To start with, the bundle includes internet connectivity, the full suite of Microsoft 365 with essential Office applications and cloud storage on OneDrive to provide access to files from any device, anytime and anywhere, it added.

Batelco said these are crucial services that support the modern way of running businesses by operating remotely.

Additionally, all the necessary business devices such as laptops, printers, tablets, and mobiles are part of the deal along with top of the range network security, and Cloud POS (Point of Sale), enabling businesses to manage their sales, inventory, and payments, it stated.
