Bayad won the Bronze Stevie Award in the Innovation in Rebranding category, where it articulated its brand transformation in an essay entry titled "Meralco's Bayad Center to Bayad: How a traditional bills payment brand authority in the Philippines adapted to the digital age."

Transforming the Digital Financial Experience

With technology continuing to develop in leaps and bounds, and with COVID-19 pandemic still in the equation, businesses big and small were pushed to undergo digital transformation to automate their services for their customers.

Through the use of real-time electronic payments and user-friendly mobile applications, transactions like bills payment, money remittances, and online shopping can now be done in the comfort of one’s home – something that Bayad makes possible. With the main goal of connecting, empowering, and providing customers with seamless relevant, and secured financial services, Bayad has aligned its initiatives with the goal of Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas in achieving 50% increase in digital financial transactions in 2023.

In line with this, the company has rebranded itself as a "Bigger, Better, and Younger Bayad" to introduce more payment channels and services, and to capture a significant chunk of the younger and internet-savvy market.

Anchored on its “Pay Anywhere” stance, Bayad has clinched and maintained partnerships with various billers, utility companies, government institutions, and remittance companies, enabling a network of establishments, agents, online and mobile applications, financial institutions, cooperatives, and fintech companies.

Bayad has also opened opportunities to entrepreneurs to generate additional income for their existing businesses through its franchise model, enabling the company to receive various recognitions for its service excellence.

Scaling Innovation for the Future

According to Bayad, constant innovation is the linchpin in their development as a fintech institution. They continue to launch new and supportive services and solutions for customers.

This solution can be embedded within the business feature of the Bayad App, where business owners can register and manage their accounts, enabling them to become Bayad Agents, offering Bayad’s financial services in their respective communities.

  • Lastly, Bayad has also successfully launched Bayad Express, a one stop shop payment solution that is also embedded in a merchant’s website or mobile app, which enables customers to access other billers of Bayad, apart from the merchant’s primary payment offerings.

As Bayad continues to create positive strides by maintaining dominance in payments, it advances its cyber security measures, enabling the company to obtain its Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard Certification (PCIDSS), an information security standard for all business entities that handle card information.

With its ongoing efforts in security compliance, Bayad also utilizes fraud detection tools making them confident in expanding its user base as it continues to develop value-added services and additional revenue streams to community establishments and online businesses.

OfficePartners360 Put Their Values Into Action for Workforce Needs During COVID Pandemic

Posted by Amanda Del Signore on Wed, Nov 30, 2022 @ 02:52 PM
OP360 Logo_APSA22

Stevie-winner OfficePartners360 (OP360) is a specialized outsourcing company focused on providing custom back office and customer service solutions for small to medium-sized businesses and Fortune 500 companies.

US-owned and managed, OP360 was founded in 2006 by entrepreneurs with strong experience in technology, HR, IT, and finance. Today, they are a full-service, fast-growing solutions provider with thousands of global employees and clients ranging from mid-sized corporations toFortune 500 firms.

Because the owners have been clients of offshore and outsourced services, they understand first-hand the benefits of outsourcing. For clients who require personnel, OP360 ensures the outsourced team not only performs but also operates as an extension of the client’s existing teams with the same shared values, training, and culture. In addition, OP360 operates out of premium facilities in tier-two cities thereby reducing client costs.

Principles in Action
OP360 leaders are committed to building and maintaining a transformative, high-performing culture. They hope to do this through effective communication, genuinely caring about their team (and the communities where they live and work), ensuring rapid career development for strong performers, and providing well-above-average compensation. Their methods seem to work, as they consistently have an exceptionally high management retention rate.

When the pandemic thrust the world into a state of disarray, leaders in the Philippines office responded by tapping into OP360’s core values of compassion and cooperation, as well as its ability to stay agile and adaptable to changing circumstances in order to guarantee employee health and well-being. 

By March 2020, 99% of staff were successfully pivoted to remote work. Computers and portable WiFi kits were sent home with employees, and those who did not have a suitable home office were housed in hotels from where they could work. A corporate telecommuting package was also offered for staff to have wired internet at home. Remote IT support was available 24/7, and when needed, IT staff were deployed to homes to swap out or repair damaged assets. A resiliency hub was also maintained to cater to employees who, due to emergencies, were unable to continue working remotely. 

When onsite work resumed, staff were shuttled to and from the offices to limit exposure to the commuting public. Free meals were provided to limit the need to leave the offices during breaks. A stringent office sanitation and disinfection schedule was maintained; more staff were certified in first aid and safety; and additional clinic nurses were hired to ensure safety. A mental health program was also launched to support employees’ mental well-being. Employees who tested positive for Covid-19 were given paid time off and received a care kit.

As soon as vaccines were available in 2021, OP360 rolled-out its vaccination campaign, “Together & for Each Other.” Joining a public-private venture, OP360 offered free vaccination to employees and their dependents. Within 3 months, 78% of staff were fully inoculated through the company’s efforts, exceeding the Philippines’ then-national average. The company also extended its care externally by distributing face masks and vitamins to 5 beneficiary-schools of its philanthropic arm, OP360 Cares. 

While the situation exacerbated vulnerabilities, OP360 never stopped operating with the health and safety of its community in mind.

OfficePartners360 won a Silver Stevie Award for Most Valuable Corporate Response to COVID-19 in the 2022 Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards.

Nurch Childcare Loyalty Rewards Program Benefits Families, Care Centers, and Broader Community

Posted by Amanda Del Signore on Fri, Nov 04, 2022 @ 05:16 PM

Stevie-winner Nurch is looking to enhance the stability and consistency of learning environments in the Australian childcare market through a loyalty rewards program for families.Nurch Team, APSA22

Nurch founders Brent Thompson, Glenn Noy, and Kara Smyth have over 15 years of experience in childcare each. They all agreed that the common promotional strategies used by childcare centers are antiquated, and the strategies typically only benefit a new family, never an enrolled family who has been continuously supporting the childcare center.

With this in mind, they developed and launched a loyalty rewards program in 2019 that would not only help centers increase enrollments but also help centers retain their most loyal families through rewards. With no sign-up fee, there are only benefits for families in this program as well.

How It Works
Partnering childcare centers invite families to sign up for the Nurch loyalty program at no cost. The high-tech platform synchronizes with each center’s software to automatically download the details of enrolled families, including attendance records and fees. After signing up, families automatically earn 1 point for every $1 they pay to the childcare center. Loyalty reward points can be redeemed at leading Australian retailers.

This model organically attracts new families to participating childcare centers and helps centers maintain current enrollment. More consistent enrollment allows centers to better plan for fluctuations and frees their time to focus on enhancing the quality of childcare services. This contributes to better consistency of care and more stability for children, providing a better environment to improve their learning, development, and wellbeing.

Nurch is 100% compliant with childcare subsidies and Australian consumer laws. It is constantly updated and automated to meet government regulations, laws, and changes. With the Nurch platform and collaborative model, children, families, childcare centers, and the broader community all benefit.

Growth and Values
Nurch takes an ethical and transparent business approach by providing a Childcare funding declaration. Center groups can do their own risk assessment and have fair terms and conditions that allow centers to freely operate. For example, they have a 2-year agreement term, but centers can cancel anytime.

In addition, Nurch aims to promote diversity and healthy labor practices. Employees are respected and provided with the flexibility they need to balance work and home life. Employees are given the option of where they prefer to work and what hours. Career development is highly supported by adjusting roles to specific interests.

Since receiving their Stevie awards, Nurch has now assisted over 8,000 families and more than 50 childcare centers across Australia in retaining and growing enrollments. 

In a recent study, Nurch found that 67% of members would choose a Nurch-partnered childcare center or remain enrolled at their current center due to the Nurch program. Also, 80% of users saw more value in the Nurch program compared with leading retailer loyalty rewards programs. Nurch is currently on track to partner with 300 centers and have over 30,000 members by 2025. 

Nurch won a Gold Stevie Award for Most Innovative Startup of the Year – Business Service Industries, and a Silver Award for Most Innovative Startup of the Year – Business Product Industries in the 2022 Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards.

Aggregate Farming Platform Empowers Small Farmers in India at No Cost

Posted by Amanda Del Signore on Tue, Nov 01, 2022 @ 09:38 AM

Stevie-winner Agribid Private Limited is a farmer-friendly business-to-business marketplace specializing in the sale and purchase of agri-commodities with every stakeholder along the agribusiness chain, including farmers, traders, corporate consumers, and global buyers.

undefined-1Launched in late 2020 by Ashutosh Mishra, Manoj Suvarna, and Chetan Suvarna, it is their company vision to be the most preferred marketplace for agri-products globally. Since launching, 300 farmer producer organizations (FPOs) have signed up to benefit from Agribid’s business model.

Agribid sees that the plight of small farmers across India is due to fragmented land holding. In the market, a small farmer does not have any control on price—not due to a lack of trading options—but in accordance with the concept of economies of size: the average cost per unit of production decreases as the size of the farm increases. With an average land holding of 2 to 3 acres each, a small farmer can produce a crop of 2 to 5 MT. Such a low quantity would never interest a big trader who is looking for 1 truck load (10 MT) minimum size for optimizing logistical costs.

According to Agribid, the solution is aggregation. Using their integrated platform, they seek to empower farmers by aggregating them in order to achieve the best price from buyers across India and globally.

In addition, as a company policy, Agribid does not charge farmers for their services—aggregation will be free for life to all participating farmers. In fact, the company has committed to sharing a portion of revenue with the FPOs who have joined. Agribid expects the farmers to utilize these extra funds to improve farmer welfare, machinery, and storage facilities.

Agribid plans to expand the Indian base from 11 to 23 states and its global presence from three countries to nine. Since winning their Stevie Award, they have been named one of the 20 Most Promising Startups to Watch in 2022 by Business Connect. 

Agribid won a Bronze Stevie Award for Most Innovative Startup – Business Services Industry in the
2022 Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards.

The Power of Cultural History in Cross-Media Marketing

Posted by Amanda Del Signore on Wed, Oct 26, 2022 @ 11:00 AM

Stevie-winner BCW is the global communications agency built to move people. BCW partners with clients in the B2B, consumer, corporate, crisis management, healthcare, public affairs, purpose and technology sectors to set strategic direction for all communications and create powerful and unexpected ideas that earn attention.

BCW_logo_APSA22Through an “earned-plus” offer—earned media plus paid media, creative technology, data, AI and an expanding suite of innovative capabilities—BCW moves people with power and precision to move its clients forward.

One such client is Chinese laser projection specialist Formovie. Formovie planned to launch its “T1” flagship laser projector in an effort to reinforce its leading position in the highly competitive China laser market. Formovie and BCW came together to develop a comprehensive marketing campaign, which earlier this year won a Bronze Asia-Pacific Stevie Award for Innovation in Cross-Media Marketing.

Considering the wide array of existing product choices and increasingly discerning consumers, Formovie faced some big challenges in building a unique product story and developing effective touch points with consumers. What they did was initiate a cross-media launch campaign that aimed to:

  • Exposure goal—generate 30 million impressions total.
  • Engagement goal—engage with 40 key media & influencers in the consumer projection segment with positive endorsement on product experience.
  • Business goal—help with T1 product sales on e-commerce platforms.

According to research, more than 60% of potential laser projector consumers are enthusiastic about an “exquisite lifestyle” that integrates history, art, symphony, etc. Based on this insight, instead of a traditional press event, Formovie launched a cross-over campaign titled “Breathing life to Dunhuang” integrating imagery and connotations of one of the most famous cultural relics in China: The Mogao Caves in Dunhuang. Dunhuang was the first trading town reached by foreign merchants entering Chinese-administered territories along the Silk Road from the west. The city is the site of the renowned Mogao Caves, which form a system of 500 Buddhist temples, some of which were dug out as early as AD366, which were designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1987.

Dunhuang was the first trading town reached by foreign merchants entering Chinese-administered territory from the west. The city is the site of the renowned Mogao Caves, which were designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1987.

At its foundation, the marketing campaign was a tech-centric, projection-based mini-art show. Commercial laser shows are often used for illumination projects like this; instead, Formovie’s new cinema-pro quality, consumer laser projector T1 was utilized to reproduce the historical relics of frescos from Dunhuang.

By merging the most advanced laser technology with traditional Chinese culture, the team created an appealing product story across media channels, including traditional media, digital platforms, advertising, as well as e-commerce channels.

As a cultural icon with nation-wide recognition, Dunhuang successfully helped attract attention from audiences with large-scale advertising placement. Dunhuang images were also utilized to produce the boot screen picture, product packages, and a scarf gift as exclusive incentives to boost sales. Riding on the momentum generated from media and influencers, the topic “digital representations of Chinese cultural heritage with T1” led to larger scale exposure and discussion as a result.

The campaign was a success, surpassing all targets:

  • Exposure goal— 32 million impressions were generated from all media platforms; search engine data show that the number of searches about T1 increased 1,378% within a month.
  • Engagement goal— More than 60 key influencers in the consumer projection industry shared articles, videos, or posts with positive endorsement, generating 100K+ engagement.
  • Business goal— Dunhuang-themed packages and gifts helped drive sales by more than $500k within 24 hours on Tmall (formerly Taobao Mall), a Chinese-language website for business-to-consumer online retail, operated in China by Alibaba Group.

The integrated campaign “Breathing life to Dunhuang” created a unique story of how traditional Chinese culture from centuries ago can be revitalized today by innovative Formovie products. Cross-media approaches including traditional media, digital platforms, advertising, as well as e-commerce channels were utilized to communicate with audiences throughout their decision-making journey with excellent results.

BCW won a Bronze Award for Innovation in Cross-Media Marketing in the 2022 Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards.

Aussie Broadband’s Self-Service Customer Portal and App Provide Convenience While Easing Burden on Support Staff

Posted by Amanda Del Signore on Mon, Oct 24, 2022 @ 05:00 AM

Stevie-winner Aussie Broadband is a rapidly growing, Australian internet service provider with a reputation for providing high-quality internet and transparent customer service. In 2020, Aussie Broadband launched Carbon, a free self-service portal that allows customers to control all of their Aussie Broadband services from one central location.

Carbon is designed to take the delays and confusion out of ordering new services, with many products and services able to be ordered directly in the platform and with transparent pricing displayed.

Rather than wait for months to order and receive new business services, Carbon users can access free quotes, place their own orders, and control everything from hardware dispatch to service activation, all from a central portal. Carbon enables businesses to turn on a service at any location where NBN (Australia’s National Broadband Network) has been before; activation is extremely fast thanks to Aussie's clever, efficient integration with NBN's systems. 

Aussie Broadband LogoCustomers using Carbon can now:

  • Purchase and customize their products and services online, including internet services, data center connections, MPLS networks, SD-WAN networks, hosted PBX and more. 
  • Manage and test their services at scale, allowing them to create simple internet services, while managing billing, technical support and ordering. 
  • Apply configurations to their services within seconds, as well as take advantage of single-click tests and diagnostics, real-time monitoring of bandwidth and data use, and centralized notifications, billing and support. 
  • See immediately if there are any known outages affecting their service.

In addition to simplifying and shortening the ordering process, Carbon also provides users with a bevy of features for managing existing services, as well as handling billing and troubleshooting issues without the need to call customer support. Users can apply their preferred custom configurations to business telco services, which is especially useful for enterprise customers looking to build and manage their own networks and cloud platforms.

Aussie Broadband engineered Carbon to tackle some of the biggest pain points experienced by business and enterprise customers, and the company believes they are the first telco in Australia to offer account features and self-service at this level.

Carbon is not the only tool that Aussie Broadband offers to customers to enhance the customer experience. The MyAussie App offers a range of innovative features for customers that had never been seen before from a major player in the Australian telco industry. Among many other features, MyAussie offers customers the ability to “kick” their internet connection all the way back to the network, which would have required assistance from a technical support staff previously.

Another tool developed by Aussie Broadband is The Proactive Fault Detector, an in-house designed and developed software that automatically detects faults and proactively resolves them before a customer contacts Aussie's support team. They found that more than 50% of dropout and speed faults were identifiable before the customer contacted support. One of the main benefits is that it significantly reduces both the duration and volume of calls, giving their support staff more time to focus on better customer experience. If a fault is detected with a customer’s connection, the system begins running troubleshooting tests and attempts to restore services immediately. The automated fault identification system is currently identifying and triaging over 200 faults per day. 

Since winning their Stevie Award, Aussie Broadband has completed the acquisition of Brisbane Telecommunications and IT solutions provider Over the Wire (ASX:OTW) for $344 million dollars. In addition, they have signed a 3-year deal with Mitsubishi Motors Australia to provide Enterprise NBN and on-net services to its corporate and regional locations across the country.

Aussie Broadband won the Gold Stevie Award for the Innovative Use of Technology in Customer Service - Telecommunications Industries in the 2022 Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards.
