Computer Systems, a provider in

IT and BPO services, announced plans to significantly augment its

Gujarat delivery operations with the opening of their second delivery

center in Gandhinagar. The move is triggered by a recent deal signed

by the company to provide Product Engineering Services (PES) and

Application Development Management (ADM) services to a leading UK

based enterprise.

Speaking on the launch, Jeya Kumar,

Chief Executive Officer, Patni said, “The inauguration of our new

facility in Gandhinagar demonstrates our sustained commitment to this

region. We are looking at strengthening our presence in this

burgeoning IT delivery hub and expect Gandhinagar to play a crucial

part in this delivery expansion strategy.”

The headcount of the existing center

stands at 400 and the new center plans to hire an additional 350,

taking the total to over 750 employees in the next one year. Anil

Gupta, EVP and Global Head- Business Support, Patni said, “Over

the last few years, Gujarat has emerged as an extremely

investor-friendly destination with world class infrastructure, SEZ

benefits and a rich talent pool. Additionally our facility is based

on principles of green architecture thus cementing our commitment to

green initiatives. We are happy to have chosen Gandhinagar to house

two of our significant delivery units.”
