clients a unique onsite/offshore model that substantially reduces costs as well

would enable the company to have access to a relatively untapped labour pool,
as well as take advantage of competitive labour and infrastructure costs when
compared to those of Bangalore and other large cities.
Kochi was selected following a search that looked at
quite a few Indian locations. Including Delhi, Pune, Hyderabad and Chennai,
added Kishore Mirchandani, Its a modern city with the sixth largest International
airport in India. We are optimistic about the skill sets has to offer. In particular,
it will allow a lot of talented people to work close to home, rather than make
them go to places like Bangalore and elsewhere to find rewarding jobs.
