In an age wherein technology has become an almost inseparable part of life, a lot of businesses rely on software solution providers to enhance their capabilities. From purchasing raw materials, to actual transactions with customers. In a world that dominated by many giants, there exists a handful of startups which aim to make a mark in the industry. Quadrant Alpha Technology Solutions, or more commonly known as QAlpha, is one of them. But what makes this company stand out among the others? Let’s find out in this feature article.
QAlpha was founded back in 2012 by a Filipino-Chinese entrepreneur, Mr. Ash Co Kehyeng as a Philippine-based software development company with an office of 5 computers and a handful of top-notch programmers.
Mr. Kehyeng’ drive and motivation came from his love and passion for using technology as a means to empower businesses to the next level.
I started the software company as I genuinely love how technology can help businesses. I saw that with the help of IT, business operations get easier to manage. People work faster, managed better and work more diligently with IT by their side.
During his days as the founder of City Delivery (now Food Panda), he saw the need for a company which could provide complete cost-effective business solutions through the use of software and relevant technologies.
I was also the founder of City Delivery, (now Food Panda) the leading multi-restaurant delivery services in the Philippines, which was acquired by a global e-commerce group. At that time, I couldn’t find a reliable IT company that was cost-effective and can give good after- sales support and so, this is the reason why I founded my own IT company. I appreciate the benefit of technology and how it enables, supports and grows businesses.
QAlpha was established to do that. Answer the industry’s need of a company which provides top-notch service and project management.
Fast forward to today, and the company has already grown leaps and bounds. They now offer a broad spectrum of turn-key end-to-end solutions. These solutions range from consultancy, BPO, and network administration and maintenance. They also do software development, system integration, and hardware procurement and distribution.
The company has leveled up its portfolio by becoming involved with many industries. These include retail, food and beverage, manufacturing, logistics, real estate, and government.
Some of the systems that they have developed include:
- Human Resource Information Systems
- Warehouse and Inventory Management Systems
- Time-Keeping and Payroll Systems
- Inventory Management Systems
- Purchasing Management Systems
- Billing and Sales Management Systems
- Customer Relationship Management Systems
What’s more, these systems are further enhanced by integration with technologies and features. Examples of which are Cloud-Based Systems, Multi-User Support, Platform Optimization, and Mobile Integration.
QAlpha also prides itself in developing custom solutions to tailor fit the needs of a particular client. Their portfolio in this area also includes a Movie Ticketing System and a Restaurant Reservation System, and Telephony for Call Centers.
Testament to the quality of the company’s solutions are its clients which include Lily’s Peanut Butter, Doctor Leather, Gaisano Malls Davao and Cebu, Serenitea, Domino’s Pizza, and Vikings Buffet. Here’s a testimonial by leading retail product, Doctor Leather.
Quadrant Alpha helped in automating our manual processes which led to faster turnaround time for operations and upgrading our customer’s experience. The system they developed for us was easy to use by our staff as well which makes our expansion easier. Working with them is also very easy as they have good client service and fast response to our concerns. I highly recommend them for businesses that want to be competitive.
So, to answer our question earlier, what sets QAlpha apart from its competitors is its unwavering commitment to understanding the client’s needs on a business level, and transforming them to solutions that greatly benefit the business.
What’s in Store for the Future
QAlpha envisions itself into becoming a company that will place the Philippines in the map of software development.
We believe that by solid skills in development coupled with business expertise, we can help businesses in scalability and efficiency through the right technology.
