ExlService Holdings, Inc., a leading provider of outsourcing and transformation services, today announced plans to set up two new delivery centers in Noida and Jaipur in India. These centers will expand EXL’s global services capacity, support new client acquisitions and enable greater flexibility to meet client requirements. It will also strengthen EXL’s ability to provide a stronger business continuity framework.
The new facilities are located in Special Economic Zones (SEZ). The cost and tax structures of SEZ facilities would help sustain EXL’s competitiveness in the global market. With the addition of these two facilities, EXL will have 16 delivery centers and offices spread across ten locations in six countries.
“It is essential for EXL to provide our clients with a world-class infrastructure that meets their multi-shore global delivery requirements. The expanded service delivery will effectively sustain our leadership position while creating new value propositions for our clients,” said Rohit Kapoor, President and Chief Executive Officer of EXL. “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 centers.”
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 centers of EXL.
The Jaipur facility will be EXL’s first center in a tier two Indian location. Jaipur is located approximately 250 kilometers from New Delhi. It is an attractive location due to lower operating costs and ease of access to a qualified talent pool. This 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. EXL will focus on providing finance and accounting and transaction processing services from this facility.
