Robinsons Land Corporation (RLC) has opened prime office spaces in the expanded Robinsons Place Ilocos Norte to cater to the business process outsourcing sector, which is finding it more advantageous to locate in the provinces.
Robinsons Land is a workspace provider of Top IT/ITES/BPO companies operating in the Philippines and it continues to expand its office buildings portfolio in strategic locations in both Metro Manila and the provinces.
The new Ilocos office is one of several provincial offices of Robinsons Land including Robinsons Luisita in Tarlac City, Robinsons Cybergate Cebu and Robinsons Galleria Cebu in Cebu City, Cybergate Delta in Davao City, and Cybergate Naga in Naga City.
“BPO companies locate in the provinces to take advantage of less competition for talent; lower office rental rates and lower cost of talent,” said RLC Office Buildings Division General Manager Faraday D. Go.
He noted that, “the location can also serve as a back-up site for BCP purposes and there is a significantly lower entry-level salary base as compared to Metro Manila. There are also sufficient telecommunications infrastructure in these provinces as well.”
The PEZA-registered Ilocos office space is located in three of the four floors of the expansion building of Robinsons Place Ilocos and features large office floor plates of about 3,100 square meters with a total leasable area of 7,829.24 square meters.
The building is equipped with energy-saving variable refrigerant flow (VRF) Air conditioning system; Fire Alarm Detection System (FDAS), fire sprinklers and smoke detectors; CCTV surveillance with 24/7 security; and multiple telecom providers.
It also has 24/7 operation capability with 100 percent back-up power, exclusive lobby and elevators for office tenants, has connection going to the mall, space for a recruitment center at the ground floor, as well as signage options for tenants.
