Piton Philippines offers choices

One of the strongest suit of the Philippine economy is the outsourcing industry, the name Piton Philippines comes to mind when there’s talk about the outsourcing industry.

The outsourcing industry where the Piton Philippines is a player is considered as one 'sunshine sector' in the country. In fact others are saying that the outsourcing industry in the country is one of the fastest growing industries in the world right now. Consultancy firm McKinsey & Company made a study on the outsourcing industry and it learned that the industry in the country can reach up to $180 billion in 2010. And the bigger portion of the industry will be focused on customer contact services, finance services, accounting services and human resources.

The offshore call centers in the country are considered as the leader and the ones that actually lead the BPO boom in the Philippines. The revenues generated from these contact centers have generated for the country around $2.1 billion in 2006. This figure posted by the industry positioned the country as the third country on the list of best-earning centers for outsourcing. India and China leads the list, and the Philippines barely squeaked past Malaysia on the said list. Though the country ranked third on the list, the figures posted by the country is still up 62 percent. If the 2006 data and figures are to be evaluated, around 120 BPO centers are operational in the country and these contact centers employed around 200,000 people. These figures are expected to grow and by 2012, the sector is expected to bring in US$11 billion and expected to employ 900,000 people.
