September 19, 2019 was a historic day for one of the leading solutions providers for SMEs (small-to-medium enterprises) in the Philippines, Mustard Seed Systems Corp. (MSSC).
In celebration of its 20th year in the business, Mustard Seed organized its first ever SME Business Trade Show, gathering almost 377 decision-makers, experts and professionals from various industries.
With the theme “Empowering SMEs for 20 Years,” Mustard Seed proved why it’s the most credible choice of fast-growing enterprises by showcasing internationally recognized firms such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, Dell, SAP, NetSuite, ABSS, Acer Academy, Cisco, Deskera, Pacific Concord, QuickBooks, ZKTeco, Honeywell, Dahua, GCash, Veritas and Sophos.
The SME Business Trade Show brought together all the business solutions that growing organizations need – from accounting and inventory, payroll, cloud technology services, ERP (enterprise resource planning) and CRM (customer relationship management) to network security, building technology, office furniture and even shipping and logistics, to mention a few.
It was a significant event where attendees learned from industry leaders, exchanged valuable insights with solutions specialists and won raffle prizes from partners and sponsors alike. MSSC also took the opportunity to thank its partners by awarding them for their unwavering trust and support.
MSSC’s success-filled journey began in 1999 when innovation was introduced through technology. Ushering in the new millennium caused widescale disruption to businesses and infrastructure and this shift in the business landscape hit the hardest on small businesses.
qThis inspired MSSC’s founders to turn MSSC as the first company in the Philippines to focus on the needs of small and medium-sized enterprises.
Mustard Seed was founded by two college friends Osler Fajardo and Dean Go who started selling off-the-shelf accounting software to accelerate the growth of SMEs in the country. Through hard work, experience, dedication and expertise, they eventually developed their own payroll system and adapted solutions which were tailor-made to support different aspects of SME operations.
For two decades and with over 22,000 corporate customers, MSSC has forged several technology partnerships, received numerous industry accolades and attracted more than 250 talented and highly dedicated employees. The company has also established branches in Manila, Cebu, Davao, Bacolod, Iloilo, Cagayan de Oro and Hong Kong. Its product line also keeps on growing and is now comprised of over 44 world-class brands and counting.
On its 20th year, Mustard Seed has embarked on a new path by entirely transforming and modernizing its workplace, officially launching its on-site and off-site training programs through Mustard Seed Academy and introducing the first and only online B2B (business-to-business) shopping website for business solutions – Mustbuy.ph.
Looking back, who would’ve thought that from a humble seed, Mustard Seed would grow into a mighty tree? A mighty tree that does not only empower small seeds to flourish through its branches of solutions, but also continuously nurtures their growth through a rewarding, long-term partnership.
