The regional office, People4u’s first outside the Philippines, is positioned to spearhead the firm’s global expansion initiative aimed at penetrating targeted markets.
According to People4u CEO Jay de Claro, the strategy is driven by the growing opportunities abroad for Salesforce support and implementation. “We believe there is a niche for what we offer,” he said. “Our offshore services enable companies that want to acquire verified Salesforce skills under a low-cost, low-risk setup.”
People4u is a Registered Consulting Partner of Salesforce in the Philippines, and thus far the only one in the country with Lightning accreditation. It has one of the largest number of Salesforce-certified consultants in the Philippines, a strength rooted in its ability to develop talents.
De Claro said they do not simply recruit. “We do not rely solely on sourcing qualified talents; we create them. We hire them, we train them, and then we get them certified and deployment-ready,” he said. “Through our capability development programs, we are able to overcome the limitations of the labor market.”
People4u is a leading developer of Salesforce expertise in the Philippines. Its training courses include modules in key competencies like Apex, Visualforce, Lightning, and Apttus CPQ – all given free to employees. Certification exams are likewise sponsored by the company, whose stellar pass rate hovers above 99%.
Remarkably, People4u has accumulated a sizeable collection of certifications on Sales Cloud, Service Cloud, and Marketing Cloud over a span of just a few years.
Founded in 2011, People4u offers consulting and staffing solutions to companies in the US and Australia that want to cut costs, mitigate risk, and gain flexibility. Through its managed support services, clients can buy buckets of hours to do defined tasks under a follow-the-sun workflow model.
People4u is owned by Yumeshin Holdings, a Tokyo-based listed corporation with 6,600 employees. One of the leading skilled manpower dispatch businesses in Japan, it hires over 2,000 engineers annually. Yumeshin has subsidiaries in Vietnam, Taiwan, Korea, Russia, and the Philippines.
