Our History

Founded in 2008, SOPHI, Inc. is a boutique outsourcing center based in Dumaguete City, Philippines. As the main contact center for Boston-based start-up, StudentsOnly.com, we started as a small 7-person team and initially provided enrollment verification services to StudentUniverse.com, the largest online student travel agency in the US. In 2009, we provided back-office services and B2B appointment setting to our sister company, Edhance.com, a student rewards program bought out by BuyWithMe (now with Gilt Groupe).  Since 2012, we have been providing customer service, phone support, and virtual assistance to various international companies.
