BPO Services – Quality over cost

There are many misconceptions as to why people choose to outsource, the most common being that its only purpose is to cut corners on wages. Although this was a primary incentive in the beginning, it’s become an initiative companies have been using without prioritising the cheap labour factor. For some businesses, the core question is not how BPO services can be implemented to save money, but rather how it can help in making money for the business. Rather than investing the nuts and bolts of creating the necessary foundation and infrastructure in-house, money is seen as better spent on certain outsourced jobs; giving managers and directions more time to focus on important decisions to maximise business growth.

business outsourcing

But how exactly are companies using business outsourcing services to drive quality and growth? How does it maximise success? Outsourced has found four main reasons why leading companies have been using remote staff that does not involve cost-cutting reasons.

1. To tap into global talent for BPO services

Information Technology is a universal knowledge pool and it’s almost foolish to limit your location range to just your local area when recruiting talent. Some of the best developers or web designers may be situated kilometres away and it’s important to recognise this. Don’t let the fact that they’re in a different country deter you from exploring outside of your geographical range. When

thinking about hiring PHP developers, front end development, Java developers and wordpress web developers, start looking at recruitment agencies who provide the necessary assistance to help you tap […]

IT BPO services in the Philippines shines brighter in 2016

The BPO services market has not always been a fast growing market. The first offshore call centre was set up in 1992, however it was only in the past 10 years that saw the rapid growth within the industry as plane travel and online communication tools advancements sped up to suit overseas outsourcing.

Among countries known for housing outsourced centres, it is the Philippines that have caught the attention of companies all over the world as a resourceful and valuable hub of high quality  and affordable offshore staff.  Globally dubbed as the world’s BPO solutions capital, the Philippines displays a number of characteristics beyond the cheap labour costs that make the country shine above the rest, and an attractive preference for multinational companies looking at BPO services.

Highest English-proficiency in the SEA

The Philippines is renowned for a highly westernised culture. With this naturally comes an advanced proficiency in written and spoken English, with a staggering 95% literacy rate, making it the third largest English-speaking country in the world. However what wins over global companies is their clear adopted American accent, which overcomes a significant language barrier and social stigma that foreign outsourcing presents, something that is hugely advantageous over its neighbours in the South East Asian region. This makes this particular country an attractive location for remote  staff  and outsourcing IT services.

Success-driven workers attract global as well as start up companies

Alongside the skill, there has been a shift in mindset amongst the young Filipino workers. Traditionally, BPO services were limited to high-volume yet low priced work which was […]

Business Outsourcing Sector in Philippines Exceeds 2015 Targets

offshore work

As business outsourcing continues to grow, the significant changes that this growth presented dominated 2015, particularly within the Philippines. It’s common knowledge that BPO services have become almost an unofficial trademark of the Philippines, with more and more global brands turning to employing Philippine offshore work staff, resulting in over a million employees and generating revenues of $22 billion.

“The BPO industry continues to be the forefront of our economy,” Danilo Sebastian Reyes, chairman of IT & Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP), stated at a conference in Manila earlier this year in February.

“In 2015, we breached our target revenue of $21 billion. We registered almost $22 million in revenue and almost 1.1 million direct employment.”

This successful business outsourcing explosion has come from a number a different factors, from a large supply of English-speaking college graduates, to the strong US dollar to Pesos rates and an overwhelming support from the government. This has ultimately helped the Philippines overtake India within this industry, who are well known for their consistent dominance within the  business process outsourcing  (BPO) sector. According to Reyes, Philippines is determined to allow their rise in ranks to only continue to grow, with a new revision of the 2022 revenue and employment projection underway.

“We’re already close to reaching our 2016 revenue target of $25 billion and employment of 1.3 million workers. Given this, we’re now setting new and bigger targets for 2022, to be announced sometime this August.”
