The company, which registered a 39 per cent growth in revenues in FY08, serves 300 domestic customers, including biggies like NDTV, INX, BSNL, Bharti Airtel, Hindustan Unilever and the Central Government.

With the acquisition of Frontline Technologies, it aims to provide IT consulting, infrastructure services, systems integration, and IT&application management outsourcing to local, regional and multinational customers.
