Makati, Philippines - An archipelago situated in Southeast Asia, the Philippines is quickly establishing itself as a leading provider of business process outsourcing (BPO) services. The officiating body of the contact center industry in the Philippines, Information Technology and Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP) released staggering reports of how the country performed in the previous fiscal year.
