Asian Journal interview with Sales Rain CEO Rajeev Agarwal

One Step Back, Two Steps Forward

According to Agarwal, the pandemic was a “one step back, two steps forward” process for Sales Rain. While they lost some clients to the crisis, the company’s quick response and strategic decisions successfully created new growth opportunities.

“As everyone knows, office real estate was one of the hardest-hit sectors during COVID,” Agarwal noted. “It was one step back, two steps forward for us…We did lose a few clients, but that makeup was a very small portion of our business.”

“On the brighter side, we gained some new clients,” he added.

For this to happen, Agarwal said the company readily provided the “highest level of support” to its clients and helped them “with whatever we can during the tough times.” These include creating safe office spaces and assisting with the vaccinations.

“We provided discounts, more flexible terms, social distancing, sanitized facilities, work from home and hybrid setups, on site and off site support, and help with the vaccination program,” he enumerated.

Agarwal also attributed Sales Rain’s high retention rate to the sacrifices its own employees made amid the pandemic.

“The kind of sacrifice our employees made being physically present in the offices, overcoming little to no transportation, and many other hardships were some of the key differentiators that helped us retain clients and win some new clients,” he stressed.

Keeping in mind the constant threat of infection while working at an office, Agarwal said Sales Rain compensated by paying all of its employees, getting them vaccinated, and extending concern to their families. And unlike other companies that decided to let go some of its workforce, Sales Rain retained all of its own.

Ushering Growth and Expansion

Despite COVID-19 and its variants, Sales Rain remained a leader in providing premier seat leasing services, coworking spaces and private offices. Its client retention rate was more than 90%, and new offices and further expansions were welcomed before 2021 ended.

Agarwal pointed out that these are due in part to their existing clients growing during the pandemic.

“One of our existing clients added the entire new floor in BGC,” he said. “Another client signed up for the entire new floor in Ortigas and additional floor again in Eastwood.”

In June last year, Sales Rain announced its expansion in BGC to house multinational organizations and startup businesses across various industries. The new floor accommodated over 250 workstations and various workspaces, like conference halls, interview rooms, and training facilities.

Likewise, Sales Rain expanded in Ortigas with the intent to provide outsourcing businesses with flexible and cost-effective workspace solutions. The new floor it acquired in One Corporate Center catered mostly to BPO and call center companies, having amenities such as common areas, meeting rooms, training rooms and sleeping quarters.

Additionally, Agarwal announced that Sales Rain is opening its first office in Palawan soon, and that it’s already fully occupied, indicating the company’s relentless pursuit of creating sustainable working environments to serve and accommodate clients better.

“So overall our retention rate was more than 90% and very satisfactory given the situation,” Agarwal said.

Office Market Recovery

With the Philippines showing marked improvement in terms of handling the pandemic, property market experts have predicted the office space demand to grow in the next few months of 2022. Furthermore, the business process outsourcing (BPO) sector will remain as the country’s biggest demand driver in the local property market — something Agarwal himself has acknowledged.

“The Philippines is a growing economy with a thriving BPO industry. It’s also home for top-quality and hardworking people that are naturally hospitable and can speak good English,” he noted.

According to him, the country is an ideal destination for business professionals who can work from anywhere. Of course, this is a prospect that Agarwal admitted to being excited over.

“For those who are not required to be in the office full time, [the] work from home [setup] will evolve into work from anywhere. Now that travel restrictions are being lifted, digital nomads and some business professionals would want to explore the world and work from anywhere,” he explained.

“The Philippines is a perfect destination for those. We currently have many domestic and international clients from over 20 different countries. We are very excited about our future prospects,” he added.

For Sales Rain’s prospective customers, Agarwal assured that the company will continue to provide safe working environments that are both flexible and economical.

“They can continue to expect the same dedication, service, pricing, and wholesome inclusions,” he said.

Sales Rain is a renowned provider of world-class offices in prime business districts of the Philippines. It provides access to adaptable workspaces, competitive rates, and prime locations that guarantee immense growth for numerous business process outsourcing companies and startup businesses.

Palawan Island, “The Last Ecological Frontier of the Philippines,” is an emerald archipelago specifically located in the Mimaropa region, with Puerto Princesa as the province capital. This paradise is famous for its picturesque beaches all across Southeast Asia and tops as one of the best vacation places to visit in Manila,  boasting a diverse plant and wildlife ecology surrounded by turquoise waters. With several subterranean rivers, white beaches, twin lagoons, swimming holes, 1,780 islands, and UNESCO World Heritage Sites, this slice of heaven is definitely a noteworthy travel destination.

The coastal city of Puerto Princesa is a highly urbanized arrival hub in the midsection of Palawan. As the center of trade and commerce, the area is currently being scouted by several call center service providers as a viable site option. Consequently, the recent contract expiration of a major BPO company’s five-year exclusivity agreement with the city has opened doors for other major industry players to explore the region’s talents and workspace resources.

This 2022, Sales Rain has acquired a new office location in Puerto Princesa as part of its aggressive expansion plans in the western provinces. The higher management was impressed with the local talents and the available office infrastructures within the city, making the decision to invest in Palawan an uncomplicated move. With the company’s strong commitment to providing top-notch seat leasing services and flexible rates, the forthcoming Sales Rain office located on the ground floor of Robinsons Place Palawan will boost the region’s economy by creating more jobs and opportunities on the island.

To support the city’s initiative in welcoming more call center and outsourcing industry investors, the Department of Information and Communication Technology (DICT) has included Puerto Princesa in the nationwide list of “Digital Cities” compiled by their group to identify BPO-ready localities. Sales Rain’s 14th office in Palawan is currently under construction and will be launched in August 2022.

Sales Rain’s first-ever site in Manila at 107 L.P. Leviste Street, Makati City, is donning a redesigned office layout. As a leader in the commercial real estate industry, timely renovations of office build-outs are frequent projects of workspace service providers. These measures are meant to promote efficient workspace solutions that directly impact client satisfaction and employee productivity. 

The Peak is a PEZA registered building that still stands as an ideal office location for entrepreneurs and startups due to its close proximity to the Makati central business district. This modern office facility was Sales Rain’s first acquisition in the Philippines way back in 2010. It is conveniently located along nearby shopping malls, hotels, banks, schools, parks, museums, and embassies that are easily accessible via public transportation. 

Sales Rain’s newly redesigned Makati site is a company-owned penthouse office spanning 305 sq ft in gross floor area with a view from strategically placed windows that provide natural lighting for clients’ visual comfort. The Peak Tower exudes premium building access through a private entrance that leads to a dedicated reception area. This professionally managed serviced office comprises 60 fully adaptable seats ideal for call center seat leasing, private office, or semi-private office. It also offers 2 Manager’s office that displays a professional ambiance with the necessary tables and chairs. It also comes with a meeting room, server room, and restroom. Moreover, this facility is equipped with reliable air conditioning units plus a fast internet connection for uninterrupted 24/7 business operations.

With the launch of its redesigned Makati site, the company continues to offer fully fitted workspace solutions that complement business requirements and operational processes. Moreover, being able to extend the most aggressive pricing for many types of office services makes Sales Rain the best option for entrepreneurs who are looking for work environments that are cost-effective, move-in ready, and come with complete amenities within the area.

Sales Rain: We are 100% Fully Vaccinated and Boosted

As the Philippine Economy reopens, Sales Rain understands the importance of having all of its employees vaccinated and boosted. Hence, the higher management made it a priority for its multiple sites to enlist al

l qualified staff for open Covid-19 vaccination registrations. This is in accordance with IATF’s (Inter-Agency Task Force) drive towards achieving herd immunity, where person-to-person infection is eliminated, further providing protection to the entire community. In addition, with many vaccine manufacturers getting FDA emergency approvals in other countries and the steady increase of global stock availability, the government’s vaccination initiatives are becoming more accessible to the general public.

Sales Rain’s fully vaccinated workforce safely operates its professionally managed seat leasing facilities and private offices by observing the minimum standard health protocols mandated by its respective LGUs (Local Government Unit) in Makati, Taguig, Mandaluyong, Pasig, and Quezon City. Strict adherence inside individual offices, call center workspaces, and common areas are implemented to ensure everyone’s health and safety.

Call center offices house client employees by the thousands, which also requires several on-site support personnel to be present both for the day and night shifts. Sales Rain’s flexible BPO seats come with 24/7 admin, maintenance, and in-house technical assistance to ensure that clients’ business operations run smoothly. Inclusive of its serviced office packages are meeting and conference room usage, with additional training room access for outsourcing campaigns. Exclusive lounge areas, cafes, smoking areas, sleeping quarters, and foosball tables can be enjoyed freely by clients as well. Moreover, a cup of freshly brewed coffee is provided daily for private and semi-private office occupants.

Given the enormous volume of people that go in and out of Sales Rain offices across major business districts in Manila, Maintaining clients’ and employees’ safety in the workplace is a must. Furthermore, fully vaccinated individuals have a lower risk of getting sick with the virus compared to the unvaccinated. Sales Rain values the health of its clients at all times. That’s why the management proactively helps out in facilitating clients’ employee vaccinations as a way to strengthen preventive measures against this fatal illness. Together, we will all take a step towards population immunity as one country.

Despite the year-long disruption caused by the worldwide pandemic, Sales Rain has managed to turn its fortunes around and create new growth opportunities that paved the way for further expansion of its infrastructures in 2021.

The ongoing health crisis has brought an enormous amount of difficulties across the globe. Many companies were forced to operate from home, causing other businesses to shut down completely while the rest have altered the way they work in order to cope with the current circumstances. Sales Rain, on the other hand, has adapted quickly and focused on generating strategic decisions helping the company to thrive and support more clients amidst the pandemic.

In June, Sales Rain announced its expansion in BGC, adding one more office floor with over 250 plug-and-play seats. The aforementioned leasable area offers a wide range of services from call center seat leasing, enclosed offices, shared spaces, and even conferencing facilities. Built with modern interior design, contemporary furniture, and furnished workstations, the company’s new serviced office in Inoza Tower is now operational and, as of writing, has started to house multinational organizations and startup businesses across various industries.

Moreover, Sales Rain has been constantly expanding its flexible seat leasing services by continuously innovating its services and implementing adaptable arrangements to meet today’s latest requirements as the world transitions to ‘new normal.’ Carrying uninterrupted support to its community, the company has stopped offering its hotdesk coworking services and instead converted these open areas into several private and secured office spaces for the safety of its members. Mid 2021, Sales Rain has launched a hybrid work model giving its clients full flexibility to work on-site and remotely as well as standalone desktops and laptops for lease to help businesses expand their IT capabilities at a cost-effective monthly rate.

Country Head Mr. Vin Kumar adds.

“We are thankful to our clients for keeping their trust and believing in us for so many years. One of the main reasons for our growth especially during the pandemic and for us to continue to lead in our space is the strong relationships we have built with our clients over the years. This is mainly because of the vision and mission statement set by our CEO—Mr. Rajeev on customer relationship and client management. All employees of Sales Rain, be it Account Managers, IT Support, Facilities, Finance are strongly driven by our vision statement. At Sales Rain we value what comes after the contract is signed.”

The company, together with its team of high-performing professionals, will continue to focus on creating sustainable working environments in line with today’s emerging trends to serve its clients better. Persistently building resilience throughout many challenges, Sales Rain has remained successful as 2021 ends expanding its services in Metro Manila’s leading business districts.
