In 2015, Flat Planet matched the revenue of 2014 despite the departure of APD. It was a great year.
But it was also the year that David, our business partner, called it a day. He now had a young family and wanted to focus on opportunities at home in Australia.
We all stayed focused on work while we worked through the issues, continuing to grow and build our executive management team.
Flat Planet was back well over 100 seats and it was increasingly clear that with David’s departure, we were going to need a strong local management team and some leading-edge technology – hence GAIA was born!
GAIA today is the ERP/HRM system that ties Flat Planet together. It is the key to the sustainability of the systems that underpin Flat Planet’s operations not just in the Philippines but in Vietnam and Malaysia as well.
