Infosys signs contract with FESCO to develop HR services platform

IT outsourcing vendor Infosys has signed a contract with Chinese firm FESCO to develop a human resource (HR) services platform called iSynergy.

FESCO is the first Chinese firm to provide professional HR services to foreign enterprises, financial institutions and economic organisations in China.

The Bangalore-headquartered firm said in a statement that FESCO provides services to more than 10,000 global users located in over 100 countries.
With this platform, FESCO’s clients can now access the company’s HR offerings through a single window on iSynergy, using self-service options, Infosys said.

iSynergy, designed by Infosys and powered by Oracle PeopleSoft, is a scalable and secure platform geared to meet FESCO’s growing customer needs.

It will automate a range of services provided by the Chinese firm covering management of personnel information, organisation structure, reporting and payroll.

“As enterprises in China accelerate their transformation and growth, they are looking for partners who understand the requirements of both global and local business environments,” Infosys China chief operating officer Mike Liu said.

Infosys has built world-class delivery capabilities in China with local talent to tap the potential of this fast-growing market, PTI reported.

Incorporated in 2003, Infosys China — which currently employs about 3,300 people — has a sales office in Hong Kong, a global education centre in Jiaxing and development centres in Shanghai, Hangzhou, Beijing and Dalian.

The company is developing a new campus at Zizhu Science and Technology Park in Shanghai.
