• Pointwest:
    100% Filipino, 100% Global.


    The team behind some of the world’s largest enterprise systems,
    and why we have become their IT partner of choice.

Overview

Driven by the best IT Professionals
and supported by world-class
communication infrastructure.

Two things — one being the polar opposite of the other — defined the year Pointwest was established. The year was 2003, when the Philippines saw an exodus of nurses and an influx of foreign investment in global sourcing services. The latter resulted in the call center boom, a success story in the Philippine economy that is now worth US$260M (about PHP 11 billion).

In the global sourcing industry, another “movement” was stirring and would later have its own success story. The pioneer-leaders of this movement were Pointwest’s own founders, who refocused efforts to develop competencies for high-value Information Technology and Business Process Services. It was a bit of a gamble, since the Philippines wasn’t yet known for its technology capabilities, but the gamble paid off.

In less than a decade, the Philippines evolved from being a call center destination to a mature location for software services, and Pointwest has evolved alongside it. From being a minor participant in a global multibillion-dollar industry, the company is now a leading player driven by the best IT professionals and supported by world-class communication infrastructure.

Milestones

  • The Founding

    In January 2003, nine pioneers of the then-nascent Philippine global sourcing industry founded what would eventually become one of the biggest Filipino IT-BPM companies. The Pointwest founders envisioned a company that would showcase Filipino IT talent to the rest of the world.

  • A Growing Concern: The Technohub Delivery Center

    In 2008, Pointwest became one of the first companies to have operations at the UP-AyalaLand Technohub in Diliman, Quezon City. The Technohub Delivery Center represented the rapid growth of Pointwest, who today occupies two-and-a-half floors of what was then Building Alpha. In 2014, the Alpha Building would be renamed the Pointwest Building.

  • “Twin” CMMI Appraisals

    Pointwest believes in anchoring its processes to international standards. In 2013, the company received a rare “twin” appraisal of Maturity Level 3 under CMMI-DEV (v1.3) and CMMI-SVC (v1.3). The CMMI Institute benchmarks organizations at this level to have pro-actively defined their processes for Development and for Service Delivery, which means Pointwest clients are assured of consistency in high-quality services.

    Pointwest is the first Southeast Asian firm to achieve this distinction.

  • A first for Arko and the Philippines

    Mobile flood monitoring and stormwatch application Arko has long been a pride of Pointwest. In 2014 and 2015, Arko managed to exceed expectations by being the first Philippine mobile app to be a finalist in the 2014 World Summit Awards for Mobile (WSAm). It would go to Abu Dhabi in February 2015 to compete for the Global Champion in the m-Inclusion & Empowerment category.

  • One of the most Innovative in ASEAN

    In 2014 the first ever Philippine leg of the ASEAN Business Awards was held. Pointwest managed to be named the first ever winner of the Innovation Award. It represented the Philippines in the regional level months later, bagging First Runner Up honors in the same category.
