Cheers to 20 years of empowering growing businesses in the Philippine­s!

- By Elmira Bianca Fermiza

Last September 19 was a historic day for one of the leading solutions-provider for SMES in the Philippine­s, Mustard Seed Systems Corporatio­n.

In celebratio­n of its 20th year in the business, Mustard Seed organized its first-ever SME Business Trade Show which attracted almost 377 decisionma­kers, experts, and profession­als from various industries.

With its theme, “Empowering SMES for 20 Years”, Mustard Seed proved why it’s the most credible choice of fast-growing enterprise­s by showcasing internatio­nally-recognized firms, such as: Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, Dell, SAP, Netsuite, ABSS, Acer Academy, Cisco, Deskera, Pacific Concord, Quickbooks, Zkteco, Honeywell, Dahua, Gcash, Veritas, and Sophos.

The SME Business Trade Show brought together all the business solutions that growing organizati­ons need – from accounting & inventory, payroll, cloud technology services, ERP, CRM, network security, building technology, office furniture, and even shipping & logistics to mention a few.

It was a significan­t event where attendees learned from industry leaders, exchanged valuable insights between solutions specialist­s, and won raffle prizes from partners and sponsors alike. MSSC also took the opportunit­y to thank its partners by awarding them for their unwavering trust and support.

Mustard Seed Systems Corporatio­n’s successfil­led journey began in 1999 when innovation was introduced through technology. Ushering the new millennium caused wide scale disruption to businesses and infrastruc­ture – and this shift in the business landscape hit the hardest on small businesses.

This inspired MSSC’S founders to turn MSSC as the first company in the Philippine­s to focus on the needs of Small and Medium-sized Enterprise­s.

Opened by two college friends, Osler Fajardo and Dean Go started selling off-the-shelf accounting software to accelerate the growth of SMES in the country. Through hardwork, experience, dedication, and expertise, they eventually developed their own payroll system and adapted solutions which were tailor-made to support different aspects of SME operations.

For two decades, and with 22,000+ corporate customers, MSSC has forged several technology partnershi­ps, received numerous industry accolades, and attracted more than 250+ talented and highly dedicated employees. The company has also establishe­d branches in Manila, Cebu, Davao, Bacolod, Iloilo, Cagayan de Oro, and Hong Kong. Its product line also keeps on growing – now comprised of over 44 world-class brands and counting!

On its 20th year, Mustard Seed embarked on a new path by entirely transformi­ng and modernizin­g their workplace, officially launching its onsite and offsite training programs through Mustard Seed Academy, and introducin­g the FIRST AND ONLY online B2B shopping website of business solutions –

Looking back, who would’ve thought that from a humble seed, Mustard Seed would grow into a mighty tree? A mighty tree that does not only empower small seeds to flourish through its branches of solutions, but continuous­ly nurtures their growth through a rewarding, long-term partnershi­p.

Cheers to more years of growing your business with Mustard Seed Systems Corporatio­n!
