The EAM- AMIS project is part of a 5-year strategic IT plan Manila Water has developed with TCS aimed at improving asset management and transforming infrastructure to align with its corporate strategy.
“Working with TCS paved the way for us to provide innovative solutions and technological advancements to our customers while achieving operational efficiencies and productivity,” said Rodell Garcia, Chief Technology Officer, Manila Water. “We are very proud to have won these prestigious awards, as it is very special to us as a Filipino-owned company to join the ranks of MIT, NASA, Intel and UNICEF in the Top 100 list.”
“The EAM-AMIS resulted in improved operational reliability, optimized power consumption, increased manpower productivity, and traceable regulatory compliance to bring about significant changes and development in customer service, business process, operational efficiency and technology implementation,” Garcia added.
“It’s a great honor to see our key business partner Manila Water receive this outstanding recognition for projects TCS has been a major part of," said Vikram Singh, Country Manager, TCS Philippines.
