My-Checkpoints creates a work platform that helps workers counter boredom at work by allowing them to play against each other while improving performance along the way.

MANILA, Philippines – You can tell an industry has made it when the economy starts rearranging itself to support it. In recent recent years the BPO (Business Process Outsourcing) sector has shone brighter than the rest and many new businesses are coming up to find ways to better exploit its potential.

Even largely traditional sectors such as real estate has seen radical new models to cater towards BPOs needs; from helping firms find flexible office space to cutting down on BPO worker’s commuting times.

One aspect of BPO life that has gone relatively unexplored however is worker performance and company culture which is where startup My-Checkpoints wants to play in.
