Our LIGHTHOUSE KEEPER
Joselyn T. Capistrano
Joselyn T. Capistrano is a quality and service process improvement guru with more than twenty years of work experience with multinational companies such as IBM, Citibank, HP, Accenture, and Fujitsu.
A renowned adviser in project management, software engineering, and software development, Capistrano is, so far, the only Filipina with a Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Lead Appraiser license in the Philippines.
Capistrano’s entrepreneurial journey dates way back in 2001 when she founded SQME Professionals, Inc., a software engineering and quality management company that focuses on providing business enhancement services that are guided by the principles and methodologies of CMMI, International Organization for Standardization (ISO), and Six Sigma.
Having developed a strong relationship with clients from different industries, the firm, under her leadership, proved to be one of the most successful providers of business enhancement services in the Philippines — expanding its operations in Hong Kong, while growing its services in other business sectors.
In 2008, seeing great opportunities in the field of software development, Capistrano, together with her friend Allan Tan, co-founded Ideyatech, Inc., a Java software development company that serves businesses from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, and the Middle East.
Having attained enough success in the world of IT, Capistrano soon envisioned a bigger dream — support the outsourcing needs of SQME Professionals Inc. through a business process outsourcing arm, BPSource, Inc. Combining the expertise of these two companies, SQME Professionals and BPSource has now merged into one solid brand — Service Quality Management Engineers, a full-service process improvement and outsourcing firm internationally recognized for transforming companies into high performance organizations.
