The Philippines, in general, continues to be a hot spot for call center outsourcing and other BPO services with its extensive infrastructure, business-friendly government initiatives, and educated English-speaking talent pool. The top reason US companies outsource to Cebu is the low cost of doing business in the region without compromising the quality of life for the workers or the service they provide.

As is the case with most outsourcing decisions, the main factor is cost. With a low cost of living there and low operational costs, outsourcing your call center needs to the Philippines provides a great return on investment. If you need customer support, technical support, or telemarketing, outsourcing to the Philippines can save a lot of money.
The Philippines offers several excellent locations for outsourcing call centers, including Manila, Cebu, Davao, Bacolod, and Iloilo; all top choices. Each of these cities offers a young and educated population, and English is an official language.
Even though call center agents are among the highest-paid workers in the Philippines, outsourcing your call center needs creates significant savings. While a call center agent in the US can be expected to earn $30,000 per year, the same worker in the Philippines only makes about $7,268 per year. This can cut your call center labor cost by up to 70%.
For call center roles, outsourcing companies typically pay workers between $2.50/hr on the low end and $10/hr on the high end. However, this can vary depending on the skills required. This is significantly cheaper than the wage for an equivalent role in the U.S., which falls between $15/hr and $45/hr.
