Fargo, N.D.—June 20, 2012—Global consulting and IT services provider Mahindra Satyam announced the opening of its new delivery center in Fargo, N.D. The company intends to develop Fargo as a near-shore delivery location, offering innovative solutions in business processes and infrastructure management services sector and IT services.
Mahindra Satyam will share space with Cargill’s Global Business Services Center in Fargo. Cargill, the international producer and marketer of food, agricultural, financial & industrial products and services major had earlier selected Mahindra Satyam as their business service provider in North America. Together, they will create a regional delivery hub in Fargo.
“After a rigorous selection process, we have chosen Mahindra Satyam as our primary third-party service provider for North America,” said Al Johnson, Vice President, Cargill Global Business Services. “Mahindra Satyam has strong expertise in providing common business processes that meet Cargill’s needs.”
Americas as a region has been an important geography for the company. Verticals such as BFSI, Healthcare and Life Sciences form key growth areas for the company as they generate more than 50% of its revenue from the Americas market.
“Mahindra Satyam has always believed in creating avenues for capacity and capability building in the markets that it operates in,” said Sujit Baksi, Executive Chairman, Mahindra Satyam BSG. “The delivery center in Fargo will act as a strong foundation for our flagship Talent Exchange Program across geographies which enable local talent to acquire diverse skills and business process knowledge, while delivering an outstanding customer experience.”
The near-shore delivery center model has been quite successful for Mahindra Satyam and its clients. The company has near-shore delivery centers in Europe, the United Kingdom and now in North America.
“It will be our endeavor to provide excellent opportunities for local talent as we look forward to enhancing customer delight and delivering cost effective yet path-breaking solutions to the North American market,” said Lakshmanan Chidambaram, Senior Vice President, Sales & Operations, Americas, Mahindra Satyam.
With Mahindra Satyam’s domain expertise and customer base, the company will be able to strengthen its ability to address evolving market needs by establishing this center. Fargo is seen as a strategic location for the company, in terms of resource availability and competency development.
