Innovation in all channels

The rapid digital transformation affects all industries. With more products and more complex services, the demands are increasing for a flexible customer service that can serve all channels on the customer’s terms. At the same time, the customer experience itself has become an increasingly important way for companies to differentiate from the competition.

More and more customer interactions take place in digital channels. Digitalization is leading us into a new phase where customer service and the customer experience become even more important. This shift is happening quickly. One fourth of Transcom’s turnover is related to non-voice activities, and that number will only increase. We serve customers regardless of channel. And the customer has to have the same great experience, irrespective of whether it is over the phone, chat, email or some other channel.

Transcom is working actively toghether with our clients to come up with new innovations, like implementing smarter technical solutions or simplifying and speeding up processes while also educating and developing our staff. I invite you to read more about the solutions we are developing with our clients in the Hello Transcom magazine.

Transcom Color Run for Fun 2016

Bacolod Color Run

The most colorful event just made it to Transcom Philippines – Transcom Color Run for Fun 2016. A three-part race that happened last May started in Bacolod on May 14, followed by Iloilo the next weekend – May 24; finally getting to Metro Manila last May 29. More than 4,000 employees of Transcom coming from its 5 sites (Bacolod, Iloilo, Mandaluyong (EDSA), Pasig and ROHQ) participated in this grand event.

In initiating this run, Transcom aimed to engage employees and unite them in pursuit of a singular goal– in this case, being healthy. Transcom promotes healthy living and wellness among its employees, and this run was a great start for this campaign. Since Transcom puts much value in family, friends and family members of employees were welcomed to the event

Each participant was given a kit which included a race shirt, a race bib, sunshades, a sweat band, a string bag, a water jug, temporary tattoos, and of course the colored powders!

Before the gun start, our dear sponsors and partners prepared tons of freebies as giveaways for the participants. Security Bank gave away free ice cream in scoops, an energy drink company gave-away free samples to help the runners stay refreshed. There were lots of biscuits, sweets and even some lozenges. Right before the run, Zumba sessions helped the participants warm up and stretch.

Splashes of colors were everywhere – on the streets and on the runners. Getting all colored too were the members of the Philippine Volcanoes who joined the Manila Leg. Happy, sweaty and colored runners came back in less than an hour and enjoyed food and refreshments plus music from the invited DJ’s.

The race was categorized into a 3K and a 5K run. Winners of each leg received cash prizes worth:

  • 3K run

    • 1st Finisher – PHP 5,000H

    • 2nd Finisher – PHP 2,500

    • 3rd Finisher – PHP 1,500

  • 5K run

    • 1st Finisher – PHP 10,000

    • 2nd Finisher – PHP 7,000

    • 3rd Finisher – PHP 5,000

The prizes were not limited to the race winners. Transcom also hosted raffle draws wherein all participants had a chance to win gift certificates, hotel accommodations and gadgets!

Employees really enjoyed the run and had so much fun.  Happy smiles filled the venue and posts they uploaded on Social Media showed their unique perspective on the event.

Transcom joining the IACCM’s EMEA Annual Forum 2016

Together with Martín Sarasúa, I had the pleasure of joining the Annual EMEA Conference organized by the International Association for Contract and Commercial Management (IACCM), which was held in Rome on May 9-11.

The title of the event this year was “The Year of Transformation: Maximizing Value through Collaborative and Agile Relationships“. There were interesting workshops and interactive sessions around the simplification of contract models, cloud computing, e-signature of contracts, the typical pitfalls when negotiating a contract or trends foreseen in the future of contracting, among others.

The event hosted around 200 professionals working in the Commercial and Contract Management role in major corporations like Atos, Fujitsu, Huawei, Ericsson, Accenture, Capgemini, CSC, Airbus, HP, IBM, Shell etc. Martin and myself had the opportunity to interact with peers from other organizations to better understand their concerns, reasoning, business needs and experiences when working on different contract aspects.  This conference gave us a great opportunity to catch up on market trends in commercial and contract management, e.g. when facing new contract negotiations or when supporting our teams internally as part of the process to build new business relationships with Customers or Suppliers.
