Both companies acknowledged the presence of stereotypes surrounding their industries. Filta addressed the misconception that outsourcing companies are solely focused on sales; they emphasized their commitment to building genuine partnerships and educating businesses about the advantages of outsourcing and nearshoring.

Wavix, on the other hand, highlighted the struggle that they face with spam calls and robot calls. They are taking this hurdle as an opportunity to enhance their systems and improve what’s out there. 

Ensuring Security and Privacy

Both companies prioritized data security and privacy. Wavix stores minimal customer data, adheres to strict compliance standards like PCI and GDPR, and is pursuing ISO certification to further solidify its commitment to international security protocols.

Standing Out from the Crowd

Careful Recruitment and Assessment Process

Filta ensures the quality of its staff through a multi-step process. They begin by collaborating with clients to understand their specific needs and expectations for a role.
