Exist and Anahaw Help Retail Businesses Stay Ahead of the Curve at the 2017 Stores Asia Expo

For the second consecutive year, global consulting and IT solutions leader Exist will showcase its innovative retail platform called Anahaw at this year’s Stores Asia Expo happening on August 10-11 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.

Receiving consistent high interest from across all retail business segments for its innovative retail solution which debuted two years ago, Exist will once again give expo attendees and participants a chance to see what makes Anahaw different in what is considered to be the biggest and most important retail event in the Philippines.

“We formally launched Anahaw during the Asia Pacific Retailers Convention and Exhibition (APRCE) event and since then, we continue to receive a steady stream of inquiries from established businesses and entrepreneurs about to go forward with their big retail plans”, recalls Mike Lim, president and CEO of Exist. “We knew there was room for innovation with retail systems. What surprised us is how quick and receptive retailers are to shift and change even the systems they’ve grown accustomed with”.

Offering point-of-sale, inventory and merchandising management, CRM and marketing, and reporting and analytics capabilities in an integrated end-to-end retail solution, Anahaw allows holistic visibility across the entire retail operations where data are updated real-time, consolidated, and readily accessible.

“We’ve always believed that technology is an enabler of business”, adds Mr. Lim. “And right now, the retail landscape is undergoing a major shift that renders most systems unable to adapt, if not ineffective. We’ve built Anahaw with a flexible open architecture design for businesses to stay ahead of the curve in an ever changing retail market.”

Fully integrated and browser-based retail software platform, Anahaw help today’s retailers boost operational efficiency, increase profitability, and deliver superior customer experience. Customer satisfaction will always be king, but unlocking consumer data for analysis and insights is the key to free retailers from guesswork in order to improve, scale or pivot, even. With Anahaw’s enhanced data collection and reporting technology, it serves as a gateway of information for big data initiatives.

“The big difference this year is that we’re now joining the exhibition encouraged with the positive feedback of our new Anahaw clients”, reveals Mike. “We are humbled to hear from satisfied customers how better our system is and this is why we continue to work on improving retail technology because the time when big data and analytics becomes a core requirement is just around the store corner.”

See Anahaw in action and meet our Exist team at booth C-56, to discover how you can take your retail operations to the next level.

PEMC, With Technology Partner Exist, Implements New System to Enhance Market Processes

With a new enterprise system that facilitates timely and updated participants’ registration and trading information, PEMC moves one step closer to achieving full automation of all WESM processes geared toward a more competitive and transparent market.

Wholesale electricity spot market (WESM) operator, Philippine Electricity Market Corporation (PEMC) reaches another milestone as it introduces the Central Registration and Settlement System (CRSS) to its market participants, an enterprise system that further enhances market processes such as registration, metering, billing and settlement.

With trial operations of the WESM ongoing in Mindanao, PEMC with technology partner, Exist, continues to pursue and drive market efficiency through innovation to reduce time required for several market processes in the trading of power commodity.

“We’re excited to present our stakeholders the first glimpse of CRSS so they can see for themselves how we’re leveraging technology to upgrade our operations,” for driving efficiency and one that will benefit the entire electricity-consuming populace as well,” explains PEMC President Melinda Ocampo.

CRSS was designed and developed considering the enhanced WESM Rules that is based on a 5-minute dispatch interval. It is linked to the New Market Management System (NMMS) to collect data on prices and schedules which will be used in the settlement process.

“Enhancing the operations of the country’s platform for electricity trading is a substantial undertaking. PEMC is committed to support the government’s ongoing efforts to reform our electricity sector with market liberalization and private investment,” says Ms. Ocampo.

“As the technology partner of PEMC, Exist is committed to developing an advanced platform that promotes transparent transactions, enhances competition and efficiently drives down electricity costs,” shares Michael Lim, president and CEO of Exist.

With CRSS, PEMC enables timely supplier switching process of contestable customers under the retail competition regime possible while facilitating data exchange between the Market Operator and the trading participants.

“PEMC ushers a new period empowered by innovation and we would like our partners to embrace this change with us,” adds the PEMC President. “Being able to accomplish registration and transactions securely online is but another step but one that we are confident that our market players will surely appreciate once they switch to using this.”

Exist Holds Japanese Language Training Program for Employees

Japan and the Philippines have always maintained close economic and diplomatic ties. Today, Japan is the biggest trading partner of the Philippines and the country’s biggest source of foreign direct investments.

As the Philippine–Japanese relations continue to blossom, Japan is a strategic partner not only in terms of maritime security but also in IT outsourcing. According to JETRO, Japan is the third largest ICT Market in the world (after US and China). And with the current shortfall of workers in Japan (from software engineers to waiters) caused by an aging workforce, Japan grows more open to foreign workers. In fact, Japan has also been increasing its software, IT and back-office outsourcing services to the Philippines as reported by PSIA.

Here at Exist, we have been actively serving Japanese clients for over three years already. Our proven domain and technology expertise in providing innovative solutions and services has been a key to maintaining a good relationship with them. Exist also recognize that bridging the language barrier will help us be in a better position to answer Japan’s call for IT help.

Thus, aside from various skills training and development, Exist now offers its employees a Japanese Language Training and Certification Program to help them develop language fluency, and eventually help them adapt to the Japanese culture.

Exist employees will undergo an initial 30-hour Japanese language training but may be extended as need be to ensure enough knowledge and skills have been acquired for the JLPT certification.

The Japanese language program aims to produce Japanese-Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) passers who can communicate and work effectively with Japanese clients and partners.

Launched late 2016, these in-house Nihongo classes are conducted consecutively in two batches and held twice a week. Employees who completed the Nihongo language training program are expected to take and pass the JLPT certification exam this 2017.
