Pointwest, the largest Filipino-owned IT-BPM company in the Philippines, participated in three international conferences in May, namely, SODEC in Japan, CeBIT in Australia, and CommunicAsia in Singapore, to showcase Philippine IT-BPM capabilities for a global audience of investors, tech giants, businesses, innovators, entrepreneurs, and think tanks.
The focus on top ASEAN conferences propels forward a strategy in the Philippine IT-BPM industry’s 2022 roadmap, to diversify and to penetrate markets apart from US and Europe. Pointwest is the only Philippine company to participate in all three international events this 2017.
The company’s drive to promote the $22.9 billion dollar Philippine IT-BPM industry kicked off at the Software Development Expo 2017 (SODEC) in Tokyo, Japan on May 10th to 12th where the company shared its expertise and experience in Data Engineering and Data Science (Analytics); Enterprise Mobile application development; Omni-channel application development and maintenance; Business Process Management; Software Testing and automation; User Experience (UX) design consulting, and Robotic Process Automation (RPA).
In a presentation titled “The Possibilities of Collaboration Between Philippine IT Industry and Japanese Companies”, Mr. Shingo Tsuboi from IBS cited his company’s ongoing partnership with Pointwest during the Business Matching activity of the Philippine Delegation at the Osaki Bright Core Building in Shinagawa on May 9. This activity created a platform for one-on-one dialogue between Philippine IT-BPM companies and Japanese business and technology leaders, who took home Tsuboi-san’s key message that “among all the Philippine IT companies in [this] business matching event, you will absolutely be able to find a Philippine partner most suitable for your business operations”.

The company next showcased Philippine IT-BPM sector advancements in CeBIT Australia that took place on May 23rd to 25th. CeBIT Australia is the largest and longest running B2B technology exhibition in the Asia-Pacific region. Pointwest’s participation aimed to promote digital solutions and innovative products for the Transportation and Travel, Logistics, Digital Health, Pharmacovigilance, Fintech and Banking, and the Retail industries. The delegation, which comprised of members from 9 IT companies in Philippines, interacted with Australian businessmen and organizations to share expertise on Data Engineering and Data Science; User Experience Consulting; Cybersecurity Consulting; Software Testing and Automation; Cloud Transformation Consulting; Mobile Computing; Application Development and Management, and Business Process Management. The Australian market is already familiar territory for Pointwest, given its partnerships with two fast-growing Australian small-to-midsize businesses for whom the company developed enterprise software products.

Lastly, Pointwest joined another nine company delegation in CommunicAsia 2017, an Information and Communications Technology (ICT) exhibition and conference held on May 23rd to 25th in Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. As the premier sourcing and knowledge ICT platform in Asia, the ICT conference showcased trending technologies that fostered much dialogue and discussion of partnerships. These included Smart Cities, IoT, Security & CyberSecurity, Enterprise Mobility, and Borderless Broadband, as well as specific solutions for learning management and mobile remittance With Singapore being the main Asian hub for global companies, this conference was a great opportunity for the Filipino IT-BPM industry to increase its visibility, moreso with the Philippines as the featured country-in-focus during a seminar aptly-titled Philippines Connect.

This purpose-driven approach is deeply rooted in the company’s DNA since its founding 2003, and has led to mutually beneficial partnerships with Fortune 500 companies and global enterprises.

Pointwest is keen to be a partner for businesses who wish to thrive in this fourth industrial revolution.” Beng Coronel, Pointwest President
