DURBAN. SOUTH AFRICA. WELCOME.
A BUSINESS DESTINATION
Durban means business.
Famous for being the busiest port in South Africa, Durban has everything you’d expect from a first-world country, except the costs! Our city is full of friendly, energetic people from many different backgrounds creating its own unique, vibrant multi-culture. We’re located in the most prestigious and economically booming area of Durban. We happily occupy our purpose-built, state-of-the-art facility in Umhlanga overlooking the beautiful and tranquil Chris Saunders Park and the largest shopping centre complex in the Southern Hemisphere. We love our location, but it’s no accident how we got here. Durban was carefully chosen for its skilled workforce - the largest in South Africa. And our Government understands how to work with companies like us to best utilise the available incentives, accreditation schemes and training programmes that allow us to maintain a competitive cost advantage over the other provinces – up to 10-20% lower. So when we say, Durban means business – we mean it.
"...it is most appropriate for organisations to establish customer service and sales delivery from South Africa where they are seeking an onshore level of customer experience, either at a significantly lower cost point than available onshore or to complement existing onshore capability."
Nelson Hall. Analysis of South Africa as a BPO Delivery Location, 2011.
"...as analysts of the Asia Pacific BPO market for the last 15 years it is our informed opinion that South Africa is now one of the most suitable destinations for English speaking voice or customer service related work in this region."

Our beautiful country has enormous potential as an investment destination, offering a combination of highly developed, first world economic infrastructure, and a vibrant emerging market economy. For South Africa’s highly motivated people, determination and hard work are a way of life. With our youth hungry for knowledge, skills and opportunity South Africa has a wealth of talent striving for a bright future. South Africa is one of the most sophisticated, diverse and promising emerging markets globally. It is also one of the most advanced, broad-based industrial and productive economies in Africa. South Africa has a world-class telecommunications network and technology Infrastructure. With the contact centre market growing steadily in South Africa, it’s no wonder international organisations are setting-up businesses here or using South Africa as a preferred outsource country. South Africa really does have it all; the right people, top-end technology, the cost benefits – so it is no surprise it’s growing bigger and faster economically and leading the way
