Jones Lang LaSalle sets up BPO center at Bonifacio Global City

By

MANILA, Philippines—International property consisting firm Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) has entered the Philippine business process outsourcing (BPO) market with the establishment of a global hub at the Bonifacio Global City.

In a statement from Singapore, JLL said this new shared services center based in the new W Fifth Avenue building recently started operations.

The new BPO hub aims to support the delivery of help desk functions and vendor management services for the firm’s clients across the world. JLL added that this center was launched “in response to a growing demand from businesses for increased productivity from their corporate real estate portfolios.”

JLL said the Philippine hub would set a new benchmark in sophisticated multiple-service centers for real estate and could process over 700,000 work orders each year via phone and online requests. These will include requests for repairs and maintenance, relocations, security, incident management and workplace services.

The new center will also support vendor management, contract and major procurement activities for JLL’s clients in Asia Pacific, US and Europe.

With the Philippines already a well-established hub for BPO, JLL sees the new center taking advantage of the country’s “strong infrastructure and language capabilities coupled with low operating costs.” JLL cited the importance of business function location in productivity and margin improvement.

“Companies are increasingly seeking innovative partners in corporate real estate that can help them achieve their strategic goals and deliver best practice. In fact, this was one of the most interesting findings from our recent Global Corporate Real Estate Trends 2013 report, showcasing the extent to which real estate outsourcing is increasing across more diverse geographies, sectors and functions,” said Jordi Martin, chair of the Integrated Facilities Management (IFM) global board for JLL.

“By centralizing our help desk services, we can meet our clients’ demands for a global support system that is both consistent and cost effective and, in turn, facilitate improvements in productivity,” he added.

David Leechiu, international director and country head of JLL in the Philippines, added: “We welcome Jones Lang LaSalle’s first BPO office in the country and are pleased to offer these expanded services to our clients across the globe. It is a testament to the excellent talent that the Philippines has to offer and world-class real estate that is available at a fraction of the cost in other markets.”

As a new member of the board of directors of the Information Technology and Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP), Leechiu said JLL was excited to partner with IBPAP and participate in the industry’s road map towards achieving the $25 billion revenue goal by 2016.
