practitioners.
