👋 Oi, mga repapips, Brian Dys here! I love music, photography, and creative stuff like UX design and art. This is a place where I collect my thoughts and works. Apart all these, I’m Jaycelle’s better half and Bryce’s dad. 🥰
Mitch Padua is also the Head of Products, Smart Communications.
In November of 2009, Chikka was bought by Smart. I was only a year young in the company. Changes were for the better. Progress is always good.
During the latter part of 2014, Chikka began merging under Voyager Innovations. Our little pail of water world was suddenly thrown into a pool. Work became more challenging. Stepping up became a necessity for survival. Changes were for the better. Progress is always good.
On this day of October 2018, the pool is overflown. KKR and Tencent invest in Voyager Innovations. The future is brighter than ever. The now, more exciting with challenges.
This is a watershed moment not only for Voyager Innovations but also for the Philippines. With this investment by KKR and Tencent, we will trigger an inflection point in digital adoption and financial inclusion in the country. Orlando B.

Throughout my career, I’ve met and worked with a class of talented people in the tech industry. Mentors and coaches have imparted invaluable lessons that are ingrained in my leadership values.
Changes are for the better. Progress is always good.
Innovation is not a skill. It is a culture, it is a mind set, a destination rarely reached, and the bountiful return on an investment made in the education of people unafraid.Aaron Madolora, Chief Innovation Officer, Voyager Innovations
On 12 October 2017, we held a Meet & Greet event with our new Chief Innovation Officer, Aaron Madolora. He is also the Founder and CEO of VeepWorks.
Voyager X (Explorer) is a concept by the new CIO, Aaron Madolora – a gaming app that aims to consolidate and utilize all platforms in Voyager. The game part aims to engage users in interacting with our products and services.
The app begins with a map of the user’s location. In the map will be indicators of points of engagements and interactions.
On Making the World a Better Place
Corruption is the number one impediment to our country’s growth. “Transparency is the key,” he says.
If a citizen clearly sees where her tax money is going to, let alone it is going to good causes, she will trust the leaders in our country.
The game will enable users to band together for a good cause. For example, in the game it shows that there is a pothole in the road – users could contribute a certain amount that will get the road fixed. It’s like Kickstarter, only this one is integrated in the public sector.
On Making Money (of course)
In the game, users would see locations where there are promotions. It’s like Foursquare. The app could have mini games inside it and when the user solves a puzzle, she will be able to unlock a prize.
Truly a Vision
This idea is far-reaching. It is near-alien it is shaking from where we stand. It warrants a new structure in the organization, in the workflow, in the skillsets. But this is where we’re headed.
And a visionary is just what we need.
On September 8, we at Voyager hosted the general assembly of First Pacific Chief Information Officers Council and simultaneously held a digital transformation learning sessions with them.
I had the opportunity to share with the council about Organic Growth Through Best-in-class UX.
It was the same idea that I shared with IdeaSpace Startups last July 26.
Soon I’ll be sharing the UX improvement ideas here in my blog.
