FOPM, Globe to Accelerate Digitally Powered Megaworld Properties
First Oceanic Property Management Inc. (FOPM), the property management arm of Megaworld Corporation, and Globe Telecom enter into a strategic partnership that aims to revolutionize the property management industry through the integration of digital technology, design innovation, and connectivity into FOPM-managed Megaworld developments.
“In this fast-changing digital world, we see the importance of aligning our developments to quickly adapt to new technologies, which we believe is an opportunity to disrupt ourselves and remain competitive in this ever-changing landscape,” shared FOPM President Joy Salazar.
Salazar adds: “It is about innovation, integration, and interconnectivity. The partnership between FOPM and Globe makes it easier for us to make our developments future-ready, which will greatly benefit those who own and occupy residential units in our managed properties.”
To this end, the Integrated FOPM Automated Experience (iFAE), in direct collaboration with GCash, is implementing digitized payment processes in residential and office units, through Globe At Home and Globe Business. This attentive digital service provides a 24/7 payment facility, offering “pay anywhere and pay anytime” security, and convenience in today’s fast-paced lifestyle environment.
This year, 25 FOPM-managed properties will be able to enjoy the prestigious benefits of the program. More and more properties are expected to come online in 2020, allowing all of FOPM’s residential and office customers to fully enjoy efficient, seamless, and personalized communications, through Globe Mobile offerings.
Globe Chief Commercial Officer Albert de Larrazabal shares his insights on the project: “To make this program a success, we need to have robust connectivity and uncompromising performance. This has to be supplemented by affordable offerings that users can utilize. These fundamentals are the fields that we at Globe have made available, and we keep improving and expanding on these areas to ensure that property owners and users in FOPM and Megaworld will benefit and be covered.”
Aside from the different products and solutions that Globe offers, FOPM has also taken an interest in adopting the leading telecommunications’ sustainability programs. It plans to implement Project 1 Phone, Globe’s E-waste recycling campaign. The project aims to collect old and broken mobile phones, tablets, mp3 players, chargers, and other e-waste for proper disposal and recycling.
All proceeds from recycling these electronic waste go to Globe’s advocacy to help build public school classrooms around the country.
