History

Founded by Bill and Becky Holmes in El Paso, Texas, in 1989, DATAMARK, Inc. got its start as one of the first Business Process Outsourcing providers by serving a Fortune 100 overnight transportation carrier with a modest team of 26 employees hand-keying manifests and waybills, and courier reports. The company quickly expanded into providing full back-office services.​

Since then, DATAMARK has become a leading provider of Contact Center and Business Process Outsourcing solutions, specializing in omnichannel, multilingual contact center services, Enterprise Content Management, finance & accounting outsourcing, and loyalty/rewards program management. 

DATAMARK employs more than 3,000 proud staff worldwide today, and we continue to expand in services to our clients.
