When you work with us, you’ll be in great company.
Getting to the ‘A-Ha’ Moment.
Prior to speaking with Efren & Nerissa, offshoring wasn’t on our radar. At the same time, we weren’t using our human resources as well as we should have and it was costing us money. Even though we were initially hesitant about the whole offshoring thing, we decided to take the leap almost a year ago. It’s possibly one of the best decisions we’ve made.
From the get-go, the FiltaGlobal team have been nothing but honest and supportive. They talked us through the pros and cons of offshoring in realistic terms, and never pretended it was something it’s not. The recruitment process was very thorough, and they really helped us build and manage the relationships between our people in Sydney and Manila. Every step of the way, we’ve been supported by Efren & Nerissa here in Australia, and Fred & Vivien in Manila. We know that whenever we need help, guidance, support or advice, the FiltaGlobal guys are only a phone call away.
We now have two staff in Manila with FiltaGlobal, and have plans to grow. By finding the right people, giving them clear objectives and making them feel part of our business, we’ve been able to change the way we do business and ultimately become more profitable.

With FiltaGlobal, you’re in safe hands.
When working on projects, I like to move quickly. Because of this, I need people around me who can quickly understand what I’m trying to achieve and help me get to where I’m going. I was originally referred to FiltaGlobal by someone I trust, and it became apparent to me that they understood where I was coming from.
Working with Efren & Fred at FiltaGlobal has been great. They found me a fantastic Developer, Emmanuel, who was able to complete his first project in a very tight timeframe to the spec I needed. The guys were always there when I needed them (even outside of hours and on weekends), and would always make sure they knew what Emmanuel was up to. They also helped me manage the relationship with Emmanuel, and gave me the guidance to get the best out of him. I’ve got more projects coming up, and I know I can rely on Emmanuel to get the job done to the standard required.
Thanks again for coming through for me! I know we’ll be working together for a long time and I’ll be growing my offshore team with FiltaGlobal.

Learning to Think Differently.
Being in the fast moving digital industry, sometimes it’s hard to find the right resources to achieve the results we need. Traditionally, we’ve always looked in our own backyard for new employees, but recently it’s become harder to find the right people with the right skills and attitude. So having worked with Efren & Nerissa for five years, offshoring staff with FiltaGlobal was a no brainer.
We started with one developer almost two years ago and within 8 months we had grown our team to 4. Since we started offshoring, we’ve been able to find the skills we’ve needed at a price that was friendlier for a business of our size. What’s been helpful is that Efren & Nerissa are always available to chat, often pop in our offices for coffee and have an intimate understanding of our business and our plans. On top of that, Fred has been our eyes and ears on the ground in Manila, and is always happy to help whenever we’ve needed anything for our guys.
FiltaGlobal have helped guide us through the offshoring maze, and with their strategic & recruitment expertise and cultural awareness, have helped build value in our business. We couldn’t have done it without them.
It’s great that our offshore team are part of two families – Ripe & FiltaGlobal. The FG guys know our team members, they skype with them, take them out to karaoke when they’re in the Philippines and sincerely care that our staff are having fun, feel included and developing their careers.

How to make the life of a small business owner a lot easier.
As a small business owner, I’ve spent a lot of time working in my business. In the past, I’d spend my days seeing clients and fixing IT problems, and nights trying to catch up with the day’s administration and other business activities. It was becoming increasingly hard for me to keep on top of client demands, converting new clients and spending time with my wife and kids. I’ve tried getting resources to assist before, but they ended up being too expensive and not very effective.
As FiltaGlobal’s IT services provider, I got to see firsthand the power of offshoring, and how important the right person, in the right role with the right support can be. So when I realised I needed a Personal Assistant, I decided to take a punt on offshoring through FiltaGlobal.
Throughout the whole process, Nerissa & Efren were there to assist me with making the right decisions. Nerissa even had me over for dinner so I could do interviews after work, and it was great that she was in the interviews with me as I appreciated having someone else’s insight into the candidates. On top of that, Fred & Vivien have made Kristine feel like part of the FiltaGlobal family. I know my staff are being made to feel comfortable and happy, making them productive and engaged. This has really put my mind at ease.
