IT outsourcing business - 12/26/05 04:21 PM

I am new to the Forum.

I am interested in opening an IT outsourcing business in a Caribbean / Central American country. I have capital and am currently in the early research phases of planning. I have had some problems getting Belize chambers to return my calls.

Any Suggestions?

Bruce, I have experience leading U.S. outsourcing efforts for contact centers. If your business idea takes off and you need help -- drop me a PM. Would love to do consulting work that allows me to get to Belize more often. Good luck.

Intelco was outsourcing from their headquarters outside of Ladyville, not sure of the status anymore. There are a good number of online casinos running out of Belize. Communictions costs and reliabilty will be your biggest headache and you'll have to have a DR centre outside of Belize to ensure continuity.

Small world Otteralum, I was the Outsourcing Data Centre Manager for CGI Group in Toronto in the ealry 90's.

That's right. I do remember you saying that when I met you at BCs -- I was near pissed (British-style)-- sorry. It was fun to hear you talk about how you went from IT to provisioning -- a great livin' the dream story.

My apologies for not replying earlier.

Thanks for the information. I will be making these contacts soon. Currently, my front runners in country selection are Belize and the Dominican Republic. Belize seems to have an advantage in “outdoors type” of life. You have the jungle, rivers, ruins and wildlife.

I will post this link to an on line version of my resume so people can know a little bit about me.

Belize looks like a cool place. I may have to do a fact finding trip soon.
