“I personally interview and approve each candidate”Graham Innes
Founder & CEO
After testing our candidates using written, verbal IQ and typing tests, our British Founder and CEO, Graham Innes personally interviews each candidate before we present them to you for final selection.
How It Works
We have the experience and resources necessary for your team to succeed
1. Build & Train Your Team
We’ll find the perfect candidates, pre-screen and present them to you for interview. No payment is due until you have selected candidates, and a two week training period is included free of charge.
2. Set up your Tools
Set your new team members up with access to your tools and resources to get everyone on the same page. We happily work with RingCentral, Vonage, Five9, Salesforce, Freshdesk, LiveChat, Zendesk, Skype, Slack, Hangouts and many more widely used tools and apps.
3. Work Directly With Your Staff
You have direct access to every member of your team via your preferred communications tool (phone extension, Skype, Slack, Hangouts etc.) and our Ops Managers are always there to keep things on track, set KPIs with you and meet with you regularly to make sure things are going to plan.

Watch your team at work via screenshots taken automatically at random intervals (between 3 and 5 minutes). You can access them anytime via a secure web gallery. Screenshots are kept for 30 days.
Bulletproof Service Delivery
Smiles Relief Team
For every 5 to 8 dedicated staff, we engage 1 dedicated reliever. Our relievers step in when one of your team is absent or on leave, so you can always depend on reliable service delivery.
Relievers are included in the price and participate fully in your training as well as day to day operations when they’re not covering for someone.
If your team is less than 5, your reliever will be shared with another team, but a reliever will never be shared with more than 2 teams.
Experienced Ops Managers
Our 24/7 team of Operations Managers are responsible for your team’s success. They are there during initial training so they understand your needs and expectations. They oversee your team on a day to day basis, and they’re your primary point of contact for operational issues.
Let their years of experience in driving teams to success do wonders for your business.
Failsafe IT & Power Infrastructure
Our IT systems are designed from the ground up to be fully redundant – that means that any server, switch, router or internet connection can fail without causing major disruption to service delivery.
During power outages, our centralized UPS systems power our offices until our generators kick in. We can run on generator power indefinitely, allowing us to continue to provide service even if utility power is down for an extended time (such as after a strong earthquake or typhoon for example).
Free two-week Training
Get started risk free
After interviewing and selecting candidates, we’ll give you two weeks to train and work with your new team before they become chargeable.
We do the heavy lifting to get you up and running in no time
Get in Touch
Let us know what type of staff you’re looking for and how you want things to work so we can tailor a solution that’s a perfect fit for your business. We’ll prepare a Proposal and Outsourcing Agreement within 24 hours.
Review & Sign Agreement
We keep things straightforward with our Outsourcing Agreement – you won’t find much legalese, but if there’s anything you would like to change or add, just let us know.
Interview & Select Candidates
Use your preferred interview techniques or test routines. We won’t ask for any payment until you have chosen candidates. If none of our candidates are suitable, there is no obligation to pay anything. We recommend that you select one or two more candidates than you will eventually need as these can be filtered during training.
Make Initial Payment & Start Training
We ask for a 2-week advance payment, after which you can start training. The two week training period is completely free – we don’t start billing for your team’s time until they are fully trained. Train your team the way you prefer, via web conferencing, phone, Skype, Webex, screencasting or even in person here in the Philippines.
Eliminate Legal Liabilities
We absorb all employment risks and complications
When you work with Smiles remote teams, there is just a single outsourcing agreement between your business and Smiles. We directly employ staff assigned to your account, so we absorb all the liabilities and risks of employment, reducing your business’ risk profile considerably.
This is the agreement between your company and Smiles On Demand Outsourcing, Inc. that specifies our commitments to you, your commitments to us, pricing and other terms and conditions. In this agreement, we stipulate that employees hired by Smiles for you will be dedicated to working with you on a full-time basis.
We maintain individual employment contracts with each employee hired on your behalf, specifying the terms of employment, such as salary, working hours, confidentiality, intellectual property and termination clauses. All Smiles employment contracts Department of Labor compliant. Non-disclosure agreements may be signed additionally if that is a mandate at your company.
Team members that Smiles hires on your behalf are assigned to work with you on a full-time basis. This way, you can enjoy the full benefits of an employee, without the risks or complications of hiring employees directly.
Cost Efficient, Accessible, Clean
Most of our competitors are located in the Philippines’ biggest cities (Manila, Cebu etc.)
We discovered early on that most employees who work in these locations actually come from more provincial areas forcing them to rent overpriced bedspaces in shanty areas and spend hours commuting to work each day. They can only see their families a few times per year.
We take a different approach: By locating our offices in more provincial cities, we’re able to attract longer term, happier employees who live with their families locally, while spending less on office space and employee housing – savings which we pass on directly to you.
