Moving Forward


As time goes by INFOVISION RESEARCH SYSTEMS, stood still consistent with the values and principles it is tracking from day one of its existence. It’s commitment of  100% service to its growing client base  through a innovative, cost effective, efficient and qualitative reporting is unwavering for the past seven years. True to this, the company is steadfast in finding solutions to reduce errors, improve quality and efficiency more so to uphold the trust and confidence of the fast growing clientele base all over the country. Inorder to attain a sustained business volume our company continue to be more aggressive and dynamic in all fronts. It is by these tenets that our company is resolved to be more competitive in the next coming years even with global industry players coming in to join the foray.

In our recent estimates based on our research there are at least 200 industry players either as Pre Employment Screening process agency or Background Investigation agency, a Credit Reporting agency, Accounts Receivable Management agency or companies doing all those business types. From that 200, there were about 10-15% which are global in nature, which means that their head office is outside of the country or having a operations in at least one more country.

Our basic understanding of the industry had expanded with the advent of better equipped competitors who are well entrenched and well capitalized. We answered it with our B3 Campaign, which stands for a Better, Bigger and Bolder Campaign which is currently materializing. In line with this, our teams is studying and exploring the usual standard industry norms of bundled services such as the Drug Check, Global Database Check etc. We intend also to put emphasis on our other business segments through branding and separate marketing campaigns through the available marketing tools. And certainly with all these recent activities we have, we could say that we have experienced initial successes.

In line with this, the company strengthened its presence in the social network particularly in the internet by reinforcing its Facebook site, created its own fanpage account and blog. This is intended inorder to reach a critical mass of awareness and put our company in the mainstream. We have also reinvigorated our INFOVISION NEWSLETTER and come up with this Issue No. 2 to enhance media mileage in the process.

Our company, INFOVISION RESEARCH SYSTEMS, had come along way. We have outlived the challenges for a start up company and most especially outdone the most critical period in 2008-2010 and come out better and stronger. Kudos to all the men and women who stood grounds and defend our turf and made the sacrifices for the company for the last seven years.

And true to our commitment in our B3 campaign, INFOVISION will continue to uphold our greater vision of expanding our reach so we can serve as many clients as possible, improve our efficiency and lower the cost in the process. In line with this, I am happy to announce that INFOVISION – Pampanga Branch which will cater to the Northern Luzon area and servicing potential clients in Pampanga, Tarlac, Subic, Clark, Baguio, La Union etc.. will start to its business operations this October 2011.

We have also prepared the framework to officially use our IIMS and our Online Payroll System by 2012.

These are one in the many things to look forward to our company from this year on and in the succeeding years. Rest assured that our company will be more dynamic, aggressive and competitive as we grow more mature and confident. Lets MOVE FORWARD!!!

Little Things that Matters


 

In every path of journey there is always hardships along the way because fruitful beginnings are matters that fixated the vision straightforward while hardships sets the successful and the quitters apart. To be True to you and True to me are little things that matters because it sets the precedence of strong foundation based on trust and confidence and not on sheer convenience or simple accommodations.

When Infovision Research Systems was started, its foundation is  based on a clearly defined notion of “Trust” and “Confidence”. The belief that each member is important and worthy of trust  and that each member shall reciprocate it with confidence. Over the years, this belief is still at force, maybe its little things, but it matters so much as far as our company is concerned.

There once a story of a person who goes to the antique shop without anything in mind or purpose to buy. He just roams around the shop and found a detailed and well crafted bronze rat. He immediately picked it up and goes to the old man cashier and asked for the price. The old man told the person, “You may take the bronze rat for P/200 pesos and the story that goes with it for P/ 1000”. The young man, quibbled.. i will just take the bronze rat.. never mind the story. Then the old man wrapped it up and give it to the young man..

While outside walking, he passed a sewage hole and see two rats coming out to follow him..he didnt mind it.. then passing by another sewage hole, another four rats followed.. and then it goes into hundreds. People who had seen him followed by hundreds to thousands of rats are shouting in fear and disgust. He began to run fast, when the rats keeps going more and more to hundred thousands and followed him wherever he goes.

He runs as fast as he could, then seeing a post, he decided to cling into it and sensing that the rats are attracted to the bronze rats he throw it away near the seashore and soon the hundreds of thousand of rats followed it  to drown and die. He did go back to the antique store and upon seeing him go back the old man cashier asked him.. “Did you go back for the story young man?”.  The young man said, “No sir, i was wondering if you have bronze officemates… ”

The moral of  story is simply…Trust. When people trusted you, they follow you. And when they dont they ignore you.  “Trust” is one thing you give reciprocated by Confidence…. Little Things but Matters most.

 

Have a good day IRS Teams!!!

INFOVISION LAGUNA BRANCH @1 : A SHIP ON ITS JOURNEY


August 2010 – was the birth of Infovision Research Systems- Laguna Branch. The management seeing the vast potential of the CALABARZON  and Southern Luzon area which is  home to more than a hundred export zones and a thriving manufacturing center of the country decided to strategically position itself  choosing Calamba , a historical and industrial city of Laguna as its base. The branch aims to become the base for Infovision’s Southern Luzon operations including the Bicol Region.   The branch operation was initially  headed by Mr. Gerald Viado as the Branch Supervisor with the goal of targeting the projected revenue that would maintain the branch operations in a long term vision. Initial operations were being handled by team who were brought from the Makati branch namely Ms. Liezel Manallo’ as the Branch Admin  and Marketing Officer,  Mr. Estalin De Guzman as the Field Researcher. It was still under the supervision of the Chief Operations Officer, Mr. Conrad Villena Jr.

The first months of operations is  focused on its marketing goal to acquire more clients since it started  operation with clients acquired by the Makati Branch but with  operations on the area. These includes ROHM, PLANBANK, EMERSON, KOYO, NECTOKIN, NECTOPPAN, HONDA and TELETECH  Cavite and Laguna Accounts. Infovision Laguna has in fact a good client base so to speak to ensure a viable operations in the long term basis.

In October 2010, the Management assigned Mr. Andy Coma – concurrent Research Division Manager and now the Research Director to temporarily manage the branch to ensure the branch aligned to the operational standards of the company on the way to success. It was then that the branch made a lot of improvements due to the strong teamwork . The site  continue to earn more accounts thereby increasing its revenue in the process.  From a four original team, the branch now counts to about ten when growth of volume requires more people to handle and meet the client expectations.

Infovision Laguna branch continues its journey towards success like a ship who traverses the vast seascape to reach its destiny. It is determined to overcome the trying periods associated with in the normal birth pains of a company.  This resulted to an increase of percentage for both volume and revenue generation though it still not yet profitable during this period.  The branch delivered more positive outlook towards success and relevance in line with the vision of its CEO and President Mr. Henry C. Poblador. It aims to at least register a P/ 500,000 income during its first year and contribute to the Infovision’s goal and become a revenue generating branch.

In the year 2011, the Laguna Branch pursued a more aggressive approach to attain growth and by  January  it already recorded a 67% efficiency rate  which is a good starting performance for the new year. This performance even increased  by almost 30%  during the  first quarter of  2011. By March, the branch successfully acquired two new clients, JAE Philippines Incorporated and YUTAKA Manufacturing Philippines Incorporated both a manufacturing facility located in the Export Zone which effectively raised the branch active clients  to 13. This shows that the branch has the potential to grow within the goal.

The  reassignment of Mr. Andy Coma – Concurrent Branch Operations Manager to the Makati branch proved challenging since the company had to contend in harnessing locally hired personnel to manage the Branch operation.  The appointment of  Ms. Rachel Juanillo as the new BOM of Laguna is a manifestation of trust and confidence of the company on her capabilities to lead the branch and continue to pursue its visions and goals.

By the second quarter of the year Laguna branch posted a sharp increases of  volume which is being experienced for three consecutive months accordingly. It is now gearing on a  90% of efficiency rate  as far as Turn Around (TA) is concerned. By June it radically increased to more than 100%  as it surpassed the goal of 250 accounts to 380 accounts during the month to gain  a 152% of efficiency rate advantage.

August  1, 2011, Infovision Research Systems- Laguna Branch  is turning 1 year old. It is grateful to the management’s  trust and confidence and expectations for a continued strong performance for the whole year  with great pride. The whole Laguna Team is committed to provide a relentless and sustained effort to continue to bring Infovision Research System’s  vision and mission to existing and prospective clients.

The branch is now currently managed by Ms. Rachel Juanillo – Branch Operations Manager with the Full cooperation of the team, Ms. Liezel Manallo’ – Branch Admin, Mr. Radcliffe Earl Baylosis – Branch IT & Logistics Officer, Mr. Jefferson Barit – Credit  Officer, Ms. Jennilyn Anquillano, and Ms. Jinky Gealone & Ms. Ana Dela Cruz – Data Analysts, Mr. Jeffrey Libario & Mr. Alvin Hernandez – Researchers.

KUDOS and God Bless the INFOVISION LAGUNA TEAM AND TO INFOVISION RESEARCH SYSTEMS AS A WHOLE !

INFOVISION MANILA @ 5


Infovision Manila @ 5

By: konrad

Infovision Manila started in August of 2006 at the heart of Makati Central Business District. It held its Manila office at Unit 403 of Cityland Condominium III, occupying an area of less than 30 square meters. Initially it was manned by a single person with the help of a former colleague and after two months, a marketing staff from Cebu arrived and focused on business development activities for Manila operation.

Manila Cordage Corporation, a rope and twine manufacturer was the 1st client of Infovision Manila for credit investigation. It was in October 2006 when we won the contract for Sitel Philippines, a Business Process Outsourcing company contracted us as their exclusive vendor for pre-employment screening or background investigation services. To cope up with the growing business demands, additional personnel were added including Ms. Len Enriquez who started as Tele specialist handling Sitel account and later promoted to become one of the front runners of Infovision Manila.

Since the inception of Infovision Manila, Sitel Philippines was the 1st BPO client of the company to become their exclusive vendor.

Planters Development Bank (PDB) was the 1st bank account we handled during our formative years of operation. PDB availed of our background investigation services for all their employees nationwide. From background investigation services they are now using Infovision for their field credit investigation services focusing in Metro Manila and its immediate vicinities.

The second year of Infovision Manila was the most challenging year. In terms of client acquisition and revenue generation including the financial standing of the company, this was the tough time for all the officers and staffs. Having faced with financial difficulties, we needed to tighten our belts to survive on this very difficult and trying times. The management decided to review the overall operational processes, made a strategic planning and personnel appraisal to come out with a better Infovision in the coming years.

The challenges brought by economic crises worldwide had just made us stronger to face the coming years with enthusiasm and positive mindset, believing that that the 1 Million monthly gross revenue for Manila as envision during the conceptualization stage of Manila operation was not remote but achievable and can be done.

Infovision Manila team continued its aggressive marketing campaign and improved its operational dynamics in 2008. From the total endorsements of 656 in 2007, the branch generated a total endorsement 2,159 in 2008. In 2009, we received a total endorsement of 3,905 and almost tripled in 2010 by acquiring 10,847 client endorsements.

Four years after it was incepted, the month of August 2010 was the highlight of Manila operation having achieved record breaking Php 1.0 M gross revenue for that month. The succeeding months of that year, gross revenue generation steadily maintained at P/ 1M to as high as P 1.6 M in November of 2010.

Client acquisition vastly improved in the last two years of operation with the help of our Business Development Director, Delia Javier. Sustained marketing activities were formulated by focusing on three dynamics of Quality, Efficiency and Innovation. The total client acquisition in 2009 was 19 and increased to 26 by 2010 or up by 36 %.

From four personnel in 2006, Infovision Manila has a current workforce of 60 employees. We now have three core business divisions, namely: Credit and Appraisal Division under Ms Almira Puso – Baltazar, Research & Publication Division by Mr. Andy Coma and B.I. Division. The BI Division is under the direct leadership of Mr. Carlo Virtudez. He has four departments under this division, namely: Tele Specialist under the supervision of Ms. Loida Carino, Data Analysts Department under Ms Ella Sepe, School Specialists Department under Aimee Amores and the Field Research Department under Mr. Marlon Talosig.

The over all Manila Branch Operation is handled by one of the pioneer employee of Manila, Ms. Len Enriquez. From a single unit at the 4th floor of Cityland III in 2006, Manila is now occupying four units at the 3rd floor of Cityland III Condominium. Separate units for every department were established to have an efficient and comfortable working atmosphere.

As we move forward to a BIGGER, BOLDER and BETTER Infovision Research System we continue to believe in our employees, that the company can operate smoothly and efficiency through the dedication and positive output produced by its employees. No matter how high tech a company is, a loyal and capable staff is of the utmost importance. As we continue with our journey, though its long and winding road, we will rise victorious because of the people we have here in Infovision Research System.

Infovision Manila will be celebrating its 5th Anniversary this August 2011. To all of you guys, “CHEERS” may you continue to be a blessing to others “Happy Anniversary”.

Creating Infovision Research System’s Future.


The internet boom, the lowering of the airfare brought by the deregulation of the airline industry, the affordable communication cost through unlimited calls and text brought by the cut throat competition in the telecom industry and the greater competition in almost all industry levels had been some factors and forces that connived into the successful forays of Infovision Research Systems in its industry today. And uh, lets say, the Heavenly intervention forms part of the greater equation, likewise.

While these interventions shaped the company’s history, it nonetheless attributes other important factors such as the passionate, dedicated and hardworking people, competent and the “I’ve got what it takes” character of the company’s founder, simmered by ingredients of luck, perseverance and foresight completed everything.

Although in some way, the company being part of the general business cycle is not insulated in the Philippine and even Global economic crisis since it too has a share in the mess. When the company started in Aug. 2004 with only a handful of clients who puts its trust and confidence to the founder for its outsourced job, it never failed to grow day by day. Year by year, the company emerges to post increasing business volume, thus, the unimpeded growth in four straight years. Because of the strong confidence of achieving a goal, the company decided to expand to market where the potential is huge and the opportunities are vast and then its exponential growth and eventual increase of share in the industry is inevitable so to speak.

However, in the latter part of 2008 until the early part of 2010, a debacle happens due to the global economic crisis in the US which affected alot of economies worldwide. Infovision saw a drastic drop of volume of business which forced it to streamline its workforce and enforce a strict and sustained austerity measures to cope up with the crisis. It was a difficult time that requires the skill of the management team to go back to the drawing board and revise its strategies. True to that, the company quickly shifted from an aggressive and expansive mood strategy into the survival strategy. Good thing that all of its personnel are very cooperative despite of their own problems generated in the process.

While the hard times are felt for almost two years, the company took it as an opportunity to prepare for the comeback of the economy. It took potshot on the strong showing of the BPO Industry and focused the company’s remaining resources to effectively market on this industry segment which fortunately had been successful enough since business generated on these industry became Infovision’s primary source of revenue in the next three years.

Another good thing brought by the crisis is, Infovision saw it as an opportunity to expand its services and indentified industry where it can be assured of good business volume, likewise the Teams bonded more together to work more effectively. And because of this bonding together, the company is now prepared than ever to face more challenges ahead.

In the third quarter of 2010, it is apparent that the global crisis is waning. The Philippine economy though least affected is back in full throttle as far as economy is concerned. And Infovision is poised to regain the foothold it sorely missed in two years. The preparation of the company paid off. The volume trickled but triple times that what is actually expected. Then the company has to scamper since more business volumes requires more investment and more people which is a daunting challenge for an ill capitalized company who just came from surviving a crisis. Another challenge is when people seeing more opportunities when the economy returns to its place decided to find greener pastures and so on and so forth.

Revenue increased however, the management is constrained to allocate more resources to match the increasing demand of people and facilities. It has to managed funds for investment purposes and at the same time ensure a competitive package for its workforce.

In the company’s almost seven years, it has withered alot of challenges and like a warrior in the battlefield, it is prepared and willing to do more battles. But within these battles in the future like any other battles it had fought Infovision is determined to win.

Infovision’s future in the next few years is a journey. A journey of the entire stakeholder leads by its founder. According to Peter Ducker.. “The Best Way to Predict the future is to Create it”… Let us now gear up to create the future of Infovision!

INFOVISION RESEARCH SYSTEMS : GOING THE DISTANCE!!


Almost seven years ago there was a dream, a small dream which started in a small step, a small step made a life size bigger by big hopes, and big hopes which is valued by hard work and hard work fruitioned into a dynamic, passionate, innovative and results oriented organization. Today, Infovision Research System has conquered the country through a determined, strategic and well-motivated approach in getting into the value chain. It had gone the distance.

Going the distance comes with a humble beginnings mostly invested on a sustained, efficient and deliberate efforts marked by goodwill, transparency, friendship to the stakeholders and customer focused services for its long list of clients who keeps growing day by day. Infovision Research Systems today takes pride of its hardworking people who took the extra effort, along with active and effective management efforts and oozing competency to put the company on track to its perceived destination

In Going the distance, Infovision does not need a cliché of wisdom words nor a bookish approach towards business strategy and goal setting. It just only have to stick to three operational dimensions, Be Efficient, Be Innovative and Be Cost effective and the rest are only icing’s on the cake. And in achieving the company’s goals, it has to stick to its basic tenets which formed part of it core values, Integrity and Competency, because by these basic tenets the company derived trust from its worthy customers and confidence towards providing them the services as they expected.

Yet, the company had just turned nostalgic on the beginnings, although it is resigned to the fact that there is still so much to be done, because for all intents and purpose the company had only just begun. And the challenges ahead to be hurdled are itself a case point in the continuous thrust towards operational competency to be at par with the global standard. And the key element is on how the people behind the company respond with eagerness and determination albeit more cognizant of its role in the value chain and most importantly be more at ease on the continuous learning experience brought either by failures and success.

The various Teams of Infovision had worked its way in achieving the visions of its founder for the company, that is, to be the country’s most dynamic and innovative in the industry and by being No. 1 in the country by 2015. Everything but the victory party is set. All Teams, continue to grow in all fields and will continue to grow further within the Bigger, Better and Bolder (B3) Campaign of the company

Infovision had gone a long way yet the company is till like an infant taking its first baby steps. But those steps is being marked with so much confidence to imprint a footmark which cannot be eradicated overtime yet like a wine from the vineyard that tastes better and better as time goes by.

The imprints of the company’s footmark will be measured now and will eventually show how much distance Infovision Research System have gone and achieved over the years. It is continuously laying the foundations in line with its vision for strong, sustainable and competitive organization for generations to come.

The future maybe clear or dark skies ahead, but whatever it is, INFOVISION RESEARCH SYSTEMS, is determined to GO THE DISTANCE!!
