Americanized education systemThe Philippines school system uses a similar structure to the school system in America.

Periphonics Interactive Voice Response System (IVRS)Some call centres in the Philippines utilize the Periphonics Interactive Voice Response System (IVRS), or a similar system. An IVRS system automates a portion of its services to increase customer service without having to hire additional employees. The system is able to interact with voices, or in some cases the callers telephone keypad, to direct the caller to the appropriate department.
Neutral accentIn the Philippines, 70% of the population speaks English, making it the third in size of countries with English speakers. Because of this and the Americanized education system, many Filipinos speak English in a neutral accent. This means that the person speaking is understood by any listener, regardless of region or nationality, and that you may not be able to identify the speaker's nationality by an accent.
