MphasiS, one of India s largest and fastest growing IT services companies is to start operations in Sri Lanka, mid this year.
In line with its operations and reputation in India, MphasiS Lanka plans to become one of the largest IT/BPO/KPO operations in Sri Lanka.
As of now the company has a strong presence across India, Singapore, China, Japan, Europe, North America and Australia.
Working with the aim of delivering global infrastructure technology outsourcing, applications services outsourcing and business process outsourcing services through a combination of technology know-how, domain and process expertise, MphasiS comes into the Sri Lankan market with operations worth US$ 3.5 m.
The MOU in this regard was signed by BOI Chairman/ Director General Dhammika Perera and Director, MphasiS Lanka M.G.Raghuraman. With its entry into Sri Lanka, MphasiS will provide immediate career opportunities and its unique, first of its kind India scholarship program.
MphasiS plans to set up an offshore delivery center in Colombo, which will be an extended arm of the various locations that MphasiS operates in India. The Sri Lankans hired for their India operations would form a pilot team of key employees who will learn various processes and work culture of MphasiS and its clients, by getting trained on the job at different locations in India.
The training and learning that these employees acquire during their stay in India will enable them to create a similar work atmosphere and culture at our centre in Colombo, on their return to MphasiS Lanka office.
The centre which would be operational by the middle of 2010 will start work with 500 employees, gradually increasing this number to up to 2,000 employees over the next three years.
The centre will provide applications, BPO and ITO services to clients globally.
MphasiS chief corporate development officer Dinesh Venugopal said, they see the entrance into Sri Lanka as a positive move since they have identified a rich talent pool in the country, which we hope will help our company diversify and grow.
Also, MphasiS s investment into Sri Lanka will fuel our growth into emerging destinations for IT outsourcing.
The MphasiS Career Fair for potential professional recruits will be held on the May 9 and 10, at the Cinnamon Grand, Colombo, where they will seek out individuals with talent, passion and the will to excel, keen on succeeding with a dynamic, international company.
