To expand its global services capacity and support new client acquisitions
ExlService, a provider of outsourcing and transformation services, said that it plans to set up two new delivery centres in Noida and Jaipur in India.
The company said that the centres, located in Special Economic Zones (SEZ), will expand its global services capacity, support new client acquisitions and will also strengthen its ability to provide a stronger business continuity framework.
ExlService said that the cost and tax structures of SEZ facilities would help sustain competitiveness in the global market. With the addition of these two facilities, the company will have 16 delivery centres and offices spread across ten locations in six countries.
According to ExlService, the new Noida facility will have a capacity of over 800 seats spread over 100,000 square feet in the first phase and another 1400 spread over 120,000 square feet in the second phase. The first phase is expected to be operational in the third quarter of 2010. Noida is currently home to six delivery centres of EXL.
The Jaipur facility will be EXL’s first centre in a tier two Indian location. The facility will have a capacity of approximately 500 seats spread over 38,000 square feet and is expected to be operational in the second quarter of 2010.
The company said that the Jaipur facility will focus on providing finance and accounting and transaction processing services.
Rohit Kapoor, president and chief executive officer of EXL, said: The expanded service delivery will effectively sustain our leadership position while creating new value propositions for our clients. Noida and Jaipur are strategic locations because both these regions offer rich talent pools, robust support infrastructure and are in close proximity to several other EXL delivery centres.
