In 2011, Tsukuno Masahiko came from Japan to Singapore and observed a phenomenon – almost every Singaporean has at least one handphone, and could make calls and send messages via their phones.
While having lunch and growing a little frustrated at the poor service he received, his mind worked furiously and he realized this was a pressing gap to fill.
Quality companies such as reputable restaurants make excellent food, but are sometimes left disappointed by a lack of manpower.
His experience in the recruitment industry and software development – he is an expert in man-machine interactions – led him to craft a powerful recruitment solution backed by technology.
Thus, he founded Taosos and our unique SMS24/7 Auto-Handling System was developed in-house to deliver crucial snippets of information to individuals via SMS and empower them to interact with companies anytime, anywhere. After projects with JTB and various Japanese companies, he realized the true problem – companies in Singapore have great difficulty hiring suitable candidates, especially Singaporeans.
The Good News:
Companies who had used our SMS24/7 Auto-Handling System in our previous projects could hire as much as 10 times more than other companies.
A board meeting was called in 2014 and we performed a business pivot shift to change our name to SMS24/7 to symbolize our services – a SMS-based system that is functional 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. New members who shared a dream to enable employment creation in Singapore, ASEAN, Asia and the world also joined the core team.
Since then, we have supported over 200 clients across F&B, Retail, Logistics, Transport, Healthcare, Fitness and other industries, including renowned local brands. We are proud that these efforts earned us a feature in the Straits Times as well as HR in Asia.
The steady progress has steadied our presence in Singapore and we have started projects in Malaysia. We are now looking to expand our team to provide our services to other ASEAN countries.
We aim to contribute to the economic development in ASEAN through employment creation, achieved by raising the effectiveness and efficiency of the hiring practices of companies, via solutions empowered by software and market know-how.
