Scicom Business Process Outsourcing (BPO)
Sustained economic growth in most Asian countries has resulted in strong consumer markets and rising expectations for customer care. As such, support discussions have shifted from being primarily cost-based, to being more focused on the delivery of enhanced customer experiences, building trust and loyalty, and towards customer retention. Despite these developments, some companies still lack a strategic approach to Asian customer care, with support operations largely unprepared for events that disrupt day-to-day business, be they natural disasters or new opportunities.

For Scicom, establishing our BPO operations centre in Malaysia in 1997 was a strategic decision, driven by our core mission to deliver high quality, pan-regional English, and Asian multi-lingual customer care and CX services. Malaysia is a BPO hub, home to a dozen Global and Malaysian BPOs and several large MNC in-house Care centres, which provide employment to tens of thousands of multi-lingual staff. Malaysia was recently ranked as the 3rd best BPO destination in the world (2017), with the BPO market expected to grow at a compounded annual rate of 7.9% to a value of US$1.4 billion by the end of 2021. Some of the key factors that make this market so attractive for BPO services are:
Highly-skilled, Multi-Lingual Workforce
The Malaysian workforce is highly educated, with approximately 300,000 Malaysians graduating from local institutions of higher education each year. Malaysian nationals invariably speak at least two (2) if not three (3) languages including Bahasa Malaysia, English, Mandarin and Cantonese, making it an ideal global hub for companies with pan Asian-based operations. Given the Government's support for foreign knowledge worker visas and Malaysia’s own multi-lingual population, Malaysia is also an excellent place to hire foreign knowledge workers who have the same accent as your customers. Scicom alone has more than a thousand native-speakers from more than fifty (50) nations who speak Japanese, Korean, Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese), Vietnamese, Thai, Bahasa (Malaysia and Indonesia), Arabic, English and other European and African languages.
Government Support & Legal Environment
The Malaysian government has undertaken various initiatives to develop the domestic BPO industry. The National Key Economic Area (NKEA) for Business Services focuses on building globally competitive outsourcers, with a target of creating value-add BPO jobs in Malaysia. This initiative is championed by Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) and Outsourcing Malaysia. Furthermore, Malaysia has enacted strict intellectual property (IP) protection laws, being a member of the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO), as well as a signatory to both the Paris and Berne conventions that govern IP rights, while also adhering to the European Union General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).
Safe Environment with Modern Infrastructure
Malaysia is absent of natural events such as typhoons and earthquakes which can severely disrupt BPO operations in other Asian locations, while also ranking 35th out of 140 countries in the World Economic Forum's 2019/2020 Report's "Infrastructure" ranking, which is largely due to its extensive transport, utility and telecommunications infrastructure.
