"You need to be committed to performing to the best of your ability every single day."
There is this Chinese proverb, “the older the ginger, the spicier it gets”. This saying is frequently used to express the wisdom that comes with age. SPTel is fortunate to have one such “spicy ginger” in our team lead, Business (Biz) IT Service Management Center (SMC) Manager, Wang Ping.
Aside from a Master’s Degree in Business in Information Technology , Wang Ping also processes 2 decades of experience in the Telecommunications industry, managing large-scale and complex projects and maintaining the mission-critical applications in Asia-Pacific, specialising in BSS/OSS delivery management, digital transformation, IT Service Management and Project Management.
With the aim of achieving automation of SPTel’s operations under his tenure, Wang Ping draws on his reservoir of experience to implement with and guide his team on areas such as increasing productivity and efficiency of operation to drive business benefits. He hopes that in time, the team will accumulate enough experience for themselves so that they too can draw on their own experiences and deal with similar situations with ease.
For a person who has experienced it all at the workplace, we wonder what makes him excited to come to work at SPTel every day. Wang Ping shares.
“I am excited to be part of SPTel’s digital transformation project, as I get to design, build and implement a truly end to end digital BSS/OSS system. With the high availability and scalability of SPTel’s network and edge cloud, it allows me to deliver many new breakthroughs that would not have been possible with traditional providers. I am proud to be part of the team in SPTel that is bringing a revolutionary digitalised customer experience to the market.”
SPTel’s core values were a big draw as well.
“Besides the work, the people and culture here make a big difference. The positive work environment makes me feel like I’m part of a big family, working as a team to help each other become better.”
With so many years of experience behind him, we asked Wang Ping to share some words of wisdom and work philosophy with us.
“You need to be committed to performing to the best of your ability every single day. I am an optimist and believe that there is a solution to every problem and every problem presents an opportunity. As long as I approach challenges with an open mind, I know that I can always resolve them. This has helped tremendously in resolving any issues I have encountered in the workplace and enabled me to grow in my career and development as an individual.”
Even out of work, Wang Ping continues to build on his experience through traveling.
“Traveling opens my mind to the different customs and cultures in other countries which helps me to better interact with my colleagues and clients.”
Wang Ping also enjoys playing Chinese Chess and spending time with his family watching Chinese dramas.
