Rogomi_FINAL_HorizText

Rogomi, Inc. spells a new brand, a fresh start. We all look forward to greater and more exciting developments in the world of mobile technology in the coming years. Here’s a statement from our President and CEO, Ramon Pastor.

We are delighted to announce the birth of our mobile software development company, Rogomi, Inc.

Earlier this year, our majority owners and management decided to undergo several major changes for our previous company, Numlock Solutions Co. The first of these changes involved amending our business type from partnership to corporation. As our business continued to grow over the years, we felt it was time to embrace a corporate identity more suited to our expanding company.

Although we initially wanted to retain our former company name given that we’ve already established solid roots in the mobile software development industry via Numlock, we welcomed this opportunity to establish a new brand and a fresh start.

As most of our stakeholders know, Numlock started as a three-man startup building websites and mobile applications in 2008. In the back of several successful releases of mobile applications for iOS and Android in 2009 and 2010, we decided to focus on designing and developing software applications for mobile devices and moved to our current head office in Ortigas Center, Pasig City. The company expanded to a 12-man team developing in-house apps, as well as mobile apps for a wide range of clients, from startups to multinational companies.

This year, along with a new corporate identity, we also decided to focus exclusively on helping enterprises design, create, build and test mobile applications for their businesses. Backed by years of designing and developing mobile software applications for both SMEs and global brands, we feel that creating high-quality mobile applications for outsourcing customers is what we do best. All of our former in-house apps under the Numlock brand will continue to be supported by Rogomi until a new and separate company is established to manage them.

Apart from narrowing our focus from website and mobile applications development to mobile applications development for outsourcing clients, we’ve also expanded our development facility by establishing our second office in Iloilo City. Our long-term plans include the recruitment and training of more designers and developers in our satellite office in Iloilo to support our Manila operations.

In light of all these business type and strategic changes, we would like to assure our customers, suppliers and stakeholders that the transition from Numlock to Rogomi will have no material impact on our operations. The Numlock team that managed, designed, developed and tested mobile software applications for all of our projects will be the same team that will handle all of these functions under Rogomi.

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to better processes and more world-class applications under Rogomi.

Nokia Developer News’ Interview of Ramon Pastor

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013

Numlock’s head honcho, Ramon Pastor, was interviewed by the Nokia Developer News team. Ramon was chosen from among more than a thousand entries as one of the top ten developers to join Nokia’s Imaging SDK Team for the company’s Future/Capture Hackathon to be held in Lund, Sweden from August 30 to September 1.

Excerpts from the interview:

Q. Who will be going to the hackathon? Just you or will you be coding with someone else?

I’ll be going alone. I’m used to being a lone wolf when attending tech conferences or events.

Q. The hackathon is in Sweden, tell us what you know about Sweden apart from Abba songs?

I know that Sweden is part of the region that Vikings used to inhabit. Also, if I’m not mistaken, the story of Beowulf is set in the region. So, I expect to see a lot of fierce and proud people when I get there.

Q. How many hackathons have you been to before and which was your favorite?

I personally haven’t participated in any hackathons, but some members of my company participated in the recent Angelhack in Manila. I wasn’t able to attend since I was in San Francisco for WWDC. I’ve also been an armchair spectator in the local chapter of Startup Weekend.
