Bagaporo gather for the ceremonial signing of the BOI-One Window Network (BOI-OWN) during its soft launch on August 19, 2015 at the BOI Penthouse in Makati City. BOI-OWN is a cloud-based web portal and mobile application system that enables investors not only to lodge queries and concerns online but also access a databank of information related to business and investments. It also includes a system that can track and monitor the real time status of investor’s inquiry and concerns using personal computers or smart phones. As soon as it formally launches, it will fast-track the services the BOI and the Investment Promotion Unit Network (IPUNet) provide to its clients and stakeholders. BOI-OWN is part of the agency’s transformation program not only to better serve its clients but also to achieve its main goals of having a competitive business and investment environment in the country and developing a more conducive atmosphere for industry development and global value chains.
