Considering that Ilonggos are known for being 'malambing' or affectionately sweet in the way they speak or interact with others - fellow Filipinos or otherwise, it doesn't come off as a surprise that Iloilo is actually home to some of the biggest call center companies in the world including Teletech, Savant, Global Mega Communications Inc., Callbox Customer Contact Center, Medlink Trans Services among many others. And come middle of this year, the Visayan city will welcome yet another global company to be part of its booming BPO industry: Hinduja Global Solutions.

Quoting GoodNewsPilipinas (source):

Antonio dela Cruz, senior vice president for finance and corporate services and Pushka Misra, president and chief executive officer for Philippine operations of Hinduja Global Solutions met with local officials to discuss the investment plans.

[...]

The Business Processing Association of the Philippines (BPAP) recently ranked Iloilo third among the top 10 “next wave” cities in the Philippines for business process outsourcing and information technology because of the low cost of doing business and the availability of talent.

It follows Metro Laguna and Metro Cavite and is followed by Davao. Bacolod City is ranked fifth followed by Bulacan East, Bulacan West, Cagayan de Oro, Lipa City and Pampanga Central.

Last year, BusinessWeek magazine said Iloilo and Davao were among the 31 cities that were being eyed by BPO investors due to economic and political pressures to outsource work to lower-cost cities.

Now, isn't that great?

Mabuhay ang mga Ilonggo!

  1. I think this post is brilliant. Personally, I am happy that a lot of call center companies are now entrusting their businesses in these Philippine provinces. This will bring a lot of opportunities to a lot of soft skilled workers and tap opportunities especially for those who wanted to jump in the call center bandwagon.

  5. Hello. FYI, so as not to mislead readers, Medlink Trans Services is NOT a call center company.
