February 16, 2009

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Feb. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — eTelecare Global Solutions (Pink Sheets: ETEL), a leading provider of complex business process outsourcing (BPO) solutions, has expanded an agreement with a leading telecommunications provider whereby it will provide an additional queue to this longstanding client’s inbound sales program. The additional services — designed to help the client’s U.S. customers add new communications lines or upgrade to newer or higher-tier phones — will be delivered from a new contact center located outside Managua, Nicaragua operated by eTelecare Nicaragua, a joint venture between eTelecare and Almori BPO Services, Inc.

eTelecare’s business philosophy, investing to outperform, creates real, sustainable value for clients by investing in people, processes, and technology — leading to breakthrough results. By taking a consultative approach to identifying and meeting the needs of this client’s customers, eTelecare has used its U.S. and Philippine delivery centers for more than four years to consistently deliver high customer satisfaction and high average revenue per user (ARPU). These same global best practices will be utilized in Nicaragua.

“After visiting our facilities in Nicaragua, where we have access to a high-quality multilingual labor pool, this industry leader expressed confidence in eTelecare’s ability to deliver high performance and significant value,” said John Harris, President and CEO of eTelecare. Harris noted that this marks the first time that eTelecare will be delivering English-language services from a region other than the U.S. or the Philippines.

Due to the time zone and geographic proximity to the U.S., its high-growth economy, strong U.S. and Canadian cultural affinity, robust telecommunications infrastructure, and large pool of skilled multi-lingual workers, Nicaragua offers an ideal location from which to meet the growing demand for Spanish and English contact center services.
