Philippine call center participates in NYC Marathon

Open Access BPO is sending three of its employees to the world´s biggest marathon, the TCS New York City Marathon.

The event will be held on November 6.

Employees Clint Ortiz, Alberto Agulto, and Leo Peñas are running as part of Ryan´s Run, one of the Silver Charity partners of the TCS New York City Marathon. Ryan´s Run is a nonprofit fundraising campaign that supports the Allied Services Integrated Health System in developing rehabilitation technologies. The funds they raise help thousands of people in the United States in recovering from injuries and physical disabilities. Open Access BPO, as one of the six principal sponsors of Ryan´s Run, yearns to champion this cause.

The three marathoners from Open Access BPO are currently training for the massive sporting event by running uphill in low-temperature locations. They will also be participating in the Nat Geo Earth Day Run on April 17, where they will be featured by members of the local press.

Aside from serving as one of the six principal sponsors of Ryan´s Run, Open Access BPO has also taken part in several outreach programs both in the Philippines and the United States. The company has recently donated several computers and chairs to the special education department of the Iowa Lakes Community College (ILCC). ILCC provides assistance to students with learning disabilities.

Since its inception in 2006, Open Access BPO evolved from primarily offering telemarketing services into an all-encompassing offshoring solutions firm specializing in multilingual customer service and content moderation solutions.

Today, the American company extends its expertise to both growing enterprises and established international brands from its offices in Makati City, Philippines, and Taipei, Taiwan. Its more than 800 employees concentrate on providing a wide range of outsourcing solutions, including multilingual customer support options.
