Our History

 

The top IT solutions company in the Philippines that is Yondu, Inc., goes way back 2001 — back when it was first called as the Entertainment Gateway Group (EGG) and only had three employees under its name. Despite being a small group, they had big dreams and an even bigger passion that ferried them across what was then the beginning of the digital age both in the country and abroad.

In just three years, EGG grew bigger and its roster of experts increased. This paved the way for the formation of a focused Technology Team in 2004 and a Technology Outsourcing Partner in 2006. This excellent track record became the reason why the EGG Corp was acquired by the country’s largest telecommunications firm, Globe Telecom, Inc. The acquisition proved to be a vital key in Yondu’s success in the next four years, starting with 2010 when Yondu got a positive EBITDA (Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization) with a growth of 29%. We also became Globe’s Partner of the Year for 2011, and a Red Herring Award recipient in 2012 — Yondu’s first international recognition

Yondu only kept on growing and growing from there, both in numbers and expertise. This only spurred the company more to drive forward and explore more innovations in the name of digital transformation for its clientele. It also became one of the catalysts for one of the country’s top tech companies investing P900 million for a 50% stake of the company in 2015.

These developments were vital for the company — apart from capitalizing on the success reached in the past years and the exponential growth of the brand, it also occurred around the time that changes in the technological landscape, especially in terms of business processes, were starting to take root.

These efforts proved successful when, in the following years, Yondu gathered a number of awards, including being named as among the country’s top three tech startups along with big names such as Zalora and Lazada in 2016, being recognized in the 2017 Asia Pacific Entrepreneurship Awards, and being included in the top 5 PH startups by revenue in 2018.

In 2020, Yondu passed the ISO 27001 Certification Audit, an internationally recognized best practice for an Information Security Management System (ISMS). This certification builds Yondu’s credibility and reputation as a Managed Service Provider in handling and managing Information Security.

Today, we’re one of the top IT players in the Philippines, promoting a digitally-savvy society and delivering solutions no matter how difficult the challenges we have to overcome. With more than 700 Yondudes all dedicated to helping the company’s multitude of clients across different sectors, we’re certainly stronger than ever before.

And we just keep on making history.

Our Story

Before Yondu was born, it was first called the Entertainment Gateway Group – a humble tech-based company that started with only three employees and specialized in mobile content and digital applications.

It provided value-added services, including music, news and info, JAVA games, interactive TV games, chat, web-to-mobile services, and digital marketing services.

In 2004, EGG was able to grow exponentially to form a focused Technology Team. Then, the Technology Outsourcing Partners division followed in 2006.

The company was then acquired by Globe Telecom, and later on, evolved to become one of its strongest acquisitions. EGG’s portfolio and capabilities were starting to grow and expand to Custom Development and IT Staffing, apart from VAS.

In 2014, EGG rebranded to “Yondu,” which was initially meant for TOP (Technology Outsourcing Partners) led by our President Joan Penaflorida. Along the way, however, it seemed fitting to apply the rebranding to the whole company, transforming EGG into Yondu, Inc.

More than the expansion of EGG’s capabilities, we were also moving way ahead of the macroenvironmental factors in the IT industry, paving the way for Yondu’s brand new image.

We were ready to not only just deliver “cutting-edge digital solutions”, but do more, be more, and “go above and beyond [for] you”.

So we got to work with a team of professionals when it comes to these things. After several brainstorming of ideas and cups of coffee, Yondu’s brand idea was born. And we were ready for the makeover of the century.
