New Delhi: India's largest software exporting company Tata Consultancy Services is planning to set up a 500-seat new delivery centre in Mexico. The company currently has an office in Mexico but not a delivery base. The new delivery centre is expected to be operational by 2007 end, and will largely focus on IT services with some BPO capabilities.
At present, TCS has 71 delivery centres across 14 countries.
Outside India, its main delivery locations are Brazil, Uruguay and Chile. Brazil, Uruguay and Chile together house 4,000 professionals. The company also has delivery units in Hungary and China, and smaller facilities in Australia and Japan.
During the last quarter (October-December 2006), TCS had reported a 30 per cent increase in revenues from global delivery centres (GDC). With this, the non-India GDCs account for 4.1 pc of the company's overall revenues.
Going forward, TCS will also scale up its operations in Hungary and China. The company has 800 professionals in China.
Last week, TCS also announced the launch of its joint venture in China, christened Tata Consultancy Services (China), to provide IT services and solutions to China's domestic market as well as other markets particularly Japan.
In India, TCS has 41 delivery centres spread across Chennai, Hyderabad, Delhi, Kolkata and smaller centres in Cochin, Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Bhubaneshwar, and Coimbatore.
