Indian BPO Aegis today inaugurated 600 seats facility in Colombo, Sri Lanka to offer IT solutions to enterprises in telecom, BFSI, retail, consumer, hospitality and technology.
The center has the potential to create 1,000 direct and 1,500 indirect jobs across Colombo.
Depending upon the business requirements, it would also cater to the off shore markets for the high end back office process management.
The company entered Sri Lanka in 2009 with acquisition of 80 percent shares of Ismart – Timex, which over the years has grown to over 350 professionals serving leading enterprises across Sri Lanka.
Aegis is planning to set up more centers in Tier II and III towns of Northern and Southern Sri Lanka and is currently in discussion with several state government and local bodies.
Sandip Sen, global CEO, Aegis, said: “Aegis Sri Lanka reinforces the strategy of providing our customers the opportunity to tap a skilled talent market that is more aligned to their end user experience and life time value.”
Sudhir Agarwal, president Global M&A and Strategic Initiatives, Aegis, said: “Aegis has been steadily expanding its footprint in the Indian BPM market and the launch of this facility in Sri Lanka strengthens our footprint in South Asia.”
