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.
