Local software firm Pointwest Technologies Corporation was named finalist in two categories at the recent 2015 Asia CEO Awards, recognizing its leadership and organizational achievements as a fully Filipino-owned IT-BPM firm.
The two categories were for the KPMG Executive Leadership Team of the Year and the TCS Asean Company of the Year. The awarding ceremony was held at the Marriott Hotel Manila?s Grand Ballroom in Pasay City.
?Pointwest considers it a great honor to have been nominated for two categories,? Pointwest president Ma. Cristina ?Beng? Coronel said. ?Given the large number of applicants this year, becoming a finalist is an achievement. To be named for two categories is high praise, indeed.?
Pointwest?s drive to strengthen its digital capabilities has led to the establishment of its “Digital Playground” at the Rockwell Business Center, which creates solutions for mobility, social collaboration, data science and the cloud.
Pointwest?s mobile team continues to reap awards with its mobile disaster app Arko. In 2015, it has been awarded by three award-giving bodies — the World Summit Awards for the Mobile Category of m-Inclusion and empowerment, the International ICT Awards for Best Philippine Mobile App, and it is now nominated at the Asean ICT Awards with the grand champion to be unveiled this November 2015.
Believing in the Asean growth potential, Pointwest has incorporated Pointwest Global to strengthen its business integration and continue its advocacy as the Filipino brand of knowledge specialists.
?Expansion into Asean has long been a goal of the company,? Rene Quizon, executive director for business development at Pointwest, said. ?During the regional leg of the Asean Business Awards in 2014, and in the face of Asean integration, we think that this is an opportune time to really build up our presence in our home region.?
