Through his sense of urgency and innovation, Caguimbal’s vision led Xperto to be at the forefront of the digital transformation of professional organizations in the Philippines. Their three core services, namely, Xperto Event Management System (XEMS) are used for events through automated registration and benefits higher attendee engagement, fast and secure payments as well as networking opportunities. Second is the Xperto Association Management System (XAMS) which simplifies member registration and management. Third is the Xperto Credentialing Management System (XCMS) which streamlines the process of applying for and issuing credentials while leveraging blockchain technology to enhance security.
Currently, Xperto is expanding its services to further professional societies in the health, business, natural, and built environments. Its plan is to service other professional communities, sororities, fraternities, and alumni associations. In fact, Xperto achieved a significant milestone by being selected as one of the Top 14 startups among the ninth cohort of IdeaSpace’s Flagship Accelerator Program and received recognition as one of the beneficiaries of the DOST-PCIEERD Startup Grant Fund Program. These noteworthy accomplishments in the past demonstrates Xperto’s potential to make a more remarkable impact in the industry.
Xperto’s success story is a testament to the growing trend of digital solution platforms in the Philippines that allow professional organizations to thrive in the modern world. Engr. Caguimbal believes that behind their success, one good entrepreneur should have a solid understanding of technology, business mathematics, and good people skills. What started as Caguimbal’s vision turned into a fruitful passion and is now recognized by the PFPA as a notable contribution to Filipino advancement and innovation.
