Melanio Jr Cu“I was fortunate to be invited by the client to meet with their project team in Finland to better understand the work they’re doing on new products, as well as collaborate with the local engineers in their actual work environment.”

Melanio Jr Cu started his testing career in Philippines as test analyst for different companies focusing on clients in manufacturing and insurance. An opportunity to work for clients in the banking sector led to a relocation to Singapore.

It was while working in Singapore that Melanio first heard about Planit.

“Planit would sometimes come up in conversations with colleagues and friends,” he says. “When I moved to Sydney, one of my friends suggested I should look out for an opportunity at Planit, which is what I did and eventually joined the company.

Now an Engineer with the Sydney team, Melanio had a unique opportunity to travel to Finland to visit a Planit client. While it is not uncommon for Planit staff to occasionally visit client sites overseas, this was one of the few times someone went as far as Scandinavia.

“This particular Sydney client has an office in Finland where most of the new products are being developed and tested by the local engineers,” Melanio says. “I was fortunate to be invited by the client to meet with their project team in Finland to better understand the work they’re doing on new products, as well as collaborate with the local engineers in their actual work environment.”

For Melanio, this type of hands-on, face-to-face interaction was both valuable and informative.

“The experience really enabled me get a better understanding the way client works on its products, particularly from the angle of testing that takes place at their production site,” he says.

Besides getting a first-hand look at how the client develops and tests its products, and directly interact with the people who create them, most significant learning from the trip was the importance of understanding the client’s needs.

“Having a good way of communicating and documenting also make the development and testing process smoother and more problem-free for everyone,” Melanio says.

Although it was a work-related trip, Melanio still had the opportunity to experience the unique surroundings of Finland.

“When I took the train from Helsinki to Tampere, I was surprised to see that it had a fully operational canteen in one of the carriages,” he says. “Not only that, but the coffee was free, so we had free flowing coffee for the entire train trip!”
