Just read Tholons latest paper on Digital Disruption: http://www.tholons.com/pdf/TSGI%20Report%202017.pdf
As if things aren’t gonna be hard enough, the BPO industry here in the Philippines is not evolving fast enough. The tidal wave of digital disruption is not something we are adequately prepared for.
Although we are #3 overall when it comes to countries in a position to continue to benefit from globalization, being one of the top countries is by no means assured.
For the past decade its mainly been a battle between India and the Philippines, but China has crashed the party and a lot of Latin American countries are in hot pursuit.
If you are one who thinks the BPO industry here is gonna continue to see 20% year over year growth, then this slide should give you pause.
Why? Because although blessed with some amazing advantages for customer service, we aren’t currently optimizing our focus on digital transformation.
When you look at the next image, you see both Manila and Cebu have lost ground in the battle of global cities in the past year as well.
Manila was #2, now its #4. Now is not the time to be complacent. We need to invest heavily in upskilling our BPO workforce to offer higher value chain services. We need to champion for strong DSA programs in the schools. And we need to make sure decision-makers are armed with the data they need to keep the Philippines on the cutting edge of globalization.
Thats why we have the AAP.PH and why we have launched Augment BPO.
