In an effort to widen its reach in the ASEAN Region, global service office provider Compass Offices recently opened the doors of its Makati offices, the company’s first Philippine location.
“Before I entered the company, the Philippines was already a target market. Clearly, it is a market where there is a lot of growth, with consequently a lot of demand from a range of companies. Demand is definitely strong, and we're well ahead of our growth curve at the moment,” Compass Offices marketing director Paul Gregory said.
Situated in Tower 6789 along Ayala Avenue, the new center spans 14,600 sqm and offers 235 workstations distributed among small, medium, and large offices. Basic services include phone line and unlimited business broadband connection, office furniture, dedicated client service and daily mail services, and a fully equipped pantry.
“The new Compass office in Makati, like all Compass offices worldwide, features best-in-class design and IT infrastructure, and represents our ongoing commitment to provide a truly unmatched customer experience,” Compass Offices CEO Andrew Chung mentioned.
Additional services include meeting rooms and seminar spaces, secretarial and concierge services, dedicated bandwidth, IT support and services, and printing.
Plans are already in place for a second office center to be located in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. According to Compass Offices, building a strong network within Metro Manila is considered their first priority, stressing that they are actively looking for opportunities to grow their current office portfolio in Manila.
“Compass Offices in Manila is the latest proof point in the ongoing expansion of our network across the Asia-Pacific region, helping to support our aggressive growth and ensuring we are delivering a consistent and world-class customer experience in fast growing markets like the Philippines,” Chung added.
However, they are open to the possibility of expanding beyond the Metro due to the gradual growth of business centers in certain provincial locations.
“Cebu is a possible destination. It depends on the commercial opportunities and the types of deals we strike with landlords, developers, or owners. It's possible; there's clearly a strong IT business and outsourcing there," Gregory explained.
Compass Offices is headquartered in Hong Kong and operates 40 centers in 15 cities located in 12 countries. The Philippines is the fifth ASEAN country the company has tapped, following their ventures in Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. Other countries where Compass Offices has set up workspaces are Australia, China, Japan, Kazakhstan, Poland, South Korea, and the United Arab Emirates.
“It is an honor and an exciting day for Compass Offices in the Philippines as we look forward to helping local and international businesses grow and succeed. We are here to support their businesses,” Chung stated.
