RP's top 25 contact centers report $1.67B in revenuesPosted December 02, 2008
THE 25 leading operators of contact centers in the Philippines reported P68.5 billion, or $1.67 billion, in aggregate revenues in 2007, Catanduanes Rep. Joseph Santiago, chairman of the House information and communications technology committee, disclosed Sunday.
"This is the first time that we've actually managed to put together the reported revenues generated by some of the largest players in the contact-center sector," said Santiago, a leading congressional supporter of the country's information technology-enabled service industries.
"By no means does the P68.5 billion cover the entire contact center sector," said Santiago, former chief of the National Telecommunications Commission.
Santiago said he could easily name at least 25 other contact center operators here whose 2007 revenues were not readily available, and were thus not included on the list.
He said the P68.5 billion in combined revenues reported by the 25 large contact-center operators translated to $1.67 billion at the end-2007 exchange rate of $1: P41.14.
"This gives us a better sense as to how large the contact-center sector, which is driving the broader business process-outsourcing industry, has become," Santiago said.
"To put the $1.67 billion in perspective, overseas Filipino workers sent home through the banking system an average of $1.37 billion monthly from January to September this year. So the $1.67 billion is easily more than one month's worth of remittances," he pointed out.
