Converge, Cebu-based Mobile Apps & Software Developer’s “Fiber” Fan Favorite – Manila Bulletin | Hot Mobile Press

In the IT world, there is no more intense debate than the battle of operating systems (OS) – Macintosh vs. Windows. Loyalists of the two brands boast of their respective strengths – Windows is considered the best in gaming, while Mac is a favorite of programmers and designers. In internet services, fiber-only broadband operator Converge faces similar competition and has become a preferred provider for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the IT sector.

Take the case of Increment Technologies Inc., a burgeoning mobile app software and development company based in Cebu. For its sizeable needs – hosting, uploading source code, and downloading massive amounts of data – Converge meets its needs and then some.

“Anytime we have code in the local environment, we push it to the live servers that we have installed in the repositories for other developers to easily access. In terms of deploying the system (which is on the server side) we need good uninterrupted internet considering we are transferring lots of code and huge amounts of data,” noted Kenneth Canales, President and CEO of Increment Technologies.

Increment Technologies Inc. is a web and mobile development services company serving local and US, European and Asian clients. As a local technology start-up, Increment sees many opportunities arising from the pandemic as more companies embrace digitization and are now developing their own applications. Canales and his team are able to take advantage of these opportunities thanks to the reliable connectivity that Converge brings to his business.

“There are many opportunities in technology today, especially for software development. We are fortunate to be a Filipino company offering this service to customers around the world. Demand has allowed us to hire and create jobs amid the pandemic,” Canales shared.

Pure fiber broadband not only enables Increment Technologies to deliver its services to its global customers; It also allows the company to innovate and develop their own products like PayHiram.

PayHiram, a mobile financial services app, acts as a virtual wallet and caters to OFWs who regularly send remittances to their family in the Philippines. PayHiram’s services include money transfers, local and international transfers, withdrawals and payments.

Increment also played a role in the 2020 pandemic effort when it ran a project with local government as part of its contact tracing efforts. It developed the BirdsEye app available locally in Cebu. Birds Eye enabled location matching and mapping, transport tracking, transport management and patient recording – all essential functions for living without contact during the pandemic.

In these projects, a stable and strong internet connection was paramount, especially for app demonstrations.

“We are constantly communicating with our local and global customers. Dapat talaga You need a reliable connection so that there are no interruptions during your discussions, application presentations and demonstrations. When we present our projects to the customer, we have to be sure that there are no interruptions. Especially when we have investment presentations with PayHiram, we need to make sure all our connections are good and Converge provides them,” added Mr. Canales.

For software and app developers, a consistently strong connection is at the heart of their business, and Converge’s all-fiber connection is becoming the connection of choice for this thriving community.
