To provide consulting, software development, testing and business process services
Wipro Technologies has opened a new development centre at South Melbourne to provide consulting, software development, testing and business process services to domestic and global companies in Australia, including Origin Energy.
Wipro started operations in Australia in 2002 and has operations in New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia. The company said that it has chosen Melbourne due to its conducive business environment, ready talent pool and the city’s infrastructure.
Wipro said that the new centre will broaden its service capabilities along with its existing presence in Paramatta and Adelaide. The centre currently employs around 130 people mostly Australian nationals and the IT major plans on increasing this headcount as and when the business demands.
Rajat Mathur, SVP and chief sales and operations officer at Wipro said: “Wipro is extremely pleased to be increasing its investment in Australia by establishing this new centre in Melbourne. Australia is an important market for us and we enjoy a good deal of business success here as Australian companies demonstrate a continued appetite for our global service delivery model. Wipro looks forward to continued investment in the state of Victoria and elsewhere in Australia.”
