New Delhi, Sept 28 (UNI) Country's largest software exporter Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) today said it has consolidated its operations in Uruguay and Argentina into a single unit to provide nearshore services to other Latin American countries, the US and Europe.
The company has appointed a new country manager for the unit, which will be expanded to 1,200 employees within a year, TCS said in a statement.
Mr Mario Tucci, Vice President (Business Development), will be the country manager of the new unit.
''This region has very highly trained human resources. English language skills and an attractive cost structure, which makes it a natural base for exporting services to other countries. Leveraging these conditions, we intend to grow to 1,200 employees this year and double our headcount and client base over the next 2-3 years,'' Mr Tucci said.
TCS will expand its infrastructure by setting up a new world class building for over 400 professionals to be inaugurated in Montevideo in November this year.
In the financial year April 06-March 07, the Global Delivery Centre operating in Montevideo exported services worth over 30 million dollars to clients across the world including Colombia, Spain, Mexico, Chile, the US and parts of Europe.
