Many Outsourcing Companies are Moving from Manila to Clark Freeport Zone.
“Philippines as a country offers us a unique talent pool for outsourcing services in legal as well as design services,” says Joseph Sigelman, co-president of India-based Outsourcing group, which was acquired by a U.S. company. in April. The company chose the Philippines as the springboard for its legal services outsourcing and expects to make Manila the main center for “pre-media” outsourcing work, including desktop publishing, composition, typesetting, and graphic design.
IT outsource to the Philippines by companies like AoV Outsourcing service, PI Outsource, AJK Consulting, MicroSourcing and numerous other BPO and KPO companies has been on the stream of economic issues not only in the country but mainly in the United States as well. Outsource to the Philippines is undeniably the factor that steers the growth of our economy. Apparently, there is no standard legitimate definition for outsource to the Philippines. But generally, outsourcing is the transfer of fractions of work to an outside service provider or suppliers to reduce the cost of expenses. This often result to more business opportunity for companies. outsource to the Philippines has been continuously booming for the past years since the labour of our workers here are considerably cheaper than the services offered elsewhere.
Since 2000, IT outsource to the Philippines have sprouted like mushrooms throughout major Philippine cities, including Iloilo’s AoV Outsourcing service, Manila’s Archangles IT, Clark Freeport Zone’s (the former US military base in Pampanga province) RCG-IT, Cebu’s PODD Corp., Dumaguete’ SPI and Davao’s BHI Pro, catering largely to US firms seeking cheap labor to handle so-called “cyberservices”, including customer care, back-office processing, data transcription and other information-technology-related services. The focus of IT outsource to the Philippines is to provide both your customers and the search engines with what they seeking, highly accessible information.
The main 3 search engines, Google, Yahoo and MSN, are constantly refining and altering the algorithms that drive their engines to produce the most relevant and useful results.The Philippine Cyberservices Corridor is a plan that is being pursued by the government of the Philippines to create interconnected centers of technology-related services, that are spread out all over the country. Services include IT outsource to the Philippines, medical transcription, and the like.
In 2005, the country employed about 100,000 BPO/KPO and customer care agents, with employment growing yearly. This growth is expected to accelerate by the completion of the corridor. It is estimated that 200,000 people are working in 120 BPO in the Philippines in 2006, and expected to bring in revenues of US$3.8 billion for the year.
Manila is over crowded and its can take hours to drive from Makati to another part of Manila. The best new option for foreigners who are setting up outsourcing companies is to setup shop in Clark Freeport Zone.
Clark Freeport Zone has More to Offer than Manila
Clark Freeport Zone is a redevelopment of the former Clark Air Base, a former United States Air Force base in the Philippines. It is located on the
northwest side of Angeles City and on the west side of Mabalacat City in the province of Pampanga. It is located northwest of Metro Manila. The zone is a former US military base and has modern infrastructure facilities, generous fiscal and non-fiscal incentives, professional support services and other
amenities. Today, Clark forms the hub for business, industry, aviation, education, and tourism in the Philippines as well as a leisure, fitness,
entertainment and gaming center of Central Luzon.
The plan for the 4,400-hectare (10,868-acre) main zone and 27,600-hectare (68,172-acre) sub zone is to transform the zone into an airport-driven urban center targeting high-end IT enabled industries, aviation and logistics related enterprises, tourism and other sectors.
The future international gateway for the country was planned for Clark but is now in limbo as the president seems to
favour expanding the existing Manila airport. Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) is the only airport serving the
Manila area. However, in practice, both NAIA and Clark International Airport(CRK) serve the Capital and surrounding
cities, with CRK catering mostly to low-cost carriers that avail themselves of the lower landing fees than those charged at
