PROOF OF HOW BUSINESS AND TECHNOLOGY IS THE NEW POWER DUO
A risky road to take is business. Many people enter the business world with the hope of playing the jackpot. However, business isn’t just about purchasing and reselling people’s goods. In reality, the process is more difficult, and only the most determined individuals succeed in this competition. Before using newspapers to advertise their products, businesses used leaflets to inform the public of their existence. In other words, typewritten documents were the only format they had used.
Businesses have changed over time and are now beginning to rely more on technology. Businesses began to use television and radio when they first became available as a platform for the promotion of their goods. Until our technical progress accelerated much further. There are currently a number of websites available for use by businesses to market and advertise their goods. Not only that, but individuals also created apps that enable others to place merchandise orders online without visiting a physical store. Technology has advanced alongside business, and as a result, firms have discovered ways to broaden their goals and motivations for operating.

Founded by Tony Caktiong in 1975, Jollibee has been around ever since. They started off as a tiny family business, selling ice cream on the streets of Manila with the assistance of his wife, family, and friends. A few years after they first opened, they began to see potential to sell hot meals, and as the public began to find these dishes appealing, the Jollibee we know today was undoubtedly created. But since business is business, Jollibee discovered its most coveted rival in the industry when they were just getting started. McDonald’s during that period was well-known to American countries and they gave Caktiong two choices he never chose from.
They told him to sell his business to McDonald’s or to become a McDonald’s franchise. But because of his unwavering conviction that his company had enormous potential, Caktiong dreamed big and battled against McDonad’s. In 1985, Jollibee became well-known as the leading fast-food company in the nation. Five years later, revenues had climbed from 570 million pesos the year before to more than 3.3 billion pesos. Jollibee has evolved from a single brand to a restaurant company with 17 recognizable names and more than 5,800 locations in 34 countries as a result of that ambition. Today, the Jollibee Empire owns businesses like Chowking, Burger King, Mang Inasal, and Greenwhich pizza.

Furthermore, in order to facilitate quicker and more seamless transactions in Jollibee’s physical establishments, the company has also unveiled Jollibots and smart lockers. During its launch, the first Jollibots was sighted in the SM Aura store in the Philippines. They were referred to as the team’s on-branch assistance because they delivered orders directly to the tables of the clients. Especially during busy hours, this innovation enables the staff to concentrate more on the needs and questions of clients as well as other crucial activities. Jollibots are now being sent to work in a few branches in the Philippines. In no time, this innovation will be launched in all their branches all over the world.
