SM goes live with CIOAdvisor
After over two years of tireless marketing efforts and recently, three months of on-site software installation, testing and many enhancements, our flagship product, CIOAdvisor, a very comprehensive IT management solution, a software running as a service on a very powerful server, today, as we speak, is now officially being used by SM Retail, Inc. to support the IT operation of 40 companies under the SM Group of Retail Companies, Subsidiaries and Affiliates. After the complete roll out which will take over a period of several more months, there will more companies that will be added to the system.
Users across the country from all of these companies at various locations including the SM Supermalls will be accessing the system.
The benefits to SM, from cost savings and operational efficiency improvements alone, are enormous.
Those of you who have never been to the Philippines, the SM malls, also owned by SM where these stores are mostly located, are some of the most modern in the world. The SM Mall of Asia (also affectionally referred to by the locals as MOA), located besides the beautiful Manila Bay, for example, boasts an indoor ice-skating rink, top-rated restaurants, an IMAX theatre, numerous retail outlets familiar to North Americans and the dramatic view of the famous sunset of Manila Bay, not to mention the SM Department stores, SM Appliance Centers, SM Supermarket and Hypermarkets, many affiliates such as Watsons, Ace Hardware, Toy Kingdom, and others, just to name a few of its features.
