As a tech expert who worked abroad for many years, it was not surprising that the very first system David Almirol Jr. developed was for overseas Filipino workers.
Banking on his Computer Science degree from the University of Cordilleras, he widened and strengthened his knowledge while working side-by-side with a team of international experts in the war-torn Middle East.
Upon returning to the Philippines, his first enterprise – a computer shop – did not work. Then the owner of the agency for his job application abroad asked him to do the manpower services system for the company. He did it, was paid fairly for it, and the first client was satisfied.
It has been 10 years since, and Almirol, with his partners, developed platforms benefitting millions of end users and thousands of companies across industries.
At the 11th Asia CEO Awards in October, MultiSys reached a milestone when it bagged the Most Innovative Company of the Year.
