Azpired Inc launches travel unit

To meet the travel demand of business process outsourcing (BPO) workers, local business process outsourcing (BPO) firm Azpired Inc has launched Azpire Travel. The 10-year-old BPO firm headquartered in Cebu IT Park has set up a travel agency to meet the demands of BPO employees. Almira Absin, the company’s general manager, said Azpire Travel was started because of people’s desire to travel a lot. Azpired’s 1,500 employees are enthusiastic about travel, both to domestic and international destinations. Azpire Travel offers tour packages to Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, Japan, Korea, US and other destinations, aside from ticketing and hotel reservations. Last year, it primarily served employees who can pay for trips through salary deductions.
