The Replacemyself.com folks have a very believable story on why outsourcing to the Philippines is so much better than India, etc. But their marketing is so slick that I'm dubious.
Are these claims (about the Philippines), correct (in general)?:
- Have excellent English
- Are well educated
- Are loyal
- Not Entrepreneurial (thus much less likely to steal your virtual company out from under you or simply compete with you).
I hvae read in Software Without Borders that Philippine workers are well educated, speak English well, and that the one downside is a lack of good project managers (all consistent with what Jonas says).
