MOBILE is the way to go as far as business is concerned in the Philippines, according to an executive of a major technology company.
“Mobile transactions in the Philippines year-on-year between 2016 and 2017 have grown 33 percent. We’re seeing more and more consumers want to do business that way,” said Jason Miller, chief strategist of commerce of Akamai Technologies (www.akamai.com), in a recent interview with BusinessMirror. The company is, according to Wikipedia, a “content delivery network and cloud-services provider” headquartered in the United States.
Miller said there’s going to be continuous growth on the use of mobile devices in the Philippines and Asia because the people in these places are quite receptive to the use of mobile technology. It’s also a fact that the daily horrendous and chaotic traffic situation, especially in Metro Manila, is contributing to the growth of mobile technology, as thousands of commuters use their mobile devices for various functions while struggling through traffic.
