Philippines continues to get significant share in voice sector – CCAP


Although artificial intelligence and automation are expected to replace most jobs in the voice sector in the long term, the Philippines will continue to keep a significant share in this space, according to the Contact Center Association of the Philippines (CCAP).

Notably, the CCAP also said that only 14% of agents who are doing voice jobs in the Philippines are engaged in low-skills tasks. About 51% are engaged in jobs requiring middle-level skills, such as providing solutions to customers’ problems, processing health insurance claims, domain process assisting, providing technical support, bills collection and outbound selling.
