The creation of EITPH is about to be a game-changer,” EITPH President Susan Ong was quoted in a statement as saying.
“This will help us deliver new intellectual properties that will not only serve the Philippine market, but the entire Home Credit Group,” Ong added. “Furthermore, it will allow Home Credit to take advantage of the rapidly changing technology landscape and translate those changes into meaningful consumer propositions.”
Apart from the Philippines, EmbedIT also operates in India, Vietnam and Indonesia, with the same goal of setting the Home Credit business in motion.
