Margie Grey from her column Not Business As Usual
Philippine Star, B7-Business March 17, 2005
After a close-to-two-year IT hiatus, former Oracle Phils. Country head Bernard Yu is back in the game - this time, as vice - chairman and chief executive officer of local software company, Information Managers, Inc.
Infoman is one of two local distributors of QAD solutions. (The other one is an Ayala subsidiary).
Basically, California - based QAD offers the same solutions as the big boys with brand recalls but, of course, at a more affordable price and with better training and after - sales service.
Mr. Yu, who not only help build the Oracle business in the country but also gave the company a more humane face through corporate responsibility projects, is focusing on three segments in the manufacturing industry, one of which is food and beverage.
Infoman's marketing strategy is to not to target the country's top 500 companies but to target the next 500 and below. And, hey, if the top 500 would like to do business with Infoman, so much the better.
