It was formally announced last March that the Business Processing Association of the Philippines (BPAP) will change its name to Information Technology and Business Association of the Philippines (IBPAP) to reflect to the services the organization gives.
The change was done by IBPAP to give a clear representation of the organization’s involvement in both business outsourcing and information technology sectors.
"Changing our name to IBPAP will help preserve as well as expand the Philippine industry’s brand. The new name also emphasizes the less-known fact that we provide the whole spectrum of world-class services from here, including corporate and complex services, creative processes and products, customer relations and healthcare information management, and software product development," said Benedict Hernandez Chairman of IBPAP Executive Committee.
In addition, the change into IBPAP’s name is a big leap to prove the global competitiveness of the country’s business outsourcing and information technology sector. All sectors under the umbrella of information technology, including gaming, are expected to benefit the new name of the organization.
Zeenoh Games, an independent game developer who has been in the industry for five years, creating games which features world class design and gameplay, believes that IBPAP will bring in more opportunities to the company that could help their goal of promoting Filipino’s talent in developing games for handheld devices.
