PCM to move BPO work to Manila

California-based solution provider PCM, Inc. plans to move its services from Pakistan to the Philippines. PCM’s contract with business process outsourcing partner Ovex Technologies terminates on August 18, after receiving a favorable ruling in the feud over an acquisition in 2015. Chief Financial Officer Brandon LaVerne said PCM plans to transfer the services from Ovex to Manila. The company expects to save costs by moving the BPO work to the Philippines, where it already has a presence. PCM’s Q1 sales dropped 4% to $560.1 million from last year’s $581 million. Its strongest products included delivered services and servers, while its top vendors included HP, Microsoft, Dell, and Cisco Systems.
