- By Reuel John F. Lumawag RJL

FLATWORLD Solutions - Philippine­s, Inc. (FSP) is eying to expand by 250 seats by the end of this year, an executive said.

"Considerin­g the past few years we have been here, we have been growing substantia­lly and we are optimistic because of our sales and growth projection. Considerin­g the way where the company is heading in the next ten years we will definitely increase the number of seats and people," said Ajit Sivarajan, FSP Head for Service Delivery, in an interview with SunStar Davao on Monday evening.

He said by the end of 2017 they hope to have 750 seats, which is 250 seats more than their current 500 seats. However, he said they could go beyond the projected additional 250 seats.

"At the same time [we would like to] increase the utilizatio­n of the existing seats in multiple shifts," said Sivarajan.

He added that with the current number of projects they have, their utilizatio­ns is "a bit of a toss" because of overlappin­g and having different projects with different timings.

"What we want to eventually achieve is... seats are better utilized for the day," Sivarajan said.

He also said with the target to increase their number of seats, they are also looking into the possibilit­y of having or adding a new location aside from their headquarte­rs in Lapu-lapu St., Davao City, which is also their only site in the Philippine­s.

"I think we are maxed out [in our current location]; we cannot add more seats. So we would be looking at a diiferent office space," Sivarajan said.

However, he said they still have to look into if they will move the office entirely to a new location or simply just expand to a new location.

Aside from the expansion, FSP is also diversify- ing its agents in terms of languanges they know as the company move towards multi-lingual voice and nonvoice services. Currently, they have agents who know the Spanish language. In the future, they are also looking into adding agents who know Mandarin, French, and German.

Flatworld Solutions Philippine­s, Inc. (FSP) is one of the many business process outsourcin­g (BPO) sites of Indian based ICT-BPO company Flatworld Solutions (FWS).

The company offers solutions in IT, business consulting, and outsourcin­g services.
