Make Sure Your Home Renovation is Done by Experts

| Read more...
With the slow turnover of homes in a depressed economy, many homeowners choose to update their home rather than sell their current property and purchase a different one. Sometimes the owner has the knowledge and ability to do the work themselves, but it is more likely the job will require the services of a building contractor. Finding the right contractor can be tricky, so prior research and consulting with several contractors is recommended before hiring one. Renovation Experts is just one of the available building contractors that offer their remodeling expertise in nearly any area of the home.

Kitchens and bathrooms are the most popular home remodeling projects, but increasing the usable living space in a home is also a wise choice. Claiming additional space can often be accomplished by finishing a basement or converting unused attic space to an additional bedroom. Both of these projects increase the living space and home equity without adding to the original footprint of the home.

Sometimes people find it necessary to relocate to a different city or another area of the country so their current home must be sold. Sellers often schedule needed updates before listing their home to attract more prospective buyers and increase the possible sale price. A knowledgeable building contractor can advise the homeowner concerning which updates will add the most value to the home at the most reasonable cost.

Open Access BPO: World-class Philippine-based outsourcing firm

| Read more...
Business process outsourcing (BPO) service provider, Open Access BPO, was founded in 2006 as a telemarketing startup in San Carlos, California. The company moved its operations to its current facilities in Makati City a year later where it began expanding its services. This was a strategic move that was driven by the Philippines' potential as an outsourcing hub.

As one of today's fastest growing outsourcing companies, Open Access BPO's lineup of services include customer care and technical support, telesales, content and social media moderation, data entry, and other back office solutions. In addition to this, the company recently added multilingual customer support to its growing portfolio of services, enabling it to offer its voice and non-voice-based solutions in 27 languages.

Unlike most outsourcing companies that offer package deals with pre-selected services, Open Access BPO employs a boutique-style approach that lets its clients customize the solutions they outsource. To ensure that the resulting business solutions meet every client's unique demands, the company works closely with them for all aspects of the campaign—from development, to deployment and its daily operations.

Another key aspect that fuels the company's continuous growth is its employees. Open Access BPO only hires the best workers for its outsourcing functions, with each employee undergoing rigorous training before eventually graduating to the production floor.

The Philippines, a multicultural nation, and its bilingual population have driven the company's array of operations. First were the English-proficient employees, followed by those who are fluent in the aforementioned languages that the company supports—all empowering the company's international clients. Satellite facilities in Taiwan were recently established to further strengthen its Chinese-based services.

With over 600 employees operating out of its facilities in the US and Asia, Open Access BPO clients include global businesses of all sizes, including Fortune 500 corporations.

Celebrating Chinese New Year is a big and special part of our Tsinoy culture.  Thus, I decided to join in the festivities at Solaire Resort and Casino where I witnessed the Lion Dance.

Nothing is more nostalgic to me in welcoming the Chinese New Year than the long and colorful dancing dragon as it chases the "Pearl of Wisdom", the dancing lions, the laughing Buddha and the heart-pounding sound of the beating drums.

Starting from the VIP entrance towards the main lobby and various areas of the resort, the dancers exhibited their acrobatic prowess.
