The 2020 Year-End Message from the CEO

As 2020 comes to a close, My family and I want to take a moment to wish you and your family a happy holiday season. May you and your family have Merry Christmas and a Happy new year! I also want to share my thoughts as we end what has been a momentous year for our company.

The year 2020 has been full of challenges: The pandemic, volcanic eruption, typhoons, unemployment, wildfires, and other unwanted events. The economic impact is not good. We’ve lost some of our clients, most of them closed their businesses. Times are hard but our company continues to survive. We gained hundreds of new clients this year. Some are remarkable ones like Laderach and Salesforce. So let’s focus on the good and positive.

Plans for 2021

Here are some of our plans for the next year, 2021.

For the Software Development Team, we will continue to migrate most of our backend to a Serverless Architecture in Amazon Web Services. The number of our customers continues to increase, as well as the usage of our application. We need to implement better scalability of our platform.

For the Software Testing Team, we will improve our testing requirements checklist and do more automated testing. This will improve our bug detection and prevention. If we have lesser bugs, we have more happy customers.

For the Data Analysis Team, we will improve our automatic data verification feature for all our solutions. We will also make our data collection process faster. This will enable us to collect and analyze more accurate data.

For the Customer Success Team, we will do more documentation and video tutorials. This will reduce the number of customers reaching out for support. We will also find ways to support our customers 24/7.

We plan to hire new teammates that can work on Front-end Development, User Interface (UI) design, and User Experience (UX) design. We want every inch of our product to be better designed and user-friendly. I believe this will be very valuable for us and our clients.

If we can all travel, we have plans to have our company outing so we can get away from all the busyness a typical workday can bring allowing ourselves to unwind and relieve stress. It will be an opportunity to learn new things about each other and discover hidden talents. This will be a great retreat for us since all of our work remotely.

Giving back

Earlier this year, there were unfortunate events and we did our part to help and give back. Recently, several Typhoons hit our country. Millions of our countrymen were affected. Through the Philippine Red Cross, our company has donated an amount for the victims of Typhoons. Our donation can help families restore their livelihood and rebuild their homes.

Also, our company started sponsoring children through Unbound, an international nonprofit organization who inspire confidence and offer opportunity and encouragement to children and families living on the margins of society. Unbound was formerly known as the Christian Foundation for Children and Aging. In the Philippines, it is known as the Saint Vincent Foundation for Children and Aging.

Sometimes, looking back is good. As our national hero, Dr. Jose Rizal said: He who does not know how to look back at where he came from will never get to his destination. Growing up, life is hard. Through Unbound, my sponsors helped me in many ways: financially, mentally, and spiritually. It started in first grade until I finish college. Codalify becoming a sponsor can be a way for us to look back, give back, keep us grounded, and appreciate all the things that we have.

There is so much work a non-profit organization puts into its mission. It is a lot of work, and it is meaningful. I know this because I was fortunate to serve as an Unbound scholar. This is one of the reasons why our company gives recurring discounts to our clients who are non-profits.

Without Unbound’s help, I probably would not be able to finish my college education, meet my wife Marykris, and have our son Jad, who both inspires me every day. My wife and I would not become co-founders of our company. Codalify would not exist today.

Thank you!

Again, may you and your family have Merry Christmas and a Happy new year! To our employees, thank you for your passion, determination, and commitment to the company. To our customers, thank you for your business and continued trust in our company. May you all enjoy the holidays – you deserve it!

5th Anniversary Message from the CEO

Today as we commemorate our 5th founding anniversary, I am very thankful for all the hard work and sacrifice of all employees at Codalify Software Development. I am very proud of the way the company has evolved and risen to the challenge even in the face of adversity. Our team has grown in skills and in numbers. Hundreds of new customers were added this year so far.

We are an organization of specialists. We make intelligent recommendations and solutions for our customers. Our decisions are based on a careful and skillful analysis of their needs. This is one of the reasons why our customers continue to do business with us for five long years.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to our customers for being with us on our journey. Codalify will not be here without your continued support and confidence in us. We will continue to serve you the best way we can.

Meanwhile, the year 2020 has been a very challenging one not only for us but also for the country and the whole of humanity. We are now facing an invisible enemy that has caused an unprecedented health crisis on a global scale, that has not only endangered and threatened human lives, but also crippled the global economy. 

We joined the government in its effort to fight COVID19. We had contributed our share by following the guidelines on social distancing and stay home policies. We do this to stop the spread of the virus. We can help save lives and tremendously help our frontline health heroes.

Giving back to the community is important. Codalify donated an amount (through the Pantawid ng Pagibig program) for our countrymen who have been profoundly affected by the quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We also donated some useful supplies to a hospital in Manila. Also, Codalify donated an amount (through GMA Kapuso Foundation) for our countrymen who were affected by the eruption of Taal Volcano earlier this year.

Therefore, I enjoin each and every one of you, as proud members of this respected organization, to give your very best in every way you can so that together we shall achieve our dreams and aspirations for a better life.

Let’s all celebrate our 5th anniversary. Once again, congratulations and happy anniversary. May God Almighty bless us, and keep us and our family safe always. To God be the glory!

4th Anniversary Message from the CEO

Codalify Software Development is extremely proud to be marking our 4th anniversary – a significant milestone that few startup companies achieve. Time sure does fly by. There have been many challenges and rewards that we have learned from. I appreciate them all.

It is particularly gratifying to be celebrating this anniversary as the future for our software products looks so bright. Our customers continually show their confidence in us by giving us their business, by sharing new opportunities and by recommending us to others. 

I am grateful for that confidence and we will continue to do all we can to earn it. That confidence is possible because of our talented and dedicated employees. They do it with an extremely high level of quality, consistency and efficiency in mind. Those efforts and continued dedication gives us all reasons to be excited about our future.

Reflecting on the 4 years of existence of this company, I’d like to acknowledge my wife for believing in me even years before Codalify was officially founded. She supported and helped me grow this company. Our sacrifice, time, dedication, knowledge and commitment are the first foundation of Codalify.

To all our employees, customers, family and friends – I thank you for your continued support and dedication to Codalify Software Development. We hope to be able to share the celebration of our 4th Anniversary with you at Cristina Villas Antipolo on July 6, 2019, 10:00 AM.

Here’s to another 4 fantastic years!
