Bangalore, Mar 6 (UNI) Udupi-based software application product developer Robosoft is implementing a major expansion plan to double its staff strength of 250 by the year-end and look for a 60 to 70 per cent growth.

The company, with an annual revenue of Rs 12 crore, would in May move to its own campus at Santhekatte in Udupi, with a capacity to handle 800 software professionals in an area of 100,000 sq ft. The initial investment phase would cost the company around Rs 12 crore.

In five years, it would build two similar structures in the new campus to tap the vast human resource available in the highly literate districts in Coastal Karnataka, besides Kerala, Company CEO and Managing Director Rohit Bhat told newspersons here today.

He said the company was supplying products to original equipment manufacturers of the likes of Apple, Hewlett Packard, Canon, UMAX and Intuit and had clients across the globe. Its latest development frameline.net was being used by BBC for editing movies.

Mr Bhat said the company was currently keen on developing products for OEM manufacturers and at a later date it aimed to have its own products.

''Our dream is to make the undivided district of Dakshina Kannada and Uttara Kannada a silicon beach,'' he said.

The three coastal districts with over 16 engineering colleges, including the National Institute of Technology, Suratkal, had a vast talent pool.
