Born out of a need for a simple database by a Bacolod-based non-profit organization (Tapulanga Foundation) in 2008, Akubo started as an in-house project, aiming to ease data organization and management.
Akubo is a 100% Filipino customer relationship management (CRM) pioneer serving non-profit organizations, educational institutions, associations, and businesses in the Philippines and globally. We help our clients grow their businesses and their organizations through CRM and other services that Akubo provides.
For more than a decade, Akubo has grown from a simple CRM provider to a full-service “kubo” that makes data management easier. Throughout the years, Akubo has become a genuine supporter to the missions of our partner organizations and businesses.
With outstanding customer experience and globally competitive digital solutions, Akubo promises to give you everything you need to create meaningful connections with your community.
Akubo came from the word “kubo” a Philippine word that means “hut” and is iconic to local culture as a place where you can put everything you own. This is very much what we envision Akubo to be – your “hut” where you can put all your data to build meaningful connections of purpose and passion.
