RELIABLE communication is of even greater importance if you want to keep readers informed as events unfold.

And Vodafone Fiji Limited is working with Fiji Times Limited to make communication easy considering its importance in the news business.

Vodafone head of corporate sales George Kotobalavu said it was important that as Fiji's leading print media, The Fiji Times continued to upgrade its communications technology with the changing needs.

Fiji Times Limited marketing manager Foto Ledua said the newspaper was happy to embark on the exciting project with Vodafone. "The suite of products offered by Vodafone meets our diverse communication needs.

"Their solutions include voice and data services, smartphones — used by all our reporters and management team — flashnets or the wireless mobile broadband solution, which is used across the business," Ms Ledua said.

She said the Internet Protocol Virtual Private Network (IPVPN) and Wide Area Network (WAN) solution to link all its offices in Suva, Lautoka and Labasa provided efficient and reliable connectivity with the dedicated internet solution for the company's headquarters in Suva.

The company uses Vodafone's vehicle tracking solution to track and monitor its fleet, which had led to greater efficiency, better accountability and reduced operational costs.

Last week also marked yet another milestone with Vodafone following the launch of Fiji Times short code dialling.

Vodafone and Inkk customers can now dial short code 1869 from their mobiles to call our Head Office.

The choice of short code 1869 is significant as it was the year The Fiji Times was first published in Fiji.

Ms Ledua said the short code dialling feature made it easy and convenient for customers and businesses to call Fiji Times.
