Pointwest Ramps Up for Enterprise Mobility Solutions, Projects Already in Pipeline
August 22, 2012
Pointwest, the largest 100% Filipino-owned IT-BPO company in the Philippines, beefs up its mobile app team for enterprise-level projects lined up for the year.
Manila, Philippines — Pointwest Technologies Corporation is steadily building its mobile application development team as it makes headway in the enterprise mobility solutions market. Projects requiring extensions of enterprise apps to smartphone users on Android and iOS are already in the pipeline.
While this is its first big push into the enterprise mobility market, Pointwest already has a considerable track record in mobile. It developed and powered a mobile app for a large airline based in the United States. The app allows passengers to modify their itineraries straight from their smartphones. Pointwest also powered the first mobile-based, microfinance-focused savings bank in the Philippines.
In November last year, the company snagged a place on Globe Telecom’s MobApp Hunt 2011. Globe is one of the biggest telecommunications company in the Philippines. Pointwest’s entry to the contest was HookApp, a social networking app for hanging out and dating. It sifts through a userbase to connect “seekers” with similar tastes.
Pointwest will present its ramped-up mobile app services as one of its core offerings at this year’s CeBIT in Hannover, Germany, from March 6 to 10. CeBIT is the world’s largest trade show dedicated to the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industry, with thousands of ICT firms showcasing their products and services. This is Pointwest’s third time to join CeBIT. International companies looking to outsource Information Technology services can drop by Pointwest’s booth at CeBIT, at the CBI Pavilion, Hall 006, Stand #E26.
