Transcom WorldWide S.A. (“Transcom”), the global outsourced services company, today announced the opening of its new contact centre in Manila, Philippines.  The centre has been developed on the back of strong client demand for high-quality offshore English language services, primarily in North America and the UK.

The Manila site has a total of 950 operational seats over two floors and Transcom expects these production seats to be fully utilised in 2008, based on the Company’s strong sales pipeline of offshore English language services.  In addition to the operational offshore capacity, Transcom intends to utilise the centre to house some of its Group-wide support activities.  Transcom has moved its two existing facilities to the new site in Manila, creating a stepping stone for continued growth in the region.

Keith Russell, CEO of Transcom, commented: “We are delighted to announce the opening of our new centre in Manila.  This is a strategically important development for Transcom, as we continue to pursue our strategy of enhancing our profitability through the development of higher-margin business lines such as offshore services.  Our team in the Philippines is able to deliver exceptionally high-quality services to English speaking customer bases across North America and Europe, and we expect this business to develop strongly in 2008 and well into the future.”
