Tudor Consultants to open BPO service center in Kingston, Jamaica

03 August 2018 Authored by Consultancy.lat

Global management consulting firm Tudor Consultants has announced that they will launch a service center in Jamaica’s capital. The center will be run in conjunction with US based debt collectors Account Discovery Systems.

Kingston was recently named Nearshore City of the Year at the Nexus 2018 event held in San Fransisco earlier this year. The award solidified the city’s status as the next king of outsourcing in the Caribbean.

According to a recent report by Nearshore Americas, the city is in a period of transformation with an extra 5,000 jobs in the pipeline. There has also been a recent uptick in the amount of real estate growth specifically for the outsourcing industry in the past year. Over $22 million has been spent on either new buildings or refurbishments across the city.

“Jamaica has been working at this for a long time, and we have one of the greatest BPO products in the world,” Claude Duncan, Vice President at JAMPRO said. “We are on a mission to let people know that Jamaica is more than tourism.”

“In the outsourcing space we have doubled the BPO workforce from 15,000 to 31,000 in five years. Companies have come to Jamaica for the talent pool and the trust element – if you can trust your honeymoon to Jamaica, you can trust your customer service to Jamaica.”

The city will play host to the new service center for Tutor Consulting, adding approximately 100 local jobs in the next 18 months. The majority of which will be customer service agents and the center will hold an additional 50 spaces for Account Discovery Systems (ADS).

In a joint press release, Tudor US CEO Murthy Devarabhotla stated, "Tudor Consultants USA is excited to sign this agreement and Memorandum of Understanding with ADS to provide services from our new state-of-the-art facility through our wholly owned subsidiary, Tudor Jamaica BPO”

“With the launch of this business venture, we are bringing a combined 150 new jobs and even greater opportunity to the Kingston area. In addition to this new agreement, we also agreed to cooperate in the areas of mutual interests like Pharmaceuticals."

John Chebat of ADS went on to say, “This facility will have a tremendous impact in Kingston and will represent a significant milestone for both companies. I am very proud that we can have such a positive effect on an area’s economy and people.”
