Companies have no choice: they must invest in tech
Stratpoint CEO Mary Rose dela Cruz graced top-rated business news show ANC Market Edge on September 24, 2021. Host Michelle Ong inquired about her role as Stratpoint CEO and as a technology professional in the industry, as technology becomes an even more crucial component of businesses. Here are some highlights.  

On Stratpoint as a technology provider during a pandemic

Stratpoint is a Filipino company that competes globally. We leverage the cloud, data, and software to help companies digitally transform. During a pandemic, it has become more important than ever for companies to be adaptive to change. Thus, we consider our work essential. Looking forward, we aim to continue the work and help companies not only survive but thrive and grow.  

On the readiness of MSMEs to invest in technology

It’s not a matter of readiness — companies today have no choice but to leverage tech to compete. The competition has escalated from local to global, and barriers to entry have been eliminated. Companies need help in this regard, and that’s where we come in. Stratpoint has roots in Silicon Valley. We were born-in-the-cloud and were one of the first to build in the cloud. We bring these technologies, aligned with our expertise, to the Philippine business scene.  

On the future of Stratpoint as an organization

These are exciting times for a company like Stratpoint. We’ve generated a lot of interest and have had talks with foreign investors interested in us. A listing in the PSE could be in the cards — we know that PSE is hungry for tech companies, and we are confident that we qualify. But first, we have to think about what’s best for our shareholders and, most importantly, our employees who are the ones who drive innovations.  To see the full interview, click here.
