Close on the heels of its acquisition by Serco Group plc, a leading FTSE 100 international service company, Intelenet today announced its foray into the Middle East market with the opening of a 200-seat outsourcing facility in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
Intelenet's new delivery centre will offer multilingual capabilities in English, Arabic, Hindi, Tagalog and various other languages. The facility, which went live today, will start off by offering services to clients in the telecommunications, and banking and financial services industries amongst others. The new Intelenet facility is located in the Dubai Outsource Zone (DOZ), an economic hub developed with sophisticated infrastructure and an environment specifically conducive for organizations that engage in mid to high-end information technology and business processing outsourcing.
"Our Dubai centre is the next step in our growth strategy, adding a new region that both expands our global footprint and furthers our ability to deliver end-to-end outsourcing solutions around the world," said Mr. Susir Kumar, Chief Executive Officer, Intelenet Global Services. "The facility in the Dubai Outsource Zone will help us establish an onshore presence in an important market, and provide local employment opportunities. Furthermore, our presence in UAE will serve as a hub to cater to other Middle East geographies."
