Undoubtedly, the call center industry is one of the strongest pillars in the Philippine Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) industry which highlighted the Philippines in the world economic map. But did you know when call centers significantly started in the Philippines?
It actually started with Sykes in Manila back in 1997. They were the pioneer in the call-center industry after opening their first branch in Makati with a handful of employees. In 2003, they were also the first call center company to operate in Cebu. As a global company, Sykes have clients in Asia Pacific, Middle East and North America, serving Fortune 500 Companies.
With Filipino’s proficiency with the English language, it wasn’t a surprise that the industry flourished; and the rest was history.
