NEW YORK & MUMBAI, India, Jan. 15, 2008–WNS (Holdings) Limited (NYSE: WNS), a leading provider of global business process outsourcing (BPO) services, today announced the launch of a new delivery center in Bucharest, Romania.
The 150 seat facility in Bucharest further expands WNS’ global delivery capability and serves as a nearshore delivery center for global clients with European operations. The center is able to provide multi-lingual services in French, German, Italian and Spanish for clients across a range of industries. At the outset, the center will deliver finance and accounting (F&A) and customer support services. With the launch in Romania, WNS has expanded its global delivery footprint to 14 delivery centers and is developing plans for additional centers in the region.
“Our expansion into Eastern Europe is a key step in enhancing our global footprint and providing comprehensive, integrated solutions to our clients,” said Neeraj Bhargava, CEO of WNS Global Services. “The ability to deliver services in an array of languages supports our clients’ needs for standardization, consolidation, and transformation for improved performance of their business processes.”
Eric Selvadurai, Managing Director – Europe, WNS said, “As a location, Bucharest provides a strong combination of language skills and talent, while still providing a competitive advantage for clients operating in the European Union. Language capability is a key delivery component for those who are increasingly looking to benefit from global delivery models.”
