Makati, Metro Manila – December 16, 2020 – Microsoft Philippines held its 2020 Partner Awards to recognize Microsoft Partners for their positive impact to customers every year.
NTT DATA Philippines won the “Customer Centricity Award,” in recognition for the exemplary focus and outstanding dedication to service, and empowering the digital transformation of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA). Amid the breakout of the global pandemic, NTT DATA Philippines supported OWWA in the creation and quick implementation of the DOLE-AKAP portal and COVID Tracker App, which proved to be essential services to Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) displaced by the pandemic.
This further led to NTT DATA Philippines receiving a special award called the “Para sa Bayan Award (For the Country),” which celebrates innovative solutions that helped organizations and communities respond to and recover from challenges created by the pandemic.
“We see the role we at Microsoft have to play in the Philippines’—and the world’s—recovery from COVID-19. We recognize the need, now more than ever, for purpose-driven innovation and our partners share that sense of responsibility. We’re thankful to all our partners for their incredible contributions and we look forward to even more next year and in the years to come,” said Microsoft Philippines Chief Partner Officer, Fides Ricasa.
OWWA partnered with NTT DATA Philippines to start their digital transformation journey back in 2018 and since then, OWWA was able to focus on innovation and providing better citizen services to OFWs and their families.
“At NTT DATA, upholding our values means that we do more than affirm our values – we practice them and use them as inspiration in decisions that we make. We’re truly honored to partner with OWWA and Microsoft in creating solutions that impact our society for the better,” Pocholo Reyes, CEO of NTT DATA Philippines said.
OWWA chose to partner with NTT DATA because of its proven track record of providing quality solutions to government agencies, and its commitment to their success.
“I am very happy with NTT DATA. They are very responsive and flexible when it comes to our needs. They enable us to be self-sustaining and yet always there when we need support. Their guidance and expertise and commitment to our success are the main reasons why year on year we choose to stay with NTT DATA. We can count on them and that’s what matters the most,” said Joseph Padilla, OWWA IT Advisor.
