About Us

In 2005, many Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) companies visited Iloilo to check its readiness to become a BPO hub outside Manila. But it was found it to be unprepared. With this need, DTI-Iloilo organized a forum in 9th of March 2006 entitled "Answering the Call to Outsourcing". The challenge to answer the call of outsourcing, the local stakeholders were inspired to replicate the same model of Cebu.

The model was replicated in Iloilo, the Visioning and Organizational set-up was done. This was facilitated by Dr. Glenn D. Aguilar, the newly installed Chancellor of the University of the Philippines Visayas at that time.
