Asticom Eyes International Market for Shared Services
Asticom Group of Companies has its eyes set on the international market for its shared services business, seeing a huge outsourcing potential from overseas clients.
Mharicar Castillo-Reyes, Asticom President and CEO, said they are already talking to a number of customers who are interested in outsourcing some of their IT, finance and human resource shared solutions to the Philippines.
“They believe in the quality of the talents we have, the infrastructure that we have. They are also confident that we can deliver a better experience for their customers,” she said at a recent media roundtable.
Asticom’s Asti Business Services Inc. (ABSI) is at the forefront of this initiative, proving to be a key player in the IT-BSO industry just a year into its operations.
ABSI offers managed services such as Business Service Outsourcing and Information Technology, and digital platform services like Customer Experience and Employee Engagement. With Asticom’s recent acquisition of HCX Technology Partners Inc. from Ayala Corporation, ABSI expanded its services to include human resources, customer relationship management, and digital solutions.
“We plan to go international in the next few years. We have started our efforts in creating brand awareness and more exposure for ABSI and HCX to the international market. We currently have a couple of multinational companies as clients,” said Melissa Tecson, General Manager of ABSI.
On the local front, Asticom currently has over 190 clients in about 25 industries. While most of its clients are large businesses, the group has started looking into small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that need the most support.
“We’re helping these businesses grow and supporting them through our logistics solutions BRAD for last-mile delivery. We also have ABSI for payroll and HR services, and FINSI to power businesses through connectivity. We believe that will expand the level of clientele that we have today in the Philippines,” said Reyes.
Asticom strives to continuously improve its business solutions to propel its clients and people towards greater growth. It is also gearing up to introduce new technologies and innovations to widen its scope of services.
As part of the Globe Group, Asticom supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, particularly UN SDG No. 9, highlighting the roles of infrastructure and innovation as crucial drivers of economic growth and development. It is committed to upholding the UN Global Compact principles and contributing to 10 UN SDGs.
