Message from the Chairman

My Fellow Cooperators,

Happy New Year!

As we start 2019,  I want to say THANK YOU to all of you for your continued support and trust in LIPIEMCO expressed in your continuing patronage and loyalty to our services and product offerings.

I also wanted to take the time to reflect on some of the 2018 highlights and where we are going.

2018 was a year focused on retooling LIPIEMCO as we poise for longevity and strategic growth.  Among others, the roadmap to advancing our member experience and getting ready for the long road towards a different level of success starts with our key initiatives and investments:

  • Staffing at the right level supporting our nationwide operations
  • Upgrading our IT infrastructure—technology plays a very important role in keeping up with our growth
  • Subscribing to a more advanced and efficient Cooperative Management System
  • Improving our members’ reach through our new website (lipiemco.coop)
  • Empowering our members through secure and direct access to their personal accounts online—accurate information at the time you need it.
  • Updating our policies and effectively documenting them
  • Standardizing our processes and procedures

This year, we will continue to maximize the utilization of our resources by reaching prospective new members and expanding to new business ventures that will generate even better revenue streams and returns.  It is not an easy task, but we are committed to putting the time and effort to make that happen.

We are also challenged to adjust the way we operate, realizing that what has worked for the last 18 years may no longer be the best going forward.  And most importantly we must cooperate in securing our continued success through active, engaged and responsible membership.

I want to thank you all for the opportunity of serving you and leading the charge in our pursuit for an even stronger LIPIEMCO.

Let’s all have a wonderful and prosperous 2019!

Sandee Pilayre

Chairman, Board of Directors

Message from the General Manager

Dear Fellow LIPIEMCO Members,

Greetings and Welcome 2019!

Let me walk you through with our commitments in 2018.

  1. LIPIEMCO Website (lipiemco.coop): As promised, we finally completed our website just before the year ends.  Please take a browse of our website and we will tour you with the latest updates, newsbreaks, events, announcements, plans and more.
  1. New Cooperative Management System (CMS): Our new system IACCS is already on its LIVE Test and will now be our official operational system starting this year.  This is in time with the present needs of our cooperative.  We are not only growing in terms of membership but also in terms of ‘volume transactions’ every day.
  1. Member’s Portal: Upon receipt of an email coming from our Marketing Group, you may immediately REGISTER in our Member’s Portal.  This is an initial step to access your information with LIPIEMCO. You may also use this platform to access your account and UPDATE your personal information in the future.
  1. BPI BIZLINK: For our Batangas Members, we are happy to inform you that we also completed our network partnership with BPI days before December 31, 2018.  This means that all your loans proceeds, savings and investments withdrawals will now be processed through “on-line release” via your BPI account.
  1. Membership ID via UBP: We are still confronted with challenges in hitting the 100% target by the 1st Quarter of 2019.  To date, total card releases were still at 33% or 1,319 cards against 4,000 members.  This is, however, at a speed of 440% faster than the previous 300 cards in October 2018.

Remember that we cannot do this alone.  We still need your participation especially in the filling-up of the UBP form.  The UBP form was emailed then 3 months ago and are available at the office in Cebu and through your respective coordinators in Batangas.  For easier access, you can now download the form from our website and send back to us only the form with your complete information and original signature.

Again, this will not stop us from envisioning what is best for our cooperative in the future.  Let us all continue with our journey.

Your unrelenting involvement and support will surely put LIPIEMCO into a better position to advance further as the year comes.

Mabuhay ug Daghang Salamat!

Ed Manubag

General Manager
