“Every day, we aspire to execute small steps to realize our big dreams and consequently to make the world a little better.” 

With this in mind, Satellite GPS Tracking and Asset Management System Corporation, an Ilonggo-based Corporation, was founded. It dares to create an exceptional impact to   community, locally and globally. Organized on August 28, 2012 (under S.E.C. Registration No. CS201226753), the Company, among others, offers Global Positioning System (GPS) tracking and monitoring solutions for all public and private transportation services, asset management of the businesses engaged in hauling, distribution, sales and marketing and mapping revolution, and the incorporation of Geographic Information Systems in Government. It also aims to deliver effective product at an affordable cost.

Behind memories of a son admiring his father that ended in tragic pain, comes the conceptualization of founding Satellite GPS in 2011. He proposed this idea for execution to his Co-founder OJ Garde, a young and enthusiastic software engineer who finds coding to be his passion. Presently, OJ is pursuing his Master’s degree in Business Administration.

Buoyed by the idea that “success is driven by the talent, vision, and leadership capabilities of the team,” in 2012, a high-caliber team for technical department was created.

Angelo Kauffman and Joemar Matulac from a big tech company have a wide experience as a Software Engineer/Application Developers. Both are increasingly involved in the design (high and low) level, implementation and deployment of Java EE and mobile application in various platforms.

The same year, Jovanni Belezza joined the team. He is the over-all In-charge of the management of finances, taxes and corporate matters as well as setting up Company’s effective accounting system, procedures and policies. He gained his five-year experience and wide technical knowledge and trainings in accounting and audit from one of the top four accounting/auditing firms in the Philippines and widely recognized as the country’s affiliate to one of the big four global auditing firms.

Alfredo Tayo is the Strategic and Financial Adviser. He is gifted with highly successful and colorful profile that involves the world of “government and universal banking” during the last 25 years.

In 2013, the development of product version 1 and 2 was almost done.  This was made possible through efforts of the company’s Technical Team and external Technical Consultant DR. Bobby Gerardo. His skills and capabilities lie in the field of Programming/Teaching using C/C++, Java, Security system, Agent and Middleware, Programming on CORBA, Web Services, Abstract Algebra, Probability and Statistics, Calculus, Differential Equations, Advanced Mathematics, Control and Fuzzy systems, Intelligent systems and mobile communications. Series of functional tests were undergone and the product was made available in the market in small scale as part of external and finalt tests. With the result applauded, the company earned loyal customers for a short period of time.

The core team was set and the product was molded in an intense heat before its grand take off.  In March 2014, it signed the formal engagement with Wong and Berstein Group a Strategic Consulting Group servicing ASEAN organizations related to Strategic Leadership, Growth in Asian Family Businesses, Organizational change and Competitive Strategies. Vice Chairman of the Board of the Company PROF. Enrique Soriano III was its appointed representative at the signing.

The opportunity ahead of the company is vast, but to seize it, it must move faster, focus and continue to transform. Its grand launching on JUNE 28, 2014 will be the day of an honest portrait of its minute steps in making a history.

Seeing the big picture and nailing the details, the company is now ready to imprint a significant story inspired by an Ilonggo!
