Datamatics sets up Development Center in China with DarwinSuzsoft

Bangalore and Shanghai - 28 March 2006

Partnership to leverage the strengths and synergies of both organizations leading to multiple value-additions to enterprise customers

Datamatics Limited, IT consulting and services company, announced setting up of a 20,000 square-meter software development center in the Suzhou Industrial Park with DarwinSuzsoft, one of the leading ITO/BPO companies in China, providing software design, engineering and quality assurance services.

The center, currently 50 software engineers in strength, will focus on developing software and enterprise-wide technology solutions. Leveraging the excellent infrastructure in SIP, China, it will connect directly with Datamatics’ US & Mumbai facilities to provide end-to-end solutions including BPO Data Capture/Entry work. It will further ramp up its strength to 1,500 within the next 18 months. This center has the full support and backing of the SIP government. At its peak, it will be the largest development center ever set up by an Indian IT company in partnership with China.

Datamatics Limited will be outsourcing some of its development tasks to the center while continuing its involvement in high-end software design, custom application management and project management phases, as well as in strategic business areas like customer relationship management.

Speaking at the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding, Rahul Kanodia, Managing Director, Datamatics Limited, said, “The collaborative partnership with DarwinSuzsoft was logical for us strategically. We have been continually looking at options to improve our competitive advantage, and continue our focus on providing high-end value-added solutions to our global customers. Through our partner, we have access to a younger pool of software talent, while DarwinSuzsoft has access to our three decades of expertise in the global market.”

James Tong, President Asia, DarwinSuzsoft, added, “Enterprises worldwide currently require partners who can grow with them at lower costs. In China we create capabilities to ensure we deliver just the right solutions. China has excellent raw engineering talent and by partnering with Datamatics, we hope to leverage our partner’s deep knowledge of project management and capability to deliver end-to-end IT/BPO solutions on a global scale.”
