iYogi, a consumer tech support services provider, is setting up its first global technology services center in Lewiston, Maine, North America.
The center will employ 300 people and will support the company’s product and services innovation strategy to address the opportunities arising from the proliferation of computing and IoT devices.
Argo will be holding a job fair on Monday, July 13 from 9 am -12 pm and from 3 pm-6 pm at the Lewiston Career Center. Applicants can also walk into the Argo office on Lisbon St. Those selected will undergo a three-week training program jointly conducted by iYogi and Argo, and supported by the state of Maine.
iYogi has partnered with Argo Marketing of Lewiston to set up and operate the delivery center. The company will be supported by the State Department of Labor and Career Center networks to design and implement recruiting and workforce training programs.
“North America is our largest market, and hundreds of thousands of users rely on our service to get more out of the technology they use in their daily lives. The needs of our customers are evolving rapidly – they’re facing newer challenges and are interested in innovative ways of receiving support,” said Vishal Dhar, co-founder and president of Marketing for iYogi.
Through the center, the company plans to pilot several new initiatives in the continent, including a hosted platform to harness the work at home community, and a mobile application based service that offers onsite tech support.
