Setting its sight in helping the country reach its workplace potential, Canon Marketing Philippines (CMPI) conducted “POP: The Pros of Productivity” in EDSA Shangri-La, Mandaluyong City last October 17 to 18, 2017.
The digital imaging solutions provider also brought together the pros and leaders of various industries to share their knowledge on how technology has created avenues for companies to foster productivity, the long-term benefits it brings forth, and how it makes business simpler at Canon’s first technology and solutions expo
“Numerous industries, ranging from enterprises to small to medium businesses, risk 1% of their company’s annual revenue that solely makes up unwanted printing costs. Coupled with document management problems, these non-essentials sum up to a whopping P1-million annual loss. These problems, alongside the recurrent issues we hear from different companies that circle around data security, document retrieval and management are a few of the menial problems that should easily be lifted off the weight of employees. This stems the Pros of Productivity, one of the initiatives Canon is putting forward in its commitment to becoming an instrument of change to promote a more conducive and productive working environment for the delight of all,” shared Kazuhiro Ozawa, the new CMPI president and CEO.
POP was meant to shed light on common pain points companies undergo on a day-to-day basis, and on first-hand experiences that business operators might be overlooking that are the root cause of minute workflow inefficiencies.

Francis Acero, complaints and investigations division chief, National Privacy Commission; Andres Licaros Jr., president and CEO of Asian Hospital and Medical Center; Jubert Alberto, country head of the International Data Corporation Philippines; Arnel Sechong, head of procurement at DHL Global Business Services; Rene Banzon, deputy manager of SIA Engineering; Jan Aliling, managing director of Acube Law; Jonathan Yabut, Apprentice Asia winner and founder and managing director – JY Consultancy and Ventures; Seew Choi Gek, business development manager of Therefore Corporation; Ann Barrameda, founder of Abba’s Orchard; and Fr.
