Native-English Services and Pricing Competitive with India and the Philippines
Qualfon Georgetown Guyana offers a unique combination of outsourcing advantages that can’t be found in any other country.
What Makes Guyana Unique for Outsourcing?
Scalability: Guyana is an outstanding business process outsourcing (BPO) location because, as a native-English-speaking country with roughly 600,000 people in Georgetown, it provides greater scalability. In other countries, only small segments of the population speak English, but Guyana’s English-speaking population provides a large and sustainable talent pool with a 90.1% literacy rate—one of the highest literacy rates in the Caribbean and Latin American region.
English Skills: The Guyanese are skilled, native English speakers when compared to bilinguals across the CALA region. Roughly 70% of Guyanese pass the Versant English language proficiency test, while only 15% of bilinguals pass the test in other Latin American and Caribbean countries. The Guyanese, therefore, have a strong ability to provide services via phone, and these abilities can be a cost-effective alternative to the premiums companies must pay for bilingual employees in neighboring countries.
Cultural Ties: The people of Guyana have a high cultural affinity to the U.S. and understand American customers because they consume American media. These cultural ties result in superior customer experiences.
We believe that the best-kept secret for native English [outsourced services] in Latin America is Guyana. -Michael DeSalles, Principal Analyst at Frost & Sullivan, in an interview with Nearshore Americas
