TCS’ transformational solution will help Converge reduce complexity in operations, improve customer and employee experience, drive product innovation, enable faster service delivery, and support its growth aspirations.

“Converge is implementing our growth strategy within our existing service areas and into new provinces such as those in Visayas and Mindanao. As we embark on this expansion, we cannot sacrifice what matters to us most - our customers. We must ensure that our operations and internal processes can scale to address future growth so that our customers continue to experience better,” said Dennis Anthony Uy, CEO and Co-founder, Converge ICT Solutions, Inc. “We see TCS as the right partner in achieving this goal as they can provide the best-in-class platform and experience in localized deployments, end-to-end capabilities, and a single point of accountability.”

We will use our deep domain knowledge, expertise in digital technologies, and investments in innovation and intellectual property to help Converge accelerate their transformation journey and achieve their aspiration to be a world-class ICT provider that empowers people, businesses, and the nation. Our digital business platform will speed up deployment, improve user adoption, enhance customer experience and provide a competitive edge,” said Shiju Varghese, Country Head, TCS Philippines.
