eTelecare Expands Agreement With Leading Telecommunications Provider

    SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Feb. 16 /CNW/ -- 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

    "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.
