Despite recent calamities that struck Cebu, the city remains a viable alternative operation site for Philippine call center outsourcing firms, land development company CBRE Philippines claimed.
Cebu owes its positive image to reports saying that operations of outsourcing firms in its business districts and IT parks stayed unscathed amidst the devastation in the Visayas region brought by Supertyphoon Haiyan in early November and the 7.2-magnitude earthquake mid-October.
“We have reviewed and verified reports from all of our property and facilities management sites that our clients were fortunately largely unaffected by the typhoon, and it has not caused a related slowdown in office and BPO operations across the country,” CBRE chairman and founder Rick Santos said.
CBRE’s recent Cebu Marketview report also stated that Cebu remains an ideal outsourcing destination due to the city’s affordable office rental rates and strong workforce.
The reliable power and telecommunication facilities available in the Queen City of the South further ensure clients of unhampered operations.
Earlier reports said that Metro Cebu will be expanding up to 222,368 square meters of rentable spaces for Philippine call center, IT, and back office outsourcing service providers. The business process outsourcing (BPO) industry’s growth in the metropolis is also a contributing factor to the positive performance of the Philippine property development sector this year.
