SINGAPORE—American software company Progress will soon offer more cost-friendly products in the Philippines to help businesses in their digital transformation, executives said.
Progress newly-appointed managing director for Asia Benjamin Wong said in a news briefing the Philippine market was vital to the company as a number of local government units in the country were using their products.
“The reason why is it important is our Philippine business throughout the years is very much with the LGUs. A lot of our applications are built on our platform. We have a telecommunications partner like PLDT,” Wong said at the Asia Pacific Exchange conference here.
Progress vice president for sales Matthew Gharegozlou said the company was developing low-cost products to aid companies in the age of digital transformation. “[We are working on] model that reduces the initial investments that will help the company,” Gharegozlou said.
Wong said Progress was optimistic about organic growth in the Philippines. “Stay tuned for what we are gonna do in the Philippines. Expect to see some changes in terms of how Progress is operating there,” he said.
