In the heart of Capiz, ePerformax officially celebrates the grand opening of their newest facility in the country. Located at the Pueblo de Panay TechnoPark in Roxas City, this new site is further proof of the company’s continued commitment to growing and developing the Philippines as one of the leading BPO service providers in the world.
First opening their doors here on our shores back in 2002, ePerformax Contact Centers & BPO was one of the first contact centers in the Philippines. The company has primarily focused its operations on providing the highest levels of BPO and customer service to a select group of Fortune 500 companies. ePerformax provides support for their English-speaking customers in locations around the globe. The company utilizes voice, email, chat, messaging, and social media to handle customer interactions that include customer service, inbound sales and order entry, billing/account support, technical support, product/service support, website navigation support, and travel reservations, along with non-voice BPO activities to support clients’ comprehensive outsourcing requirements.
Fortunately, Pueblo de Panay TechnoPark is the perfect partner for ePerformax’s goal to create a holistic working environment for their employees. Bub Ong, Pueblo de Panay President and CEO, considers ePerformax a flagship partner in the TechnoPark. “We share the same values,” he says, “our drive to create a welcoming environment here in Pueblo de Panay, a place where people from different walks of life can come together, fits hand-in-hand with their commitment to the local community.”

PRESIDENT AND CEO
As president and CEO of ePerformax Contact Centers & BPO, Teresa Hartsaw is responsible for the strategic leadership driving the focus, performance, growth, and innovation of the company. Since founding ePerformax in 2002 with partner, Transnational Diversified Group, a globally competitive and progressive business group of companies since 1976, the company has grown to over 6,000 employees and trainees in three locations in the Philippines, including Pasay City, Cebu City and its newest in Roxas City, Capiz.
Over the last 15 years, Ms. Hartsaw has observed a significant increase in the complexity of customer service support ePerformax is providing its US clients from the Philippines. As a result, she has focused her attention on ensuring ePerformax employees are capable of handling the complexity. According to Hartsaw, “Gone are the days of simple responses to customer inquiries. Today, customer service organizations are finding their employees need to be experienced problem solvers, great communicators, more like consultants, and less like a traditional call center representative. What’s more, the technology advances are both challenging and benefiting our industry at the same time. The availability of more advanced tools helps our employees do a better job assisting their customers. The challenge comes with more customers becoming comfortable with technology and taking care of their own basic needs with self- service so when they do contact us, they expect a higher level of service. Companies that don’t evolve will not exist in five years. ePerformax is tackling the challenge head on with innovative training and development. We will evolve and do our part in making sure the industry is alive and thriving in the years to come!”
The new facility will also house an ePerformax Global Communications & Management Academy. “The GCMA is part of our continuing strategy to invest in our people so they are ready for the evolution in BPO services,” says Mike Tanner, ePerformax Roxas VP and General Manager. “Our industry is becoming more sophisticated and requires a higher level of professional skills. We are invested in developing our employees to grow in their careers and maximize their potential. We feel fortunate to be here in Roxas and to find such a great community of people to work with.”

He is also responsible for managing all aspects of ePerformax Roxas operations including recruiting, HR, administration, and facilities to support our client programs.
