Systemantech: Imparting IT Services through 'ProTeIn'
There is more to outsourcing than mere cost cutting; it frees up company’s valuable resources to focus on what they are most competent with and for what matters more: the core business. By outsourcing IT services, enterprises can avail quality services from some of the industry’s top technology service providers in order to optimize operational costs and still bear high returns. It's ironic that even though outsourcing serves as an important function, enterprises are yet to accrue substantial benefits and reap the huge profits that would be otherwise impossible to achieve.
In most cases, outsourcing service providers are either manpower agencies or value added resellers, while some lack the necessary competencies to manage operations efficiently. Others fail to comply with the mandatory government regulations on employment benefits which results in poor services and higher turnover rate due to dissatisfied personnel.
Systemantech ensures that the client has visibility on the current state of IT Service operations and can analyze and recommend on how to improve it
Understanding these shortcomings in the outsourcing industry was not difficult for the founder of Systemantech. Roberto Ilagan, President & CEO, Systemantech explains, “In our country there are many IT Service providers, small and large, who focus either on cost factor or on quality. Systemantech employs a balanced approach wherein we neither compromise on quality nor overlook the cost factor.”
Leveraging his years of experience in IT industry, he started providing services which are customer centric. Roberto comments, “We measure our success not by generating more revenues but by improving our customer’s IT service operation and by ensuring our personnel’s professional development.”
