Mumbai: Infosys Technologies has unveiled the Company's first Latin American subsidiary, by hosting an inaugural ceremony in Monterrey, Mexico that was attended by top dignitaries of the Mexican government and Infosys executives.
The inauguration ceremony was attended by the President of the Mexican United States, His Excellency Felipe de Jesus Calderon Hinojosa, chairman of the board and chief mentor, Infosys, N R Narayana Murthy, and the Governor of the State of Nuevo Leon, Jose Natividad Gonzalez Paras.
The centre is aimed at enhancing services to existing Infosys' clients in the US, Latin America and Europe.
The subsidiary, Infosys Technologies S. De R.L. De CV, provides the company's full range of business consulting and information technology services for clients in all industries including banking, financial services, distribution, retail, and more.
The centre provides key offerings in business process outsourcing (BPO), infrastructure management and packaged solutions implementation.
"Mexico has embraced Infosys and worked with us to establish this innovative development centre," said Mr. Murthy, Infosys Technologies. "Our public-private partnership is already serving a half-dozen global clients in multiple industries and 87 new employees, both new college graduates as well as senior professionals, have joined Infosys so far - remarkable achievements in the first six months since opening the centre."
The Monterrey facility provides Infosys with dedicated resources to service clients in North America, Latin America and Europe, with bilingual talent in an agreeable time zone and close proximity.
Furthermore, it strengthens the company's global delivery model capabilities and joins other Infosys development centres in the Czech Republic, Poland, Thailand, Philippines, China, Australia, Canada and India.
After examining several countries in the region, Infosys chose to establish a presence in Mexico due to the broad language skills available in the region, its cultural similarities to Canada, the US and Europe.
Latin America is a strong emerging market and one where many of Infosys' clients already have operations.
